Philadelphia native Christine Quinn asked her 89 year old grandmother to be a bridesmaid at her wedding. While most girls want their friends or sisters as bridesmaids Christine knew her grandmother, Nana Betty, would be the perfect fit!
“She asked me about 10 times, ‘Are you sure?’ and ‘Why would you want an old lady in your bridal party?'”
Nevertheless, Christine insisted so her grandma agreed. Nana Betty turned out to be quite the party lover!
“She had the entire wedding party laughing with her words of wisdom and funny comments throughout the day,”
“Nana got on the party bus with the rest of the wedding party instead of ‘going home to rest’ but did not tell my mom (her daughter). She also danced the entire night away, including an adorable moment when she and my husband’s grandmother, Bellsie, danced together. It was amazing.”
“You’re only as old as you feel and I feel young today,” Nana Betty told the young bride.
