Trends in wedding cake toppers have grown leaps and bounds from the boring stiff duo we're accustomed to seeing.  You know the kind, a bride and groom in formal attire, smiles painted onto plastic faces.  Fortunately, the options these days offer really cool alternatives to the cookie cutter statues of the past.  It has become increasingly popular for couples to show off their personalities by topping their wedding cakes with unique, fun and charming figurines.

Trends in wedding cake toppers have grown leaps and bounds from the boring stiff duo we're accustomed to seeing.  You know the kind, a bride and groom in formal attire, smiles painted onto plastic faces.  Fortunately, the options these days offer really cool alternatives to the cookie cutter statues of the past.  It has become increasingly popular for couples to show off their personalities by topping their wedding cakes with unique, fun and charming figurines.

Comical 

The options are aplenty for those who share a quirky sense of humour.  Perhaps the groom is a self-proclaimed couch potato.  There's actually a topper which features a dishevelled groom lounged in a recliner, remote, game controller, TV and all!  The bride stands nearby, with her arms crossed and an exasperated look on her face.  Maybe the bride is a take charge kind of gal.  There are toppers featuring the bride wearing her groom's pants as he stands in his underwear, or a bride dragging her groom to the altar.  Remember the guy who updated his Facebook status during his wedding ceremony?  The "Cell Phone Fanatic" topper would have been perfect for him!  Always a conversation piece, a comical topper is an excellent choice for a playful couple.

Sports-Themed

If the bride and groom share love for a sport there's a nice selection of cake toppers to showcase their enthusiasm for it.  If baseball is their passion there's a really cool topper featuring a groom getting ready to pitch a ball while his bride stands poised with a baseball bat.  Football fans may like the figurine of a groom carrying his bride piggy-back with a football tucked under his arm.  There are grooms in hockey gear, carrying a golf bag or playing with a soccer ball, and a cheering bride with a megaphone and foam finger.  The love for a sport is often something a couple has in common, yet they don't want to turn their reception into a pep rally.  Using a sports-themed cake topper is a great way to incorporate their passion in a fun, subtle way. 

Romantic

Weddings are all about romance, and a cake topper can enhance the emotion in a number of ways.  If seeking a classy, elegant figurine you don't have to look far.  One of the most popular toppers on the market today features a groom lifting his bride, as they gaze adoringly into each other's faces.  A couple sharing a kiss beneath an umbrella or a bride and groom cruising off into the sunset both offer a bit of whimsy.  Another gives a touch of spice as the couple envelop one another in a passionate embrace.  Whether it's charming, whimsical, sexy or sweet, a romantic cake topper is a great, classic choice.

Themed

Themed weddings have risen to popularity in recent years.  For a destination wedding there are a wide variety of beach-inspired toppers, from a casual bridal couple in bare feet, to a simply elegant white starfish.  The bride and groom having a Western wedding may enjoy the figurine of a cowboy dancing with his lovely bride, or a bride who is roping in her groom.  Love-birds, fairy-tales, Hollywood, hearts, Celtic, Asian, they're all fun, fashionable themes which have toppers to suit.

Monogram

A really hot trend in cake toppers is the monogram, and it's a trend that's here to stay.  The use of an initial or monogram represents a couple's newly shared name, and the options are abundant.  For a modern sleek look, a simple scroll or block letter in brushed silver is a classy choice.  Add some flash with an initial covered completely in coloured rhinestones or Swarovski crystals.  Monograms match any style, colour or theme, and provide a memorable symbol of a couple's new life together.

With so many options in cake toppers today it's difficult to narrow the decision down to one.  Perhaps this is why these fun figurines are making appearances at places other than just the cake, such as gift and wishing well tables.  Another trend which is rapidly growing is the use of two wedding cakes.  People have different tastes!  The groom may love chocolate, while the bride loves red velvet, and it's becoming extremely popular to give them both what they want - after all, it's their day, why compromise on cake?  In this event, both the bride and groom can select a topper for their individual cake, and it can be quite fun to see their choices! 
Whether aiming for funny, themed, charming or traditional there's a great selection of cake topper figurines to suit.
