Your guests eat with their eyes first, so if you want your friends and family to be excited to dig in to a slice of your wedding cake, it's time to seriously consider a unique wedding cake topper. Long gone are the days of bride and groom figurines atop your tiered confection. Contemporary couples are, instead, choosing fresh, modern, and playful decorations to sit on that top tier.
While lush flowers and sugar details are always pretty cake toppers, don't be afraid to get creative with the wedding tradition. Unique wedding cake toppers can make your confection more fitting to you and your partner's personalities or wedding theme. After all, the rest of your wedding day is catered to your personal style—why shouldn't your wedding cake be, too?
For starters, we love the look of wire wedding cake toppers, carefully twisted into the shapes of your initials. At tropical weddings, a wedding cake topper that features bright florals and greenery will fit in quite nicely. You can even use a pair of pretty pink flamingos, like the topper above. Are you and your soon-to-be spouse pet parents? How about a wedding cake topper featuring a miniature replica of your dog or cat? Acrylic or laser-cut wedding cake toppers with cute quotes are also fun and original options. (One proclaiming "Happily Ever After" is the perfect choice for a romantic celebration!)
Meanwhile, we've also seen couples use unique materials like fabric bunting for their wedding cake toppers. And we especially love the blend of cultures that a wedding cake topper featuring a phrase in a foreign language brings.
See? There are so many unique wedding cake toppers out there besides those mini bride and groom figurines! Ready to find the perfect topper to sit pretty on your wedding cake?
