SAGINAW TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- Many brides-to-be pick best friends to serve as their maids or matrons of honor.
That's the case for 26-year-old Erica Schultz of Saginaw Township.
But her best buddy isn't a high school or college pal.
It's her 92-year-old grandmother.
Angelene Schultz will stand beside her granddaughter when she marries Mark James on Oct. 18 in Bay City.
And the woman known as Busha or Granny-Mae has been no bystander in the process.
She helped choose the wedding gown and will wear her own red dress to the ceremony.
She tells The Saginaw News it's a great honor for her to be in the wedding party even if she does "raise some eyebrows."
