Our fairytale dreams don’t end at a certain age. Regardless if you’re 20, 30, or even 80 years old – your dream wedding can still happen.
Janet Merryman is an 80-year-old soon-to-be bride who’s ready to tie the knot with his prince charming.
A Dreamy Moment
Her granddaughter, Danielle Jefferson, took her wedding dress shopping and captured the dreamy moment on video.
Danielle hypes up her grandma by encouraging and complimenting her as she tries on the dresses. She said, “There were other brides who are trying on dresses who are stopping everything they were doing to look at her and what she was doing,” and that’s how stunning Janet is as she flaunts the wedding dresses.
Janet had gone through a lot before she met her now-soon-to-be groom. She said, “I met my late husband when I was 15. 16 years ago, he took his life.” Aside from that, she also fought colon cancer and had a blood clot in her lung.
She took care of Danielle and she had been her companion for years until she moved out, and that’s when life started to feel lonely for Janet.
Little did Janet know that the man she would be spending forever with was literally right around the corner – her 60-year-old neighbor for seven years who had three kids and was married for all those years.
They Got Together
When he became single, Janet started inviting him over for lunch to have some company, and the rest was history.
Janet and her fiancé’s love continues to grow deeper each day, and Danielle is so happy for her grandma that she’s finally found someone to spend the rest of her life with.
