Cake toppers are one of the more fun ways to customize your wedding to let your personality shine through. They can be as original as you want, ranging from the traditional couple to a monogram cake topper. However, a lot of people are looking for something a little more creative. Why not let your inner geek shine through? Creative cake toppers are becoming more and more popular in today's society, so there are a lot out there to choose from. You can even look into things to make your own cake topper that is sure to be a conversation piece.
One thing that can be a lot more fun and unique are LEGOS. Legos are easily customizable and fun to use, so what better to crown your cake with? You and your partner can spend a night building your cake topper to look exactly as you'd like it to look. You can build hearts and flowers or even castles and cool looking cars. Attach a pair of your favorite lego figurines to represent you and your partner for the perfect touch! Plus, afterwards, it's a pretty fun thing to keep on display to showcase your love for years to come.
Another idea to bring out your geeky side is to use action figures from your favorite show to represent you and your partner! One of the more popular geeky couples is Han Solo and Princess Leia from Star Wars. An action figure of each on top of the cake is a sure way to say your love will last for eternity (as if it's frozen in carbonite.)
On the topic of action figures, surely everyone has read a comic book one time or another in their life. Some of the more popular super heroes are easily recognized by people of all ages. Super heroes, such as Superman, Batman, and Spiderman, are steadily gaining popularity in pop culture today! Use it to your advantage! Go out and get figurines of your favorite comic couple. Some to choose from are Superman and Lois Lane, Spiderman and Mary Jane Watson, and even Jean Grey and Scott Summers (also known as Phoenix and Cyclops from X-Men.) They are the perfect examples of romance that can survive any tough circumstances!
You don't even need to use figurines or people, for that matter, on top of the cake. Sometimes just using some thing that's easily recognized will work just as well! Why not have you and your partner pick out your favorite video game consoles and put models of the controllers on top of the cake with your names? You can even pick a controller from your favorite console when you were growing up. Pairing a classic Nintendo '64 controller with a remote for an Xbox may just suit you and your partner perfectly!
Now for some of the most classic video game couples! Pacman and Mrs. Pacman are one of the most recognized. These two lovable characters are a great way to show you love for video games, and for each other as well! Another couple which would be a good idea to put on a wedding cake is Mario and Princess Peach! Both of these couples are sure to make everyone smile when they see them. Plus, little figurines of these couples are sure to add character to any wedding cake!
Wedding cake toppers can be as unique as you want them to be. They can be ordered, commissioned, or even hand made. What's important is that you let your personality shine through no matter what. Be as creative as you want. This is your special day, so make sure you enjoy it to the fullest and make it something no one will be able to forget.
