Ruffles of buttercream, edible metallic foil, hand-painted sugar flowers: Such accents add up to a beautiful wedding cake, the star of the reception. This traditional confection is an artful statement that punctuates the wedding with an aesthetic exclamation mark. Wedding cake toppers? You can bet they’ll be noticed. Although they’re a little detail, they pack a big punch. To help you get inspired, we’ve listed the most creative fall-inspired cake toppers around from Etsy, Amazon and Walmart. Let your sweet masterpiece create lasting memories by choosing one of the selections below.
Finding the Best Fall Wedding Cake Toppers
Fall wedding cake toppers take on the spirit of the season with pumpkins (in orange or ivory), Halloween themes (bride-and-groom skeletons in a getaway car), bird motifs (including turkeys for Thanksgiving) and more. We love a topper that, like a tiny mascot, reflects your and your fiancé’s personalities, whether it highlights a hobby (camping) or makes a statement true to the season (autumn woodland animals).
How to Choose a Unique Fall Wedding Cake Topper
We confess: We’re of the splurge mindset when it comes to wedding cake toppers. You might not see it now, but in future years a wedding cake topper, encased in a glass cloche, can sit on your mantel and bring back a flood of memories. If you’re going the personalized route — having an artisan create diminutive models of you and your beloved, for example — you can expect to pay from $35 for a tiny bride and groom made from wooden pegs up to $100 – $225 for a more exact model made of clay.
Fall includes an array of traditional colors — rust, burnt orange, sunflower yellow, cream and chocolate brown. You really can’t go wrong with these harmonious combinations. Such warm tones reflect the season and its changing colors of nature — and don’t forget deep ruby red if you want to amp up the naturalistic look of a topper.
Any style works in a cake topper for fall, from sincere to humorous (ahem, skeletons in a getaway car!). If your cake topper features florals, think about flowers that bloom in fall shades, such as sunflowers, roses, dahlias, mums and Gerbera daisies.
Material & Other Features:
Rustic materials, such as wood, pine cones or grape vines, infuse a fall wedding cake topper with that autumn vibe. Mini hay bales? Yes, please! Cute little pumpkins? Definitely! Fall is a glorious season from which to seek inspiration, so go for it with complete enthusiasm.
