Sparkling or simple, monogram wedding cake toppers - in fact monogramming just about everything - are the hottest new trends in wedding personalization.
Initial cake toppers usually comprise of three letters. The first one is the initial of the bride’s first name, the center is the initial of the married surname and the third letter is the initial of the groom’s first name.
Another variation is just one letter – the initial of the married surname.
But what if you don’t plan to take your groom’s surname?
Simple, neither of the above options is suitable for your situation. Instead, choose just the first initials of both the bride and groom - bride’s initial first – with an ampersand (&) between.
This is a very clean, ultra modern look and the perfect solution when you are not changing your surname.
Cake toppers are frequently constructed of a solid brushed metal or acrylic with cake picks attached. The picks would either be on the bottom of the design so the topper stands up or on the back of the letter so the initial is pushed into the side of the cake. The latter is more commonly referred to as cake jewelry which is additional embellishments to add distinction to the cake.
This elegant monogram cake topper is plated with sterling silver or 14k gold and then finished with genuine Swarovski rhinestone components. Topper includes 1 larger center letter and two smaller letters. The large center letter measures 4 1/2 - 5" tall. The two smaller letters to the left and right measure 3" tall. With the increasing popularity of initial cake toppers, manufacturers have responded with more options. From simple to elaborate, in a variety of colors, with and without crystals and bling you will be dazzled by choices.
Be sure to choose a topper that is in keeping with the theme of your wedding and size and style of your cake. If you have a small 2-tier cake for 40 people, ensure your 9” three initial cake topper doesn’t overpower.
After your wedding you can have the cake picks removed for show in a china cabinet. Or have a display stand designed and made for you that will allow you to keep the topper intact and re-use for anniversaries to come.
You may end up spending thousands of dollars on your wedding day for things that you’ll never see or use again. Your cake topper is one of few items that will last a lifetime. If spending a couple hundred dollars on this special keepsake is within your budget, Swarovski crystal monogram wedding cake toppers may be the perfect choice.
