Cake Toppers to Reflect Your Personality!
So maybe you’re planning a patriotic, rustic, sports-oriented, western and Celtic-themed, mixed-race, same-sex wedding and you feel like none of the available wedding cake toppers really capture the “real you”. Or maybe yours is less complicated, but it’s still a challenge to find your wedding cake’s pièce-de-résistance. You may even feel like your vision of a “perfect wedding” is in jeopardy. With so much to do and so little time, are you going to have to settle for something less than you deserve or, worse yet, nothing at all?
With so many other items on your wedding supplies checklist, the task of getting through it all seems daunting and endless. Flowers, formal attire, meal and beverage selections, party favors, the cake itself, and decorations are just the tip of the iceberg. They say “the devil is in the details” and there is no better example of this than planning a wedding reception.
The best way to get through this seemingly endless list of items is to tackle them one at a time and check them off for good. This guide deals specifically with, and you may have guessed from the title, wedding cake toppers. Surprisingly (or maybe not), this is one area of great stress for many couples because let’s face it, this decision’s going to be front and centre in all of those wedding cake photos until the end of time. No pressure. Seriously, no pressure.
With so many different races and ethnic backgrounds, religions, and sexual orientations in our culturally diverse nation of Canada (and the United States of America), there is no single off-the-shelf topper for your wedding cake that can reflect this amazing variety. But, have no fear. There are now many options to make that special day perfect, toppers that truly capture the happy couple’s likeness and tastes.
Custom Wedding Cake Toppers
Custom toppers allow you to personalize the features of the figurines, like hair colour and ethnicity, for that perfect “mini-me” look – but it doesn’t stop there. Are you a golf fanatic or fishing disciple? Or maybe there’s another sport or hobby that’s “your thing”. Well, you’re in luck! There are sport- and hobby-themed figurines to further add character and likeness to the happy couple. Who said wedding cake toppers can’t be fun?
You can also pair up any of these figurines and customize them to include personal details for the perfect cake topper. There are nearly limitless options to choose from, so finding that perfect figurine will be a piece of cake, or something like that. These customization options take “personalization” to the next level and will make for some awesome photos and conversations for a long, long time. This is one great way to add some fun and humour to your special day.
The Happy Couple
You can mix and match a variety of figurines to best represent the happy couple – both bride and groom. Besides customization for hair colour and ethnicity, you can also swap around the best likeness for any bride and groom, or same-sex couple. There are a variety of styles that are available for both brides and grooms, from formal attire including his and hers suits, traditional Celtic, western-themed, and a little bit of everything in between. There are many figurines available in various poses, so you can recreate almost any scene, from funny to romantic, or even a little of both. This can add a lot of character to your cake and make for some memorable stories later.
Themed Wedding Cake Toppers With Personality
Sure, there’s the traditional figurine couple exchanging vows at the alter, or sharing that first dance at the reception, but the options don’t end there. There are many incredible themes to choose from that add personality and character to any cake top. Some possibilities include romantic themes like a Cinderella-esque fairytale, couples caught in a sweet embrace, and honeymooners making their escape, just to name a few. If you’re looking for something non-traditional, there’s plenty to choose from here too. Ranging from fishing themes, checkered finish line flags, sports themes, and even some left-at-the-alter “still looking” wedding cake toppers available, there is truly something for everyone. And here, you may have thought that the term “all-inclusive” was just for vacation packages. Not so.
Maybe Figurines Aren’t For You?
No problem. Not everyone wants their likeness on their wedding cake, staring at them all night like some creepy little leprechauns plotting to steal their socks, or whatever you imagine that they’re scheming behind those beady little eyes.
There are many elegant and tasteful toppers that incorporate classic elements such as hearts, doves, or monogram letters in etched glass. They are sure to please most tastes and can complement your wedding decoration theme perfectly.
Monogrammed and Personalized Wood Veneer Toppers
There’s a certain simple, yet elegant look to a classy monogrammed topper. Whether it’s just the couple’s initials in brushed silver, or the classic “Mr & Mrs (insert last name here)” etched in frosted glass, a slick-looking monogrammed topper works beautifully with many wedding themes making for a picture-perfect day. There are many brushed metal finishes to choose from to match almost any décor.
Personalized wood veneer toppers add a certain rustic charm and subdued elegance and can be matched with beautiful, hand-crafted porcelain toppers with amazing results. You’ll be spoiled for choice with so many wonderful options available.
Cake Toppers are “Icing-on-the-Cake”
Selecting the right topper for your wedding cake doesn’t have to be a stress-inducing exercise at all. In fact, once you get into it, it can be rather fun, and you can look forward to your guests’ surprise and enjoyment with this thoughtful selection. With so many theme choices, customizable figurines, iconic images crafted from porcelain, acrylic, and wood veneer, and personalized monogrammed toppers available, there is a unique wedding cake topper to suit every couple’s tastes.
