Bride Asks 89-Year-Old Grandma to Be a Bridesmaid & She Steals the Show

granny drinking martiniWhen it comes to weddings, we often expect the bride to be the center of attention. But for Pennsylvania bride Christine Quinn who tied the knot in May, it was her awesomely adorable 89-year-old grandmother-turned-bridesmaid who has gone viral and stolen the show in the best possible way.


Yep, you've got to love an almost-90-year-old who currently has her own hashtag on Twitter. (Check out #nanabetty for all the fun!)

We love that the bride not only wanted to honor her close relationship with her grandma this way, but also that Nana Betty is showing that you are never too old to rock a bridesmaid dress and to have all the fun of participating in a wedding.

As Julie Melton of Sweetwater Portraits noted on her blog:

Nana Betty could keep up with the non-stop shenanigans (read non-stop laughter)!

Quinn also told the Huffington Post of her relationship with Betty:

While she doesn’t live that close, we have continually made it a point to spend as much time together as possible. She just has an amazing sense of humor and outlook on life that I strive to emulate every day. Everyone loves her.


And we'd love to see this become a trend. Cute grandmas for every wedding party? Yes, please!
