In 1966, Carole-Ann and Jim Stanfield were married. They had no idea what the future would hold, but 50 years and a few grandchildren later, they found themselves in the exact same clothes. While not many people could go into their closets and fit into their outfits from young adulthood, these two had no idea what to expect!
Their granddaughter, Haley, wanted to look through old family photos, and when Jim went to find the albums…he came back with their wedding garb instead. Haley begged the couple to try on the clothing, and after a lot of persuasion, they agreed.
To their surprise, the outfits fit perfectly!
At their 50th wedding anniversary, Carole-Ann and Jim showed up in their wedding clothes, looking just as in love as they did half a century ago. They were stunning!
They traveled to Malta for their honeymoon 50 years ago, but are now considering a trip to Turkey to mark the occasion.
Many people were inspired to see if their own wedding clothing fit! The idea of being able to slip into that same gown, that same tux, after 50 years of marriage is just too sweet to pass up! For those who don’t, they have kept the clothing safe for their children and grandchildren, hoping that one day, the sentimental value will live on once again.
