Jersey County Historical Society to continue wedding tour

JERSEYVILLE – Due to its recognition, the Jersey County Historic Modern society will keep on Tying the Knot: The History of Wedding ceremony Traditions by means of July.

All 33 marriage dresses on show, which day from 1868 to 1979, had been worn by Jersey County citizens.

“Nearly every single visitor on our excursions has recognized at least a person bride whose robe is on display,” reported Historical Modern society Vice President Beth McGlasson, a single of 3 guides for the tour.

“We’ve adjusted the tour this year to let visitors time to analyze the attire. This also offers us an prospect to chat with guests. It’s been a whole lot of fun reminiscing with attendees about weddings and how traits have adjusted more than the a long time,” McGlasson claimed. “I’ve uncovered a lot on these excursions. For instance, when Anita Hagen Kraut dropped off her marriage ceremony album, she pointed out a picture of her and her husband kissing at the church entrance. She instructed me the picture was noteworthy because when they married in 1969, partners weren’t authorized to kiss at the alter. I had no plan.”

The Historical Modern society hopes community women’s teams – ebook, card, supper clubs, and so on. – will do the wedding day tour. “I know they’ll enjoy the trip down memory lane, and I’m sure they have some appealing tales to share,” McGlasson provides.
