It's said that in the 15th century, when people didn't bathe much, brides carried bouquets to mask the smell of body odor. While brides are cleaner today, the tradition has lasted unchanged.
However one Australian bride has found an amazing way to improve on it - instead of using a floral bouquet, she got one made from doughnuts.
23-year-old Paige Kirk of Sydney surprised her bridesmaids with the news that they'd be carrying pastries down the aisle. She captured their reaction on video.
Paige explained to the BBC, "We wanted the wedding to be a bit different and really reflect who we are as a couple."
As for how she resisted the temptation to take a bite out of her bouquet, Paige said, "We had plenty of goodies beforehand so we were too full too eat them."
Not surprisingly, the guests at the nuptials loved the unique touch.
