For those of you looking for a one-of-a-kind cake topper, we offer you Aimee Empey of Boston-based Paper, Gowns, and Glory. Aimee sculpts custom bride and groom toppers out of Japanese, Italian, recycled, and handmade papers, using special archival glue to prevent yellowing over time. The process starts by sending Amy a photo of you and your fiancé, along with a description or photo of what you'll be wearing on your wedding day. Aimee then works her magic to create a miniature recreation that will last forever. Custom toppers start at $450; visit to order. And see more cake toppers in our Cake Gallery. —Carly Totten
