When you’re picking out your wedding cake, you aren’t just checking for taste. Besides the flavor, you also need to plan out how it will look–and that includes the top of the cake.

Traditionally, cake toppers tend to represent the bride and groom. This usually means tiny bride and groom statues sat atop the tallest tier. While this is certainly a classic cake topper idea, it’s also a bit old-fashioned. If you want to impress guests with a more unique wedding cake topper, choose one of these popular new trends.
