Nana Betty, an 89-year-old grandma graced her granddaughter’s wedding as one of her bride’s maid. Bride Christine Quinn is so close with her she decided to ditch tradition and invite her to be her bridesmaid.
Bride Quinn considers her nana to be one of her best friends, so she decided to have her as one of her dearest companions stand next to her as she says “I do?”
‘’ Grandma-Nana Betty had the entire wedding party laughing with her words of wisdom and funny comments throughout the day’’ says her granddaughter.
” She also danced the entire night away, including an adorable moment when she and my husband’s grandmother, Bellsie, danced together. It was amazing.”
When Quinn asked Nana Betty, asked her grand mum to be her bridesmaid, she wondered why, as old as she looks in the midst of the younger brides maids
“She asked me about 10 times, ‘Are you sure?’ and ‘Why would you want an old lady in your bridal party?’” Quinn said. “A few times she even said ‘All of your bridesmaids are young and pretty, why would you want me?
Nana betty on the wedding day said; You’re only as old as you feel and I feel young today,”,
Wearing a smoky plum tulle convertible gown, just like the rest of the wedding party.
According to the bride, “While she doesn’t live that close, we have continually made it a point to spend as much time together as possible,”
The bride went further to explain her relationship with her grandma. “She just has an amazing sense of humour and outlook on life that I strive to emulate every day. Everyone loves her.”
