When one hears the word "wedding cake topper," the first thought that comes to mind is probably a tiny, plastic couple standing on the top tier of a wedding cake (similar to the earlier styles designed around the 1970s era). Yet now it's almost 2011 and cake toppers have sure evolved. Nowadays if you decide to use a cake topper, it's not expected or necessary to use one of a bride and groom. In fact, personalized and monogram wedding cake toppers
are much more popular. These contemporary pieces are designed with more of a modernized style better suitable for the current day and age, and are top picks among brides and grooms everywhere.
Based on statistics, monogram cake toppers are more popular than ones personalized with the bride and groom's name and event date. Most of the monogram ones available on Little Things Favors are in the traditional, three letter monogram style: the first name initials on the left and right are slightly smaller than the last name initial in the middle. Our most popular is this Brushed Silver Curved Monogram Cake Topper. Also available in gold, the font style of the letters is fun and modern, and numbers and an ampersand are also available. This makes a great cake topper not only for weddings, but for anniversaries, sweet sixteens, birthday parties, and more. Another very popular topper is our Initials Swarovski Cake Jewelry Toppers
(LCC-CT0X). This one is also available in traditional monogram style or with an ampersand like the Brushed Silver/Gold mentioned prior, though it is not available in numerals. However, there is also the option of a heart instead of an ampersand, which is a completely unique and adorable touch.
Though monogram cake toppers
are more likely to be chosen over any other, personalized wedding cake toppers
are still great ideas as an alternate. Rather than a monogram, you have the ability to put your full names on the cake topper, and if the option is available, the event date. We can't help but swoon over this brand new Personalized Sweetheart Wedding Cake Topper
(ZPKXSWCT). Though a bit more costly than the others, you really can't get any more customized with this topper. The stainless steel is twisted into your names specifically, creating not only your one of a kind cake topper but a memorable keepsake. The downside is it takes three weeks in production prior to shipping, so it's definitely not recommended that this be a last minute decision. Of course today many couples are on a tighter budget, and not all cake toppers are as expensive as that one. Our Personalized Acrylic Heart Cake Top
(LCC-1303) is one of the most popular among personalized cake toppers, and takes much less time to produce. Personalize it with both first names and the date of the event, and the text will be printed beneath the two hearts already etched into the acrylic. Alternately, you can also have it personalized with a three letter monogram in a flourish script style.
