Look, tradition is great, but when something better comes along, switching only makes sense. That’s why if you’re getting married with a flower bouquet, well, you blew it. Because now, there’s a pizza bouquet!

Yes, it’s exactly what it sounds like! Behold the wonder:

If the Nobel committee recognized people for pizza innovation, this year’s prize would have to go to the folks at Villa Italian Kitchen, who came up with the concept. The New York City-based chain hired “food stylist” Jessie Bearden to create the pizza bouquet. The concoction has all the essentials–sourdough crust, tomato sauce, cheese, and pepperoni–all folded into floral shapes.

The only downside is that the pizza bouquet isn’t regularly available. The chain held a contest to give away pizza bouquets to a few lucky brides, and it ended on June 15th. So if you want one for your wedding, you’ll have to make your own. In the meantime, we’ll all just have to drool on our smartphone screens.

But it’s not just the brides who get to have their wedding pizza-fied. For grooms, there’s the equally delicious pizza boutonniere. It’s much smaller than the pizza bouquet, and it looks more like a garlic knot with a cherry tomato on it, but it’s still tastier than a regular boutonniere!

Since pizza is a universally beloved and perfect food will go down as the greatest human achievement, people on social media loved it. The pizza bouquet went viral, and the admirers had many good things to say.

The pizza bouquet is so delectable, some married people regretted already having their weddings.

One person came up with the perfect wedding dress to go with a pizza bouquet.

And this person wondered if the pizza bouquet has to be used for a wedding at all.

Valid point. Why should married people have all the fun?

Which is why I have come up with a related food item: Divorce Pizza. Each person only gets half, and it’s topped with toenail clippings and strychnine.
