Wedding cake toppers are known to be used for over 100 years. If a hundred years ago, the wedding cake toppers featured a bride and groom in various poses and were kept by the newlywed couple in order to remember and cherish their wedding day, nowadays wedding cake toppers keep the same meaning but they have been personalized in order to be unique for each and every couple.

Ethnic personalized wedding cake toppers
Having custom ethnic wedding cake topper on your wedding cake is a perfect idea for those couples that want to show how proud they are about their background. It doesn’t matter if one or both of you come from India, China, Eastern Europe or South America, deciding to have an unique ethnic wedding cake topper will represent a nice and elegant touch and will definitely impress your families.
Wedding themed personalized cake toppers
Choosing to have custom wedding cake toppers that match your wedding theme is a simple and also elegant way to personalize it. With some wedding themes, you can actually have custom wedding cake toppers that not only represent your theme but represent you as an unique couple too. For example, I witnessed a vampire theme wedding and their cake topper represented them as a vampire couple. I loved it.
Seasonal personalized wedding cake toppers
I am sure that among all of you there are brides to be that have special feelings for a certain season. I admit that I love fall. If so, why not make your wedding represent your love for that feeling? I have seen many seasonal themed weddings and I have to admit that those weddings were the ones I loved most. There are special cake toppers you can use for each and every season: you can go with leaf cake toppers for fall weddings, with snowflake wedding cake toppers for winter, or with fan cake toppers for a beach themed wedding in the summer. All these cake toppers can become custom and unique if you engrave your names and wedding date on them, or if you print a picture of the two of you.
Sport personalized wedding cake toppers
For all the sports lovers, there are custom sport themed wedding cake toppers to help them personalize their wedding cake. No matter if you are passionate about sports that involve balls, cars, fights, or swimming, you can make your wedding cake toppers customized to express your unique bond with that sport. My favorite custom cake topper is a pair of hiking boots that a couple who loved hiking had at their wedding. Each hiking boot was customized with the initials of the spouses.
Hobby themed personalized wedding cake toppers
Hobbies play a very important role in our lives, as they make us relax and enjoy something else besides our work and family. Having hobby themed weddings is a very popular and unique trend and I have to admit I love the idea. My best friends are passionate about fishing, so when they got married they had a custom wedding cake topper representing them going fishing. The groom was holding a net and the bride was holding the fish they caught. It was unique, funny, custom and elegant at the same time.
Monogrammed personalized wedding cake toppers
Monogrammed custom wedding cake toppers are usually used in very formal weddings, where the couple wants to make sure that the cake topper is personalized but it also has good taste. The monograms can be carved in a piece of glass, or can be made of eatable letters, or made of silver letters. If you choose to have monogrammed custom cake toppers on your wedding cake, make sure they match your wedding style.
Animal themed personalized wedding cake toppers
If you are pet owners, or you just love animals, or you use animal names as an endearment, why not have a custom cake topper to represent this special and unique feeling you have for little animals. If you are a very romantic couple choose swans as cake toppers, if you are a practical couple, choose cats or dogs for your custom wedding cake topper; if you like the wild life go with tigers or elephants as custom wedding cake toppers. Animal themed cake toppers are funny and meaningful at the same time.
Edible personalized wedding cake toppers
Although the tradition says that the cake toppers should be kept as a reminder of your unique experience you lived on your wedding day, there are couples who prefer to be more practical and decide to have custom wedding cake toppers that are comestible. These cake toppers are made of sugar, or batter and they can have any unique shape you have in mind. When the wedding cake is cut, the cake topper is also cut and shared with the wedding guests.
Personalized handmade wedding cake toppers
Having custom handmade details at your wedding is the newest and the most popular trend when it comes for weddings. If you are passionate by hand made things, or you just like to have a green wedding, choose a custom handmade cake topper that not only that will impress your wedding guest, but will make you feel an unique bond with nature. Handmade cake toppers can be made of carved wood, or pressed flowers, or paper, or of different thing you can find around the house.
Cartoon themed wedding cake toppers
If you love cartoons, or you just have a favorite couple from a cartoon, why not choose a custom cartoon themed wedding cake topper. If your love story had a beginning characterized by shyness you could choose Miki and Minnie Mouse for your custom cake topper. If one of you had to fight for the one you love, you could choose the Popeye and Olive for your unique cake topper. Either way with a custom cartoon themed wedding cake topper you will make an unexpected impression on your wedding guest.
Career themed wedding cake toppers
Having a custom career themed wedding cake topper is a nice and unique way to show that you really love your profession and that you are really proud about your work. No matter if you are working in the army, or as a firefighter, or as an IT engineer, or as a driver, or scientist, you can create an unique and custom cake topper to represent your love and respect for your career.
