An 89-Year-Old Grandma Steals the Show as A Bridesmaid in Granddaughter’s Wedding





Who says there are age limits for bridesmaids? An 89-year-old grandmother named Betty Govern a.k.a. Nana Betty proved that no one is too old to be a bridesmaid. Her granddaughter Christine Quinn invited her to her wedding with Patrick Quinn in Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania. Although she didn’t expect Betty to say yes, the groovy grandmother did grant the bride’s request.

Speaking to Huffington Post, Christine revealed that picking Betty as her bridesmaid was a no-brainer since she considers her as one of her best friends.

According to here:

“She just has an amazing sense of humor and outlook on life that I strive to emulate every day. Everyone loves her.”

Surprisingly, the elderly woman became the life of the party at Christine’s wedding. Instead of skipping the party to sleep early, Betty decided to have a fun night with the rest of the guests.

The bride added:

“She also danced the entire night away, including an adorable moment when she and my husband’s grandmother, Bellsie, danced together. It was amazing.”

Betty even imparted an important lesson to Christine:

“You’re only as old as you feel and I feel young today.We’ll all grow old, but we don’t necessarily have to grow up!”

Here are some of the photos from the wedding.
