Fear not if this post caught you by surprise, this day isn’t hard to celebrate, that’s for sure. We’re indulging by showing off our fave donut wedding + party ideas… Duh. Looking forward to seeing some rad last minute festivities in our Insta feed…

This free printable on Sugar & Charm was super adorable for Valentine’s Day, but wouldn’t it make for a sweet thank-you or just because gift too?

Pretty and so practical! We love the idea of offering donuts as late night bites instead of traditional wedding favors. We've even had clients order customized donuts in the shape of their last initial. Any easy-to-grab treat is a hit on the dance floor near the end of the night and something that your guests will fondly remember. Thanks for sharing! -Sarah Chancey, founder and creative mentor behind Chancey Charm, www.ChanceyCharmWeddings.com

I absolutely LOVE the idea of a donut cake! aside from "naked" wedding cakes, this is my favorite new trend for weddings. I also adore the donut and coffee truck, too cute!
