Have you ever wondered how brides and grooms choose wedding cake toppers? It is a great way  for couples to add a personal touch to their wedding cake.

Some popular choices are based on a favorite activity (video games, movies) or sport (baseball, football), while some are based on the bride or groom’s career (fireman, nurse). It also can be based on the overall wedding theme or can simply be a monogrammed initial of the couple’s last name.

Grooms getting more involved in planning the wedding

In the past 5 years, more grooms are having their say with wedding plans and not just “showing up” on the day of the wedding.



“The modern groom is trendy, savvy and stylish and wants to bring aspects of his style to the wedding,” says McKnight, a Brampton wedding planner. With many couples footing the bill, “grooms want to have a say in where those wedding dollars go, including a great suit, a bar stocked with their favourite premium liquors, maybe cigar and scotch after dinner, and an amazing honeymoon.”

Groom’s Wedding Cake Alternatives

In my many years entertaining at Philadelphia weddings, I’ve seen some great Groom’s cakes which really add a personal touch. Most of them have been sports related – a favorite sport such as golf, football, baseball, or favorite sports teams are also a great idea.

If the groom doesn’t eat cake, no worries. Here are some great alternatives from The Man Registry.

Interesting statistics about the average cost of a wedding in 2011. You can also see the average cost by city.

Which brings us to the answer… the average cost of a Philadelphia Wedding in 2011 is $16,931.

The average cost across the country for wedding gowns, wedding cakes, wedding photographers, wedding florists, wedding DJ entertainment, etc. are there as well. 

Keep in mind though that it is an average only based on wedding data from across the entire USA.

Most brides and grooms that I get the opportunity to work with, however, don’t want average for their big day… would you?
