WHS presents “Traditions Carried Forward; a Bridal Showcase of Old Wethersfield” Saturday, February 29, 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm

Please join us for “Traditions Carried Forward; a Bridal Showcase of Old Wethersfield” on Saturday, February 29th from 12-4 PM at the  Keeney Memorial Cultural Center (200 Main Street) and the elegant Hurlbut-Dunham House next door. Brides-to-be can enjoy the charming surroundings and envision their upcoming celebration in one of newengland.com’s “Prettiest Winter Villages”. Local wedding and event specialists will be on hand to share ideas, trends, and traditions re-imagined for that special day. Also the historical society’s exhibit “Wethersfield Wedding Traditions” will be open during the showcase, featuring rare gowns from the 19th century and formal attire from around the world to provide inspiration from the past.

Curated vendors will provide carefully selected wines and champagne, delicious baked goods, and sample tastings of food from the area’s finest chefs. Exclusive packages will be made available to attendees from top-of-the-line photographers, rental companies, musician/DJs, dance studios, and jewelers. Wethersfield Travel will be on hand to assist with your honeymoon planning and Wethersfield’s own Larissa Lake and Co. founder Larissa Lake will offer a special hair and makeup demonstration.

Traditions Carried Forward isn’t just for those with a wedding in the near future. Any one planning a social gathering of any size – a significant anniversary, a major birthday, or a party “just because” – should attend to see the wide variety of locally available services (and venues) to turn any event into a memorable occasion.

Admission is $10.00. Tickets can be purchased in advance by clicking here  or at the Old Academy (150 Main Street)Tuesday through Friday 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. The first 25 attendees will receive a unique “swag bag” and all attendees will be entered into a grand prize drawing. Ample free parking is available behind the Keeney Center.
