Even the prettiest wedding cake can use some help to take it to the next level. Sure, you can top your dessert with colorful flowers or carefully-crafted fondant designs, but we'll always love the finishing effect of a creative cake topper. Couples are finding toppers that reflect their personal style, with adornments that range from playful to chic. Here are a few of our favorites:
Laser-Cut Sign (above): Laser-cut signs are affordable toppers that look elegant and luxe, but won't break your budget. We love cute sayings, like the one seen above, but your initials or wedding date would also work.

Modern Figurines: Animal figurines have become wildly popular topper options, but these little blue bears are among our favorites. Paired with a chalkboard-inspired mini sign, they're perfect for a quirky couple.

Classic Figurines: If you do want to go the traditional route, this a great way to make typical bride and groom figurines feel a bit more fresh. A playful bunting banner makes the look less formal, and you can customize it to say just about anything you'd like.
