Wedding 396: Four Centuries of Wedding Fashion from the First
Plymouth Colony Marriage in 1621 to the Present

Exhibit generously sponsored by Eastern Bank and Tracy Chevrolet Cadillac with additional support from Market Basket
On Display: Saturday, May 13th through December 30th, 2017

What do you wear on the most important day of your life? Trace the evolution of wedding fashion from the first Plymouth Colony wedding in 1621 to today! Over two dozen vintage wedding gowns and hundreds of South Shore wedding images are gloriously displayed to reveal the interplay of tradition and innovation over 396 years of New England wedding history.

A highlight of the exhibition is a multimedia display featuring hundreds of real-life wedding images from the past 150 years, crowdsourced through a participatory community digitization project that invited area residents to share their own wedding histories.

2018 UPCOMING EVENTS - coming soon!



Looking toward the Future!
In 2020, we will commemorate the 400th anniversary of the landing of the Pilgrims at Plymouth
(and the 200th anniversary of the founding of the Pilgrim Society).
