This Is Why You Can’t Wedding Cake Without a Topper

Thistle and Lace Wedding Decor and Founder

You already know this, so probably don’t need a reminder… but JUST IN CASE. Here’s the scoop: your wedding day is a very special occasion, all about you and your spouse-to-be. As such, every element of every pre-during-and-post wedding event should be personalized as much as possible, so that couples can share their unique love story with all their VIPs. And for us, that means all the nitty-gritty nuptials details. The little things that guests sneak peeks of at all of your soirees and say ‘whoa, they didn’t just wing this, this wedding was soooo well-thought-out!’ We like when they come in wood, too… As in Thistle and Lace’s large variety of customizable wooden items such as bespoke cake toppers, gorgeous table numbers, table, chair and wall signs that add to reception decor, and luxurious alternative guest books that are wayyyy more than just a collection of guests’ signatures, they’re beautifully-fashioned keepsakes that are worthy of being displayed in a couple's home for years to come.

Of course, we’re huge fans of the company’s delightful decor, but since we all consistently die for creative cake shots, we can’t help but ❤️❤️❤️ the cake toppers most of all. They're the sweetest!

Now, at the end of the day, not every guest goes in hard on wedding cake, but we can 100p guarantee that every guest can appreciate that trademark touch on cakes meant for tying the knot. Not sure you need one? Well, just hold up, we think we can get you there….

Thistle and Lace Custom Cake Topper And So the Adventure Begins

They’re not just rustic.

It’s easy to fall prey to the misconception that all wooden design details are rustic and homespun. Sure, they can be, but Thistle and Lace also stays up-to-date with trends, so you can choose from their OG elegant botanical and rustic designs, or go for something more modern, geometric, Art Deco, or celestial-themed. Thistle and Lace handcrafts unique pieces that take your wedding decorations to the next level, and you can work one-on-one with their in-house designer to create unique wedding details that will absolutely get people talking and make everyone envious.

They can be colorful.

Moving right on from the last point, if you’re NOT into the raw wooden look, you can opt for something a little more whimsy (with color). Thistle and Lace offers a crazy wide variety of colors to choose from to perfectly match any desired wedding palette. Their unique selection of metallic or glittery wood finishes includes different luxurious shades of gold, perfect for any vintage or classic wedding. Their lustrous rose gold, blush, and champagne shades are the ultimate accent colors for garden, boho or tropical weddings. Their timeless and crisp silver and black options are must-haves for modern, elegant, and celestial weddings. And for the true fans of rustic, you can go all-natural with their sanded wood option for rustic weddings or try the DIY option to add your own finishing touches (this is budget-friendly, too).

Thistle and Lace Custom Cake Toppers

They’re a sweet way to commemorate every step.

Not only every step, but every tier shed along the way! Whether you’re having an engagement party, your bridal shower, your bachelorette, celebrating your wedding day (at last) or capping off your ‘I Do’ journey with a post-nuptials brunch that can only be finished with cake, you can always make the occasion more festive with tasty and playful props. From “I Said Yaaas” to “Bride to Be,” “We Da Best” to “Adventure Awaits,” the sentiments are so charming - and the personalized first or last name shout outs are great for grooms, because every bride has at least one thing with her married name on full display. Now he can have his cake [topper] and eat it too! And once the wedding day is over, there are always anniversary cake toppers to collect and even ones for milestone birthdays, so the love affair with Thistle and Lace can keep on keepin’ on.

They live well beyond the 1st year anniversary.

Apart from being amazingly photogenic for those cake cutting pictures, the handcrafted cake toppers that Thistle and Lace furnish - just for you - are super durable, because they’re made from sustainable, high-quality wood. Decorating for the wedding day itself is simple and stunning, but you can even display these keepsakes later in your home, so that you can cherish and relive your wedding day long after the double or triple decker desserts been polished off (and even after you’ve shared a few bites of that saved-for-the-anniversary top tier, which should obviously reprise your topper’s role again, if only for a few memorable Instagram snaps). We love that Thistle and Lace customers have even used their custom cake toppers as Christmas tree toppers! That creativity takes the 🍰 - AREWERITE?

“Wow, not only do I LOVE the cake topper, the customer service was amazing!! I was worried that the topper might not arrive in time for my engagement party and the shop owner kept in contact with me to make sure I would have a topper for my party. She emailed me immediately after I expressed my concerns, which put me at ease. I will be ordering as much as possible from this shop in the future, I love supporting small businesses and this shop and owner completely delivered in all aspects. Five stars for sure!”

“It was the PERFECT cake topper for our beach wedding reception! So good that we are going to use it to be part of our Christmas tree topper as well. Thank you so much for not only the amazing cake topper, but the exceptional customer service and speedy delivery!”

“The customer service was perfection! Speedy communication (key for this last minute bride), very clear description, gave thoughtful guidance and I could tell this would be a quality product by the way I interacted her and the way she helped me through the process. Very fast delivery and arrived in perfect condition. We needed to dress up a simple cake and this was the perfect touch! High quality and very classy."
