From classy monograms to inexpensive wedding cake toppers, you'll find an interesting and unique way to top your wedding cake so you can put your own personal touch on your wedding cake.  Read on as we go over the most popular types of wedding cake toppers and where to buy them.

Where can I buy An Inexpensive Wedding Cake Top?

There are several different places where you can buy a cheap wedding cake topper.  Online stores offer a variety of wedding cake tops and you can usually find good prices online.  There are specialty cake topper stores online or you can also check out wedding supply or wedding favor stores online.  You can also find cake toppers at brick and mortar locations like cake supply stores, wedding supply stores, party stores and arts and crafts stores - though these stores don't usually offer a discount.

Types of Wedding Cake Tops

Floral Wedding Cake Toppers
Since flowers are such a big part of weddings, it's only natural that flowers would also make their way atop wedding cakes too.  Flowers as wedding cake toppers add natural beauty to wedding cakes and are ideal for any type of wedding that features flowers in other areas like the bride's bouquet or table centerpieces. Flower cake toppers can be created by a small tight bunch of blooms on the top of the cake or a group of flowers cascading down the wedding cake.

You can use either silk or real flowers as a wedding cake topper. If you use natural flowers, be sure to use varieties that will remain fresh without water for a few hours. You wouldn't want faded and wilting flowers on top of your wedding cake.

Monogram Wedding Cake Toppers
Monograms are everywhere in weddings these days and the top of the wedding cake is no exception. Monogram wedding cake toppers are an elegant way to show pride in the names of the bride and groom.  Wedding cake toppers featuring monograms are also a fine way to put a personal mark on your wedding reception. Monogram cake toppers generally feature the initial of the groom's last name (the bride's new last name), but they can also be a combination of the bride and groom's names.

You can use a monogram as your wedding cake topper in several different ways. The monogram can be created using spun sugar, flowers or you can purchase a monogram cake topper made from plastic or lightweight metal.

Humorous Wedding Cake Toppers

If you and your fiancé joke around a lot or want to loosen up the seriousness of your wedding, there are wedding cake toppers that will give a sense of comedy to your wedding reception. You can find lots of inexpensive wedding cake toppers that will make you giggle. Humorous cake toppers are available that feature the bride and groom climbing up the wedding cake, the bride fishing for the groom and even a cake topper where the bride drags the groom by the pant leg. Though they're not for every couple, if you and your fiancé have a fun sense of humor and want to lighten up your wedding reception, a funny wedding cake topper will do the trick.

Traditional Wedding Cake Toppers

There's something very grand about a wedding cake topped with the traditional bride and groom standing side by side. Traditional cake toppers give your wedding cake a very cute and retro look. If you think that you and your fiancé aren't exactly the traditional bride and groom, that doesn't mean that you can't use a traditional wedding cake topper. These days, there are different choices of brides and grooms in every color, shape and size.  For those couples who want to give their wedding cake a touch of classic appeal, a traditional wedding cake topper is just right.

With so many choices to top your wedding cake, you'll certainly  find a wedding cake topper that will go perfectly with your cake. Think about your personal wedding style and determine which topper – floral, monogram, humorous,  or traditional – is best to crown your wedding cake.
