Bride-to-be Christine Quinn was preparing for her wedding day and decided to ask her Nana Betty to stand by her side as a bridesmaid. What she didn’t expect was for the 89-year-old grandmother to accept her request. “She asked me about 10 times, ‘Are you sure?’ and ‘Why would you want an old lady in your bridal party?'” Christine told The Huffington Post. “A few times she even said ‘All of your bridesmaids are young and pretty, why would you want me?’ Obviously Nana is beautiful too. Just look at those photos!”
It turned out to be a wonderful turn events that Nana Betty agreed to her granddaughter’s request. She ended up making the celebration even more special and memorable than it already was, proving that age is just a number. “You’re only as old as you feel and I feel young today,” said the beautiful bridesmaid. She even got on the party bus with the rest of the wedding party and danced the night away. More than just celebrating the union of two people on this special day, it was also about celebrating the ageless joys of life.
