If you are getting married on or near Halloween
If you are getting married on or near Halloween, there is a good chance that you have decided to incorporate the holiday into your wedding. While some brides opt for a Halloween wedding cake, some instead choose a traditional cake and then choose from the many available Halloween wedding cake toppers.
Because Halloween is a holiday that has grown in overall popularity over the last twenty years, and because more and more couples are choosing to get married on or near this day, there are plenty of Halloween wedding cake toppers from which to choose.
While the selection is likely to be somewhat limited in bridal salons, you will find a very good selection of Halloween wedding cake toppers at online bridal retailers, some of which even specialize in items for a Halloween themed wedding.
Some of the available toppers will be spooky. One features an ornately detailed haunted house, complete with a skeleton bride and groom peeking out from one of the windows.
Other toppers stick to the darker side of Halloween
Other toppers stick to the darker side of Halloween, but do so in a more cartoonish way. For example, one of the Halloween wedding cake toppers that can be found at an online retailer features a very friendly looking bride and groom ghost couple.
Another popular trend in Halloween wedding cake toppers is using licensed figures from popular movies. One of the most obvious and popular is a cake topper that features the bride and groom (Jack and Sally) from the movie The Nightmare Before Christmas. There are many variations of Halloween wedding cake toppers that borrow from this popular film.
Of course, not all Halloween wedding cake toppers have to be spooky or give a nod to the dark elements of Halloween. One wedding cake topper that is perfect for Halloween features the couple’s monogram in orange letters set on a black base.
Another idea for a wedding that falls near Halloween
Another idea for a wedding that falls near Halloween is to have a small pumpkin surrounded by fall flowers as your cake topper. This is something that you could put together yourself, or you could have a florist do it.
To use the idea above, but with a dark twist, substitute a menacing looking jack-o-lantern for the pumpkin.
There are so many Halloween wedding cake toppers available that you might have a hard time choosing. Some are ornate, while others are quite simple. Many are scary – some are even grotesque – while others pay homage to the holiday in a way that is not spooky or dark.
If you cannot find a Halloween wedding cake topper
If you cannot find a Halloween wedding cake topper that you like, you will be able to make one fairly easily. Simply place any Halloween figure that you like on a dark base and you will have appropriate cake toppers.
Of course, flowers in shades of orange and red, with black ribbon for embellishment, can serve as a perfect Halloween cake topper.
If you want a traditional (not scary) cake for your wedding, but still feel drawn to the darker side of Halloween, consider having a groom’s cake that is quite spooky while letting your wedding cake be more traditional.
You will be able to easily find Halloween wedding cake toppers that are appropriate for both cakes, and your Halloween wedding will be complete.
