Bride And Groom Asked Grandparents To Be Flower Girls, And They Rocked It.

The typical wedding ceremony doesn't have a ton of surprises: The groom stands on the altar, waiting for his bride. The bridal party walks down the aisle, followed by the flower girls, and eventually, the blushing bride heads down with her escort, preparing to be given away. There's a beauty in the predictable, sweet tradition of it all -- but it's even more awesome when a couple decides to turn a few traditions on their heads.

Maggie Wakefield and her groom wanted to do just that, so they picked some unexpected flower girls to be a part of their ceremony. In fact, they weren't girls at all: They were the couple's grandmothers, Joyce Benedict and Drue Fitzgerald. Dressed in beautiful matching gowns, these two did a better job than any flower girls we can think of -- maybe all those extra years gave them the edge? See more of the adorable story below.
