New Ideas for Wedding Cake Toppers & Decorations
Wedding cakes today are more elaborate than ever before. The beauty and intricate details cause many couples to skip using a cake topper so they do not detract from the details of their wedding cake. However, a cake topper can add a touch of fun to your delectable dessert. Choosing the wedding cake topper that is right for you is essential to make your wedding cake memorable.
Using Initials as Cake Toppers
It is a growing trend for couples to put their initials as their cake topper. Silver or gold wedding cake initials are quite popular, and many are embellished with diamonds or similarly shining gems that elaborate the beauty of the wedding cake. Couples may even wind ribbon around their cake topper in one of their wedding colours to add an elegant touch. They may choose to put the first letter of their last name on top, or the first letter of their first names. No matter what their choice, couples can create a wonderful wedding cake with the addition of an initial cake topper.
Traditional Cake Toppers
Some couples choose to use a traditional bride and groom cake topper which brings a touch of class to the wedding. Today, wedding shops have a large variety of sculpted figurines in a number of poses. Some are humorous and some are serious. If you are a military couple, you can find figurines in uniform. If you and your new spouse have a common hobby, you may find a bride and groom cake topper showing figures that look like you doing that hobby.
One possible cake topper uses figurines that do not look like the bride and groom but still convey a message of love. Some possibilities include animal cake topper figurines such as bears or birds. These figurines may have a black top hat and wedding veil indicating the bride and groom, or bird wedding cake figurines in springtime can symbolise rebirth and renewal that a new marriage brings into the lives of the couple and their families.
Elegant Cake Toppers
Perhaps you choose a romantic ambiance for your big day and want the cake topper to reflect that atmosphere. Many couples choose a slender heart-shaped topper to complement their wedding decorations. A personalised cake topper such as this one from Pink Frosting can highlight your cake design without detracting from it. Plus, a clear heart design will go with any decorations you decide to have at the cake table.
Unusual Cake Toppers
Quirky couples may find they want a cake topper that gets everyone's attention and is the talk of the town for years to come. A wedding around Halloween may include skeleton figures atop the cake that would create a spooky atmosphere, but also indicate the adventurous side of the couple. Perhaps a joke between the couple may include one of them dragging the other to the altar, so they choose a cake topper showing the joke in action. Using humorous or novelty wedding cake toppers can be a fun addition to you wedding and stand out from the crowd. Guests will laugh and you will smile that they enjoy your choice of cake topper so much. Check out the list – with photos – from YumSugar of 14 tackly but funny wedding cake toppers.
