Why Wedding Cake Toppers Matter
What sits on top of your cake can almost be as important as the cake itself. Okay – not really, but it is a unique opportunity to showcase something unique about you and your partner. Since all eyes will be on the wedding cake, you can add a personal flair with your cake topper by going as crazy or traditional as you like.
We’ve dug around for some of the craziest and coolest wedding cake toppers available in 2019 that will take your cake to the next level. Read on for more fun & quirky ideas.
Unique Wedding Cake Topper Ideas
Hortense B. Hewitt Elegant Peacock Cake Topper
A truly unique design – the Hortense B. Hewitt topper features a white resin heart, adorned with painted feathers on a fleur de lis base, The topper is 4.75 x 5.75 inches, so it will look best on a smaller or medium sized cake. If you’re looking for a non-traditional, this is what you want! It also has cloth on the base of the topper so that you do not scratch any surfaces when storing it after the wedding is over.
Snowy Owl Cake Topper in Winter White
This unique and fun wedding cake topper is sure to be a hit for nature lovers and those who love the great outdoors. This cute pair of “lovebird” owls features a bride and groom, wearing matching feather ensembles. The bride bird shines in a tulle veil and floral headpiece, and is joined by a handsome gentleman in a black bow tie.
Each owl measures in at 3.5 inches long and 1.5 inches tall, and have a clips included so you can be confident they don’t go flying away. Each set of birds is hand-finished by the artists Eric & Becky Kazana, so you will receive a truly unique and one-of-a-kind set of birds. Our favorite thing about these lovebirds is that they can be used over and over again each year during Christmas.
Spooky Skeleton Bride and Groom Wedding Cake Topper
This spooky & fun cake topper is sure to delight your guests. These skeleton-lovers are hand-crafted from cold cast resin and are 3.5 x 2.5 x 8 3/8 inches. Because of their hand-crafted nature, colors may differ slightly than what is pictured. You can bring your topper back from the dead every year during Halloween and remember the scarily fun times you had on your wedding day.
Lillian Rose Coastal Beach Seashell Wedding Cake Topper
This resin seashell cake topper is absolutely perfect for a destination or beach-themed weddings. It’s total size is 4″ wide, and 5″ tall. We love the two cuddling starfish sitting in their shell of love, just as you will be on the big day. Even if your wedding is not by the beach but has an ocean theme, this topper is perfect for you.
Willow Tree “Around You” Cake Topper
Each cake topper by Willow Tree comes with an enclosed card as a gift for you. Each 5.5″ hand-painted figure is carefully carved and crafted to elevate your cake to new heights. All paint used on the figures is lead-free and tested for safety, but is not waterproof, so if you need to clean the topper use a paper towel and do not submerge in water.
Susan Lordi has been hand-carving these sculptures since 1999 in her Kansas City studio from the wood of old Willow trees. These figures speak of healing, comfort, protection, and inspiration with their soft and gentle displays of love and affection. A perfect addition to any cake!
