WHS presents – Something Old, Something New: Connecticut Weddings Through the Ages – March 3, 2019, 2:00 pm – Keeney Memorial Cultural Center

On Sunday, March 3, 2019 at 2:00 pm, the Wethersfield Historical Society welcomes Natalie Belanger of the Connecticut Historical Society presenting their traveling program “Something Old, Something New: Connecticut Weddings Through the Ages” at the Keeney Memorial Cultural Center, 200 Main Street, Wethersfield, CT  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’ 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. Admission is $5.00 for the General Public and free to Wethersfield Historical Society Members. There are no advanced ticket sales. Doors will open at 1:30 pm and seating will be on a first come – first served basis.
