Presentation on ‘Something Old, Something New’ at Old Lyme Library Tonight

Appropriately timed for Valentine’s Day on Thursday, Taylor McClure, a museum educator at the Connecticut Historical Society, will present, “Something Old, Something New: Connecticut Weddings Through the Ages,” at the Old Lyme Phoebe Griffin Noyes Library on Wednesday, Feb. 13, at 6:30 p.m.

McClure will walk attendees down the metaphorical aisle from colonial times to modern times. Did you ever wonder how Nutmeggers have tied the knot over the years, how they celebrated and what they wore?  And how did some of our cherished wedding customs originate?

This program uses Connecticut Historical Society’s extensive collection of wedding clothing, accessories, photographs and prints to examine some of our ideas about what makes a “traditional” wedding. McClure will also explore those traditions to reveal how ideas about marriage have changed through the ages.
