The Mallala Museum held an exhibition of wedding gowns from their collection during History Month May 2018. The event called "Down the Aisle - Wedding dresses through the years" featured 19 gowns displayed throughout the museum.

Christina Grace Roberts married James David Dow (both of Barabba S.A.) in the Owen Methodist Church on 30th October 1917. Christina's two piece wedding gown was made of ivory silk. The full length skirt had unpressed pleats. The hip length jacket featured a military look with epaulettes on the shoulders, waist and long sleeves. A feminine touch was the insert of lace at the neckline where Christina pinned a pretty brooch. As she had to travel to the church by horse and buggy Christina covered her dress with a heavy silk dust coat - also on display.
