Sylvia Martin, a 93-year-old went shopping for her wedding dress at Birdsnest, a shop in New South Wales, where she tried on four red options. And to help her pick the right one, Birdsnet posted the outfits on
its Facebook page and asked their followers to help her choose.

Eventually, she chose the lacy Sacha Drake Cipolla Drake dress, which retails at $349 (£200).
Sylvia is getting married to her friend Frank, who lives in her retirement village.
Frank has apparently asked her many times.
‘Sylvia has always refused, thinking that to take a new surname would
be disrespectful to her deceased husband,’ Birdsnest’s Facebook post
says.

‘A year ago, Sylvia took ill and moved to Canberra to be near her
family, and Frank thought all hope was lost. When Sylvia recovered, she
found Frank, who was living in Adelaide, and convinced him to move to
Canberra to be with her.
‘Frank arrived a couple of months ago and again asked Sylvia to marry
him. Sylvia had learned that you can keep your own surname when you
marry, and so said yes.’
