Brides are embracing a new trend to replace flowers with big, puffy candy floss in their wedding bouquets. Pictures of the edible bouquets are taking social media sites by storm and they are totally inspiring us to mix up the bouquet tradition.
Wedding agency Million Miles Wedding shared joyful moments of a bride and her bridesmaid holding candy floss bouquets.
"Some brides are ditching the traditional flower bouquet for something different...and edible. Cotton candy bouquets are fun and whimsical," stated the post.
Faheema Chaudhury, the founder of accessories brand Unicorn Crafts, also picked up the trend and used dreamy pink cotton candy bouquet at her wedding.
She wrote to Delish, "I loooooove cotton candy and knew I had to make a cotton candy bouquet for my wedding." For what it's worth, Faheema's Instagram biography reads "Lover of sugar," so this checks out.
The affordable bouquet can also be easily customised to any hue according to the wedding theme.
Chris Wood, head Florist at Waitrose, told The Telegraph: "Over the past few years there has been a definite move away from prim and proper posies, with brides opting for looser and more asymmetric arrangements.
"Brides are looking for seasonal arrangements and the trend lends itself to locally sourced products."
Pictures of beautiful brides and bridemaids holding cotton candy bouquets are trending on Instagram and favoured by a lot of brides-to-be.
'Beevaudrin' said she used the edible bouquet in her wedding toast nine years ago and it looked amazing.
She even gave a tip of sticking the cotton candy bouquet to the champagne glass.
"When the champagne hits it while you sip, it obviously dissolves immediately and then turns your champagne the beautiful colour of the candy. It was fun," she wrote.
But the idea of replacing traditional flower bouquets with edible bouquets is not to everyone's tastes.
'kjbb1' said holding a cotton candy as bouquet is 'weird', 'tacky' and 'dated in pictures in just a few years'.
"Cotton candy saves money, sure but flowers are naturally gorgerous!" she added.
