We can't forget about the cake! Which sweet selection came first for you?? Smiley cake

Pick your cake topper before your cake? Or did you decide on your cake design first, and then think about toppers?

    Cake topper. We are using my parent's cake topper from their wedding!

    We're going to be doing cupcakes and a small cake for cutting, so the cake topper isn't super important to us.

    Topper: we took our peacock toppers to the taste testing.

    Cake topper, just because we couldn't decide on flavors! We knew where we'd be getting the cake from for awhile but nailing down flavors so we could order it took awhile.

    Cake. Our topper was a last minute purchase since we didn't do anything fancy.

    I think the cake topper. I picked out the cake design I wanted & bought the topper close to the same time, though.

    Had a cake topper in mind but when my Baker sent the sketch she had florals on top and we loved that. We will have our Monogram in the cake so it's all good no topper needed
