Inspiration: The Best [of the best] Wedding Cake Toppers

What you choose to to crown your wedding cake (or cupcake spread…or pie…or doughnuts) is an opportunity to showcase a bit of you and your beloved. You want to choose something that represents the two of you as a couple; perhaps it’s a classic monogram of your initials, an inside joke, or something whimsical that will elicit “ooh’s”, “aah’s,” and "oh that's perfect" from your guests. Your marriage and your relationship is unique, so have fun choosing your wedding cake toppers! A few things to keep in mind when selecting your perfect topper:

  • Make sure your topper will actually fit your cake or dessert! Be sure to get the dimensions and discuss your topper ideas with your wedding cake bakery or vendor.
  • Plan ahead! If you are ordering personalized wedding cake toppers, make sure you build in enough time for processing and shipping.
  • Feeling overwhelmed? Sit down with your husband-or wife-to-be and brainstorm. This should be an easy and enjoyable detail, so enjoy yourself, and let your personality as couple shine through!
