    I say skip it if you don’t like it!  We couldn’t find anything we liked, so we’ll have flowers on top of the cake, but I could have just as easily gone without anything.  I wouldn’t want something just because it’s "traditional."  I wanted something we like!

    Oooops… I read "can i skip the cake topper?" and voted YES!  (but your question was actually do you need it? = NO!)  We didn’t have one, I never even thought about it.

    I actually made our cake topper, but otherwise we would have forgone the idea because we found most of them to be hideous or not appropriate for our wedding.

    we weren’t going to have one either – the cake wasn’t a big deal to me. But it turned out a present my then fiance had given me for our dating anniversary (a pretty, modernistic figurine of a man holding a bride in his arms) was also a cake topper! So we used it.

    I’m not having a topper – one more thing to overspend on, and the worry about "now what do I do with it?" afterwards…

    If you want to pretty-up your cake there are lots of other options – ribbon, fondant/iced decorations, a geometric design in a different colour icing, real flowers, fruits…

    I didn’t have one.  The bakery just put some fresh flowers up there and it was fine.  I coudn’t find anything I liked and I wasn’t willing to shell out $$ for something I didn’t like.

    Skip it!  I’m not entirely sold on having one, either.  I think I’m going to stick with flowers.

    It’s totally okay to skip it!  A cake topper is another one of those little wedding details that no one notices except for the bride and maybe the groom. 😛

    I wasn’t planning to have one, but I found one I really liked (it’s small, not breakable and painted to look like us!!)

     

    I say skip it. If it doesn’t bother you, no one else will notice.

    I say skip it. If you don’t want it, why have it? You can easily use other things (like flowers) instead.

    Oh shoot, I clicked the wrong button.  Yes, skip it if you don’t want it!

    We are just having flowers. I always thought of them as sort of cheesy. Since my fi and I are interracial this makes cake topers look even odder. The bottom line is if you don’t want it then you don’t have to have it.
