Tip from the Ribbon Box: Angle your Topper!

Filed under: Tip from the Ribbon Box — by Ribbon Box Events, LLC @ 8:31 pm

A quick and easy Friday tip for the weekend.  Angle your cake topper so it is visible from afar, not just looking down over top it. Looks fab in pics too!

Check out Laura & Ryan’s topper. See what I mean?

Recently, Ugg Australia introduced the “I Do Wedding Collection,” consisting of two boots and one comfy flip flop style that apparently brides to be should add to their wedding day wardrobe, or during the engagement period.


Above, left to right from Ugg I DO Collection: Sparkles, Fluff Flip Flop, and Bailey Bling.

Plenty of brides have looked to Ugg and their knockoff competitors for their wedding day, whether it’s  hanging out in a comfy pair while getting ready….

or Winter Weather Bridal Parties trekking around town and staying cozy and warm

However.. many have not sought out a “bridal” white/silver combo- they are opting for some contrast with their dresses.

What are you thoughts, is Ugg onto something, or did they miss the mark? Would YOU wear any of these on your wedding day (getting ready, or during the actual festivities?) Comment below!
