  • Wedding Gowns

    There is a new exhibit of wedding gowns at the Robert Vial House. Since our last wedding display in 2018 we have acquired six more wedding gowns and four bridesmaid dresses. We decided to display them this summer despite our Covid 19 restrictions. Hopefully this look at weddings past will warm our hearts a little in these strange times. May this remind us of the many couples who have had to postpone or modify their wedding plans this year and who will have all this to look back on as they celebrate through the years.
