Wedding Cake Topper Idea: Entwined Hearts


One of the myriad of details that your bride-to-be daughter needs to consider, Mother of the Bride, is what kind of cake topper she’d like to have. Lots of brides opt for fresh flowers these days, but a variety of other toppers can provide the crowning touch as well.

One classy and elegant option is pictured above—entwined hearts. This particular example shows jeweled hearts, but I’ve also seen the hearts in a silver or pearl finish. Other colors are probably available, too. And for a rustic-themed wedding, you might be able to find a pair in some kind of wood finish—or maybe even rope or something else equally as rustic!

The entwined hearts topper is a perfect symbol of what’s taking place on wedding day, isn’t it, MOB? Two lives joined together forever. Why not ask your sweet girl what she thinks of this idea? It may be just what she’s looking for!

Engagement Photo Idea: Include Heart Balloons!


Mother of the Bride, don’t you love how fun and creative engagement photos are today? Sure, the photographer may have your soon-to-be Mr. & Mrs. pose for a traditional shot or two, but the more creative shots capturing the personality of the couple or the depth of their love are the ones you’ll love the most.

Pictured above is an engagement photo idea too cute not to pass along—heart balloons included in a shot where the couple is kissing. Isn’t this a super sweet photo? So much love expressed through the kiss as well as the hearts. What a fun shot filled with the promise of a lifetime of love. Romance and fun at the same time make this shot a winner, a real must-have photo to commemorate your little girl’s engagement.

So why not show this heart balloon idea to your daughter, MOB, and see if she and her honey would like to include something similar in their engagement photo session. After all, their hearts are already soaring in love. They might as well picture it, right?!
