It’s never too late to be a flower girl – not even when you are 90!

The bride who is a fitness trainer at a senior living building in Minnesota, struck up a friendship with Elise Trapp, 96, Irene McGuire, 95, Lorraine Quinn, 94, Elaine Orgen, 96 while running exercise classes. She said that she has a special relationship with all four ladies and couldn’t picture having anyone else as part of her special day.

Irene told WMC Action News:

We haven’t heard they’ve had flower girls this age before.”

Elise joked:

It’s one of the prerequisites for the job. To be the flower girl, you should be 90 – at least.”
