Heart Wedding Cake Toppers
A classic symbol of romance with many variations, the heart is a popular wedding decoration. Many couples choose heart wedding cake toppers to add that classic beauty to their wedding cake.

A double heart wedding cake topper uses a single classic symbol to represent both the bride and groom. Double hearts can be found in simple porcelain toppers with graceful curves, and it is also a popular design for blown glass, wire, or crystal toppers. The hearts may be side by side, intertwined, or concentric, depending on the couple's design preferences.
Beach Wedding Cakes
A beach wedding cake isn't complete without a beach-themed cake topper, and a nautical heart is a romantic and sweet choice. Accented with shells, nets, and starfish, a delicate heart with a sea theme and aqua colors is perfect for beach-themed cakes.

Hearts and Couples
Bride and groom wedding cake toppers are still among the most popular choices to adorn wedding cakes, but a heart topper doesn't have to be a simple frame for the couple. An elegant and modern variation is for the couple to be sitting on the heart, dancing within it, or framing a heart shape through abstract swirls of the bride's gown or their interlocked arms.
Wedding hearts come in a variety of themes to match any couple's wedding motif, even a western wedding complete with cowboy hats and steel-toed boots. The rustic colors of this topper and the braided rope accents give it an elegant western touch.
A heart shaped cake topper doesn't need to have the heart as the central or largest shape in the figurine to convey the romance the shape represents. A simple, elegant couple with a heart balanced between them evokes an innocent appeal and hints at a very private, gentle romance.

These types of toppers can usually be personalized with simple icons or images, and after the wedding they become treasured keepsakes of this most romantic day.
A metal dragon themed heart topper is a unique and stunning option perfect for a Gothic or Halloween wedding.

If dragons aren't appropriate, similar cake toppers can be found with fairies, Celtic knots, and other themes.
Heart shaped picks with pearls, crystals or rhinestones can add beauty to a cake. What's more, this type of topper is easy to make by hand with some supplies from a local craft store.

Hearts and Doves
White doves are another popular symbol of wedding romance, innocence, and purity, and combining a pair of doves with a heart arch or background is a popular style of wedding cake topper. The doves may be in flight, at rest, or nuzzling one another in a gentle and caring pose.
