Have you ever wondered where some of the traditions seen countless times at wedding ceremonies and receptions around the country originated? Brides didn't always wear white on their big day and vows weren't always exchanged in church. Head on over to the Chicago History Museum on 1601 North Clark, where for $12 to $14 you can discover where and why your favorite--and most questioned--wedding traditions began at "I Do! Chicago Ties the Knot". As a bonus, check out incredible wedding dresses throughout history. Who knows--you just might be inspired to start a tradition of your own.

Now through January 2011
