The Alexander Noble House in Fish Creek is ushering in its 2019 season with something old, something new, a few things borrowed and a few things blue as it celebrates wedding gowns, traditions and customs through its returning exhibit, “Victorian Weddings.”

Rhymes seemed to dictate many parts of Victorian-era weddings, as the old but still popular “Something Old, Something New,” goes, which dictated what a bride should wear, from whom it should come from, and what wearing it would guarantee (the rhyme’s oft-left out final line “And a sixpence in the shoe,” guaranteed wealth and prosperity).

The museum has more than a dozen dresses on display, from the oldest – a German Bavarian dress from the 1850s, complete with bonnet, silk tapestry and an intricate choker – to its most modern, a simple white number from 1959-60.
