Bride Surprises 100-Year-Old Great-Grandmother With Wedding Dress After She Couldn’t Attend Wedding

Exclusive to Happily

A 100-year-old great-grandmother who couldn’t attend her great-granddaughter’s wedding due to ill health was surprised by the bride in her wedding dress at her care home.


Due to her condition, Urbana Lambert, from Windham, Connecticut, couldn’t attend her great-granddaughter Emily’s big day on June 3, leaving Emily a little empty and wanting to share the huge life moment with her.

A few weeks later, Urbana’s family was given the news that she was fighting pneumonia, so Emily grabbed her wedding dress and headed to her great-grandmother’s care home along with her parents.

On June 27, with her great grandma seated in her room, Emily, 31, then entered wearing her dress, which immediately brought a smile to Urbana’s face.

The gesture brightened up Urbana’s roommate’s day, too, Emily said, and she later shared a video of the surprise on social media with viewers commenting how lovely the moment was for Urbana, who has since turned 101.

Emily said: “My parents said they were on their way, so I grabbed my dress and we hurried up and went to the nursing home.

“My parents walked in, I jumped into her bathroom to change, and then came out to surprise her.

“Seeing my great grandma’s reaction was really special – she was speechless.

“It was also really fun to brighten up her roommate’s day, too, and she also loved the surprise.


“It was great feeling to bring a little bit of fun to their day.

“It’s not very common for someone my age to still have a great grandparent in their life, and I knew I wanted to share this huge moment in my life with her.

“The memory of surprising her, and a photo with her and myself in my wedding dress, will forever be something I cherish.”
