Ardmore Museum to Showcase New Exhibit of Wedding Dresses

Posted:

ARDMORE,OK--Also part of the something old, something new, and something blue theme are antique wedding dresses from the southern Oklahoma area.

In the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, wedding dresses were, surprisingly, not usually white.

The Greater Southwest Historical Museum is looking for some of those unique dresses.

"Our curator is specifically looking to include a blue wedding dress in the exhibit so if anybody has something like that, that would be appreciated," said Assistant Curator Christina Smith, "but we're always looking to add artifacts to our collection just to represent the history of south central Oklahoma and Ardmore and Carter County in particular."

The dresses will be set up as part of the exhibit that will open on September 11th.
