Christina and Alexander Moffet got married in October 2019.

When it came time to pick out a dress, Christina started her search by trying on the gowns her family members wore at their own weddings.

It turned out the dress her grandmother had worn on her wedding day in 1956 was a perfect fit.

"I was wearing the hoop skirt, so I immediately was twirling and beaming. My mom said she knew right away that my grandma's dress was the one," Christina told Insider.

She shared a side-by-side photo of the dress on Reddit and it ended up getting over 71,000 upvotes.

Christina added that her grandmother was there to witness the occasion and "she was thrilled."

Christina and Alexander also decided to honeymoon in Michigan — exactly where her grandmother did in 1956.
