Cons to Having a Cake Topper

  • Can limit the style of your cake
  • Cost of cake topper
  • Stress of finding a cake topper you like.

Pros to Having a Cake Topper

  • Adds style quickly to your cake.
  • Can be personal to you.
  • Long lasting (i.e. will not “die”)
  • Becomes a keepsake from your wedding day.
  • Is a traditional symbol of unity
  • Cuter than flowers
  • Can be a spark of personality in a sea of white and tradition.

Other things to consider:

If you are using fresh flowers instead of a traditional cake topper you may find yourself spending just as much money or more on something that will wilt and die later on. With that, you also have to be very careful about when the flowers are purchases and when they are attached to your cake. Flowers can be beautiful and may even be a better option for some wedding styles and themes, but they are not necessarily a better option.

Also, your cake topper is a great way to incorporate the something old, new, borrowed and blue tradition as you can easily use a family members cake topper or find one that features the blue color.

Cake toppers may not be for everyone, but they are at least worth looking at!
