Donuts At Weddings
When planning your wedding you will spend a lot of time, money, and effort into everything from choosing the venue to creating the invitations, to deciding on what you will use for your wedding cake. While extravagant and expensive wedding cakes were the typical tradition for the reception, forward-thinking brides have sought out alternatives that can bring a little creativity to their party and some benefit to their budget.
One of the recent popular trends for brides-to-be who are looking to choose a cake alternative is wedding donuts as the dessert for their reception finale. From donut towers to donut walls, there is no end to the creativity you can bring when you opt for donuts over cake.
What Are the Advantages of Having Donuts at Your Wedding?
Aside from the growth in trend to choosing more unique dessert options to help your wedding stand out as a memorable event, there are many other advantages to choosing donuts instead of a traditional wedding cake. Some of the primary advantages of choosing donuts are:
Donuts at a Wedding Can Be More Affordable
A traditional wedding cake is often priced per serving with add-ons for such things as fillings, decorations, cake toppers, and more. When holding a wedding with a large number of guests the cost per serving can add up quickly making wedding cakes cost prohibitive. The national average for a standard tiered wedding cake will run about $400 to $500 though larger or more intricate ones can cost $1500 or more. For brides investing in a donut wall, the primary cost will be the same price they would pay for several dozen donuts often cutting the cost by hundreds of dollars.
You Can Offer a Variety of Flavors
One of the great benefits of choosing donuts at your wedding is the amount of variety that you can offer your guests and it is as easy as picking out the flavors you want to have. You can even choose varieties to fit dietary needs such as vegan or gluten-free options. The sky’s the limit when it comes to the flavor combination of both donut and frosting allowing your to create a wedding dessert sure to please any taste.
It Can be Part of the Display
When using donuts you can create an amazing number of different displays to enhance your current decor and carry your theme throughout the reception. When utilizing a donut wall you can form the donuts into words or designs, or even create your monogram. You can also utilize the different color frosting and design on each of the donuts to create a piece of art.
Donuts Are Easier to Serve
You can still share the cake with your newly married spouse but save on all the mess and extra work that comes into serving your cake to your guests. Once you have done your photos, you can have guests come up and choose the flavor they want. You can also easily serve with decorative napkins to cut down on the cost of renting cake dishes. When it comes time to pack up, it is as simple as putting the donuts back in the boxes.
