Topping off your decadent dessert with a silhouette is the perfect finishing touch. It’s a great alternative to the traditional cake toppers and still remains elegant and absolutely adorable. These classy little mono-hued figures dress up any cake, whether it’s a single layered confection or a tiered masterpiece. These silhouettes can also be adorable if you opted for the popular cupcake display. Top each little cake with a heart silhouette or maybe even a ring! The options are endless.
Give your guests a sneak peak of the theme of the nuptials with chic silhouette invitations. I love this Vintage Silhouettes – Invitation that is simple, yet elegant and is perfect for a more formal occasion. There are also silhouettes for a casual affair. Some couples choose to have a silhouette in fun poses like holding hands or kissing each other playfully on the cheek.
Dress up the chairs
To add a special touch to you and your groom’s chair at the reception, why not hang some silhouettes of the two of you on the back of your chairs? This idea from Occasions Online is also extremely versatile and can easily be molded to fit the feel and theme of any wedding. Choose your own background colors and fonts to add a personal touch to the decor.
Send your guests home with a silhouette of their own! Some brides have gone as far as having a silhouette artist at their wedding to do custom designs – giving your guests the perfect personalized favor. If your budget doesn’t allow for this, how about creating favor bags with a silhouette of you and your groom printed on them? It’s a great way to serve as a special reminder of the nuptials. Fill the bag with items of your choice like candy, coffee or potpourri!
