Wedding Inspiration: The Cutest Cake Toppers

If you've been reading The Barn Blog very long, you know I like to talk about cake. (Examples: the coolest wedding cakes, groom's cakes, wedding cake alternatives, and our preferred vendor, theCakePlace.) Your wedding cake is one of those details that your guests will pay a lot of attention to, so it's gotta be showstopping. And if your guests are going to be staring at it, you might as well top it with something pretty! Cake toppers are proof that even the tiniest detail can make a huge statement. They can say something about your interests as a couple, proudly show off your new last name, reflect your wedding's theme or just serve as something ridiculously cute for your guests to ooh and ahh over. 

Ranging from glam to quirky and cute to elegant, here are my favorite cake toppers!

These are both from the Etsy shop BetterOffWed. There are SO many gorgeous cake toppers in this shop, with plenty of personalized options. Most of them are gold and totally glam. The custom name topper ($79) is here, and the "best is yet to come topper" ($39) is here.

Meredith Melody Photography. Ashley + Ivan's Puerto Rican extravaganza was beyond spectacular, and their cake topper was no different! This option is simple, yet glamorous, and it looks great atop a simple cake.

Etsy has no shortage of peg doll cake toppers. They're extremely customizable, and you can get them in a whole bunch of themes: military, superhero, lots of different occupations, with children, with pets, etc. This superhero and his bride ($90) from Sugar Plum Pegs are so precious! And don't even get me started on this bride and groom with two cats ($98) from Enamor Weddings.

Even though I think octopi are the scariest creatures ever, I can't help but LOVE these sweet octopus toppers ($36) from Jayne Danger! They come in different colors, and you can even get 'em with crazy hairstyles. They also come in zombie form... totally creepy and sorta awesome.

Ruffled; Style Me Pretty. I'm not even going to pretend like I know what that flying llama thing is. But it sure made me laugh! It's cute AND hilarious. Perfect for a couple who doesn't take themselves too seriously. ;) The gold deer toppers are adorable. They're some of my favorites!

The Flaming Flamingo cake topper ($138) from BHLDN is quirky and so. darn. precious. It would be so cute on a pink cake, or for a fun, colorful summer wedding! The arrow topper ($16.99+) is from Le Rustic Chic and it's available in lots of fun colors.

The tandem bike topper ($59) from Heather Boyd Wire makes my bike-loving heart so happy. And these little Razorback lovers ($85)... well, they're simply a necessity for all you diehard Hogs fans. They'd be perfect for a groom's cake!

Style Me Pretty; Style Me Pretty. Bunting cake toppers are always a good idea. They'd be easy to DIY, which means you'd save some money. That painted bride and groom topper is stunning, too.

You know what other kind of topper I love? Gorgeous fresh flowers. And I'm also a fan of a cake covered with flowers without a topper. Really, I am just a fan of cake in general. ;)
