“I Do" a publication about wedding cake toppers from arround the world.
The wedding cake topper was dominant in United States weddings in the 1950s where it represented togetherness.Today, these decorative figurines are often part of the couple’s decorative theme or wedding reception style.
While traditionally the bride and groom were
in formal atire, with the bride in a long white
wedding dress, complete with veil, and the groom in black morning dress, today there are many more designs available. There are specific ones for the style and theme of the wedding, for instance, traditional toppers for a formal wedding, and
for less formal ones, there are comical wedding cake toppers or ones depending on the couple’s hobbies.
In recent times, wedding cake toppers have
reflected the growing diversity in marriages.
Multi-ethnic wedding toppers are now available, as are same-sex wedding toppers.
Wedding toppers have come a long way from those used generations ago. Today’s couples demand
realism. Poses have become more natural, faces and gowns look less stiff and a more romantic attitude rules the day.
