Sometimes planning a wedding is like starting a big project. You need to take care of everything and every detail from reception to ceremony. The to-do lists would be quite long. Usually, the most important aspects include selecting wedding venue and flowers, songs, DJ, and Photographer, wedding dress and bridal party attire, the food and cake, wedding invitations and favors…
But do you ever notice which is at the end of the to-do list? In most cases, it is the wedding cake topper, which seems not very important however it can add a special touch to every wedding.
Many couples don’t realize the importance of wedding toppers. Now let me explain why cake toppers are so significant. You will take lots of photos in your wedding. They will be a great memory several years after the ceremony. Just imagine a little bit, 20 years after your ceremony, one day you and your man are enjoying those photos reviewing the perfect day of your life, suddenly you find out the wedding topper is so tacky to be the background of your photos. Would it be a great regret? Now do you still think that wedding toppers are insignificant? After you understand the importance, how to choose the right toppers?
Nowadays newlyweds are no longer bounded by the customs and traditions; they needn’t suffer from outdated small, plastic figurines to adorn the top of their cakes. Brides and grooms have more choices to get the right toppers.
Firstly pay attention to the size of the cake, particularly the top tier or wherever you plan on displaying the topper. You don’t want to encounter the embarassinng thing that the topper doesn’t fit your cake well, right?
Take a look at those existing products in the market, got a general idea about your topper then think over the style you love. Do you have some special hobbies or unique interests you could involve into your wedding? For example, if you are a huge hockey fan, why not have the figurines wearing the jersey of your favorite team? Or, maybe you love your pets very much, why not incorporate them via the form of cake toppers?
If you are planning a themed wedding which will take place at a certain location, you might want to have a topper to match. For the beach wedding, having sand-feelinng and shell topper would be a great idea. For the winter wedding, you might need a cake topper to reflect this season’s features such as snowflakes or snowman.
Not only the style of toppers you should pay attention to but also you should know the material.
No matter what kind of wedding cake topper you ultimately decide on, keep in mind that you must match it to the whole wedding and cake. It would be the perfect finishing touch of your big day.
