Bride Makes 89-Year Old Grandmother a Bridesmaid
FOX8 -- Christine Quinn recently married her husband Patrick Quinn, and she had one of her best lifelong friends as a bridesmaid.

It was her 89-year-old grandmother, a.k.a. Nana Betty, according to Huffington Post.

Nana Betty even wore the same dress as the other bridesmaids.

"You're only as old as you feel and I feel young today," Nana Betty said on the wedding day, according to the bride.

The bride said it just made sense to have her Nana Betty in her wedding, as they truly are best friends.

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

The bride added that her grandmother wasn't so sure about being in the wedding at first.

"A few times she even said 'All of your bridesmaids are young and pretty, why would you want me?'"

Nana Betty had a great time though, even joining the bridal party on the party bus.

"She also danced the entire night away, including an adorable moment when she and my husband's grandmother, Bellsie, danced together. It was amazing," the bride added.
