The cutting of the cake is one of the most sentimental and photographed moments of your wedding day, so really you need the cutest and most charming cake topper around to help make it extra special!
We just adore this crocheted heart topper above that we found on Project Wedding. Gorgeous, can be used for all kinds of cakes (birthday, christening, occasion) for years to come and is a DIY project – it definitely ticks all the boxes for us!
There are some amazing toppers available in the Confetti shop – some brides prefer to have a bit of a personal touch to the cake topper, instead of just a bride and groom standing next to each other! There are personalised signs you can have with your topper for both bride and groom, arty porcelain accents like love birds or an embracing couple, or even a motorcycle romance!
Simple and cute, these fab wood-peg dolls look great anywhere, and we just love the addition of the family pet! Check them out on Etsy, Knotting Wood.
Go for a completely custom cake topper if you want a one-of-a-kind memento – and you can keep it long after the wedding for a lovely souvenir, perhaps even as a family heirloom? You can have figurines made to your exact specifications, and also pose them all over the cake for another personal touch. One-of-a-kind figurines at top left and bottom right by Kristinabelles, and top right and bottom left by Gardners Bakery.
Having a cupcake tower doesn’t mean you can’t have a topper – why not top it with flowers in matching colours, like in this gorgeous cake by Little Cakes!
The hand-painted porcelain cake-toppers above really cater for the different types of couples and can all be purchased from WeddingStar. Wrapped in a romantic embrace (above left) or a curvy and hunky couple ( above right) are modern twists on traditional poses and will definitely get a giggle on your ‘I do’ day!
Flowers are always a favourite alternative to bride-and-groom figurines, and they can be works of art! Here is an example by Little Cakes, a perfect touch of gorgeous colour for a white wedding cake.
