Wedding Donut Ideas

Wedding Donut Ideas - Raleigh, NC.

Would you rather eat donuts than cake at your reception? Since 2016, it seems more and more couples agree. This sweet alternative to traditional cake has gained a lot of traction and lends itself to infinite tasty possibilities. From towers to flowers, there’s a way to make donuts a part of your celebration.

Flavor is key. Because any good donut shop offers assorted flavors (and who doesn’t love choices) you can display your favorites on a small cake stand with an added floral touch. How delicious does that dripped icing look?


Donuts can be elegant, too! Grab a pretty pastel cake stand, stack some sprinkle donuts in your wedding colors and add small toppers to tie in your wedding style.


Instead of a tiered wedding cake, create a tiered donut stand. A natural wooden stand plays host to an array of flavors that entice guests to pick the donut (or two!) of their choice.


For a more classic look on the donut tower, a white cake stand is the perfect way to present glazed, powdered, coconut and chocolate-covered donuts on your dessert table. Just like any great wedding cake, small white flowers embellish each tier.


For those craving a wedding cake alternative, a donut is a great choice. These crowd-pleasers will be the talk of your reception and will make for great photo ops, too. Do-nut think for one second you and your guests won’t love them.
