How to Keep Your Wedding Cake Topper Keepsake

How to Keep Your Wedding Cake Topper Keepsake

Language of Love Forever Wedding Cake Topper Figurine

When we say "how to keep" your cake topper we basically mean, "what the heck do you do with it after the wedding?" Wedding cake toppers are beautiful, sentimental, and are the type of keepsake that you could potentially pass down to your future children. Even if your wedding cake topper is not ideal for being handed down through the generations and is instead a uniquely you design, it is still a memento and symbol of your special wedding day and because of this we recommend keeping that beautiful wedding cake topper out of a storage box and instead put on display!

Wooden Keepsake Display Stand

When displaying your cake topper there are a few things you should consider: First is the break-ability of your cake topper, second is the size of your cake topper, and third is the style of your cake topper. For example, if your cake topper is more comedic it probably won't mesh in a formal living room displayed in a glass case, and contrarily, if you have a crystal or porcelain wedding cake topper, then you won't want it to be on a entry table that is easily bumped or a coffee table that is frequently in use. If you have a particularly small cake topper you may consider creating a wedding day shadow box that includes the cake topper, your wedding bouquet, handkerchief, a photo, and other wedding keepsakes. A wedding day shadow box is a fun and creative way to display your wedding keepsakes, but if you are looking for something simpler, more transitional, and focused on your wedding cake topper, something like the above wooden display stand would be ideal. This stand incorporates your cake topper, a personalized message, and wedding photo. By having a display stand you can designate a less-bump-able/please-don't-touch room decor, while keeping it open and  a less museum-serious-glass-case display.

 

You spend so much time planning every detail of your wedding from picking out your wedding dress to selecting your wedding cake topper, and then it is over in just the blink of an eye. Let you wedding cake topper stand as a reminder of the planning, joy, and love of that special day.

The Best Flowers to Accompany a Traditional Wedding Cake Topper

 

The Best Flowers to Accompany a Traditional Wedding Cake Topper

Wedding Collectibles Caucasian Couple Figurine

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. 

Sunflower & Burlap Wedding Cake

Too Big

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. 

  Memento's Designs TooSmall

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.

 

Spring Wedding Flower - Lily of the ValleyJust Right

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.

Your Traditional Wedding Cake Topper

A Traditional Wedding Cake Topper for your Nuptials

Traditional Wedding Cake Topper

You don't have to be engaging in a typical wedding or a "traditional" marriage in order to enjoy a traditional wedding cake topper. A traditional wedding cake topper is perfect for any wedding occasion, and is "traditional" only in the sense that it makes a nostalgic and elegant touch to your big day. A traditional wedding cake topper could feature a same-sex couple, couples of different and mixed ethnicities, and every other grouping under the sun. A traditional wedding cake topper often refers only to the pose and style of the figurine. A traditional wedding cake topper will feature a bride and a groom (or a groom and a groom and a bride and a bride) embracing in a tactful manner atop a beautifully decorated iced confection (or dessert table or otherwise). Be sure when you order your traditional wedding cake topper that you've already talked to your wedding cake baker and you know what to expect. Make sure the surface you're placing your traditional wedding cake topper on is sturdy and solid - no one like a topper sinking half way into the top tier of German chocolate!   A traditional wedding cake topper is "traditional" only in style and aesthetic - all couples can enjoy and employ them!
