This bride included her grandmothers in her wedding in the SWEETEST way

You're going to want to steal Yasmine Parker's thoughtful idea...

Okay; we officially adore this idea.

Yasmine Parker and Ricardo De Salis tied the knot last month in a beautiful celebration held in Sydney, Australia, and decided to do something a little different to honour their three grandmothers on their wedding day.

Whilst tradition suggests a bride should be accompanied by a toddler-aged flower girl, the happy couple opted for something a little different, deciding to ask the trio (Jean, aged 88, Doreen, 93, and Rouhanieh, 96) to be their flower grannies for the day.


Yes, you read that correctly - and yes, that 'aw - amazing!' reaction you're having right now is entirely warranted and appropriate.

The emotional ceremony saw the three women accompanying Yasmine down the aisle, supported by frames and walking sticks.

Speaking to Daily Mail Australia, stunning bride Yasmine said: "It was actually my husband Ricardo's idea. He had a lot of children in his family and I had a few but we weren't inviting them due to space limitations so he suggested our grandmothers".

She added: "The three of them are very precious to us and when we asked them to be our flower girls they were so proud and honoured. They were over the moon".

Family-oriented Yasmine also included her mum in amongst her bridesmaids, with photographer James Day capturing the below gorgeous shot.

Congratulations to the happy couple on their glorious wedding day - and for including their family so beautifully!
