Ah, wedding toppers. The timeless piece of wedding adornment that represents the bride, groom, and their unique relationship. Even though the practice of topping cakes with these pieces of decoration is traditional, the toppers themselves do not have to be. You have endless options, starting with the classic smiling bride and groom to all sorts of unconventional manifestations. Look below for wedding topper ideas from all across the spectrum.
If you want a wedding topper that is blissfully romantic, stick with the classic options. Even when sticking with the traditional route, you still have a variety of choices. Be sure to customize the bride and groom figurines to fit you and your groom — matching your hair color, hair style, heights, and attire.
For instance, select a wedding topper with the bride and groom staring longingly into each others’ eyes. Increase interest by having the figurines hold something meaningful, such as the ampersand symbol in the above picture.
Another way to give tradition a twist is to have the classic figurines kissing, rather than just holding hands or hugging. While the above topper incorporates a bouquet of flowers and a balloon, customize yours. Have the figurines hold something of importance or meaning to you and your groom behind their backs.
You can still utilize the classic bride and groom figurines while humorously recognizing their traditional qualities with ironically classic wedding toppers. These toppers incorporate the classically dressed groom and bride but position them in a funny fashion.
For instance, the figurines could lovingly rest a hand on their spouses’ rump. From the front, your wedding topper will look classically beautiful but from the back, you can represent the playful side of your relationship. This type of topper will appease your parents while giving your friends a good chuckle.
Even though uniting together as one is incredibly romantic, married life is not always roses and butterflies. Marriage is beautiful but not without its struggles as two people with different interests try to fuse their lives together. A humorous wedding topper such as this one realistically recognizes these inevitable struggles in a light-hearted way.
Less Than Classic
If you are willing to step away from the marital figurines, you have endless wedding topper options at your fingertips. To keep this rebellion from tradition under control, place words on top of your cake for a classy topper.
The Mr. and Mrs. cake topper is simple, yet effective. You can add your personalized surname if you desire. But if you stick with the generic option, you will be able to sift through various online options until you find one that perfectly complements your personality and wedding scheme.
While the Mr. and Mrs. topper is always a winner, you can stray even further from tradition with other wordy wedding toppers. Select any word or phrase and place it in a aesthetically pleasing font. Choose ones which carry particular significance to you and your loved one, maybe ones that you repeated to each other throughout your relationship.
If you could care less about tradition, expectations, and norms, you enter a whole new world of cake toppers. Unconventional options are generally less serious and incorporate unusual elements. You can look not just at wedding toppers, but also at more general cake toppers until you find the perfect option for your wedding.
In order to maintain the marital vibe in an unexpected fashion, use animals! They can serve as substitute representations of you and your spouse. Adorn them in complete wedding attire or with just a veil or bowtie. While the above uses giraffes, you can select any animal you desire, from penguins to owls to deer.
If you are comfortable with straying from the wedding toppers, select any decoration that complements your wedding schemes and themes. Just consider the weight of these toppers as you do not want your unconventional topper to destroy your beautiful cake.
Many of these cake toppers you can make yourself, saving money and ensuring that they perfectly reflect you and your spouse. But even if you plan on buying this piece of wedding decoration, remember to stick to your identity and purchase one that symbolizes your uniquely perfect relationship.
