Bridal Exhibit Continues Through October

There’s still time for “Summer Weddings,” a bridal historical exhibit at the Bond-Hawley House through October. The exhibit spans over 140 years. You’ll see 1870s bridal gowns in shades of blue, burgundy and gray, perfect for wearing again as your Sunday best. Post-World War I gowns have that flapperish look, with dropped waists and rising hems. Brides of the 1960s chose floppy hats over veils, and 10 years hence, ’70s brides carried parasols. Not to be outdone by the ladies, the fellows sported morning coats, pinstripes, top hats and circa 1940s Army green designed by that fashion icon, Uncle Sam.  See the exhibit Saturdays and Mondays from 1-4 pm.
