Unique Wedding Gift Ideas

Being invited to join a bride and groom on their wedding day is a special privilege. It is important to show your support for the new couple on their special day, not only by attending, but also by giving a gift.  You may decide to give a gift designed for both the bride and groom, or to the bride and groom individually, depending on your relationship with each.  So what gifts can you give? Here are a few ideas:

For the Bride: Something Sweet and Sentimental

A Bride's Tradition (From Friend or Family to the Bride) Wedding Handkerchief

One traditional gift for the bride is the wedding handkerchief. This is a gift that is appropriate from a family member or a friend who is extremely close to the family and more particularly the bride. This can be a particularly sweet gift from the father of the bride. The handkerchief in the image above comes with a sweet poem card, a lucky penny, and a blue ribbon; All of which are meant to help tell the bride just how happy you are for her and to wish the happy couple the best. Other handkerchiefs can be embroidered with sweet sentiments or customized with the names of the bride and groom, the date of the wedding, or perhaps their favorite scripture. 

Help the Couple Make their House(or apartment) a Home

Home State Throw Pillow

A sweet, and less intimate gift, is customized home decor. Be it a painting, print, or embroidered pillow, a bride always appreciates something nice for her home that represents her love with her groom. A popular trend is home-state decor. These come in a variety of shapes, but are designed to have the home state of the bride and the groom brought together or the state they are beginning their home in printed on the canvas, blanket, or pillow. 

Linen Hemstitch Napkins

Every newlywed appreciates kitchenware items to build their home, but if you are going the kitchenware route, take it one step farther and make it unique for your blushing bride. Monogramming everything you own may be a trend of the past, but monogramming wedding gifts to symbolize the union of two families, is a trend happening right now. If you know the bride and groom have a taste for whine, then why not give the gift of a personalized whine decanter or whine glasses? Or if your Bride is often a hostess or you know she has a particularly sweet sweet-tooth then a personalized dessert bowl would be a perfect gift.

Fun Wedding Cake Toppers Add Smiles!

Fun Wedding Cake Toppers Add Smiles to Your Wedding Day

Your wedding day is a day to be remembered, celebrated, and of course, it should also be filled with smiles and laughter. It is a joyous day of two people coming together in a long-lasting union, the next chapter in their lives that they also wish to share with friends and family in a special ceremony. While memories will certainly be made, one of the best ways to do this is through wedding decorations and accessories. Whether it’s a quirky guestbook, photobooths for guests, or even the decor itself, a bride and groom need to consider how they want to put smiles on the faces of their guests.

Fun Wedding Cake Toppers

One of the best ways to achieve this? Choosing the right wedding cake topper. Most wedding cake toppers are the traditional bride and groom in their respective wedding dress and tuxedo, but there are other ways to entertain guests with the wedding cake by making it quirky and unique. There are all sorts of cake toppers out there.

Perfectly Fun Wedding Cake Toppers

Is the happy couple fans of Disney? How about being a geek couple? There are character-inspired wedding cake toppers that can Mickey and Minnie Mouse, comic book characters, or even famous movie characters.

Are the bride and groom animal lovers? There are wedding cake toppers for pets, too! Cats, dogs, birds, and even lizards can replace the standard cake toppers that can normally be found on top of the wedding cake.

A Fun Twist on Traditional Wedding Cake Toppers

Some of the most endearing wedding cake toppers of all are the “traditional” bride and groom wedding cake toppers captured in non-traditional poses. Instead of standing side-by-side, the bride could be dragging the groom behind her or maybe the groom forgets to put on his pants and is sporting boxers with hearts on them. For very casual weddings, there are even wedding cake topper figurines dressed in Hawaiian shirts and flip-flops.

Wedding cake toppers are a great way to tie the theme together between the wedding decorations and cake while also being a small but memorable trinket to make your guests smile and enjoy the wedding even more. And the best thing of all? All of these unique wedding cake toppers are very affordable.

Choosing a Wedding Cake Topper Base

When designing your wedding cake there is a lot that goes into making it perfect. There is of course the flavor, the size, the frosting type and color, fondant designs, and then the crowning wedding cake topper. With that wedding cake topper there is one more selection that is sometimes forgotten; The Wedding Cake Topper Base. Cake toppers can be paired with a variety of base types, making that crowing element exactly what it is you want. 

The wedding cake topper base is a big choice when designing your wedding cake.

What are the choices?

Burgundy Antique Silk and Rhinestones DIY Cake Topper BaseJeweled Base: The jeweled base is an ideal choice for a simple, but dazzling addition to your wedding cake topper. You can have the shimmer of jewels be the focus or pair it with material in your wedding color. 

Floral Base: A floral base works great with an outdoor, whimsical, or spring wedding (Or if you just like flowers!).  This is probably one of the more common bases that you will find. The flowers on the base could be a printed a, a beaded design, or they could be made of silk or paper. This allows a common type of base to have a variety of unique selections.

Lace (or Doily) Base: When you hear the word lace or doily, you may start thinking old fashioned and of your grandma’s house. However, in the wedding world, lace (when done right) is a word associated with classic beauty and romance. A lace base would be a perfect addition to a sweet Willow’s Tree cake topper, such as “Love’s Embrace”

Shell Beach DIY Cake Topper BaseThemed Base: Having a themed wedding? Then select a base that coordinates with that wonderfully fun topper you have picked out. For example, if you are having a beach themed wedding then your base should emulate the sand, or perhaps be adorned with beautiful sea shells. 

Calla Lily Arch DIY Cake Topper Base

Arch Base: A base with an arched design is perfect when you are trying to create a beautiful, elegant, and romantic wedding cake topper. These are best paired with traditional or vintage cake topper set. They can be done in all white, or may include subtle color splashes,in a variety of flower styles. Additionally, these can include beads and jewels, making them the base that is most likely to include it all!

No Base: If you are not planning on using a figurine wedding cake topper, then you probably won’t need a topper base. The most common would be if you are putting fresh flowers on your cake. Another would be if you are looking into a monogram cake topper because they are typically designed with a stake to put into your cake. So when deciding on your wedding cake topper, check if  it needs a base or if a base can be used to add that extra flare!
