In this article we round up some of our favorite word cake toppers for your wedding cake. They come in a variety of different materials including: wire, clay, paper, or cardboard.
You can even get personalized word cake toppers that include a favorite word, or you and your partner’s names. The options seem endless!
You may have noticed from this post on cakes inspired by attire, along with this naked cake post, that we absolutely love cakes. They are one of our favorite details of the wedding, and usually the yummiest.
We’ve been seeing a lot of great word cake toppers of late on the blog, so we thought we would share some of our favorites!
1) “WE DO” Cake Topper Banner
by Etsy: whiskeynweddingbells
Incorporate a metal finish to your wedding cake! One thing to keep in mind when shopping for a cake topper is to adhere to the look and feel of the cake. The cake topper pictured above is a little messy and rough, in keeping with the imperfect icing of the cake. I think it looks fantastic!
2) Cupid’s Arrow Custom Initials
A delicate and pretty cake (as picture above) deserves a cake topper design that enhances and matches the overall look and feel. The metal cursive writing works perfectly!
3) “LOVE” Wire Wedding Cake Topper
When it comes to wire wedding cake toppers, LOVE clearly comes in all shapes and sizes!
4) “Love” Gold Wedding Cake Topper
A delicate nearly-naked cake can handle this simple yet elegant gold cake topper.
5) Red LOVE Cake Topper
Striking use of red color from the cake topper contrasts well for a modern black and white striped cake. And check out that ruffled cake stand, swoon!
A top Etsy seller really impresses with this acrylic cake topper. This would be great to reuse as a Valentines Day cake topper too!
6) Love with Heart Wedding Cake topper
by Etsy: MarketingHills
A whimsical take on a classic LOVE cake topper, this heart shaped “O” does a great job standing in to give the topper (and cake) a bit more personality!
7) Rustic wedding cake topper
I love script based toppers. This particular topper comes highly reviewed with many happy customers on Etsy, and can be personalized by using a family name or the first names of the couple.
8) Script Letter Wedding Cake Topper
Elegant and simple, this wooden script topper adds a personal touch without being over-the-top. If you’re going to share a last name, celebrate by showcasing the initial you’ll both be using for the rest of your lives.
9) Mr & Mrs Personalized Cake Topper
A Mr & Mrs cake topper is a perennial favorite among wedding cake afficianados. This particular one is a best seller on Etsy. A simple design with the last name of the couple that could work for a variety of cake styles.
10) Mr and Mrs Wedding Cake Topper
Another strong example of a Mr. and Mrs. cake toper in a slightly smaller style. There are simply too many cake toppers in this variety to list them all. Go browse Etsy and find the one that you like best!
11) “HIP HIP HOORAY” gold wedding cake topper
Hip Hip Hooray indeed! Look for a cake topper that has a phrase or word that means something to you as a couple. Or perhaps an inside joke!?
12) “Happily Ever After”
Who wouldn’t want to immortalize their wedding day cake with an (oversized) Happily Ever After script cake topper?
13) “Just Married” banner topper
by Ready Go
“Cute” is the main word that happy customers use to describe this banner cake topper from top Etsy seller ReadyGo. Use it on your smaller size cake or wedding dessert pie!
14) “Just Married” Bunting Cake Topper
A mini bunting cake topper is just adorable on this perfectly sized tier two cake with stand. Simple and effective.
