Something Old, Something New: Connecticut Weddings Through the Ages

From colonial to modern times, how did Connecticans tie the knot? How did they celebrate? What did they wear? And how did some of our cherished wedding customs originate? This program uses CHS's extensive collection of wedding clothing, accessories, photographs and prints to examine some of our ideas about what makes a "traditional" wedding, and what those traditions can reveal about how ideas about marriage have changed through the years.

Includes Light Lunch ~ Donation welcome
