In most cases you can choose a style you like and then the company that makes these types of cake toppers will create a unique and customized cake topper for you using your own individual initials. This way offers you loads of design choices and styles and then you just pick the one that most suits you and your sweetie. It is also a fairly simple process. For example, do you like the one with the initials in the circle or heart better? Initials only or full names? Mr and Mrs included - yes or no? Super fancy font or something plainer?

And do you want them to be blinged out with rhinestones and gems, in gold or silver or maybe a more basic black matte finish? Which brings us to color choices.
