Curated by Kathleen Motes Bennewitz, Wedding Traditions and Fashion from the 1860s to the 1930s will feature lavish gowns modeled on Queen Victoria’s wedding and highlighted in nuptials of young American heiresses of Gilded Age fortunes, as well as simple dresses and artifacts of at-home ceremonies of immigrant brides who, once settled in the United States, desired to follow American customs and fashions.
