Vintage styled weddings are becoming more popular, and it is easy to see why when you look at photographs of real vintage weddings. Each is uniquely styled and elegant so if you are planning a vintage themed wedding, it is important to make sure the vintage theme extends through every little detail, including your wedding cake topper.
Luckily with the popularisation of the Internet and social media, you can find inspiration at the click of a mouse. Here are our top suggestions for a vintage themed wedding cake topper that not only will look stylish but be affordable too.
For a true vintage wedding cake topper, the first place to look is in antiques or second hand stores and websites. Wedding cake toppers became more common in the 1950s, so what better way to embrace a vintage theme than with an authentic vintage cake topper. These styles generally include a bride and groom in a traditional pose and can be very reasonable in cost.
Vintage themed bunting
For something a little different, the bunting styled wedding cake topper can look quirky and very vintage. Think summer fetes and street parties. Bunting styled wedding cake toppers can be plain, multi-coloured or display text such as “Just Married” or “Mr and Mrs.”
Many vintage themed weddings include bird cages and doves so why not continue this theme through to your wedding cake. Doves have many meanings when it comes to weddings including purity, peace and fidelity, as they mate for life. We can’t think of a better reason to use them in your wedding cake topper!
For a truly unique vintage wedding cake topper that is also affordable and guarantees to grab attention, why not use an old, small black and white photograph of your parents or grandparents wedding. Pop this in an ornate frame for a meaningful vintage cake topper.
The addition of a floral teacup whether empty or filled with flowers can make an extremely vintage looking cake topper. If you are having mismatched China during your wedding reception, you can tie-in the theme by using a teacup as a cake topper.
One thing to watch with unusual wedding cake toppers is their weight. Always check with the person in charge of baking and decorating your cake to ensure that they have the right tools and techniques to support the weight of your chosen wedding cake topper. The last thing you want is for it to sink the top tier of your wedding cake!
