When it comes to weddings, there are few things that creep me out more than those old-fashioned, plastic bride and groom figurines that your parents most likely had perched on the top tier of their wedding cake (I know my parents did). I can’t quite put my finger on it, but there’s something about those stiff, generic-looking figures that just rubs me the wrong way.

Luckily, you’d be hard-pressed to find one of those vintage statuettes atop any modern day wedding cake. In fact, these days cake toppers are just one of many elements that couples are choosing to get creative with.

We’ve seen adorable little banners, sparkly “Mr. & Mrs.” signs, monograms carved out of wood, bent wire toppers, and just about everything in between.

To get you started on the hunt for the perfect cake topper, we scoured Etsy and pulled together 10 of our favorites.

And just in case this isn’t enough inspiration, we suggest you take a look at the 50,000 other options Etsy has to choose from.
