F4T: You're Invited...



...to see two fabulous wedding exhibitions, both on view through September 18th!



Invitation to a Wedding: Ukrainian Wedding Textiles and Traditions at the Ukrainian Museum in New York City: Explore the many components of the traditional Ukrainian wedding through a display of over 150 objects, including ritual cloths, men’s and women’s embroidered shirts, elaborate headdresses, and 24 complete wedding ensembles. The exhibition traces the progression of these multi-stage events from the matchmaking process to the betrothal and blessing to the ceremony and reception.




Christian Dior, Wedding Ensemble: Dress, Crinoline and Headpiece, 1954 from the Cincinnati Art Museum







Wedded Perfection: Two Centuries of Wedding Gowns at the Munson Williams Proctor Institute in Utica, NY: This show examines the allure of the white wedding gown and its "present iconic stature" with 50+ stunning wedding gowns from the late 1700s to today, including gowns by designers Christian Dior (above) and Vera Wang. The dresses are on loan from the Cincinnati Art Museum.

Wow! The train is like a sea of foam!
As a child, I gazed at wedding dress shops whenever we went to town (which was infrequently). They made me think of fairy tales and princesses.

What amazing exhibits-I'm such a sucker for vintage wedding gowns. My mom and I always take about recreating my grandmother and her four sisters' gowns for a lesson in historical design (and for the excuse to buy lots and lots of Chantilly lace)!
