Another story surrounding the wedding cake is the bride’s cake or bride’s pie. The baker would bake a glass ring inside and the first single female that found it at the reception would be the next to wed. This is similar to the bouquet toss but messier. J
The cakes are white to symbolize purity, childhood innocence and the purity of the heart. Today cakes are white or full color, it is up to the bride and groom!
Wedding cake toppers fist began in the late 19th century which featured a bride and groom in traditional poses. They were considered ornaments and were saved as treasured mementos of the wedding ceremony. They are considered to be the symbol of the love, bond and togetherness the bride and groom share.
Wedding cake toppers have come along way since the 1890s. In the late 1920s, Sears came out with their first line of wedding ornaments (cake toppers) in their catalog. In the 1900s symbols such as silver bells, love birds, doves, cherubs, cupids, etc became widely acceptable as wedding cake toppers.
