Typically, the flower girl at a wedding is a younger relative. Say, a daughter, niece or cousin.
But one bride, Lyndsey Raby, bucked the trend and opted to give the honour to four slightly older members of her family, instead.
Inviting her groom's grandmother Joyce Raby, 70, to take part as a flower girl alongside her two grandmothers Wanda Grant, 76, Betty Brown, 72 and her 90-year-old great grandmother Kathleen Brown, Lyndsey proved that you really can't put an age on cuteness.
Dressing them in matching blue lace dresses and jackets, all four grandmothers looked absolutely thrilled to have been given the honour as they arrived at the ceremony.
They each held baskets with petals in their hands and are pictured scattering them merrily behind Lyndsey as she walked down the aisle.
Discussing how her grandmothers took to their flower girl duties, Lyndsey exclusively told Tyla they were "ecstatic," adding that it was "all they talked about for months".
"They mean so much to us so it meant the world to have them a part of our day!," she added.
And after seeing their sheer joy in adorable pictures shared by her wedding photographer Natalie Caho, people flocked to gush over the "precious" idea, while others claimed they were now considering inviting their grandmothers to take up the duty, too.
Discussing the huge amount of attention the flower girls had received, Lyndsey said that they now "feel like movie stars," as a result of it all. Awww.
"I've seen a lot of cute flower girls in my day, but these four gals take the cake," Natalie wrote on her professional page.
"Priceless. I love it," one person wrote in response, while another agreed: "Very original and totally cute...I bet they were so chuffed..."
"Okay I can't handle this. Cutest ever!," a third wrote.
When asked if she would recommend others following suit and getting their elders involved in their big day, she instantly said: "Do it!"
While photographer Natalie agreed: "If you're on the fence about having something outside the ordinary at your wedding just do! Especially if it means something as sweet as this did to you and your family".
What a lucky bride to have so many amazing women as part of her big day!
