Bride has doughnut bouquets for her wedding day

Her sweet alternative to flowers.

Choosing the perfect flowers for your wedding bouquet can involve a lot of time and thought. What do the flowers symbolise? Are you wanting the overall look to be formal or informal? Would a large bouquet dwarf you? What's in season? One colour or many?

One bride took a lot of these considerations out of the mix by selecting doughnuts for her wedding bouquet. Yes, you read that right - doughnuts.

As reported in the Huffington Post, blushing bride Paige Kirk from Sydney, Australia, chose to walk down the aisle with a bouquet created by Australian pastry shop, Dessert Boxes.

She also had them made for her bridesmaids, and the pastry shop posted a clip of Kirk surprising them with the bouquets:

“Okay, guys, I have a bit of a surprise for you,” Kirk told her bridesmaids as they posed for photos with traditional flower bouquets. “We’re not walking down with these, we’re walking down with doughnuts!”

Kirk told the BBC that she and her fiancé, Steven, were looking for a way to bring their [personalities into the wedding]( ceremony.

“We wanted the wedding to be a bit different and really reflect who we are as a couple."

They wanted to do something “different, fun and lighthearted.”

Apparently they didn't eat the doughnuts afterwards. Well, they were probably past their best by then anyway.
