You're never too old to be a flower girl, according to a Tennessee woman who asked her grandmothers to serve a special role on her wedding day.
Bride Lyndsey Raby told the Huffington Post that she knew as soon as she became engaged that she wanted her four grandmothers to be in her wedding. Raby said she felt blessed that her 90-year-old great-grandmother, Kathleen Brown; the groom’s 70-year-old grandmother, Joyce Raby; the bride’s 76-year-old grandmother, Wanda Grant; and the bride’s 72-year-old grandmother, Betty Brown, were all able to participate in the wedding.
Today my inbox was flooded with press I never dreamed of speaking with but they caught wind of the cuteness from @lyndseygrantraby ‘s wedding involving FOUR of her grandmothers as flower girls after @huffpost shared the story and wanted the deetz. You might see these sweet souls on your local @wrcbtv News Channel 3 tonight and wake up to their smiling faces tomorrow on @thetodayshow to name a few... if you’re on the fence about having something outside the ordinary at your wedding just do it! Especially if it means something as sweet as this did to you and your family.
The grandmothers were more excited than the bridesmaids to be in the wedding, Raby told the Huffington Post.
Photographer Natalie Caho shared photos of the wedding on Instagram, writing, "I’ve seen a lot of cute flower girls in my day ... but these four gals take the cake."
