I wish this wedding topper was around when I got married. Mutual weirdness is definitely a big plus of marrying your soulmate. They just get you and understand you like no one else can. I bet you can even finish each other’s sandwiches – I mean, sentences! I couldn’t resist the Frozen reference…
Nevertheless, this is the ideal cake topper for you and your Kristoff. See what I mean about the weirdness? It would have been perfect for my big day!
3. Sports Fan Wedding Cake Topper

Oh my goodness yes, I bet so many of us ladies can relate! This too-true topper depicts a bride pulling her sports-obsessed man away from the big screen. You can customize the television to depict nearly any sports team or game. Details on the bride and groom can also be tailored to match the couple’s hair, outfit, and more.
For guests who are well aware of the groom’s infatuation with sports, this fitting topper will definitely get a laugh.
4. Deer Couple Cake Topper
by Etsy: MelaboWed
This Deer Couple Cake Topper is admittedly a little odd, but the more I look at it the more I like it! It’s a little bit whimsical, somewhat elegant, and for sure quirky. It would work really well for a nature wedding theme or an animal-loving couple. The glazed white finish of the porcelain keeps it classy and just the right amount of weird.
As a bonus, it would look awesome as a sculpture in your home long after your wedding.

Gaming couples rejoice! There is finally a way to include your shared passion as a part of your wedding day.

Only the most dedicated athletes would move mountains to get their hands on this weight-lifting cake topper. You can alter almost every part of this funny cake topper to match your style and preferences. You can even send in photos for the designer to model the topper off of so it will resemble you and your partner to a T.
8. Fishing Bride Cake Topper
This sweet fishing cake topper has a vintage feel, which I love. It looks like those elegant porcelain figurines that used to grace the shelves of my grandparent’s house. And I mean that in a good way – vintage is in!
With the delightful antique appearance, you would expect a demure bride and a dashing groom. However, in this scene, the bride is reeling in her husband, who she hooked by the seat of his pants with a fishing pole. The mix of old-school charm and new-age humor is great!
9. Drunk Bride & Groom Cake Topper
by Etsy: GreatbritishCraftUK
If you’re planning to party the night away, this wedding cake topper is very fitting! The black silhouette is elegant and understated, working with a variety of cake designs and themes. The name can be personalized, making this a wonderful keepsake.
But the icing on the cake, excuse the pun, is the hilariously drunk bride and groom who are toasting to their life of wedded bliss with more than a few shots.
10. Custom Food Cake Toppers
by Etsy: SamsSweetArt
I see no issue topping a delicious wedding cake, one of the tastiest foods in my opinion, with more food! This custom wedding cake topper can be made into any delectable dish. Do you and your partner go together like a burger and fries? Cookies and milk? Show your affinity for each other (and for tasty treats) with an adorable food topper complete with a delightful cartoon face.
11. Pizza Delivery Cake Topper
by Etsy: mudcards
Do you remember when Mia gave Michael Moscovitz the “I’m Sorry” pizza in the Princess Diaries movie? Couple goals! This Pizza Delivery cake topper would have certainly been their wedding cake topper of choice. You can customize the hair, attire, eye color, and even the bouquet. Pizza is truly the way to your partner’s heart.
12. Paper Cupcake Topper
by Etsy: LalabugCreations
Cupcakes instead of a huge tiered wedding cake is a popular wedding trend, but it sort of eliminates the need for a grand cake topper. That doesn’t mean you have to leave your cupcakes naked, though. These paper cupcake toppers are awesome. It is a digital file that you download, customize the bride and groom’s face with your photo, and voila! You have a cute and hilarious-looking paper cut out for each and every cupcake.
13. Bride in Charge
by The Knot
We ladies all know who really wears the pants in the relationship, even if it takes our guys a few months of marriage to figure it out. This Bride in Charge cake topper may help to clue them in! The smart and stylish bride is hilariously wearing her man’s pants under her wedding dress and the pant-less hunk is left wondering what happened. Marriage buddy, that’s what happened!
14. Flamingo Cake Topper
by Etsy: lovenesting
I absolutely adore this topper. Two delightful flamingoes, outfitted with a veil and a bowtie, sends major tropical vibes. If you have a destination or summer wedding planned, this topper and your cake would be a match made in heaven. As flamingoes are one of the few monogamous animals (at least for a season), they’re very fitting for a day of “I do’s”.
15. Quarantine Theme Cake Topper
by Etsy: Indigo28caketopper
How could we resist? While some of us may want to forget the dumpster fire that was 2020, others want to remember how unique their quarantine wedding was. This masked mini couple has a handful of customization options and is designed out of lasting polymer clay, so it will hold up, just like your memories of social distancing.
Speaking of that, I wonder what happens when the officiant says “you may now kiss the bride”?
