Favorite Wedding Cake Toppers

When you're obsessed with the wedding world, you tend to have a lot of favorites. So we're starting a new series called "Favorite Things" where we're rounding up our favorites from past features and beyond organized by topic. To kickstart these, we're giving nod to one of our huge favorites: cake toppers!

It's probably because I have Celiac that I'm overly enamored with the pretty cakes that I can't eat-- oh, life's cruel irony! But with all of the styles, themes, and personalities out there, cakes take on their statements on a wedding day... and cake toppers help tell that theme or story! From nautical to quirky, Etsy and the internet have it all, and we're showcasing it today.

Because I'm all about that cake, 'bout that cake. All toppers.
