If you’ve ever come across a bobblehead, you’ll likely have seen them resting atop a vehicle dashboard, nodding away at the sizzling heat. However, custom bobbleheads are far beyond the Play-Doh-and-felt level of dirt-cheap souvenirs, and more reminiscent of high-quality caricatures. If you haven’t yet settled on a cake topper for The Big Day, a bride and groom bobblehead can make for an unexpected element that will surely draw some laughs.
Take Tradition to the Next Level
Bride and groom figurines are a tired wedding cake topper. Made with wood, wax, porcelain, or even icing sugar, store-bought toppers are hardly a memento you’ll want to display on your fireplace mantle. Sticking to tradition doesn’t mean doing without a design upgrade. Bobbleheads are just as playful a representation of the bride and groom—only they look far better.
Stick to a Theme
Have you already settled on a wedding theme? If so, your cake topper should be just as thematic. Dress your rustic-themed bobbleheads in earth tones or, if you’re digging the real-life-fairy-tale shtick, adorn them in something ethereal—hint: wings!
Reflect Your Relationship
Your custom bobbleheads shouldn’t just look like you, but feel like you. Don’t be afraid to go into detail. Feel free to customise clothing. Do you have a favourite cap or pair of shoes? Dress your bobblehead in them. Accessorise your topper with your favourite object, be it an acoustic guitar or life-sized Transformer. Share a pet? Throw them in as well! A creative way to express your personality, bobbleheads are not shy and more than ready to take centre stage.
Keep Them Forever
If you’re spending a pretty penny on your custom bobblehead, why hold back? A cake topper makes for a generations-long keepsake. A bobblehead is even better. You can display them pretty much anywhere, from your bedside table to your front hallway as a wedding remembrance. Avoid letting your bobblehead lurk where your partner won’t expect to see them—nothing is a bigger bummer than a shattered wedding souvenir!
Send Them Out as Gifts
A custom bobblehead can send guests away with something to remember The Big Day by. Some suppliers will save you on costs by offering a wholesale price and even throw in a few elements for free. If a mini-me of you and your partner is a little too creepy for your liking, you can go the extra mile and design a bobblehead of each guest.
Over the years, wedding traditions have evolved tremendously. From digital invitations to elaborate same-day edits and unusual wedding loot bags to untraditional gowns, there’s no reason you shouldn’t push the envelope. Whether a fan of the spotlight or not, your wedding is about you—and if a bobblehead is on your list of to-dos, who is anyone to stop you?
