Monogram Wedding

Instead of the traditional bride and groom, you may want to use a monogram wedding cake topper. Although the idea sounds sound enough, do not think you will have an easy time making a choice. Just because you are only using an initial does not mean you will only have one design from which to choose. It is not as simple as just finding one initial—you will find many different designs and ways to present your monogram on your wedding cake. In addition to styles, there are also different colors from which you have to choose. Thus if you are thinking of a monogram wedding cake topper in order to make the selection process easier it isn’t going to happen.

Monogram Toppers Come in a Variety of Sizes

When you begin looking at monogram wedding cake toppers, you will find they come in a variety of sizes. You will need to decide how you want your wedding cake to look once you place the monogram on top. The size of your wedding cake will give you guidance as far as the size of the monogram wedding cake topper you choose—you do not want something that is going to look out of place by being too large or too small. You want your wedding cake topper to enhance and beautiful your wedding cake, not overwhelm it. Do not attempt to choose your monogram wedding topper before you know the size of your cake or you will not be able to choose the right size. The baker can provide the guidance on that for you.

Choose the Lettering You Want

Although we usually think of a monogram as just one letter, customarily the first letter of the surname, most vendors will provide monogram wedding cake toppers up to three letters. If you choose three letters, the best choice would be the first letter of the first name of the bride and groom. This again depends on the size of the top layer of the cake, which is always the smallest one. You have more options if you have a sheet cake but that is usually for very small weddings.
