No wedding would be complete without a wedding cake, and many couples still love to adorn their wedding cake with toppers. While there’s no doubt about the fact that these cake toppers can come in all shapes and sizes, some people choose figures that represent themselves. However, that doesn’t mean that you have to. In fact, you can now buy a wedding cake topper that features Slash’s real hair if you wanted to…
The Ultimate Topper
When planning their wedding, many couples put a lot of time and effort into their wedding cake. They decide on the flavors, they decide on the outward appearance, and they decide on the cake toppers that they would like to choose. These toppers normally stay pretty traditional, but it seems as though more and more couples are opting for something a little more outlandish — and what could be more outlandish than the hair of a rockstar?
Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow
Slash is one of the most successful rock stars that the world has to offer, and in 2001 he married Perla Ferrar in an epic ceremony that featured an awesome wedding cake — complete with wedding cake topper. Of course, anyone who is familiar with this musician will know that he’s not your average guitarist. So, it should probably come as no surprise to learn that he pulled out all of the stops for his wedding, and he even used his own hair to make his wedding topper more authentic.
Now on Sale
However, when Slash and Perla got divorced in 2018, his ex-wife decided to sell the wedding topper on eBay. It’s now for sale for a whopping $3,000 and comes complete with a certificate to confirm that it really is Slash’s real hair on the wedding topper. We’re sure there’s someone out there who would want this, right?
Wedding toppers really finish off your wedding cake, so it’s time to get creative.
Minimalism – the Predominant Wedding Trend for Newlyweds in 2021
Due to the restrictions that took place in 2020, Brides and grooms had to rethink their grand wedding plans and opt for more intimate settings. Wedding elopements and mini ceremonies were on the rise, and that trend has carried into 2021. Modern couples are opting for minimalism both in the scale of their wedding party and the wedding dress design.
Small Weddings Are Not a New Trend
This trend has been gathering strength for several years as the new generations of brides and grooms begin to find more merit in celebrating with their closest family and friends. Instead of a string quartet and a massive hall full of hundreds of guests, contemporary couples are opting for intimate ceremonies. Even with the guest list shortened and the decor made more discrete, modern couples still create unforgettable events that are shared with those most important to them.
Minimalism in Wedding Dress Styles
In place of the classic, fairytale princess cut, many modern brides prefer simple elegance and a dress they can move and dance in, to their hearts’ content. Wedding dress designers have been receiving many more requests for minimalistic styles. The trend translates to the use of quality fabrics and styles custom-tailored to the personality and preferences of the bride. Many designers have responded to the modern bride’s preferences by releasing lines that truly showcase the elegance and beauty of minimalistic designs.
Modern Brides Are Ethical Shoppers
In addition to the minimalism of modern dress design choices that they make, modern brides are far more aware of the global issues the clothing production industry faces than many previous generations were. As ethical shoppers, they do extensive research before making a purchase. This is done in an effort to make sure that the dress for their special day, including all the fabrics used, is made through an ethical line of production.
