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. Based upon the exhibition unCommon Threads: Stories of Missouri Brides which ran at the Missouri History Museum in the summer of 2007, this website features 19th and 20th-century garments and photos, tales about brides, information about the wedding fashion industry in St. Louis, stories and memories from the general public, and many other treasures from the museumís vast collections. Come explore . . . and be sure to upload your own story!
