Do I need a wedding cake topper?

No! You absolutely do not need one. I think they’re a fun addition to cakes, but wedding cakes are beautiful on their own. You can also ask to have some flowers to be placed on your cake instead of a topper, or have some sugar flowers decorating your wedding cake.

Wedding cake toppers do not have to be expensive! I decided two weeks before we left for our destination wedding that I wanted one. I got mine from Hobby Lobby for $4 and hot glued toothpicks into the back. Yep. I was a budget bride. In the end it didn’t matter anyway since I don’t think anyone even looked at the cake. 😂 

Michaels is another great alternative to find wedding cake toppers on a budget.

We also did not have a wedding reception or a photographer after the ceremony, so the photos of the cake didn’t really matter to me, either. But if photos are important and you want to have your cake table as a focal point for your wedding, it doesn’t hurt to draw attention to it – and it doesn’t have to cost a pretty penny, either!

How do I transport my cake topper?

Many cake toppers are fragile, which means they’ll need a little extra care if you’re travelling. For destination weddings, I would recommend packing it flat in something sturdy (if it’s a flat cake topper). I brought mine down in a file folder within a thick binder to prevent any crushing.

If your cake topper has some shape to it, be sure to pad it with tissue paper or bubble wrap, and inside a box if your luggage space allows for it. If it’s really fragile, consider bringing it with you in your carry-on!
