Although the first thing that springs to mind for most people when
they think about
a wedding cake topper is the traditional representation of the bride
and groom standing side-by-side, cake toppers are no longer relegated
to a cheesy plastic bauble. The choice and variety available in
cake toppers is simply fantastic and if you have a skilled cake
designer – he or she can certainly come up with something
far more interesting than the simple bride and groom.
Today cake toppers are so beautifully worked that many of them
can easily look at home as a showpiece for your living room. They
can be made from a variety of fine materials including crystal,
porcelain, glass and jade. They can be anything from entwined
hearts to doves to flowers or even framed pictures of the bride
and groom. The list of what constitutes a cake topper is endless.
If your wedding is following a certain theme then you can choose
a cake topper to match your theme. For instance a medieval wedding
can have a knight and lady cake topper while a beach wedding can
have seashells. If the wedding is in winter then crystals can
be used to create snowflakes, icicles or other appropriate themes.
Cake toppers give you a chance to have some fun. If you really
want a traditional tiered wedding cake you can always throw in
a bit of whimsy with your choice of cake topper. There is no reason
why you should stick with the tried and true if that is not what
you are about. Your wedding cake should be as special and unique
to you as the rest of the wedding reception and a great way to
do that is by getting yourself a great topper for your cake.
