New Canaan exhibit showcases how wedding gowns have changed over time
An exhibit in New Canaan showcases how wedding gown styles have shifted throughout the centuries.
The "I Do, The History of Wedding Fashion and Tradition" exhibit at the New Canaan Historical Society shows how time transformed veils, slippers and gowns.
The oldest, from 1822, was worn by a relative of a famous founding father.
"I traced it all the way back to Eliza Schuyler, who married Alexander Hamilton, so that was kind of cool," said clothing historian, Charlotte Engel.
The exhibit runs through Sept. 30.
