The wedding cake topper base is a big choice when designing your wedding cake.
What are the choices?
Jeweled 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".
Themed 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.
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!

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.
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!
