Wedding cake toppers: 25 Unique designs to transform your wedding cake

You spend so much time carefully considering the flavour, look and style of your wedding cake, so don’t forget the cherry on top and find the perfect cake topper to crown your wedding cake.

A perfectly chosen wedding cake topper can beautifully complete an intricate design, alternatively it can transform a more budget-friendly supermarket wedding cake into something unique that will look gorgeous in your wedding photos. If you want something bespoke for your wedding cake then you will find plenty of personalised designs to choose from. Or you may want to keep things traditional with little statues of you both sitting proudly at the top of your cake. If your style is more cute and cuddly then swap a traditional topper for an animal wedding cake topper, or keep things light hearted and choose something funny.
