Best Wedding Cake Topper Ideas

The drinks are flowing, your delicious dinner has settled and guests are ready to dance the night away––but there’s still room for a sweet treat!

While dessert bars may be trendy, the classic wedding cake is still an excellent choice that will never go out of style. Coming in endless amounts of flavors, wedding cakes are the bow that ties your reception together.

Beyond the cake itself, you can add a special topper for the cherry on top. Cake toppers are the perfect way to sprinkle extra personality during your special day’s reception.

Stay with me here––I know what you’re imagining. When you hear cake toppers, you might imagine two figurines of a bride and groom. Chase your bliss if that's your style, but wedding cake toppers today don’t have to be what your mom used in the 80s.
