Non-Traditional Handmade Wedding Cake Toppers

This cake is topped with a Custom Wooden Star House Tree with Personalized Plus Heart Topper, $42.00 from Star House

Since you’re reading Poptastic Bride, it’s a given that those generic ceramic wedding cake toppers just won’t do for you, am I right? This is why I scoured various online sources for whimsical handmade and unique wedding cake toppers, all of which can be customized to suit your themed wedding. (And nope, there are none of those ubiquitous Precious Moments, or *gasp* Bobblehead toppers, on this list).

Because of the love and craftsmanship that go into these works of art, I believe they will truly make beautiful and meaningful keepsakes of your wedding day. Enjoy looking through my selection below because I sure did have fun sourcing them out!

(Not Your Traditional) Bride and Groom Cake Toppers

These cute wooden Kokeshi doll-style wooden toppers by Lollipop Workshop also caught my eye. I like that the faces, skin color, hair and other features of the toppers can be customized in a pleasant, cartoony fashion to resemble the bride and groom.
