Dazzle Your Guests with a Sensational Cake Topper
The cake topper might not be the first element that springs into mind when you’re looking for a way to jazz up your reception. It’s probably because you’ve gotten used to seeing cookie-cutter bride and groom figurines standing close to each other, dressed in traditional formal wedding attires. Guests may even be oblivious to it, expecting the same old thing from every reception.
But times have changed, and there is now a variety of unconventional cake toppers within your reach. With designs that are funny, quirky, candid, whimsical or even symbolic, you will surely be able to catch the attention of friends and relatives.
Take your pick from the:
Spoofs are one trend with modern figurine toppers. Grooms can be portrayed as couch potatoes, glued to the television with a remote control on one hand and a game console controller on the other. Shopaholic brides may get a laugh out of a topper with the groom looking at a post that reads “Still shopping.” Women in charge are depicted in a design where the bride wears the pants, literally! For technology-savvy couples, there’s a topper that shows the bride and groom holding on to their mobile phones even on the day of their wedding.
Many comical figurine toppers are a play on the reluctant groom theme, with the bride dragging her husband-to-be in a variety of hilarious poses. Another amusing option showcases the groom as a frog prince with two little green feet and a tell-tale kiss mark on his cheek. A twist on this is of a bride just about to lock lips with the frog clasped in her palm.
If you and your future spouse are sports fans, then you’ll get a kick out of toppers wherein the groom is geared up to play rugby, soccer, hockey or golf. More dynamic pieces feature the bride getting on in the action of a baseball or football match, or a ski down the winter slopes.
Want to step beyond figurines with a lifelike face and body? Go for porcelain toppers in the silhouette of a couple dancing, holding hands or kissing. You can go even more contemporary with love bird or dove designs. Or simply a sleek heart sculpture. For a signature look, consider a silver monogram topper with a brushed finish. Crystals can be embedded to lend an elegant feel.
You can also opt to carry over your wedding motif to your cake topper. If you’re planning a fairytale-like celebration, create a focal point with a large castle topper. A crystal-studded snowflake design is perfect for a winter reception, and a starfish when in a beach setting. Fit for Irish weddings are toppers in the form of Celtic knot or Claddagh ring.
Tips to help you decide:
1. For inspiration, do a rundown on the hobbies and interests you share as a couple.
2. Keep in mind the tone or ambiance you want for your wedding. The cake topper should reflect this.
3. Picture the cake topper with the decorations you’ve already picked out. Make sure they don’t clash.
4. As much as possible, decide on the cake topper together. Or at least consult with him just to be sure he’s on board with your pick. Last thing you want is for your groom to be offended because of the satirical cake topper you opted for.
And of course, don’t be afraid to step out of the box. Go with something you, your husband and your guests will all enjoy and remember.
