How can you select a butterfly cake topper and how can you make sure yours fits your wedding reception? What are your choices and options and what should you remember when shopping? Consider a few quick tips in this regard.

Size of the Topper

Believe it or not, the size of your butterfly cake topper will be important, in relation to your cake. A very large cake needs a large topper or some additional decorations and elements around it. This is because if it's not large enough, it will get lost in the cake itself.

On the other hand, you may have your heart set on a very large and ornate butterfly cake topper but if your cake is somewhat smaller, it may overpower it and seem out of place. Be sure you keep the size of your cake in mind when ordering and make sure everything is in proportion.

Added Elements

Even unique wedding cake toppers need added elements in order to really stand out and look as elegant as they should. If you study photographs of your choices for a butterfly cake topper you may see that they often have added flowers, ribbons, crystals, and other such elements in order to make them seem elegant and chic.

These added elements can dress up a small topper and can also make it seem coordinated and complementary to your cake and your reception overall. Think of silk flowers and even colored gemstones. Many even wrap a ribbon around the middle or top layer of a cake, and this can really add emphasis to your butterfly cake topper. Just be sure to shop early and don't settle for the first one you see, since you have so many options.

Remember too that butterflies don't just fly away like birds; they may flit around and even land on a guest or two. This is why you don't need that many when you order; you don't want your guests to be startled by the number of butterflies that surround them!
