Who Needs Flowers When You Can Carry Doughnuts Down the Aisle?

We’re filing this one under “wedding trends we can seriously get behind." Enter: doughnut bouquets.

We’re filing this one under “wedding trends we can seriously get behind”: Because, come on. Doughnut bouquets!

(It’s kind of like the doughnut wall trend crossed with the croissant corsage craze, only maybe better? Discuss.)

Paige Kirk, a 23-year-old bride from Sydney, Australia, may have sparked a new fad at her wedding earlier this month when she surprised her bridesmaids by swapping out their flower bouquets for something a little tastier – if, some might argue, a little less tasteful. (But some would be wrong!) She gave them clusters of doughnuts — in decorated shades of wedding white, naturally — to carry down the aisle.

Kirk told the BBC that she and her fiance, Steven, opted for the unusual bouquets to bring a “different, fun and light-hearted" vibe to their special day, adding that everyone from the guests to the workers at the wedding venue thought they were “hilarious.”

Certainly, they’ve been a hit on social media. The company that donated the bouquets, Sydney-based Dessert Boxes, posted video and photos of Kirk and her doughnut-toting wedding party, on its Instagram page, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive.

“I need to redo my wedding so we can have these,” wrote one would-be doughnut-bouquet carrying bride.

Other commenters called the bouquets “really ideal,” “so perfect,” “the dream” and “the kind of bouquet I want.” Exclamations of “hahahah” and “omg” were in no short supply.

There were, however, commenters who noted a drawback or two.

“they wouldn't have made it through the morning let alone down the aisle and to photos!” wrote one self-aware realist.

“definitely no photos … My dress probably wouldn't have zipped …” responded another.

Yet another pointed out that she would have difficulty throwing such a yummy-looking bouquet into the crowd.

All fair points.

Kirk’s bridesmaids, however, managed to restrain themselves – not only down during the ceremony but after as well.

"We had plenty of goodies beforehand so we were too full too eat them," she told the BBC.
