Each year, IHOP celebrates National Pancake Day by offering guests a free short stack of mouthwatering buttermilk pancakes in exchange for an optional donation to charities (I'll be hitting up the nearest IHOP ASAP!). We're getting in the spirit of this delicious holiday with creative ways to incorporate pancakes into your wedding day!
