I wanted a bride / groom topper, but couldn’t find any I liked either. We are probably going with either nothing or maybe some flowers on top.

Birds…either Anne Wood ones or some mushroom bird (our cake is one of those bird and twig cakes)

We are not having any "typical" topper. Our cake is going to have a fondant bow on top, to fit with our Christmas theme. The entire top layer is supposed to look like a present sitting on top.

We used this cake topper.  We didn’t know what to use, but since we were honeymooning in Paris, we ordered this online from a Parisian shop.  I love it because now it’s a keepsake– we’re hoping to convert it to a Christmas ornament!

Our topper will also not be traditional. I believe it will be fondant but it will be a painter’s palette, paint brushes and two tubes of paint with one dripping to spell the ‘R’ on the side of the top tier.

We both love to paint so I thought it would be funky and cool to include this in our wedding and on the cake.

We are using a vintage cake topper too! My grandma offered to pay for the cake as long as we use the topper from her and my grandpa’s wedding. I love the idea of a heirloom cake topper…I didn’t even care if I liked it or not. Fortunately I love it!

Definitely ask some family members. It could even be a cousin’s, sister’s, etc. Good luck!

Our plan was just to put some fresh flowers on top of our cake.  I gave our cake baker (a family friend) some flowers left over from our DIY bouquets.  To my surprise, she chose to put a completely different flower on top, a pink gerber daisy..and pink was NOT one of our wedding colors.  I was really bummed out when I saw the cake and the photos still make me a little mad.  I loved the cake and the rest of it, but the top kind of disappointed me.

We are having mini rock hammers that I found on ebay… our topper will look pretty much like my user icon.

FI and I are both geologists, so it’s perfect for us.

I’m using this cake topper. I think it is gorgeous and goes with our tropical reception.

I found an awesome vintage bride and groom from the 30s or 40s that I’m using! Check out ebay, and google, google, google!
