Happy National Donut Day!

We honor our favorite non-holiday with a look at three local, delicious ways to serve donuts at your wedding.

Sorry cupcakes, but there’s a new sweet in town: the current darling of wedding desserts is the donut. Whether served as an alternative to traditional wedding cake or offered as a scrumptious sidekick, there’s a whole lot to love about fried rounds of dough. Below, check out a few of our favorite ways to serve donuts at your shindig—offer up classic flavors such as powdered sugar and glazed, or get creative with inventive, custom flavors.

Create a Build-Your-Own Donut Bar

At their wedding last summer at Montage Deer Valley, Meagan Foulger and August Simmons created a build-your-own donut bar with a variety of toppings including icings and sprinkles. See more of this sunny celebration in the upcoming Summer/Fall 2017 issue of our magazine!

Request Custom, Fancy Flavors

Work with a local baker like The Big O Doughnuts (their delicious donuts are vegan!) to create custom flavors or fancy versions of your favorite donut. Serve them by the platter on your dessert buffet or package them in small bags stamped with your wedding logo as late-night takeaways.

Hire a Donut Food Truck 

Art City Donuts, based in Springville—the town also known as “Art City”—has taken its “hot, fresh, and mini” treats to a yummy new level with gourmet flavors like coconut cream, s’mores, and blueberry crumble. Hire their cheery yellow food truck to roll up to your event and dish out fried treats to your guests.
