Traditionally, flower girls are aged between three to ten years of age, but when Josh and Maggie Wakefield got married recently; their flower girls were somewhat old! The two flower girls had a combined age of 149 years.
How? Because their grandmas were flower girls! The couple honored their grandmas in the sweetest way possible on their wedding day ― by asking them to become co-flower girls.
The bride said that she always had a special bond with her grandma.
“She is like a second mother to me, I have so many fond memories of my sister and I sleeping over at my grandmother’s house as children making homemade sugar cookies. My grandparents have been a huge support in my life and I learned to really value their opinions and stories.”
She says that the groom is also close with his grandma:
“She has been a huge influence in Josh’s life,” Maggie said. “She is one of the most caring, gentle and thoughtful women that I know. Having our grandmothers as the flower girls meant the world to us!” she said
