Wedding Cake Toppers: A Guide

Aug 17, 2007
Long long time ago, there was a princess. Or, to be exact, a baker's daughter who was going to be married, but wanted to see the symbol of her love and a perfect piece of art that would add to the wedding and make all other baker's daughters green-eyed.

The father thought and though and thought and finally came up with the idea. He made up to small figurines of a bride and groom and put them on the top of a wedding cake. Daughter was furious, but everyone else liked the idea. And that's how these special cake toppers for weddings were invented.

Nobody can really tell if it is a fiction or a story (which indicates that it is fiction, after all), but the fact is that the wedding cake toppers have been one of traditional symbols of married couples. The fact they were placed above the cake let everyone to see how the bride and groom look like (or want to look like, if you remember Shrek, you know what I'm talking about) and remind everyone that these two people are the most important that day.

Wedding cake toppers can be made in a wide variety of designs and styles - the couples are now able to choose the topper they think would fit the best in their vision of their future marriage.

While wedding cake toppers might be an excellent idea, you can still spoil it by not following the tips below:

1. Do not buy wedding cake toppers made of plastics, especially the cheap ones.

The point is that the wedding cake topper simply has to be as exceptional as you can get, maybe even more than your wedding cake. That's why the mass-produced toppers just won't do the trick. Handmade ones usually cost more than you think is reasonable, but they will change your wedding cake into something wonderful that will make your wedding a truly wonderful event.

2. Be creative.

It is a good idea to prepare the wedding along with the wedding cake and cake toppers as all personalized, not mass-produced items. The point is that this will add a lot to the romance and glamour imbued in the wedding itself.

Do not feel constrained with all the traditional ideas of how the cake toppers should look like. There are many new designs available and don't forget that you might also have your own ideas. Don't be afraid, just use them!

3. Parentsī wedding cake topper

Here's something for those who want to creative, but lack the budget: use your parents cake topper... of course if only it is still available. As toppers are often stored as souvenirs, there is a good chance that at least one of them is still somewhere near.

Keep in mind that wedding cake toppers are not just another addon to a cake, but a real emblem representing the love between husband and wife.
