2018 Museum Exhibit

Wedding Bells

Such anticipation!  Such excitement!  Preparing for a wedding is a huge undertaking.  In big cities and in small towns, all brides and grooms and their families go through a set of rituals, traditions and expectations.

This exhibit will highlight the time of engagement to the time of the honeymoon trip.  Many businesses will be highlighted that are connected to the wedding process: jewelers, newspapers, photographers, florists, bakeries, gift stores, etc.

Ceremonies can happen in churches, City Hall, parks and homes.  Wedding gowns and men’s suits, as well as family clothing for the special event (Mother of the Bride) will be displayed.  Gifts to the wedding couple and furniture for the new home will be featured.  And travel to the honeymoon will have its spot also.

A beautiful time with beautiful adornments…this will be an exhibit you will not want to miss!

Come one, come all!  The Grand Ledge Area Historical Society Museum is fun for all ages!  We hope to see you there!

This exhibit will begin in April or May and will be open through December.  Watch for an announcement on the opening date.

Make sure to check out the Country Schools and Grand Ledge Sports display at the City Hall also!
