It’s a bride’s prerogative to choose her bridesmaids. One bride’s unexpected choice is going viral. The heartwarming story of who she included is taking off around the web, and breaking stereotypes. When she chose her wedding party, Christine Quinn asked her 89 year-old grandmother, Betty, often called Nana Betty, to take part in her wedding as a bridesmaid. The bride treasures her grandmother’s humor and outlook on life.
Her grandmother kept asking, “Are you sure?” and expressed self-consciousness about her role amid the young and pretty members of the bridal party. Nonetheless, even though she doesn’t like being the center of attention, the bride’s great friend and elder relative agreed. Wearing a mauve dress with sheer cape style sleeves like the other bridesmaids, Quinn’s grandmother looked radiant. She was a hit with everyone at the wedding.
Staying Young and Involved With Family
Declaring “You’re only as old as you feel, and I feel young today,” Betty danced into the night on her granddaughter’s special day. The groom’s grandmother, Bellsie, danced with her, too. They showed age is no barrier to celebrating and living life to the fullest.
The bride has always been close to her grandmother and spends as much time with her as she can even though they live at a distance from each other. Her grandmother kept the wedding party laughing and people treasured her part in the ceremony. Her wisdom, levity and loving heart made her a favorite participant in her granddaughter’s wedding day.
