A Military Cake Topper for a Military Couple

If you or your soon to be spouse are in the military, then that means that your lives are going to be at a constant waist deep in that military world. Military members serve our country and deserve respect and support. Framing your wedding, or at least your cake topper, to represent your or your fiance's role in protecting our country is a great way to symbolize your constant willingness to love, sacrifice, and support your spouse throughout your whole life.  Wedding Collectibles always strives to give appropriate and fun options for our military couples to celebrate their new journey and adventure. 

Military Marine Rhinestone Cake Topper

The above figurine cake topper depicts a uniformed marine and his blushing bride. Often, military members may choose to don the military uniform as their formal wear at their wedding, and if your groom decides to wear his uniform, the cake topper should reflect that. The idea is to have your cake topper represent you and your new spouse in the best way possible. So whether your love is in the marines, navy, air force, or army, you will want to represent that military branch that he has dedicated his life to. 

Military "Over the Threshold" Cake Topper- Air Force - Navy - Army - Marines

This cake topper is a more fun rendition of a military  cake topper. It calls on two romantic images; the first being the tradition of the groom carrying the bride across the threshold of their new home together, the second being reminiscent of that iconic dip kiss photo of the nurse and sailor in times square at the end of world war II. What could be more perfect to capture your classic everlasting love, than encompassing two classic love images? What is great about this cake topper is that you can switch out which military seal that it comes with so that you can make it perfect for you and your fiance.

Another great option to create your uniquely you military cake topper is to choose a military styled base and to mix it with any traditional (or not) bride and groom figurine. This allows you to have more control over exactly what your cake topper will look like. You may choose to pair it with a uniformed figurine, like what is above, or one of our other toppers such as the "Adorable Leg Pop" wedding cake topper or the "First Dance" wedding cake topper. Both options evoke senses of love, joy, and exhilaration; all of which will help any couple remember the intensity at which they started their journey together.
