The Best Flowers to Accompany a Traditional Wedding Cake Topper
If you have had your heart set on a traditional bride and groom cake topper or perhaps plan to use the same one your parents used , but you also really like the idea of flowers on your cake don't think you can't do both! You just want to make sure you don't let the flowers over power or otherwise hide your cake topper and you don't want the floral design to be so insignificant that it is like there is nothing there at all.
Sunflowers, Peonies, and Garden Roses are some wedding flower favorites that can look great on a cake, but if you want to have a cake topper too, these would be overbearing and would take away from the cake topper you so carefully picked out. If you find smaller sunflowers, it could work, but they are still a really bold flower choice, so you will have to play with it.
Flowers like baby's breath could end up being too small. The above cake looks great, but the flowers are such a small element that unless you do do something where the cake is colored, the flowers won't make much of an impact. If you want the flowers on the cake to be a complete side note, then these might work for you, but if you want flowers to be a major part of the cake's design that works with the cake topper, these just won't cut it. Baby's breath really is just a filler flower, It is the soft stuff that goes in-between the pretty stuff and they just don't quite make enough of an impact to go on a wedding cake.
The lily of the valley flower is a great option for a cake with flowers and a cake topper, Like the baby's breath, the flowers are small, but not overly small. This allows for you to have a floral cake design that frames a wedding cake topper without over doing it. Other flowers that can fit this just right category are daisies and lilacs.
