Bride Asks Her 4 Grandmas To Be Her Flower Girls & They’re Adorably Sassy

While traditional wedding parties usually feature younger children in the role of flower girl, Tennessee bride Lyndsey Raby decided to go a different route, instead inviting her four grandmas to take on the role, and they happily obliged.

Scroll down to learn more about the big day and see some incredible photos from the wedding.

  1. They looked so amazing! According to Insider, 90-year-old Kathleen Brown, 70-year-old Joyce Raby, 76-year-old Wanda Grant, and 72-year-old Betty Brown were totally thrilled to be part of Raby’s bridal party, and they definitely looked amazing in matching blue lace suits and jackets.
  2. Wedding photographer Natalie Caho was impressed by their attitudes. “When Lyndsey told me she was having her grandmothers as her flower girls, I was not expecting the level of sass that these girls brought!” Caho admitted. “Their energy all day was that of a little girl who is in the same position and they had so much fun all day being such a big part of Lyndsey’s day and sharing the spotlight with her. It truly just goes to show that age is just a number.”
  3. Raby wanted to include her grandmothers in her big day from the moment she got engaged. “I felt so blessed to have them all here so I wanted them to be involved too,” Raby told the Huffington Post.
  4. Not everyone is lucky enough to have their grandparents around. As Caho rightfully pointed out to the Huffington Post, “Most girls are lucky to even have one grandmother present. And the fact that [Lyndsey] had four was a big deal that she wanted to savor.”
  5. Weddings are supposed to be special and this obviously was. It goes to show that you don’t have to follow conventional rules to be amazing. In fact, it’s all about making the ceremony your own, ensuring it’s memorable and special to you in whatever way you find meaningful. Raby knew her day wouldn’t be complete without her grandmas and it’s certainly a day she’ll never forget.
