Welcome to Toppers With Glitz; home of custom designed crystal monogram cake toppers, MADE WITH SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS.
Each Topper is made to exceed your expectations and is
handmade by me, Sari (pronounced like "Mary" but with an "S"). I encourage you to
look at some of the work I've done by visiting my Gallery page or to read what former
brides have had to say about their Glitz Toppers on the Testimonials page. You can also
find out more about how I got started under "About Us" and learn how the first crystal
covered monogram cake topper was created.
If you're heart is already set on a monogram cake topper and you're ready to
start building your custom creation, allow me to guide you through all the steps.
We are talking about your wedding, where even the smallest detail matters, so I'll
cover all the options and will try not to leave anything out! I want you to enjoy
picking out your Topper and not have this portion of your wedding planning experience
be remembered as overwhelming or stressful. You are in good hands and I am here to help.
Please don't hesitate to call on my me if you need any help or guidance.
Since each Topper is made to order, there are a few different steps that have to
take place once your order is placed. Make sure to cross reference our Calendar
with your event date to make sure we can get it to you in time and so that you can
order in plenty of time to avoid uneccessary rush charges.
Cake Topper Type
The first thing you'll want to decide is what kind of topper you want: Single
Letter, Full Monogram, or a custom shape (including a monogram that has already
been crafted for you that I can duplicate as a cake topper). If you opt for a
single letter topper, you will next want to determine what height topper you need
based on the diameter of your top cake tier. If you are leaning towards a full
monogram, I offer two types, traditional (xYz) and modern (X&Z), which come in
standard heights. Check out "Cake Topper Types" for more details.
Choosing the font(s) probably will take the longest amount of time. You can
search the fonts by name or by letter. Using the Preview feature can help with
visualization and in determining if different fonts look ok together or not.
Be thinking about if you'd like custom changes, like loops added/removed, or
the mid section of an H reduced/expanded. We can work together to get your
letters perfect but this is an option that will need to be accounted for when an
order is placed.
Other letter upgrades are also available. Platinum color letters come standard
but you have the option of upgrading to a gold coating. The standard thickness
of each letter is 1/8". You may upgrade the thickness to 3/8" to give the Topper
more depth and substance.
When picking out your crystal colors, think about the other colors used to decorate
your cake so that you avoid clashing. Do you want the Topper to be the focal point
(dark colors) or an accent (light colors)? Do you want all of your wedding colors
represented in the Topper or maybe one in particular that is lacking in other places?
The pictures of the crystals were modified to reflect their real life color as
accurately as possible, but crystal colors do vary in different lighting. Upon
request, crystal samples
can be provided.
Where do you want the crystals!? Every order comes with the option of full or
partial crystal coverage. Check out the pictures of each on the Gallery section.
If platinum or gold is a color in your wedding, having partial coverage is an easy
way to incorporate that color into your cake.
Crystals can also be placed on the back of your Topper. You might want to consider
this as an option if your cake table is not agaainst a wall. If you opted to upgrade
the thickness of your letters, crystals can also be placed on the sides, for the fully
The cake pegs are removeable so that you can preserve the memories of your wedding by
having your cake topper on display.
