Exhibitionism At Its Finest

Love, Family

A new exhibit offers a 365-degree view of the sacred union.

Wedding plan can get turn into a bit of a burden. A few months in, and you’ve had it up to here with coordinating the flatware with the table linens.

If you happen to be in Boston this weekend, take a breather (back away from the wedding-planning binder!) and remember why you’re getting hitched in the first place with the opening of Peabody Essex Museum’s Wedded Bliss, the Marriage of Art and Ceremony. The exhibit spans four continents and three centuries, bringing matrimony to life, from paintings (Picasso! Chagall!) and ceremonial objects to couture gowns (fashion!) and rare jewelry.

If you’re not in the neighborhood this weekend, the exhibit runs through September 14th, so there’s plenty of time to make a weekend getaway out of it. (Just don't let planning the trip turn you into a bridezilla, too...)

Visit Peabody Essex Museum for more info.
