When Christine Quinn asked her 89-year-old grandmother, Nana Betty, to be a bridesmaid at her wedding, she wasn’t sure to expect. At the wedding, just a few months later, Nana Betty turned out to be the life of the party!
“She had the entire wedding party laughing with her words of wisdom and funny comments throughout the day,” Quinn, who enjoys a close friendship with her grandmother, told Huffpost. “Nana got on the party bus with the rest of the wedding party instead of ‘going home to rest’ but did not tell my mom (her daughter). She also danced the entire night away, including an adorable moment when she and my husband’s grandmother, Bellsie, danced together. It was amazing.”
“You’re only as old as you feel and I feel young today,” Nana Betty told Quinn. We’ll all grow old, but we don’t necessarily have to grow up!
“She asked me about 10 times, ‘Are you sure?’ and ‘Why would you want an old lady in your bridal party?’”
“She had the entire wedding party laughing with her words of wisdom and funny comments throughout the day”
“She just has an amazing sense of humor and outlook on life that I strive to emulate every day. Everyone loves her”
