Whether you go classic or completely unconventional, your wedding cake topper should be as unique and creative as your cake. Here are a few ideas to get you started…
Where once it was traditional to simply place a bride and groom figurine on the top of your wedding cake, these days wedding cake toppers come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties.
And much like your cake, you should try to select a topper that’s original and reflective of your relationship – whether it be humorous, creative, sweet or stylish.
It’s also important to get the size and balance right, says Grace Sherriff, founder and chief designer at READ MORE: Autumn cake and topper ideas
Material is something you should consider, too. Think about texture, design and what will complement the colours you’ve chosen for your cake and overall theme.
“Choose something that suits the style of your big day,” Grace says. “For instance, a wooden cake topper will look beautiful with rustic styling, while a mirror base will look great with a luxe design.”
She adds, “If you’re opting for a fully decorated cake, then choose a simple cake topper, with just the word ‘love’ or ‘forever’.”
“Decorated cakes can be expensive, so if you’re on a tight budget, choose a simple white cake and dress it up with some foliage and a more stylised topper.”
Lettered cake toppers
Traditional lettering of the bride and groom’s names is a popular and personal choice for many couples. Opt for playful, curly handwriting fonts with extra embellishments like hearts or stars for a chic finish.
