Let your sweet masterpiece create lasting memories by choosing one of the selections below.

 

Finding the Best Fall Wedding Cake Toppers

 

Tips:

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

 

Cost:

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.

 

 

Color:

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.

 

 

Style:

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.
