How to Choose a Wedding Cake Topper

Incorporating a wedding cake topper in the wedding cake is more than just a decoration. It is a memento of your wedding day. It is a sure way of ensuring that your wedding day will forever remain in your minds for many years to come. You can decide to keep it on a shelf or a mantle in your living room to act as a reminder of the wedding day. Here are a few tips on how to choose a wedding cake topper.

  • Go for high-quality material. As mentioned earlier, wedding cake toppers are no longer considered as decorations. Modern day wedding cake toppers are made of durable materials such as metal, crystal, glass, acrylic or porcelain. This is meant to ensure that the wedding cake topper will have maximum beauty and it will also be durable. Modern wedding cake toppers are even studded with Swarovski crystals. These crystals pick up the light and reflect it throughout the room adding brilliance to the photos taken during the cake cutting process.
  • Personal Touch. You should ensure that the wedding cake topper you choose has a personal touch to it. You should also make sure that it also has an artistic touch as well. If you make the right choice when choosing the wedding cake topper, then you can be guaranteed that your cake will definitely come alive and also add emphasis to your wedding theme. You can begin the process of choosing your wedding cake topper by considering the theme you are planning on using in your wedding. This is important in ensuring that you will go for a wedding cake topper that will complement the wedding’s theme.
  • Choose the wedding cake design together with the wedding cake topper. It is worth noting that not every wedding cake topper will fit the wedding cake design. Therefore, you are supposed to make sure that when you are selecting the design of the cake, you should also select the wedding cake topper as well. This will go a long way in making sure that the cake and the wedding cake topper will be a perfect match. At this point, you should also ensure that you have talked to your pastry chef and discussed various designs. The pastry chef can also give you several ideas which can help you in choosing the perfect wedding cake topper.
  • Consider the weight of the topper. Considering the weight of the wedding topper is very important. This is because if the weight of the topper is too much, you will require additional support. This will, of course, cost more than the amount you had planned for.
  • Be creative. You could decide to choose a wedding cake topper that looks like both of you. This is a romantic idea which also shows creativity and originality. You can even go the extra step and make sure that the details of the topper are clear to the eye. Whichever design you choose, make sure it is personal and romantic.
