Ladies! Would You Choose Your Grandma as Your Maid of Honour?



dorothyshapiro1Hey Ladies! Would you consider making your grandma your maid/matron of honour?

That’s exactly what American bride, Jamie Jacobs, did, Huffington Post reports.

Jacob was having trouble narrowing down her potential list of bridesmaids, and so she came up with the ultimate remedy – making her 95-year-old grandmother, Dorothy Shapiro, her matron of honour.

Not only was Shapiro the matron of honour, she was also the only bridesmaid Jacobs had on her bridal train.

“That was one of the biggest honors that a grandmother could have – that she chose me, an old lady,” Shapiro said.  “I was worried I wouldn’t be able to walk down the aisle but I did it like a real trouper.”

Watch grandma Shapiro talk about how much fun she had being her granddaughter’s matron of honour:

      *Sigh*. Where was it said that she lacked good friends. READ the story. She was having trouble narrowing down her list. That means she had a lot of good friends but could not decide on which ones to make bridesmaids and which to leave out.

    How sweet. This girl is smart. You reduced unnecessary stress for yourself and gave that woman the honor no other person could have given her. That was great sacrifice on your part girl but you chose honor over flamboyance. I pray that the Lord honors you and makes marriage beautiful and lasting for you too.
