Beyond the workmanship of silk and lace, a wedding gown tells the story of the woman who wore it and the time in which she lived. Featuring garments, photographs and other treasures from the Missouri History Museum's extensive collections, "unCommon Threads: Stories of Missouri Brides" explores 19th and 20th century fashion and matrimonial customs. Organized by the Missouri History Museum, the exhibition features twenty-two outstanding examples of wedding attire "ranging from homespun to haute couture " that bring to vivid life the deeply personal stories of the Missouri women who wore the cherished clothing on their wedding day.
