You’re never too old to be a bridesmaid.

Christine Quinn didn’t think twice about asking her Nana Betty to be one of her bridesmaids.

“The decision was easy given the strength of our relationship,” Christine explained. “Who doesn’t want her best friend standing beside her on her wedding day?”

Although Betty was reluctant at first, she eventually agreed and proudly stood next to her granddaughter as she married Patrick in Pennsylvania on 2 May.

'You’re only as old as you feel and I feel young today'
And, as Christine revealed, Betty, who was happily married to her grandfather for more than 50 years, was the life and soul of the party. “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 told Huff Post.
“She also danced the entire night away, including an adorable moment when she and my husband’s grandmother, Bellsie, danced together. It was amazing.” Christine was also helpful in calming wedding jitters. Christine said her granny asked her ‘Are you happy?’ before the ceremony, to which she responded ‘yes’. “Good, that’s all I need to hear. Let’s get this show on the road,” she reportedly said.

She later told Christine she had a great time at the wedding.

“You’re only as old as you feel and I feel young today.”
