Brittny Drye Founder + Editor-in-Chief of Love Inc. Magazine | On-Air Wedding Expert | LGBTQ+ Inclusivity in the Wedding Industry



Not everyone wants to put the traditional miniature versions of themselves in various poses on top of their wedding cake (I cringe every time I see the ball and chain one). Luckily for us, the cake topper industry has gotten extremely creative in recent years and we've rounded up a few of our favorites that range from retro to modern, nautical to downright adorable.

Budget-friendly tip: Almost any small item can be a cake topper. Look around your home for ceramics, clip Polaroids of the two of you into photo holders or DIY with poms poms.
