A monogram is a design made up of one or more letters, usually the initials from someone’s name. Monogram cake toppers are becoming increasingly popular at wedding events. The are pieces that sit atop the cake on display, usually initials that signify some trait of the bride and groom. Before choosing whether to incorporate these into your wedding cake and how, here are some things you should consider.
Formal or Contemporary Monogram Cake Toppers
You can get really fancy when it comes to monogram cake toppers. The two most common lettering styles are formal and contemporary.
Formal style is usually synonymous with calligraphic or script letters. Formal styled toppers are a little more feminine and lean towards the style of the bride. They are elegant and fancy.
Contemporary style cake decors are modern and less fancy in their styling. They are easier to read and can contain elements of formal styled monogram cake toppers, such as a curl at the end of the letters without the letters themselves being in script, formal style. The contemporary type will most likely be ideal for representing both the bride and groom on the cake.
Make a decision to either purchase a formal style or a contemporary style cake topper based on you and/or the groom’s personal style.
Letters to Use-Creative Ideas
The next decision to ponder is which letters you want to top your cake, why, and how many there will be.
Basically, these will be composed of either the first letter of the couple’s new common last name or the first initials of both the bride and groom’s first names. Everyone at the wedding should be able to figure that out.
But what about something a little more innovative. Maybe you could include the initials of the first day you met. N199 could stand for November 1, 1999 for example. Your guests will probably ask you the significance of the letters, and you can use it as a conversation starter.
Or maybe the initials represent an inside joke that only you and your hubby are privvy to. In that case you could just leave the initials on your monogram cake toppers a secret.
Color and Accents
