When it comes to wedding cake decor, most couples choose to adorn their wedding cake with a cake topper of some kind. Wedding cake toppers come in many forms and can be as different as the couples who choose them. From elegant monograms to fun and humorous cake toppers, you'll find something unique to crown your wedding cake in style and put a personal touch on your wedding cake.
Here are the main types of wedding cake toppers:
Floral Wedding Cake Toppers
As flowers are such a big part of weddings, it's only natural that flowers would make their way atop wedding cakes too. Flowers as wedding cake toppers add natural beauty to wedding cakes and are perfect for any type of wedding that features flowers in other areas like the bride's bouquet or table centerpieces. Floral cake toppers can be created by a small tight bunch of blooms on the top of the cake or a group of flowers cascading down the wedding cake.
You can use silk or real flowers as a wedding cake topper. If you use natural blooms, be sure to use varieties that will remain fresh without water for a few hours. You don't want faded and wilting flowers on top of your wedding cake.
Humorous Wedding Cake Toppers
If you and your fiancé joke around a lot or want to lighten up the seriousness of your wedding, there are wedding cake toppers that will give a sense of comedy to your wedding reception. You can find lots of wedding cake toppers that will make you giggle. Humorous cake toppers are available that feature the bride and groom climbing up the wedding cake, the bride fishing for the groom and even a cake topper where the bride drags the groom by the pant leg. Though they're certainly not for every couple, if you and your fiancé have a fun sense of humor and want to lighten up your wedding reception, a funny wedding cake topper will do the trick.
