Cake Toppers?

Is anyone using a cake topper? I was definitely planning to not have anything on my cake before but I just was wondering what's really out there and if anyone has anything planned.


btw check this one out - yikes

No topper for us also. i think it will ruin cherry blossom themed look. Haha, that cake topper is pretty X-rated!

Champ- hahahaha you have to ask yourself who would buy this.... Hoochie momma bride!

I think the top should match the decor of the wedding and the cake. For instance, the diamond-esque monogram topper works better IMO in a more formal,ornate situation.

I am going to do flowers but I love this one I found on Etsy. Cute for the right cake/decor:

Ugh, I hate those tacky cake toppers. I'm not having people on my cake, but we might do a monogram or flowers. It will depend on the style of cake we ultimately decide to go with. I think it would be cute to do two birds, but I don't think FH will go for that.

That's too funny!! hmmmmmm....
I got a figurine cake topper from cherrylanekeepsakes.com. It's really pretty but if it's too heavy for the cake I will put it next to the cake and put flowers on top instead.

I saw our cake topper before we got engaged and thought if we actually get engaged while it is still available I would get it... Well, a few months later we were engaged and it was one of my first purchases. I just had to get it because it is so us.

The Dame - I wanted to get those topper but FI didn't like them. I thought he would since he loves birds.

Champ - That's a very X-rated topper I have to say but then it really depends on the couple. FI and I decided to use precious moments. It's actually a gift from my MOH (PIB).

Speaking of tacky cake toppers, FI was in a wedding about a year ago. The cake top was made of maripan...it was the bride and groom in their bed with their cloths strewn all over the bed. Tacky!!

Champ, that topper sure adds some 'spice' to the cake...LMAO!

At first, I didn't want a topper. After deciding on using a monogram and crystals as our re-occuring theme, I decided on:

Just remember they do come in differnt sizes make sure that you dont get one that will be too small on a huge cake or too big on a little cake....I think size does matter :o

I would hope that the first one is a joke for Bachelorette party or something!



We didn't have a cake, but if we did, I would have had hippo cake topper, since DH is ga-ga for hippos and has quite the collection!





You can buy them here: http://www.jwcaketops.com/animals/hippos.htm


That said, I just finally saw a cute option for interracial couples...up until now, they really had no options for mixed-race couples. Or even couples who didn't have the same hair and eye color! LOL!


BTW, TheDame, I think those love birds are freakin' adorable!

I think I'm going to use the new Willow Tree cake topper. My FI and I collect the Willow Tree figures, so it's perfect for us.
