[308] True Blue MTSU goes red for Feb. 28 event at Oaklands Mansion

MURFREESBORO — An MTSU-sponsored event will have brides and brides-to-be seeing red.

The event, titled “Red: The Heart of the Wedding,” is slated for 6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 28, at Oaklands Mansion, 900 N. Maney Ave. in Murfreesboro. It is hosted by Oaklands Mansion and the MTSU student chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers.

Amanda Farris, a Nashville, Tennessee-based designer account executive with Sherwin-Williams Paints and an MTSU alumna, will deliver a presentation titled “Seeing Red” on the history and use of the color red in interiors. Following the event, attendees are invited to enjoy Oaklands’ “Wedding Dresses Through the Decades” exhibit.

The array of more than 50 gowns from the 19th through the 21st centuries include country music star Barbara Mandrell’s wedding gown and attire from the 25th anniversary renewal of her vows with her husband, Ken Dudney. This exhibit is sponsored in part by MTSU’s Department of Human Sciences.
