Each wedding cake needs something good to top it off. A lot of people just use flowers nowadays, but there are lots of terrific possibilities for small figurines (people, animals, and thematic) to perch atop the top tier of your cake. Check out these adorable ideas for wedding cake toppers.

The bride and groom figurines are the most traditional form of cake topper. There are several variations available that almost anyone can find a style which appeals to them. Vintage figurines in the 1920s-1950s are especially popular. They are made from great materials like porcelain, Bakelite, or sometimes timber, and can be found in vintage stores, online, and occasionally at bridal salons. Each age has its own distinctive style. The '50s toppers feature brides in pearl bridal jewelry and grooms in shawl collar tuxedos, the ones from the '40s sometimes have the groom in army attire, and earlier toppers frequently featured cutesy little Kewpie doll couples.

For modern bride and groom toppers, many couples like the offbeat ones. They can be found to suit almost any interest (for instance, a bride and groom riding a bicycle or holding fishing rods) and in the event you can not find what you would like, you can purchase it on etsy. Brides and grooms performed in the style of the Mexican Day of the Dead figurines. You will find bobble heads, Nightmare Before Christmas couples, as well as classic porcelain figures for the traditionalists.

Wedding theme toppers are a terrific idea for a cake decoration. They can tie in with both the design of the cake and the general wedding motif. For a nautical wedding, perch a little lighthouse on the top tier. If the wedding theme is Winter Wonderland, pick a three-dimensional snowflake ornament. Once you get thinking about it, there are several fun toppers you can decide to tie in with a theme. A pair of squirrels for a woodsy wedding could be darling. Or how about a mermaid for a wedding on a ship? Be sure to save your topper for a memento of your wedding.

Your cultural heritage can also serve as inspiration for your cake decorations. The couple who is having an East-meets-West party can pick a pair of origami cranes for their own cake. For an Irish bride or groom, consider a cake frosted in a basketweave pattern, with sugar shamrocks on the tiers and a freestanding Claddagh symbol on top. A mini Eiffel tower could be great for the bride with a French background. If the classic bride and groom are more your style, be sure to select figurines with the same ethnicity as the real couple. These days, they may be ordered online or have your set custom made.
