How to Keep it Classy When Using a Sporty Cake Topper

Heidi and Kevin Wedding - Laura Shepard Photography

A newly married bride, Heidi, met her husband on the basketball courts of her college gym. She was in gym shorts, a quick ponytail, and was a force to be noticed. And she was noticed by an equally sweaty and probably smellier Kevin. They flirted (smack talked), then dated (Heidi wore here hair down), and were attracted to each others athletic, spunky, and kind (good sport) attitude. When planning their wedding they wanted to implement that basketball game meeting. Before their guest arrived, they “played” a little one on one and “shot hoops”. Heidi in her wedding dress and Kevin in his suit. Heidi also decided to wear cute tennis shoes as her wedding shoes at her reception and put Kevin in matching shoes in order to bring in the sporty and fun personality of their relationship. Heidi and Kevin had a beautiful wedding and a equally lovely reception, but were able to include their sporty (and possibly more frizz haired and smelly) side. 

Another simple way to do this is to include a fun, sporty cake topper. This is a small element, but will be center stage on top of your wedding cake.

What we love about this cake topper is that it plays on that sweet flirtation the lives the strongest at the start of the best romances. It is a cliched move for a guy to “show” a girl how to do things like bowl, golf, shoot a hoop, as an excuse to get closer together. Choosing a cake topper like this is an inspiration and a promise to always make excuses to be close together. This would a be a tasteful addition to help you add a little fun to your wedding decor without sacrificing the class of that traditional bride and groom cake topper.
