In today’s post, we decided to pay tribute to all those wonderful, creative cake toppers! While the cake is definitely to be admired for its artistry and enjoyed as both a feast for the eyes and the stomach, the pièce de résistance is almost certainly the ornament that graces the top of the cake! It’s a wonderful place to link back to the wedding theme and in most cases, the cake topper chosen provides an extra special insight into the personalities of the couple at the seat of honor. What a perfect place to remind wedding guests of the newlyweds’ common interests, hobbies and loves!
Wedding cake toppers can be purchased in such an array of styles today making it easier than ever to find one that perfectly suits you, your fiancé and your day. Many can even be personalized with your likeness, caricatures, monogram, names or a favorite saying. Adding fresh flowers atop your cake is always a gorgeous way to tie in your theme colors and blooms. And toppers that show your love for your pets are super popular and are a great way to incorporate your fur babies into your day if they can’t be there in person!
When choosing your cake topper, be sure that it fits with the style of your cake and with your wedding’s overall mood and theme. And also make sure it’s a décor item that you and your fiancé both love, since it will be featured in your wedding photos and films and will most likely be one of the keepsakes you save after your wedding day is over.
Whether you want a topper that’s vintage or modern, romantic or funny, simple or ornate, there’s a cake topper out there made just for you. Just a quick google of “unique wedding cake toppers” today will bring up over 50 million results complete with ideas and retailers ready to supply you with a personalized topper that’s simply perfect for your cake.

The weddings we’ve filmed featured wedding cake toppers that run the gamut from fun and quirky to beautiful and artistic. Julia and Andrew chose a ceramic “Beauty and the Beast” topper to coincide with their winter fairy tale wedding and Alisha and Sean had a simple but elegant monogram adorn their nearly naked wedding cake. Kaitlyn and Mike paid homage to their sweet pups (who also came to their wedding) with their cake topper and Kelli and Greg, to their kitties. And Kristina and Curtis referenced their history together with cutouts of their home states on their cake… how two people from far away happened to meet and fall in love. Five different styles, all wonderful choices!
