It is a dying art, but there are still a good few who choose to have a nice topper to help give their wedding cake more personality and style. There are many different styles to choose from, and they aren’t too large an expense so if you have a slightly bigger budget you can afford to get exactly what you want. They can be anything from a small heart with your initials inscribed into it or two large figures of a bride and groom. Here we take a look at some of the more common styles and discuss ideas you could use or work from.
Traditional means many things. It means family, it means romance and it also means cultural respect. One of the most known toppers is bride and groom figures, which has been in wedding ceremonies for many years. They can be generic, or if you wanted you could have the custom made to look like the real bride and groom. Other traditional motifs for wedding toppers include hearts, doves, horse shoes and large letters. One idea you may not have thought of doing is using animals that pair for life as your topper. These animals include the likes of swans, wolves, lovebirds and even certain breeds of fish.
As of late more and more couples are trying to get more creative when it comes to decoration the top of their cake. Generally speaking you can have whatever you want, or you may have seen as design you like and you want it to be recreated. The style of the topper will be subject to the style of the cake itself. If you have a traditional cake you don’t want to spoil it with an odd shaped topper in a random bold colour. The most typical choices for modern toppers mainly revolve around shapes, lines, swirls and an array of subtle tones. One thing you could try is have an outline of a couple using all but one line. This can either be done with wire or you could have it custom cut.
More and more people are striving to make their wedding unique to them, and unique as a whole. With the likes of themed weddings finding a suitable topper shouldn’t be much of a problem. Themes range from hobbies such as boating, skiing and gardening to family pets and general interests such as horror movies, retro games and works of art. With shabby chic and vintage style being a very popular theme this year why not have a cute bird theme or something nature related.
