So sweet! This bride had her 89-year-old grandma be one of her bridesmaids
When you’re planning a wedding, one of the first things you do is name the bridal party. Who do you want standing up there with you, sharing the day with you and smiling in your wedding photos? You want to be surrounded by your besties on your big day! When Christine Quinn recently said I do in Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania, she was in the company of her lifelong bestie—her grandmother!
For Quinn, the decision to include her Nana, Betty, in the bridal party was a no-brainer. They’re truly BFFs IRL, so why not? Nana Betty was hesitant at first, not wanting to be the center of attention. But she agreed, and we’re so glad she did. She even rode the bridal party bus, rocked the same bridesmaids dress as the other girls and danced the night away!
“While she doesn’t live that close, we have continually made it a point to spend as much time together as possible,” Quinn told The Huffington Post. “She just has an amazing sense of humor and outlook on life that I strive to emulate every day. Everyone loves her.”
Who says your bridal party can’t include a grandmother? Their wedding sounds like one of the happiest, most joyful occasions of the season. Look at Nana’s smile!
“She had the entire wedding party laughing with her words of wisdom and funny comments throughout the day,” Quinn said.
Beautiful wedding. Beautiful couple. Beautiful story! What a special day and special moment for a grandmother and granddaughter to share. They will truly cherish this sweet memory.
“You’re only as old as you feel and I feel young today,” Nana Betty told Quinn on the big day. Can she please be in my wedding too?
