A cake topper is a great way to let your personality shine on your wedding day. Some people prefer traditional cake toppers, with the bride and groom standing side by side and looking gorgeous. That is good, however if you want to show your guests just who you really are, then going for something a little unique is sometimes best. Cake toppers can really be anything from a couple standing side by side to an arrangement of flowers that match your theme. If you're going for something a bit more creative, it's good to think a bit outside of the box.
One thing that can make a good cake topper is fake butterflies. These creatures are whimsical and pretty and can range in color to match any sort of theme. Match them up with some of your favorite flowers and you can have a really pretty and cheap cake topper that is sure to make everyone stare in awe.
If you want to go for more of a vintage look, one idea is to get a cameo couple or a silhouette. These are not traditionally used as cake toppers, but you can always get some customer silhouettes made up of you and your partner and use that as a cake topper! Plus it's always something you can display in a picture frame after the wedding, to remind you of that special day.
Do you and your partner have any pets? You can always get a couple cake topper that looks like the pets that you have! Or you can even use a caricature version of yourselves as your favorite animals. You can also use swans with their necks in the shape of hearts or cats with their tails entwined. It's just another unique idea to keep in mind for your wedding day. If you and your partner love animals, why not show it off, right?
Funny wedding cake toppers are becoming steadily more popular in today's society, so there are a lot more to choose from than there were years ago! You can go with something that looks like the couple is playing football together to something that looks like the wife is wearing the pants in the relationship. There are a lot of cake toppers out there that you can choose from, it's all a matter of preference!
Another idea that is sure to be the topic of many conversations is to use your favorite cartoon characters on top of your cake. Classic cartoon romances are all about being happy and keeping each other smiling and just being yourselves. One of the more popular cartoon couples is Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse. You can get a couple of figurines of these characters to crown your wedding cake with to give it that unique, personal touch.
Thinking outside of the box when it comes to your cake topper for your wedding is a great way to show off your unique personality. Make it something that everyone will remember for years after your big day!
