This bride included her grandad in her wedding in the BEST way

This story is glorious - and might give you an idea for your own big day, too!

 

If you're close to your grandparents and want to give them a special role in your wedding day, you might want to consider this idea.

An American bride has hit headlines after asking her beloved grandfather, Stanley, 85 years old, to be her 'Flower Grandpa' at her wedding ceremony last month - and the pictures are glorious.

MEET THE BRIDE WHO ASKED HER GRANNY TO BE HER BRIDESMAID!

Jennifer Briskin tied the knot with Austin Tansantisuk on October 1, and decided that Stanley would make the perfect addition to her wedding ceremony party.

Speaking to BuzzFeed about the decision to include Stanley in her nuptials in such a way, Jennifer revealed: "I always knew that I wanted him to play a special part in my wedding. I walk around a nearby park with him every Sunday where we enjoy talking about the stock market, his days as a popular DJ in Savannah, and Fitbit. We have a Fitbit step competition every week which he is very enthusiastic about".

Jennifer even 'popped the question' to Stanley in style, presenting him with these sweet invite to join her as she walked down the aisle...

The petal-scattering grandpop even joined his granddaughter on the dancefloor at the reception.
