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!

Love My Cake Topper! I received my cake topper this afternoon and I cannot express in words how much I love it!

It arrived so well packaged that it didn’t stand a chance of breaking – despite the fact that it is a fragile piece! I can’t believe it arrived to Boston from the West Coast in such impeccable condition. I would recommend Wedding Collectibles to any bride!!!

The Winter Wedding: How it is the Most Romantic Season

Winter Wedding Bouquet

Winter Wedding Wonderland

There are a lot of Brides that will decide to have a longer engagement in order to avoid a winter wedding. Perhaps they have always had their heart set on that spring wedding, but I would bet they may only be seeing winter as the wet, cold, gray, and maybe a little sad, season. But there really is something magical about winter. Try and think about the first time you saw snow. If you grew up with snow, you might not be able to pin point it, but the feeling people get as they watch the soft snowflakes dance down and kiss their lashes and cheeks, is truly unforgettable.

Winter is the time of year that forces you to realize how much love you have. We often describe love as a feeling of warmth we have inside our chest, a feeling of renewed exhilaration, and even a childlike giddiness. The cold of winter let’s you feel that warmth in your heart. As you cuddle with your special someone watching the snow or rain fall, the warmth between you can feel like it seals you together. Winter is a time that people (and your guests!) will come closer together.

Winter Wedding

A Winter Wedding: Add That Cuddly-Love Touch

In winter, the air becomes crisp, giving you the physical manifestation of what exhilaration feels like. As you drink in that crisp winter air, it feels your lungs with a feeling of a fresh start. Despite the fact that the flowers are closing up and the leaves have fallen, that winter air gives the feelings of the beginnings of something new because underneath those past blossoms is the rumblings of new roses. This is just like how as your single life comes to a close, your new adventure as a married couple begins. 

For brides that think of winter as a sad time of year, don’t forget about the child-like joy it inspires. There are snowball fights, sledding, hot coco, snowman building, and the building excitement of Christmas day. This can inspire your wedding to be light and playful, and full of a joy that is pure. 

Winter could be said to be the most romantic and love inspiring season of the year!

        

Impressed – The Love Pinch Bridal Couple Figurine Review

I just wanted to write and let you know how impressed I was with the quality of the wedding topper I ordered. It came packed so that nothing could possibly happen to it. It was shipped quickly too. It was easy to order online and I felt that I didn’t have to worry about a thing after ordering and I was right. The right product came and as I said, the quality of the topper is excellent. It’s not just a cheap plastic hollow topper. I had hoped to be able to pass it down to my children for use someday and that is exactly the quality it is. I would highly recommend this product or any from Wedding Collectibles!

The Wedding Cake Topper and Your Wedding Theme

 

How to Choose a Wedding Cake Topper and Design Suitable for Your Wedding Theme

Wedding Cake Topper and Design Themes
Find Wedding Cake Toppers Perfect for Your Wedding Theme

Before the wedding cake can be checked off the wedding to-do list as being “complete” or even be considered completely perfect by the happy couple, there still needs to be one element to top it all off–the wedding cake topper–which can be either edible or a decorative piece, like a wedding figurine that the bride and groom can keep after the wedding. A wedding cake topper that doubles as a decorative piece needs to be able to coordinate with the rest of the wedding theme and even the wedding cake itself, but how can this all be accomplished?

 

Wedding Cake Topper Coordination

A personalized wedding with inexpensive and affordable decor is still going to be just as memorable and perfect as a wedding where thousands were spent on the decor alone. One of the smaller pieces that can really set the theme is the wedding cake topper. Here are the best aspects of a wedding cake topper to consider coordinating with the rest of the wedding as well as the cake itself.

For vintage or quirky weddings, consider a different kind of wedding cake topper that includes animals rather than humans. One of the most common animals used in wedding decor happens to be birds, but certain types of toppers can look vintage or absolutely elegant with cats or dogs.

Look at the core colors of the wedding cake topper because it can tie the theme together, as well as match the cake itself. Whether the wedding colors happen to be dark brown and blue or yellow and white, pick the topper or have a topper created with the main colors of the big day.

 

A Wedding Cake Topper for Every Style

A wedding that is both elegant and minimal can still have a cake topper that isn’t seen as “over the top.” In fact there are minimal toppers, which happen to be the traditional bride and groom or even the couple’s monograms.

For a chic and trendy wedding that isn’t stuck in tradition, there are wedding cake toppers available! Pictures of the couple can be used and chic designs can also be included to complement the theme.

Sometimes it feels as though something is missing on the wedding cake, and usually that’s the wedding cake topper that sits at the top of the cake. It can truly make or break the overall wedding decor and theme and thankfully a unique wedding cake topper doesn’t have to cost hundreds of dollars either.

Unique Wedding Cake Toppers: What to Choose?

Unique Wedding Cake Toppers

It might be seen as a small touch in the grand scheme of wedding decor, but unique wedding cake toppers will make a big impression. Think about it. Those little figurines, monogrammed letters, or love birds, are standing in for you and your groom. Plus, the wedding cake is often a central point of focus during the reception, and that puts a spot light on whatever it is you have displayed on top of that fondant frosting. 

Vintage Style Wedding Cake Topper Figurine

 So, what is it that you want that cake topper to say? Will it be traditional? A sweet vintage set? A sassy sexy set? One with flowers, doves, lace, or glittering monogrammed letters?

Traditional for the Traditional Bride

Paper Roses Wedding Cake Topper - Custom Hair Colors!

If you have been dreaming of a white wedding with those ruby red roses since you discovered that white fluffy wedding dress in your mother’s closet, then a traditional set may be what your heart is set on. Traditional, however, doesn’t mean plain Jane. There are a lot of sets that offer customization of hair color and ethnicity. Additionally, there are so many selections of topper bases that can include lace, handmade flowers, flower arches, and a variety of subtle (or not) touches of color.  

Sweet, Adorable, and a Little Bit Vintage

Are you one of those couples that when people ask how you met or are witness to your googly-eyed gazing, they are swept  away by how adorably in love you are (or gag because they just can’t handle your lovey dovey cuteness? If so, you need an adorable cake topper to match. Some suggestions of sugary-sweet toppers are old-time vintage porcelain figurines. These may be the type of figurines that are in your grandmother’s fine china cabinet, but when placed on top of a cake at your wedding, you can be sure to get an “awww” and “how precious!” 

"I'll Love U 4 EVER" Car Wedding Cake Topper

Another gag-me-adorable unique wedding cake topper style would be to find one that is as googly-eyed gazing as you and your groom! Try our almost too cute “A Kiss Above” cake topper, or the just as adorable “I’ll Love U 4 EVER” Car Wedding Cake Topper!

Sassy and Sexy for a Bride with a Spunky Attitude

So, maybe you don’t want your unique wedding cake topper to be overtly gushy or perhaps you want to mix it up more than what a traditional cake topper can give you. In that case, why not just GO FOR IT! 

"Super Sexy Dancing" Wedding Bride and Groom Cake Topper Figurine

There is such a huge variety of unique wedding cake toppers available, that range from the kind your grandparents used, to those that might make a conservative bride blush. Or if you want to stay away from the super sexy and just go for something fun and spunky, try looking into something like our Gone Fishing Mix & Match Cake Toppers, and guarantee some playful conversations and laughs at the reception. 

Unique Wedding Cake Toppers truly are that one piece of wedding decor that make a decided statement about you and your wedding. And most importantly, all that matters is what you want.  Will you be traditional, sweet, or a little more on the sassy side?

Wedding Cake Toppers & Table Settings

Elegant wedding table setting

What makes for the best, most memorable wedding? Why personalization, of course! The happy couple who is about to get married wants to be able to reflect their own likes and personality into the wedding and this also means a very unique and personalized wedding that every guest is sure to remember, which can include the customization of everything from the wedding cake toppers to table settings. So, what kinds of unique wedding decor should a bride and groom look into for a certain kind of charm in their own wedding? Here is a comprehensive list to check out:

Animal Decorations
When it comes to the big day, why not add a little flair in the way animal decorations? One of the most popular happens to be birds (because of “love birds”) and they can add a bit of uniqueness because there are countless animal decorations for table settings, wedding cake toppers, the guestbook, and so much more. Other animals can include dogs, cats, and even fish.

Funny Bride-and-Groom Decorations
Sometimes a wedding isn’t going to be all about the glamor but rather a more intimate, casual setting and funny themed decorations happen to be the best. Wedding cake toppers with brides and grooms in Hawaiian shirts or in funny poses are perfect for such an occasion.

 

Simple But Elegant Table Settings

The table settings don’t need to be expensive in order to look elegant. In fact, there are inexpensive ways to make the settings look absolutely gorgeous–whether it is through a floral arrangement, colored stones, or even floating candles in water.

Why Not Monogram Everything, Including Your Wedding Cake Toppers?

  • From the guestbook to the invitations and even the wedding cake itself can be adorned with the happy couple’s monogram to make everything even more unique and personalized. It is also very inexpensive to do with the right wedding planning.

A wedding doesn’t have to be like every other wedding. It can be memorable for both the bride and groom and their guests, all it takes is making the theme and overall decor unique and personalized with the right kind of accents.
