21 Creative Wedding Cake Toppers for the Romantics

It can be the little things that really make the day all about you, some carefully chosen photos beside your guest book, your fave cocktail at the drinks reception and a cute personalised cake topper proudly perched on top of your tiers! The cake topper is a small detail but there’s lots of fun to be had when choosing how to make your cake that little bit more special and personal (it makes a great keepsake afterwards too!). Creative couples have lots of romantic options with everything from banners and bunting with their names on it to chic calligraphy style toppers saying everything from Mr & Mrs to Better Together and Happily Ever After. Or if you’re looking for a cute way to show off you and your partner’s likes, you’ll more than likely find it in cake topper form with toppers shaped like superheroes, bears, dogs and penguins or you can even use Lego figurines if you fancy!

One of our absolute faves and that’s popped up in lots of our real weddings is the personalised caricature style wedding cake topper! This miniature version of the wedding couple will bring some fun and personality to big the cake-cutting moment. These customised toppers can be made to look just like you and your hubby or wife from hair and eye colour down to the clothes they’re wearing – let everyone know you love your hurling with a little jersey or that the groom is a superman fan with a cape. And if you’ve kids or pets, you can have them join you as well! If you’re after a personalised caricature cake topper, Irish companies Belle Toppers and Cake Toppers Ireland can create some adorable figurines for you – check out some of their work below or for more ideas, be sure to pop over to their profile pages where you can take a peek at even more awesome designs.
