There will come a time for you to get married and when that time comes, there are a lot of things to take into consideration, not to mention the wedding itself. One of the most essential and extravagant parts of a wedding is the reception and the most important piece for that? The wedding cake.
The wedding cake is not just a piece of food like all the other foods present in the reception. It symbolizes a traditional part of every wedding celebrated in history. It is a known tradition where the bride or the groom cuts the first slice of the cake and offers each other a bite.
Clearly, you would want to plan that design of your cake months before the big day, from the flavor, to the type and the frosting, the décor of the entire cake and the topper that can make or break your wedding cake. In most cases, having a wedding cake topper is not really needed and your wedding will not be ruined without them. However, having one can accentuate your wedding cake and will allow you and your better half to express yourselves and your personalities. It can make a big difference to the focal point of the reception.
All throughout the years, wedding cake toppers are the little bride and groom figurines–the bride in a wedding dress matched with a veil and a bouquet of flowers and the groom in his formal attire or tuxedo–placed on top of a wedding cake. They represent devotion and is the only part of the cake that can be kept through the years, a sort of remembrance from that magical day, apart from the photographs and videos captured on the big day of course.
Okay, with that out of the way, how can you exactly choose the perfect topper for your big day? How can you present your love story creatively through a topper?
Today, there are countless designs you can choose from apart from the traditional bride and groom figures. The selection ranges from funny, cute, phrases, etc. If ever you choose to have a wedding cake topper, then select the one that is appropriate for the theme of your wedding, reception and your personalities. For instance, if your wedding is more on the formal side then it is best if you consider sticking with the traditional bride and groom toppers or if you’d rather stay away from the traditional toppers and go for a more modern design, go for the next formal design by using your initials as your cake topper. Such wedding cake toppers are also the best choice if you and your partner are having a difficult time agreeing on which topper to use.
If you are one of the couples that would like to have a formal wedding but would want to have a relaxed reception, then you can select a unique and a not so formal wedding cake topper. You can also go for something that reflects your common hobbies or interests, or even favorite characters in a movie. On the other hand, if you have a certain theme for your wedding and reception such as something from a movie, then it is best if you look for toppers that support this theme.
In other words, make sure that your cake toppers fit the overall design of the cake and your reception. Have fun looking for the perfect one-of-a-kind wedding cake topper for your special day.
