'I Do, I Do'

A SPECIAL and poignant “unveiling” took place at the Old Post Office Museum this week in preparation for the upcoming “I Do I Do” exhibit.  Karla Wiggers and her daughter Mary Bess are seen unboxing Wiggers' wedding dress from 1982 to share as part of the exhibit which will showcase wedding dresses at least 25 years old from some Franklin Parish residents.  The dresses will be examples of many different styles and will focus on  the unique stories of those weddings over the years.  The Princess Theatre will also be presenting the musical, “I Do I Do,” on Feb. 13, 14, and 15, which will showcase the special partnership between the two arts organizations in historic downtown Winnsboro.  The wedding exhibit will be open to the public with a reception on Jan. 16 from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. and will remain on display through Feb. 28, during the museum’s regular hours, 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday-Friday.  The exhibit will also be a featured part of the Princess Theatre’s production and ticket holders are encouraged to visit the museum prior to curtain time on the )evenings of the performance.
