Does a Wedding Cake Topper Need a Base?

The most basic answer to this frequent question is no. Cake topper bases are more often than not only used for aesthetic appeal. So the question you should ask yourself is do you want your cake topper to have a base? Bases can add an element of creativity, elegance, and even fun. But, depending on your cake topper and the base in question, it may add a formality that you are not looking for. At Wedding Collectibles we provide cake toppers with and without bases and bases that can be used with your choice of cake topper. It is the DIY of wedding cake toppers. Click here for bases that can be mixed and matched with any wedding topper.

There will be some cases where a base is required or a base cannot really be used. For example, if you are purchasing a glass cake topper, it is required to have some sort of base or stand for safety concerns, such that we do not sell glass figurines as cake toppers unless they have a base. Please note that acrylic cake toppers will often look like glass toppers, but do not require a base, so please be sure to read the product descriptions if you are unsure.

Action Wedding Collectible

 The Secret Life of Pets film

Then, many of our monogram cake toppers and action toppers cannot be used with a base because they are made to be held to the cake through the use of prongs. For example, in the wedding cake topper above, the climbing groom has prongs in his hands and feet. This assures that the figure will stay where you want it, though it won’t exactly work as the best collectible on your mantle and it has no need for a cake topper base.

Real Maryland Wedding With Trevor & Emily

Meet The Couple When asked about their first kiss, Emily simply stated, "It was awesome, perfect, and in a hammock." This, almost completely, describes the relationship between Trevor and Emily. These two love birds met in Utah in January of 2011; her first memory of Trevor being him "showing off" on the piano playing "Great Balls of Fire" during a church choir practice.They began dating in August of 2011 when Emily invited Trevor to go running with her. It wasn't long after that until they, and anyone within two feet of them, knew that they were meant for each other.  In a way, Emily's sweetness and Trevor's (sometimes described as annoying by his siblings) habit of knowing everything about just about everything, strikes a balance between the two, making it easy to love one another.

Bride and Groom

Trevor proposed to Emily at a picnic at the Corona Del Mar beach. His family can remember his eagerness as he whisked her off to this specially planned picnic after an 8 hour drive from Utah to California to visit his family, unable to wait another day. Mormon Temple The couple was married six months latter in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saint's Maryland Temple on May 4th.

Little Details

Sunflower Bouquet For her bridal's Emily used big sunflowers that really just match her beaming personality. Then on her wedding day her bouquet was made of Lily of the Valley and were arranged by a close friend. She wanted to keep things simple and pretty, so her colors were sage green, cream, and coral pink. She had her bridesmaids pick out their own dresses in cream and had her family dress in cream also. Harkness+Fenn+Temple+Wedding+1-1840666961-O copy Wedding Family The ceremony was the most important part for them and as Emily indicated, "It went perfectly". They were most grateful to have so much family and friends present, especially since they decided to have the wedding in Emily's hometown in Maryland and all of Trevor's family were on the west coast. Bird Cake Toppers At the reception they had these adorable bird "you and I" cake toppers and a cake trimmed in Lily of the valley. DPP_0002-1843659015-O copy At the reception, they upheld quite a few of wedding traditions including cutting the cake, the father daughter and mother and son dance, the first dance, and even a money dance! They also did a bouquet toss and a garter toss, both were caught by the maid of honor and the best man! Father Daughter Dance First Dance Garter Toss Wedding Tradition Wedding Photos They even included a poster cut out of Trevor's brother who was unable to attend the wedding since he was serving a mission for his church. This is a great way to have those important family members who can't make it to the wedding feel like they are a part of everything!

A Second Reception

Then, because the families lived on opposite coasts, the couple had a second reception or open house at the Fenn's residence in California so that more of Trevor's family and friends could attend. Just Married Wedding Photos576876_428164607215836_1442390054_n 560444_427969863901977_480844459_nInstead of cake, they decided to serve mini pies! They were made by a personal friend of Trevor's mother. Wedding Reception The reception decorations were done by family and friends, as were the photography at both wedding receptions. 533188_427969767235320_1210805609_nWedding Reception To The Present Now the happy couple has just recently celebrated their second year of marriage, Trevor is nearing the completion of his first degree, and the two are expecting a baby girl this July! A big thanks to Trevor and Emily for sharing their wedding with us and with future brides.

How to Develop a Wedding Theme or Style

How to Develop a Wedding Theme or Style

It may seem kind of self serving to say, but wedding accessories are very important when it comes to fully developing your wedding theme or style. If all of your accessories are a mish-mash of what you borrowed from other people, your wedding may begin to look a little mish-mashed. Of course, if you are looking to create a more eclectic style, then by all means, go for it; it is a great way to save money. Otherwise, you are going to want your wedding accessories to be hand picked, just for you and your wedding dream.  When developing your wedding theme and style, there are four areas of your wedding that your accessories are essential: The bride, the ceremony, the table centerpieces, and the cake. Whether you are on a budget or not, these or the four sections of your wedding that you want to pay extra attention to.
  1. The Bride  1920s Inspired Knoxville Wedding Let's face it. When people go to a wedding the first thing they want to look at is the bride. Not to objectify her, but she is the center-stone to the whole event. The bride and her dress. Your choice of wedding dress will heavily influence the tone of the wedding. For example, if you choose to wear a ballroom gown, but are having a bohemian theme, the two styles will clash. Then, you have to decide on how to do your hair and what bridal accessories to wear. These accessories will make or break your wedding look.
  2. The Ceremony  1920s Inspired Knoxville Wedding There are of course a lot of different aspects of the wedding ceremony that are going to affect your wedding theme or style. The location is of course key, but it is often what you do with that location that is going to really establish you in your ceremony. And really, there are a lot more wedding accessories that go into the wedding ceremony than many people realize, many of which depend on what traditions you are upholding. For example, you may need to decide on a unity candle, SAND JAR, flower baskets, or a  ring pillow.
  3. Reception Centerpieces  1920s Inspired Knoxville Wedding In terms of reception decor, the centerpieces are going to be HUGE in establishing your theme or style. Taking the 1920's Inspired wedding that is featured on the Ruffled blog as an example, this bride's centerpiece is very simple, but the long stemmed vases and the mod styled center mat evoke that 1920's feel more than if she had just a regular rounded vase and a plain white table clothe. The center mat is probably what gives the 1920's vibe the most and is even reminiscent of the great american novel based in the 20's, The Great Gatsby. So, as you prioritize your reception decoration budget, be sure to pay attention to your centerpieces with what flowers, vases, candles, table numbers, place settings, and any other unique ornaments you wish to use.
  4. The Cake Vintage Romance Sonoma Wedding The cake stands as one of the focal points of pretty much any reception and you are adhering to the tradition of cutting the cake, then you know it will end up at center stage, making the cake's design and accessories very important. Cake accessories that you will be choosing from will mainly be cake toppers, but may also include flowers. Wedding cake toppers are a great opportunity to establish your wedding theme, and as the cute bunny toppers in the photo above demonstrate, do not need to be completely traditional. Really, there are cake toppers made to work with almost any wedding theme and style.The wedding cake topper you choose is often reflective of your couple personality too and is one of the few wedding decorations that not only symbolize your love, but can also last beyond the wedding as a keepsake.

Top Ten "Cinderella Moment" Wedding Cake Toppers

Top Ten "Cinderella Moment" Wedding Cake Toppers

Most little girls dream of being a princess at one point or another, and when you are all grown up and getting married, that wedding day is the perfect opportunity to make yourself into that princess. A lot of brides choose to capture that Cinderella moment in their wedding and these cake toppers will help you do just that -whether you want to literally feature Cinderella or just embody her dream come true story.
  1. Cinderella's Disney Wedding Day Cake Topper - Lenox The number one cake topper for our Cinderella moment is a Cinderella cake topper! Hurray! This cake topper is impeccably made and by having the storybook couple in their wedding attire, it more easily fits in with formal wedding tones. The extra details of crystals across Cinderella's dress and the doves on the base are what make this cake topper extraordinary.

  2. A "Cinderella Moment" Figurine Cinderella Moment Cake Topper
    This cake topper is great for the less literal Cinderella bride. It instead embodies the idea of being the beautiful princess in love with the gentlemen prince. Basically, we love this sweet pose and think it would work great with a true love Cinderella wedding.

  3. Fairy Tale Dreams Castle Cake Topper Cinderella Castle Cake Topper "And they lived happily ever after..." Talk about perfect! This cake topper is our number three for the brides that don't have their heart set on a bride and groom figurine, but really want that fairy tale love to show through. It has wonderful stone wall detailing and really does look like a castle. Additionally, the simple white coloring will melt easily into any color scheme or background.

  4. Crystal Cinderella Castle Cake Topper with Arch This cake topper features a charmingly colored hand cut crystal castle that is by far the most unique of the castle wedding cake toppers on this list. The crystal castle is fittingly accompanied by crystals in the faux-pearl archway, and a base that is accented by silk cording that together creates a graceful and picturesque aesthetic.
  5. Pumpkin Coach Cake Topper With Porcelain Base  
    This cake topper is just darling. The base is so unique and working with the heart arch gives the topper a vintage feel. Then the small pumpkin coach from the Cinderella story helps bring to mind how dreams can really come true.

  6. Glass Cinderella Pumpkin Coach Cake Topper With Horse Okay, I know the coach looks familiar, but this coach from the topper above paired with the horse figurine makes an adorable, magical, and unique wedding cake topper. It is both simple and sophisticated and will make for a wonderful wedding keepsake.

  7.  Off-White Porcelain Bride and Groom Wedding Cake Topper Figurine If we were just looking at traditional cake toppers, I am sure this topper would be a little higher up on our list. It is elegant and very polished. The veil is take-your-breath-away lovely and the rosy cheeks breathe life into the piece. It is number seven merely because it is not as closely related to the Cinderella theme and style.

  8. Cinderella Castle Cake Topper with Arch Castle Wedding Cake TopperThis cake topper is our number four because it features the delicate workmanship of blown glass. The faux-pearl arch and organza base give light to ideas of living in a fantasy or on the brim of clouds. We have had some brides that want just the castle -though I think the base and arch really add to the effect -but it is important to remember that glass figures can't be sold on their own and must have a base. You don't want to find yourself eating a glass filled bite of cake if one of those spires break.

  9. Cinderella and Prince Charming Wedding Cake Topper  This cake topper couldn't of not made it to the top ten list because it is the classic Cinderella image. It is lower on the list because the bright coloring may clash if you have a very specific color scheme. It is also the most literal of this "Cinderella moment" list. What we love most about this is its literalness precisely because it is reminiscent of childlike imagination and first love innocence.

  10. Alluring Crystal Spray Cake Topper with Swarovski Crystal

    Alluring Crystal Spray Cake Topper with Swarovski Crystal Our final "Cinderella moment" cake topper in our top ten is this crystal spray cake topper. If you are a Disney fanatic (as most Cinderella brides are) then you know what it is like to be standing front of the Cinderella castle at the Disneyland park watching the firework show. This cake topper reminds me a lot of that moment. It is made with Swarovski crystals -which is one of the highest grades of crystal- with two crystals per stem and it the perfect symbol for the fireworks that go off inside you each time you see your special someone.

How to Tell if Your Porcelain Cake Topper is Good Quality

What are some ways to tell if you are buying a good quality porcelain cake topper?
High Quality Porcelain

First off, porcelain is porcelain. There isn't good or bad; just different kinds. When it comes to cake toppers, what you are going to want to look for is how the figurine is made.
  1. Is it Porcelain?: First, you are going to want to check the material the cake topper you are buying is made out of. This will often be in the item description. Some of the most popular materials cake toppers are made of are porcelain, resin, & acrylic.
  2. Look at the hands and ears: Porcelain cake toppers are made from molds. After being used for a long time, molds lose their ability to produce detailed figurines. If the hands and ears look more like blobs or you can't distinguish fingers or the curve of the ear, it means the manufacturer has been using a mold for too long.
  3. The Paint Job: If a maker is not paying attention to the detail, there may be some mess ups with the paint. It would be more obvious with ethnic figurines, but a lower quality porcelain topper may have the paint intended for the skin, on the white wedding dress. This, of course, should not be happening!
  4. It's in the details!!: Some cake toppers are going to beCrystal Details  better than others based solely on the little details. Take the one featured above; part of what makes it so great is the Swarovski crystal that is used as hair accessories and on the wedding band. If a figurine is offering special ornamental motifs like this, you are looking at a porcelain cake topper of higher quality.
  5. Honestly, you are going to get what you pay for: Unless there is an amazing sale, it is likely that the price of the porcelain cake topper is going to reflect the quality of time and attention that is given to that piece. So if you are spending $50 on a cake topper it is going to be worth that $50, just like if you are paying $100 or if you are paying $20.
If you are shopping online, you are not going to be able to tell what the quality of your individual topper is. Keep in mind that the cake toppers featured in the photos are from the very first time the mold is used, and represent the maker's best work. Often, return policies on wedding accessories can be strict, so you are going to want to pay attention to your shop's return policy. At Wedding Collectibles, we sell from a wide range of wedding cake toppers from different manufactures, and do our best to provide you with the best cake toppers, but also provide options to some that may have more affordable prices. If you have your eye on one of the cake toppers we sell, take a look at our return policy by following the link here.

What is the Difference Between Porcelain Cake Toppers and Resin Cake Toppers?

So...What is the Difference Between Porcelain and Resin?

This is a common question at Wedding Collectibles because most wedding cake toppers are going to be made of one or the other. To answer this question I will go over the qualities of both, noting some pros and cons of each. It is important, however, to know that whether you should buy a porcelain cake topper versus a resin cake topper will depend more on what is important to you. Porcelain  Porcelain Cake Topper Porcelain is a ceramic material made similar to the way that glass is made, involving heating or firing of material such as clay.If it breaks, you will notice that the texture of the broken surface will feel powdery, demonstrating that the material is made of smaller materials or grans. However, unless it is dropped or hit with something it isn't going to break. Porcelain is a material that doesn't ware away or in anyway disintegrate. These are known for being a high quality cake topper. Why?
  • Porcelain lasts longer. The color and shape won't fade or distort (unless you drop it and it breaks!)
Like most things, there are some disadvantages to Porcelain cake toppers as well.
  • The major disadvantage is that is can't hold edges very well. What this means is that if the edge or detail is too thin, it will collapse on itself. If you have a porcelain cake topper, you do not need to worry about this happening. This would only occur while making the figurine, meaning that it limits the kind of details you are going to find in the cake topper.
  • Expensive Material. High quality porcelain cake toppers do tend to be more expensive, but not necessarily out of budget. If you are looking for a long lasting keepsake, porcelain is well worth the money!
Resin  Resin cake toppers Resin or Stone Resin is an increasingly popular material for wedding cake toppers and figurines. Why?
  • Resin can be intricately detailed, meaning that your cake topper can have more detail.
  • It can be cheaper than porcelain, but still maintain a similar look.* (See exemption in Cons below!)
Some Cons for Resin cake toppers
  • Resin actually yellows over time, so if you buy a resin cake topper you may find the white to be looking a little less...white. If you display it in an area that has a lot of sun, your cake topper will easily be yellowed within a year. Whether it sits in the sun or not, it will yellow, the sun just speeds up the process.This is why if you plan on your cake topper being a keep sake that you will have around for a lifetime or more, you may want to look at something other then Resin.
  • The cost is increasing! Resin is most basically a high grade plastic. For a long time this meant that the cake toppers could be made at a lower cost, but the cost of this material is going up. Making the cost difference between Resin and Porcelain to not be so much of a difference.
You will find wedding cake toppers made of both materials because you can get a high quality cake toppers with each. Whether one is better than the other will depend on what you want to focus on. If you are looking for a top of the heap porcelain cake topper, Lenox is known for producing high quality porcelain.

Cake Decorating Ideas That Are Meant to Help Brides Weddings come in all shapes and sizes, as do the pieces that build them up: centerpieces, wedding dresses, favors, and wedding cakes. The wedding cake, being one of the those must items, can be done in so many different ways and it can sometimes be hard to sort through all of the cake decorating ideas. An important thing to remember is that they are ideas, suggestions, and simply possibilities and not really rules. Of course, the cake decorating ideas that you are likely to encounter are going to be based on both tradition and the way cakes have been decorated in the past and on ways in which you can push on those traditions. As you sort through these decoration ideas, you can pick and choose between traditional and non-traditional designs. Some brides prefer pulling from the more traditional wedding cake decorating ideas because it can be a more sentimental route. However, adhering to a tradition does not mean it has to be in a traditional way. For example, wedding cake toppers are a traditional aspect of wedding cake decorations -that bride and groom at the top of the cake have been there since before you were born- but that doesn't mean you can't put a fun twist to the design.

Other Areas of Cake Decorating to Consider Along with using unique wedding cake toppers you should take a look at mixing up the wedding cake shape, colors, and even the cake-y-ness.
  • You have choices in the shape of your cake from its height to its form. Will you choose a round cake or square? Or will you go way out of the box and create your own shape? Will you have three tiers or two? Or Will you use cupcakes?
  • Another area people are branching out are in the color of their cake. Typically, people choose a white frosted cake as its base color, but why not mix it up?
  • Do you need cake? Some couples are pushing through this tradition by using pies and other desert options in place of the traditional wedding cake. Keep in mind that choosing pies would limit your decorating options (though there are some great "Monogram" cake toppers that are great for wedding pies!)
