Picking out your wedding cake topper will probably be one of the very last decisions you make when it comes to your wedding day. It's a decision usually made with your cake designer and what is so great about your cake topper is that the options are endless!
Cake toppers have come a long way from the traditional bride and groom figurines that you used to see. Today couples are getting creative, they are getting personal and many are customizing their cake toppers.
These days you can find that couples may top the cake with fresh flowers that match the bouquets and floral arrangements throughout the wedding. Others are simply putting their initials at the top of the cake and some adding a little humor and romance.
Here are some of our favorite wedding cake toppers!
