Love is in the Air: Using Heart Symbolism

 Love is in the Air <3

The heart shape being associated and used to represent love -more particularly romantic love- starting in the 15th century and became popular by the 16th century. Now the concept of love and deep emotion cannot really be separated from the heart shape. The heart is the symbol of love. Wedding Collectibles Double Heart Cake Top With weddings being all about love, it is more than likely that a heart or two will show up in your wedding decor and accessories. Using heart symbols at your wedding is an effortless way to bring in romance, butterfly feelings, and googly-eye gazing into your wedding. My Love Stylized Heart Cake Topper With your wedding cake topper being at one of the keystones of wedding traditions, a heart cake topper can be a perfect way to showcase that heart symbolism. The above cake toppers both feature ceramic hearts, but say forever in different ways. The first, "Double Heart Cake Top" features two hearts that almost seem to meld together at their foundation and stand together side by side. This can be representative of the two hearts being united, and becoming one - if not in entity, then in foundation or purpose. The second, "My Love Stylized Heart Cake Topper", features a single heart but with knotted at its base. The knot, like the heart, is a long time symbol of love and marriage, but it is more specifically a symbol of trust, unity, and strength. While their variations are slight, each will help create a tone that will be unique to your wedding. Wedding Collectibles Interlocking Heart Flutes Other wedding accessories such as toasting glasses, guest books, candle holders, and wedding cake serving sets are opportunities to add that little heart touch and take advantage of the symbolism that comes with the heart. Wedding Collectibles Crystal Heart Ribbon Wedding Guestbook and Pen Set One of the great things about using a heart theme or heart decor is that you really are not restricted to pinks and reds. The rosier tones may be expected, but that may even be to your advantage and make your wedding stand out when you use a hearts theme without the typical heart colors.

Say "I Do" Everyday Forever

 Say "I Do" Everyday Forever

Marriage is a commitment. Whether you see it as death till you part or for time and all eternity, marriage is a commitment of love, loyalty, sacrifice, forgiveness, compassion, and trust. While the wedding day is a huge and special event (as it creates a huge industry of wedding products and services), it is only the beginning. This realization is something many new brides relish in theory. It adds to the lofty romance. However, it creates a different kind of romance for couples that have been married for 15,25, and 50 years. Once you have been together for that long, and have lived that commitment, marriage and the promise of marriage takes a new meaning. Couples should never stop realizing how much they love each other and should never stop celebrating the life they have together. That is why Wedding Collectibles provides beautiful products for not only soon-to-be brides, but also for wedding anniversaries for those couples that are choosing to celebrate their love once again.

Musts for a Beach Themed Wedding

 

 Musts for a Beach Themed WeddingWhy a Beach Wedding is an Affordable Option

Summer is just around the corner, and if you are living in sunny California, it may even feel like summer now! If you are newly engaged and planning for a Summer wedding, you may be considering a romantic wedding on the beach. Even though the beach wedding style is often considered laid back and relaxed, there is still a lot of planning and careful touches from how to do your hair for that beach humidity to keeping those centerpieces from looking like a tourist shop ( unless that is the way you want to go!) that you will need to pay attention too. Here are some items to help you keep your beach wedding theme cohesive, classy, and full of that summer love'n! 1. Lets start with you!

Wedding Collectibles - Aqua Bead Foot Jewelry

When a lot of brides dream up a beach wedding they think of effortless curls, soft flowing bridal gowns, and their bare feet in the sand. Now, think back to the last time you were at the beach. What did you feet look like at the end of the day?? Not exactly the cleanest look? There are three things we would like to suggest for your barefoot wedding plans. First, get a a pedicure! Might as well start with your absolute best foot forward and start off with clean, manicured toes. Second, have wet wipes available . This way after the ceremony and before your reception you can wipe down your feet. This would be particularly important if you do not have a lot of time in-between the ceremony and reception.IMPORTANT: Don't wipe you feet down and then stick them directly back into the sand: You need to wait till they are completely dry again or else you will just have sand stuck to your feet! And lastly, bare feet does not necessarily mean you feet must be 100% bare. In other words, accessorize with some bling! Foot jewelry works wonderfully with a beach themed wedding because it adds to that easy beauty and almost bohemian tone that the soft waves and sand invite. The foot jewelry pictured above, our "Pearl and Rhinestone", or our "Shell" foot jewelry would be a perfect addition to your beach wedding. 2. For the Ceremony: Wedding Collectibles - Beautiful Mother of Pearl Shell Ring Pillow You won't need too much beach decor if you are having your wedding ceremony at the beach because ....welll...what more do you need than the rolling waves, soft sands, and sunset in the background? What you can do is use beach themed items for the ceremony. For example you can have sea shells or smooth rocks line your aisle way instead of flower petals and starfish will always add a unique and romantic touch. Also, you can add a seaside touch to the traditional items in a ceremony such as the ring bearer pillow, the unity candle, or for the sand pouring. 3. At the Reception: Wedding Collectibles - Tropical Breeze Cake Topper There are going to be a lot of ways to incorporate your seaside wedding theme at your wedding reception, but one that you really cant skip on is the wedding cake and wedding cake topper. If you have a beach theme running throughout and then you have a plain Jane wedding cake with a traditional wedding cake topper it will have the similar look as if someone wore a business suit to go to enjoy the beach. Plus, a beach theme provides you with a fun opportunity to get creative with your wedding cake topper.

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.

Summer is one of the funnest seasons in that it is a perfect dating season and generates ideas and the option to go to fun theme parks, circuses, to go see fireworks, on boat rides, hiking, fishing, camping, and all sorts of outdoor activities that either end or begin with you holding hands. Each of these summer activities can inspire unique wedding themes; For example, the circus or perhaps a festival with carnival like games can translate wonderfully into a creative and active wedding reception. Playful cake toppers like the wedding cake topper of a bride and groom cuddled lounging in the sand is perfect addition to a summer wedding because it acts a a cut out of what those long summer days and nights entail: Fun, romance, and dreaming of forever.

Willow Tree ® "Promise" Wedding Cake Topper Figurine Blustery Days Season Fall can sometimes be a season that gets skipped over as an in between season that just acts as a separator between the summer sun and winter snow and rain, but it is such a beautiful season that it deserves to have its day: Your wedding day! Fall is a season of warm, rich, and vibrant color schemes. You can use reds, purples, oranges and any other color that a green leaf turns into at the season change. The Willow Tree cake topper is an absolute perfect choice for a fall wedding cake topper. It's earth tones and simple carving creates a tone that just says fall. This would work with vintage, country, shabby chic, storybook, and fairy tale wedding themes.

Winter often equals cuddling close, mistletoe kisses, and whispering I love you along side the soft fall of snow.

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.

As the motto of this cake topper indicates, this cake topper is representative of love that lasts through thick and thin to only get stronger throughout the eternities of time. There really is a sweetness that comes with Willow Tree figurines. Part of what makes them wonderful is the absence of facial features because it makes it so you can find yourself seamlessly in the figures.

Willow Tree ® Lesbian Gay Wedding Cake Topper Figurine

While Willow Tree calls the above cake topper "My Sister, My Friend", we have found that it can work wonderfully as a same sex lesbian wedding cake topper.

Calla Lily Weddings: Full of Beauty, Elegance, and Individuality.

Calla Lily Weddings: Full of Beauty, Elegance, and Individuality. 

The white Calla Lily is a wonderful choice for the center stage position of a floral themed wedding. It is most interestingly misnamed since it is technically not a Calla and also not a Lily. This fact may speak to some brides or grooms that have found themselves categorized or named. What is more, is that you can consider the Calla Lily as a symbol of the love you have being so great that it is undefinable. The white Calla Lily is also a symbol for magnificent beauty and innocence. Used in a bridal bouquet it can emphasize the brides innocence, beauty, and purity. Furthermore, the Calla Lily is often associated with the religious symbolism  of Jesus's resurrection since the flower is shaped like trumpets making it the perfect flower choice for the religiously centered wedding. The Calla Lily's stately elegance and extensive symbolism, makes it a perfect addition or focal point for any wedding type. If you are having a floral themed wedding or if you would like to take advantage for the symbolism of the Calla Lily, you will (just as we said with the daisy themed wedding) of course want to have more than just the Calla Lily in your bouquet and there are a ton of fun ways to incorporate this flower in your wedding decor.

"Lily" Ring Bearer Pillow - 38 Colors Available!

Include it in the details of the ceremony. The above ring bearer pillow is not necessarily patterned off of the calla lily, but is rather designed after the lily flower. This allows for you to have some variation is your floral accents, but also keep similar themes, tones, and symbolism. This would work particularly well if your wedding theme is floral because it would be a clever way to hint towards your main flower, while also having a floral accent in the wedding that is not a literal flower. Other details that the Calla Lily can easily be present in is the unity candle  and flower girl basket.

"Love's Embrace" Cake Top

Next, Take it to the reception! Try starting with a Calla Lily Cake Topper. We like the one above because its smooth and enveloping design seems to match the elegance and shape of the Calla Lily. You can also try using a Calla Lily accented cake topper base and then pair is with any cake topper to match your wedding theme. For example, if you are doing a religiously themed wedding you could pair the "Calla Lily DIY Cake Topper Base" with the beautiful "Love Verse Bible with Doves and Flower Accents Wedding Cake Topper".

Calla Lily Guest Book

The, the guest book may not get a ton of attention, but it is a great way to implement the Calla Lily in the small details and helps not create an overbearing look. You can also look for Calla Lily designed cake serving sets, champagne flutes, and centerpieces.

No matter how you choose to incorporate the Calla Lily, it is sure to be an elegant and beautiful addition to your magical day.

A Unique Cake Topper that Will Light Up Your Wedding

 

A Unique Cake Topper that Will Light Up Your Wedding

Vintage Round Light-Up Wedding Cake Topper

I used to always wonder exactly how glass cake toppers worked. Of course, there is the assumption that they work like any other, but then they light up, and I would get really confused. The etched glass light up cake toppers here at wedding collectibles are bade with a base that can be molded into the top tier of the wedding cake making the base invisible. Basically, all you would do on the wedding day is flip the switch that is in the slot  where the glass fits and then put the glass piece in, and wallah! You have a beautiful glass cake topper lit in the color of your choice that looks as if it is floating atop your cake.  We like the cake topper featured above because its round cut and vintage design offers a softness that adds elegance and romance to any wedding. Then, the light up feature gives the design a new edge that hints a contemporary vibe keeping your wedding classy and up to date. 

 

Open Heart Light-Up Wedding Cake Topper

Wedding collectibles offers so many different designs within the etched glass category to go with just about any theme. The above "Open Heart" cake topper will work universally with just about any wedding theme, but there are light up glass cake toppers that fit perfectly with beach, religious, fantasy, vintage, country, or seasonal. These cake toppers really are a unique option for that bride looking to have something different, something special, to make her wedding perfect. What is more is that these cake toppers a personalizeable and easily becomes a family heirloom. 

Beach Wedding Acrylic Heart Starfish Cake Topper

If you are not a fan of the light up feature, but you like the look of the etched glass, you have two (really more than that, but we are going to talk about two), options. The first is to simply not turn on the the light up feature. This is the route you want to go if you have your heart set on a cake topper designed to light up. The second is to take a peek at the etched glass cake toppers that we offer without the light up feature. Both create that effortless look that will melt into any wedding theme and design.

How to Keep it Classy When Using a Sporty Cake Topper

How to Keep it Classy When Using a Sporty Cake Topper

Heidi and Kevin Wedding - Laura Shepard Photography A newly married bride, Heidi, met her husband on the basketball courts of her college gym. She was in gym shorts, a quick ponytail, and was a force to be noticed. And she was noticed by an equally sweaty and probably smellier Kevin. They flirted (smack talked), then dated (Heidi wore here hair down), and were attracted to each others athletic, spunky, and kind (good sport) attitude. When planning their wedding they wanted to implement that basketball game meeting. Before their guest arrived, they "played" a little one on one and "shot hoops". Heidi in her wedding dress and Kevin in his suit. Heidi also decided to wear cute tennis shoes as her wedding shoes at her reception and put Kevin in matching shoes in order to bring in the sporty and fun personality of their relationship. Heidi and Kevin had a beautiful wedding and a equally lovely reception, but were able to include their sporty (and possibly more frizz haired and smelly) side.  Another simple way to do this is to include a fun, sporty cake topper. This is a small element, but will be center stage on top of your wedding cake.

Basketball Dream Team Bride and Groom Couple Figurine

What we love about this cake topper is that it plays on that sweet flirtation the lives the strongest at the start of the best romances. It is a cliched move for a guy to "show" a girl how to do things like bowl, golf, shoot a hoop, as an excuse to get closer together. Choosing a cake topper like this is an inspiration and a promise to always make excuses to be close together. This would a be a tasteful addition to help you add a little fun to your wedding decor without sacrificing the class of that traditional bride and groom cake topper.
