Wedding Cake Toppers that Will Steal the Show

No one should ever have to overthink wedding topper ideas. It’s merely a small part of the wedding but the devil is in the details, right?

We’ve picked out 5 ideas for you to make your life a bit easier.

Fresh Flowers

Real flowers add (literal) freshness to the wedding setting. Since you can get a few blooms from your existing flower arrangement, you don’t need to spend extra just to buy them separately.

This clean, white three-tiered cake by d’Elissious Cake Studio looks like an extension of Lauryl Lane’s rich, rust-colored floral backdrop.

Bare is absolutely beautiful. Tap into this year’s most wanted minimalist theme by adorning your plain cake only with greenery. Décor doesn’t always have to be on top.

If you’re decorating the cake on your own, be sure to wash the flowers, leaves, twigs or any plant you want to attach to the cake.

Fondant or Gum Paste Flowers

Not all couples are comfortable with fresh flowers on the cake. If you’re one of them but you still want to achieve a natural look for your cake, opt for fondant or gum paste wedding flower toppers.

Artificial edible flowers are also a good idea if mother nature doesn’t have the color palette of your dreams. Here, the oversized roses on top of this two-layer shiny champagne cake have a certain crispness needed for this timeless, classic concept.
