When planning a wedding, it seems that no detail is left unconsidered. However, there is one item that is often overlooked – the cake topper. While some couples may think that there is simply one option – a miniature bride and groom – you can get creative when choosing an item to sit atop your main confection.
Those who want a simple design can opt for a heart-shaped cake topper. This tiny wedding decoration is sweet and charming without appearing kitschy or saccharine. You can also use items shaped like letters of the alphabet – select two toppers (the first letter of your name and the first letter of your partner's name) for a look that's romantic yet modern.
Other couples, however, may want a cake topper that is a bit more spirited. In this case, pairs are only limited by their own creativity. Instead of a bride and groom standing side by side, look for a piece that depicts the couple engaging in a fun activity, such as playing a sport or driving in a car.
You can also choose a cake topper that matches your wedding's motif. Those getting married on a beach may want a piece that contains seashells, while couples getting married in an outdoor ceremony in the fall may prefer an autumnal-themed topper.
