Best. Bouquet. Ever!

When it comes to weddings, the bouquets that the bride and bridesmaids carry down the aisle are sometimes an overlooked detail.

It’s not to say they’re not important, 'cos they are — they make appearances in the official photos, and the bride’s bouquet toss during the reception, when Queen Bey’s “Single Ladies” finally gets a play, is obviously a ~key part~ of the celebration.

But rarely do guests walk away from a wedding thinking, “Wow, that bouquet was amazing and I’m totally going to remember it.”

Until now.

Paige Kirk, a 23-year-old bride from Sydney, surprised her bridesmaids with doughnut bouquets when she got married in Rydal over the weekend.

The bridesmaids thought they’d be walking down the aisle with regular bouquets, which were still super pretty, but were they better than doughnut bouquets?

There weren’t only doughnuts in the bouquets, which had been supplied by Dessert Boxes. They also included pastries that had been fashioned to look like flowers.

“We wanted the wedding to be a bit different and really reflect who we are as a couple,” Paige told the BBC. She said the guests “loved them.”

Perhaps the most surprising part of this story is that the bridal party didn’t eat the bouquets.

“We had plenty of goodies beforehand so we were too full to eat them,” Paige said.

No word on whether one of these doughnut bouquets was tossed during the bouquet throw. If it was, and doughnuts went a-flyin’, we would not complain.

And if you’re not a doughnut kinda gal, pretty much anything you love can be fashioned into a bouquet if you’re creative enough. Harry Potter-inspired bouquet, anyone?
