Queensland Museum is showcasing 180 years of love stories as part of their exhibition I Do! Wedding Stories From Queensland.

It tells the stories of Queenslanders who have celebrated getting married, and highlights the social, economic and political changes in Australian society – including the fact that same-sex couples are now, of course, legally allowed to marry!

"I Do! is exclusive to Queensland Museum and we are very proud to deliver an exhibition that has been curated in–house, with 30 of the ensembles on display from our own collection," Queensland Museum Network CEO Dr Jim Thompson says.

"The exhibition is more than a showcase of wedding fashion over 180 years, it provides an insight into cultural traditions, circumstances and also delves into legislation changes."

One of the highlights of the wedding is the suits worn by the state's first legally married same-sex couple, Craig Burns and Luke Sullivan.

I Do! is on at Queensland Museum now until 21 February.
