Cake toppers have been traditionally placed on the wedding cake for all to see. It not only symbolizes the wedding couple, but also serves to decorate the wedding cake.
Wedding cake toppers in the recent years are available in a wide array of designs, colours, and styles for couples to select what they feel symbolizes who they are.
How then, should you select your cake topper?
Avoid plastic cake toppers.
Your wedding cake will be painstakingly baked and decorated by your confectioner. The last thing you would want is to top it off with a cheap looking plastic cake topper.
Wedding cake toppers should be as exceptional as your wedding cake. Even if you are on a tight budget, there are many other materials available that you can possible consider. These may cost a little bit more but it would be well worth the little extra when you see how well it will complement your cake.
Express your creativity
If you can personalize both the cake and the cake topper, that would be exceptional. If you do not like having your names written all over, why not consider one that is non-traditional? If you both like golf, perhaps a golfing couple can represent you both? If you like little dogs, perhaps one of a couple walking a dog will be perfect? Let your creative juices flow and share them with your confectioner. It will help him or her create your cake and recommend a suitable cake topper.
Use a hand-me-down
No we are not asking you to purchase a second-hand cake topper from a thrift shop. An idea that we particularly like is if your parents still keep their cake topper, it can be particularly meaningful to use it on your cake.
Remember, wedding cake toppers are not just sheer embellishments but one that represents the personality of the couple and the love they share.
