Part 1: Cake Toppers
Your wedding day is approaching fast! Are you using a monthly checklist to carry out your plans? If you buy your wedding cake topper, decorations, favors, and attendant gifts as early as possible, you’ll be able to relax a lot more the month before the wedding and enjoy everything you’ve put together. Plus it gives you a little room to take care of any last minute things that come up unexpectedly without the added stress.
In Part 1 of this four-part series, here are some unique handmade and vintage wedding cake toppers from Etsy shops to help you find what will be just right for you! Click photos to go to the shop listing for each item.
Happy Wedding Wishes,
Think delicious! Think dramatic! It is hard to imagine a wedding or any celebration without a cake.
The wedding cake holds a place of honor at the reception, and is the highlight of the wedding during the cutting ceremony. It symbolizes happiness, good fortune, and a sweet life together.
Today’s wedding cakes can reflect the couples’ hobbies, occupations or personal interests.
Other wedding cake design considerations will include:
- The color theme used in the reception area.
- Wedding cake’s flavor, filling and icing preferences.
- The cake’s assembly; for example, stacked or tiered? And if tiered, will the tiers be placed directly above one another or will satellite tier stands be used? Will this be a sheet cake?
- Shape of the layers: round, square, heart?
- Wedding cake ornaments may include fun charms for the bridesmaids, elegant cake jewelry, silk butterflies, live or sugarcraft flowers, and of course the cake’s topper.

Sometimes you are smacked with something amazing. Something you wish you had thought of first or something you wish you could do. That is how I feel about this artist’s work. Eric from WeddingsAndWire is so creative and original it makes me envious! These cake toppers blow my mind. Each one is created to the clients specifications. Like off the wall? Super personalized? Then this is your guy. Giant birds, fast motorcycles, and bugs are his specialties.
>Part of being an offbeat wedding blog is accepting all kinds of ideas and lifestyles that don’t fit the mainstream ideas of “normal”. We not only accept these wonderful differences we celebrate them. Here are a few cool wedding products that do not fit into Barbie and Ken’s white wedding.
|Groom and Groom Gay Wedding 8×10 print http://www.etsy.com/listing/38320241/groom-and-groom-gay-wedding-8-x-10
Rosydesignsonline has super cute prints available in a his/his and hers/hers wedding options. I think this would be a great gift. I bet Rosydesignsonline would even create these into wedding invitations.
|Same Sex Wedding Cake Topper http://www.etsy.com/listing/55181281/same-sex-wedding-cake-topper-signature|
Theenchantedcupboard creates all kinds of wedding cake toppers but these are my favorite. I especially like that the couple is multi raced. Completely custom varieties are also available.

|Classic 50s 4Tier Tulle Crinoline http://www.etsy.com/listing/53336696/classic-50s-4-tier-tulle-crinoline-22
Swankunderpinnings has amazing style. 1950’s retro with today’s modern colors. Any bride wearing this will feel special and unique. I love the variety of color coordinating crinolines available. Add a matching hair fascinator or sash from Swankunderpinnings. Can you imagine how a vintage dress would look with this under it? WOW!
This super sparkling glitter and gold encrusted cake topper is from Etsy’s own ScatteredStardust. Don’tcha know she’s from Minnesota. The cool weather is obviously making her work indoors more. These letters take her more than 10 hours each to complete. Amazing. A total steal at $50.00. I know, I know the whole peacock thing is starting to play out a bit…but I love this piece so much I just don’t care. I think that any jewel toned wedding would be complimented. I can so see taking this home after all of the pomp and circumstance is over and framing it in a shadow box along with a photo of the wedding cake.
