Add a Personal Touch with Unique Wedding Cake Toppers

One of the most common questions asked by brides and grooms when planning their wedding is "How can we make our wedding unique?” If you want to make your wedding memorable rather than just like everyone else's wedding, you just need to personalize it! Most guests won’t remember their chicken cordon bleu, but they will remember the personal touches that make your wedding distinct.

The ceremonial cutting of the wedding cake is always a highlight of the reception, and you can make this moment even more special with a wedding cake topper that reflects the bride and groom’s personal look and style.

Here are some great ideas for adding a more personal touch to your wedding cake:

Share your interests as a couple:
There are many wedding cake toppers available with themes that can display a common interest that you have as a couple, including sports themes such as baseball, hockey, fishing, skiing, football, golf, soccer, motorcycles and more!

Share how you met:
Many couples have a romantic or fun story of how they met. Maybe you met at a baseball game or at a Western bar? Why not use a baseball themed or western themed wedding cake topper? Did you meet at the beach? Choose a barefoot couple lounging on the sand beach theme cake topper. There is a wide range of wedding cake toppers that cater to many different scenarios.

Embrace your Heritage:
We’re not all blonde haired and blue eyed, so why should your cake topper look that way? We have many ethnic and culturally diverse bride and groom cake toppers now available to depict you and your husband or wife exactly the way you want to be portrayed.

Add some fun with Comical or Novelty Wedding Cake Toppers:
Liven up your wedding cake with a comical cake topper that pokes fun at yourselves. Obsessed with technology? Go with a couple talking on cell phones! Were you dating a long time before the wedding? Choose a funny cake topper with the bride dragging the groom to the altar. Whatever you choose, remember it’s all in good fun!

Mix and Match:
Not every couple is exactly alike. Wedding cake toppers sold as a couple generally are not suitable for most couples. With mix and match figurines you customize the look of your wedding cake topper to create a custom pairing that reflects your unique ethnic blend or pairing. Some options for you to create include curvy brides, burly grooms and multi-racial couples.

Traditional cake toppers aren’t always suitable for every wedding. Many more brides are opting for something different from the traditional bride and groom cake topper. Some couples tying the knot choose an expecting bride figurine, or for a personal touch, monogram cake toppers with the first initials of the bride and groom’s names. Many cake toppers also feature animal couples such as a pair of doves. Or you could go for a modern sculpture to top your cake.

Wedding cake toppers aren’t just for cakes. They can go on top of cupcake towers or serve as the perfect decoration for your guestbook table! Regardless of where your wedding cake topper goes, it will be sure to infuse your special day with distinctive personality, and serve as a wonderful memento of your wedding for many years to come.

Choose wedding vows for your wedding

Wedding vows are the promises that couples make to one another in the witness of God, before they enter into life long commitment with each other. They have different ways in different cultures around the globe but hold the same essence at its core.

For an example, marriage vows are the central part of the time honored and solemn traditional practice. They are the heart of the sacrament of marriage and come as the final part of the ceremony. It’s the exchange of vows that makes a wedding official. Some choose to write their own one or get the traditional one supplied from the church. Doesn’t matter what ever be the choice a certain format is followed to ensure that whatever is necessary is said.

Choice of memorizing Wedding Vows

After deciding which form of verse to choose, next one can also think about whether to memorize the verses or to repeat it after the priest. The advantage of memorizing not only gives a richer symbol to the marriage but also in the saying the words makes one realize the deeper meaning of words of the verses, to understand depth, sanity, spiritual unbreakable bond that the institution of marriage holds.

If some one is not confident about to recall the wedding Vows correctly then the priest will say the verses and ask the couple to repeat it word by word though the Rite of Marriage actually does not suggest this.

Most couples decide to have a Wedding Songs or instrumental piece after the wedding Vows to add emphasis to the declaration of consent, though many liturgical strongly advise against it as it disturbs the flow and momentum of the entire rite of marriage. But a short and joyful musical acclamation is welcome.

Incorporating the Unity Sand Ceremony into Your Wedding

The Unity Candle Ceremony is a part of many weddings, that symbolizes the couple's shared commitment to uniting their lives. The unity sand ceremony is a variation of this traditional ceremony, but instead of using a unity candle, flowing sand becomes the symbol of unification. The Unity Sand Ceremony has skyrocketed in popularity after it was performed during the 2004 wedding of The Bachelorette star Trista Rhen and Ryan Sutter.

A beach wedding is the perfect setting for the Unity Sand Ceremony, however more couples are opting to include the unity sand ceremony as part of traditional church wedding ceremonies. If you would like to include in a church ceremony, it's important to check with your place of worship to ensure that the Unity Sand ceremony can be incorporated into wedding vows.

1) The Groom will commence by pouring a portion of his into the central glass vase.

2) The Bride will follow by pouring a portion of her also into the central vase creating a layered effect.

3) To complete the ceremony, the Groom and Bride simultaneously pour the balance of their sand into the central container.

4) Following the wedding, the accessory vases can be used to display fresh flowers while the central vase will remain a cherished keepsake of your wedding day.

The Wedding Superstore carries a couple of different designs for Unity Sand Ceremony Sets: The Unity Sand Ceremony Nesting 3 Piece Vase Set and the Heart Shaped Unity Sand Set. The sets can be personalized with names and a date or initials. Each set includes accessory or nesting vases that allow children to be invited to take part in the Blended Family Unity Sand Ceremony. There are a variety of Unity Sand colors to choose from, that will coordinate with your wedding.
