Obviously wedding season is still going strong, at least it is here at The Beaded Cork! This week alone, we’ve had three custom cake topper orders in two days. And inquiries for several more.
Every bride has her own ideas for what she wants on top of her wedding cake. Sometimes the groom even gets a say in it, although in our experience, the bride usually has the final word….if she even consults the groom!
Maybe that’s why groom’s cakes are being so much more popular at today’s weddings. But more on that another time!
With beach themed weddings so popular these days, and since we’re located in a beach area, naturally we’ve done several beach-themed cake toppers. Starfish are really popular these days, both for reception table décor as well as cake toppers. In fact, we hadn’t even thought about doing anything with starfish until a local baker asked if we could make a starfish bridal couple for a client she was working with. So we created our first Mr. and Mrs. Starfish!
They were so popular we ended up making several more, including a special order for a Florida couple who wanted their son, who was going to be the ring bearer, incorporated into the cake top display.
That was fun, and gave us ideas to create other starfish couples! What do you think of these?
But our favorite cake toppers are still our champagne cork couples. Winery themed weddings are also very popular now, and with the state of Virginia (where we’re located) having over 200 wineries, well, our champagne wedding cake couples certainly have a lot of places they can visit! Of course, not all wine themed weddings have to take place at a winery.
We like to have our starfish couples a bit glitzy, after all it IS a wedding! And most of our champagne cork brides and grooms are also elegantly dressed, as you can see here.
However, who said champagne can’t be enjoyed on the beach? So we created some beachy cork couples and dressed them in more casual wedding attire and surrounded them with shells.
As you may have read in previous installments, our daughter is recently engaged, and planning a beach themed wedding. With starfish.
And although she’s already picked out her cake topper, wouldn’t some of these look great as part of the table decorations?
