The Prettiest Cake Toppers for a Summer Wedding

The Prettiest Cake Toppers for a Summer Wedding
Shop Story

It’s a tiny touch, but the wedding cake topper can be a major expression. As weddings get increasingly creative, the cake topper can fully reflect your personality or the theme of your wedding. Cake toppers for summer weddings are particularly fun because they can include beachy, bohemian, woodsy, floral and more fun motifs. We especially love cake toppers that can be kept as a keepsake after the big day, whether in a frame or under a glass cloche. Here are some of our favorite wedding cake toppers from Amazon, Etsy, Michaels and more.
