Cotton candy: it's having a moment, and we don't mean at the county fair.

If you're attending a wedding in 2019, you may just see the sweet treat featured not only as a dessert, but in bouquets and boutonnieres as well.

Alison Andersen, owner of Lollipuff Gourmet Cotton Candy in Provo, Utah, told "GMA" the company has been catering weddings for the last four years and in the last few has seen "a very big increase."

"Cotton candy is the new cupcake," Andersen said. The company offers it in 30 flavors, including passion fruit, coconut, mango chili, lime ricky and lavender.

Sara Goodwin used the company for her wedding in Salt lake City. "It made for some adorable, colorful, and unique photos of our wedding that we will cherish forever," she told "GMA."

Besides serving it as a sweet treat, it can be used in more creative ways, Andersen said.

"Cotton candy can be used as bouquets for the bride and the bridesmaids. It can also be used to garnish desserts or drinks."

Lillian told "GMA" she thinks the flower crown has trend potential. "It breaks tradition and I think it would appeal to brides looking to do something a little outside of the box," she said.

Cassie Sweet used cotton candy as a bridal bouquets in her wedding.

"I love cotton candy so much that I ordered a cotton candy machine for our wedding guests to be able to have them as treats during our reception," Sweet told "GMA." "I quickly realized how cute they were and decided I wanted to turn them into bouquets."
