    Yeah, I think the donut wall is overrated. I also think the naked cake is overrated. Who wants a cake with no frosting?

    As for underrated, I think the dessert table/bar is underrated as an alternative to traditional wedding cake. I think even people who don't care for wedding cake can find a dessert they like in this setup.

    Donut walls are overrated, to me it's just an eye sore. I'd rather have a whole snack bar with various snacks including 1 candy jar of assorted donut holes.

    I love the idea of a coffee bar! Donut walls are fun, only been to one wedding with one. We are having a naked cake because I鈥檓 not a huge fan of buttercream (too sweet) and fondant is gross. But to make up for lack of frosting it will have chocolate ganache dripping down from the top!

    the trend im over is the over abundance of signs.

    Overrated. While I love a good donut, I don't understand the wedding doughnut phenomenon.

    I think the donut wall trend is "overrated" because we all love donuts so they give the people what they want! lol. Different types of snack/desserts are underrated in weddings like a cookies/milk bar, popcorn bar...or correct me if I'm wrong as I haven't been to a wedding in years.
