Manhattan bride Jamie Jacobs was having trouble narrowing down her list of potential bridesmaids, so she decided to simplify the process by having just one attendant: her 95-year-old grandma.

In a New York Times "Vows" video, spunky nonagenarian Dorothy Shapiro recounts her experience as her granddaughter's matron of honor.

"That was one of the biggest honors that a grandmother could have -- that she chose me, an old lady!" she said.

Shapiro was worried that she wouldn't be able to make it down the aisle on the big day, but she pulled it off.

"I did it like a real trouper," she said.
