How can you not be completely fucking charmed by these grandmas as flower girls at Lana & Michael's wedding? When I saw these two, I pretty much said "awwwwww" until I completely deflated like a balloon. Say it with me now: Awwwwwwwwwwwww…

  1. I love that the headline to this makes it sound like I'd be buying them in. Is there a place for hiring grandmas?

    Gorgeous pictures.

  2. omg!!! This actually made my eyes water. Wish we still had our grandmas so we could do this :*) So awesome.

    5 agree
  3. You're so welcome! I had the same reaction when I came across them on Pinterest (hooray Pinterest!). It's the sweetest thing I've seen in for-ev-ah and I so hope one of my clients wants to do this some day.

  4. I would like to know more about the list of names behind them in the last photo… is that a list of all the couples and how long they have been married?

  5. That would definitely not work for me, unfortunately. I have three grandmothers (one is my dad's stepmom), and let's just say one of them stole the other's husband. Because that's what happened. I love all of them to bits, but I'd rather not have an old lady catfight in the middle of my ceremony

  6. This is amazing!!!! We did not have any flower girl, but I wish my grandmothers were still around for this! They would rock this 🙂

  7. Love this idea! Unfortunately my granny hated me as I was adopted and made it known from a young age I wasn't part of her family. Still, when I'm a granny myself I would love to do this. They both look so happy. 😀

  8. I love the idea, but why use the f word in the description? So unnecessary to use such a harsh word for such a sweet idea.

  9. Love this idea! Its the first OBB article I ever found and made me sign up and buy the book!

    We really want to do this at our wedding, with my great-aunt and Rick's grandma. We want to ask them soon as our wedding is in 3 years time, and it will give them something to look forward to.

    Problem is we want to give them an official title, but not flower girl. Our wedding party is small – _2 best men, and my brother as a groomsman. My mum is walking me down the aisle. My auntie never married, but ricks grandma did, and I don't want to upset / be seen as patronising them, but for me it's super important as my auntie is my only other close family, so I want her included.

    Age wise if it helps, grandma will be 100, my auntie will be 87

    Any suggestions would be very welcome!!

    • flower bearers?

      Hm, now that I think about I think I like 'bearer' even if the person is a little girl….

      1 agrees
      • Thanks Dee! We spoke to both ladies at the weekend, and after spending the entire car journey trying to think, Rick blurted out 'will you be our Floral Lady of Honour?'! So we're going with that lol. 🙂
