PERSONALIZED WEDDING CAKE TOPPERS ARE ALL THE RAGE, especially since you can get just about any style of cake topper custom made, from elegant monograms to silly, humorous designs that reflect your personality. It’s so much more fun than those mass-produced couples seen on top of every wedding cake in past decades.

“Several years ago, the trend was monograms. Then the popular thing was blinged-out monograms,” says Jenny Orsini, owner and creative director of Jenny Orsini Events in Berkeley Heights. “Now when couples get cake toppers, they’re usually custom figurines that reflect the couple and their interests or personalities. Most of our clients choose toppers that are fun and full of flair—and in some cases, raunchy! Hey, to each their own!”

Other fun options we’ve seen include depictions of pets, fun phrases, rustic details, succulents and superheroes. Yes, Wonder Woman can make an appearance at your wedding.
