Happy National Donut Day! Just a few years ago, donuts wouldn’t be considered wedding related in the slightest. Now, however, they are a popular treat at receptions – whether for the main dessert, favors, or for a fun late-night snack. Though largely viewed as a simple confection, there are a variety of ways donuts can be offered and displayed at a wedding. Gourmet flavors can add a luxurious touch, while a classic glazed version provides a level of comfort and nostalgia. Simple plates and tiered stands can showcase donuts among the other desserts provided to your guests, or a trendy wall with donuts hanging on pegs will make for both a delicious snack and a great Instagram post for your attendees.
Even if you don’t think donuts are the right fit for your big day – perhaps you’re simply a traditionalist who loves cake – there are still plenty of ways to include the sweet treats in your celebration. They are a perfect fit for your morning-after brunch, or even pre-wedding events such as a bridal shower or engagement party.
Get inspiration from the photos below, which showcase donuts from real weddings. Click each picture to see the rest of the celebration, and get more ideas for sweets from our cakes and desserts gallery.
