Bride Asks Four Grandmas to Be Flower Girls for Wedding — They Said Yes!

Tennessee newlyweds Lyndsey and Tanner Raby decided to have their four grandmothers/great-grandmothers in their wedding as flower girls.

“I knew as soon as I was engaged, I wanted to involve my grandmothers,” the bride told HuffPost. “I felt so blessed to have them all here, so I wanted them to be involved, too.”

Raby says anyone lucky enough to have their grandparents present at their wedding should ask them to be a part of the ceremony. She said, the ladies were “ecstatic” to be part of the wedding on Sept. 22. “I do believe they were more excited than my bridesmaids.”

The grand-flower-women included Tanner’s grandmother, Joyce Raby, 70; Lyndsey’s two grandmothers, Betty Brown, 72, and Wanda Grant, 76; and her 90-year-old great-grandmother, Kathleen Brown.

Wedding photographer Natalie Caho shared an image on Instagram of the four women wearing matching pale blue lace dresses, posing around the smiling bride.
