There are SO many different kinds of cake toppers out there for the newly engaged to choose from. I feel like it’s a detail that’s often left until the end, or is left up to the bakery as an afterthought. I have to say though, after watching one too many episodes of Ace of Cakes, you can get some pretty bad ass cake toppers that say a lot about you as a couple and wow your guests.

I have a total love affair with Etsy so when it’s time to buy anything I ever need I always start there. It’s unique and beautiful and the odds that you’ll be the only one in possession of it at your given event…way better than if you go the department store route.

Ann Wood Handmade Designs is another one with seriously beautiful fabric cake toppers! There are birds, yes, but there are also “other creatures” like owls I think…but the best part is that Ann names them all! So the “sweethearts” that she has have names like Bess and Ollie, Pearl and Teddy, Clementine and Harper and my personal favorite Roslyn and Schefield.  Right now her “sweethearts collection” is completely sold out. So keep an eye out for new items and buy when you have the chance! Plus you can check out her blog and see her work in progress and get updates when new items are available. Her work is truly amazing.

The other thing to do is ask around in your family. There are probably hundreds of heirloom materials that could be worked into DIY cake toppers at your wedding to make it both simple, sophisticated and meaningful. Craft stores are LOADED with things to create and make. Go easy on the be-dazzler and don’t let it cross over  from DIY to DIY disaster. There’s a fine line.
