The Greater Vernon Museum and Archives has turned several whiter shades of pale with its new exhibit.
The Evolution of the Wedding Gown is the brainchild of museum archivist Barbara Bell and registrar June Mitchell, who both agreed the museum could use a little feminine touch.
“The exhibit is something they’ve both had in the back of their minds for some time and has finally come to fruition,” said museum marketing and communications coordinator Denise Marsh.
“This beautiful display showcases a selection of wedding gowns from the museum’s large collection.”
Spanning seven decades, the earliest wedding gown on exhibit dates back to 1908, with the most recent worn in 1961.
Text describes how and why styles changed over the years and explains the origins of the white dress that is still the preferred choice of most brides today.
To view the exhibit, drop by the Greater Vernon Museum and Archives during its regular hours of 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday to Saturday.
