    I just e-mailed you a picture of my brother and sister-in-law’s cake topper. I’m pretty sure she also ordered it from Etsy, you can find the cutest stuff on there!

    We used the same one my parents had on their cake.

    I looked at options for a cake topper but decided against one when I couldn’t find what I liked. We only had a sheet cake though so it wasn’t a big deal.

    I love them all! I didn’t have a cake topper but have seen some where they actually make figures of the bride and groom and they actually look like them!

    I love the first one! Definitely in the “funny ’cause it’s true” category.

    The cake topper wasn’t important to me and the bakery includes fresh flower topper in the price so I went that route. My main flowers were green hydrangeas so it really filled it out and worked with my theme… and kept things simple for me (which was my real “theme” hahah!).

    I do love the little wooden people though. So cute with the little dog!

      I really like fresh flowers as a topper! Bonus that it was included in the price!!

    I love those! That first one is hilarious. It would have been pretty fitting for my husband and I too. Can’t wait to see what you end up going with. Wedding planning is so fun!!

    I got married in NYC, and had a pretty modern wedding, so I ordered this cake topper on etsy – http://www.etsy.com/listing/82192676/wedding-cake-topper-perfect-for (but in white). I LOVED it!

    HA the first one is awesome. We actually did a Luigi & Princess Daisy (from Nintendo) cake topper for our cake – it was a HUGE hit and fit us perfectly!

    Picking a cake topper is fun fun. We had personalized bobble heads on ours. I still love them today!

    Ours was made by the etsy seller who did the second one you showed (the FSU one). She did an incredible job and was so great to work with… highly recommend! She nailed every detail I asked for, down to Homer Simpson slippers on the husband… it was a huge hit and you can display it forever!

    • Meghann

      She look like she does great work – I spent 30 minutes skimming every cake topper in her porfolio. Do you have a picture of yours?

        Sure… it’s the last picture when you scroll down this blog post:

        If you want to see it with the cake underneath, I can e-mail you pics like that… I wanted it to feature my curly hair, painting and teaching, and my husband’s baking, love of the Phillies, and Homer slippers.
        Hope that helps! -Jenn

    Our cake topper was one of my favorite wedding details! They were two little bride and groom dinosaurs (I’ve always loved dinos) that we had custom made on Etsy. I also combed Etsy for cute toppers and just always kept coming back to this one. Here’s the seller’s link: http://www.etsy.com/shop/theaircastle?section_id=7153530

    Can’t wait to see what you guys pick!

      Adorable! I should have suggested that seller to my sister (her and her husband have a soft spot for monkeys)

    We got some extra flowers from our florist and put those on top of our cake. That was one of those things that was low on my priority list.*

    Our cake topper was a glass Cinderella & Prince Charming with our names & wedding date on it. My maid of honor bought it for us as an engagement gift {once she knew the date of the wedding obvi}. We now display it in our home.

    I used my grandparents cake topper, which was super small so we put it on a pedestal (aka the little circle thing that comes in some pizza boxes) and put flowers around it.

    My new last name happened to start with a D and my husband and I happen to be huge Detriot Tigers fans. So it was only fitting that we got the signature English D of the Tigers to be our topper.

    we had a vertical fondant striped wedding cake and so at the top was a fondant bow. like with tons of loops though, not just a two stringed bow.

    I like very simple ones, like the initials or fresh flowers or even the snowflakes. I don’t love the ones that are meant to look like actual people…I feel like they can very easily veer into creepy! That said, I really like the one with the dog you showed, and major bonus points to that Etsy seller for showing some non-white/interracial toppers in their shop! Honestly, I think part of the reason I don’t want to go the bride and groom route is that I get stressed out about the fact that there aren’t a ton of interracial couple toppers out there.

    I bought a cake topper (but I’m not sure if we’re going to really get to use it now due to major wedding changes and me not liking the cake options I was given) that represents use both and how we met with these little rock climber groom and bride: http://www.darylsrockandwireworks.com/Sports-and-Hobbies-Cake-Toppers.php

    I added a “Sara & Nick” to go on the actual top of the cake, too.

    Those are all cute. We had little clay polymer figures made from a gal on Etsy. They were of our dog and cat – we sent her pictures and she did such a good job. Then I made a little sign that read “We do, too” and I glued it all to a mirror that sat on top of the cake. I LOVED it and still have it on a shelf in our house. One of my favorite wedding details.

    No cake topper for me, but I would just do the monogram letters.
