Deer-ly Beloved

Another clever option is this cute deer couple, complete with bow tie and veil. Find this sweet pair at MorganTheCreator's Etsy shop.

Berry Good

For a wedding cake adorned with greenery, a delicious pile of juicy blackberries is the perfect cake topper alternative.

Keep It Simple

If you're going for a rustic vibe, sometimes basic is the best way to go, as was the case with this simple cake that features two unpainted wooden peg people and DIY bunting.

Mini Me(s)

If you're looking for something a little more customized, consider painting your peg people to match your wedding day duds. And don't worry if art isn't your thing. You can always buy a set of custom dolls from Goose Grease.

Keep It Classic

Of course, there's nothing wrong with going the traditional route. This gorgeous cake incorporates color by topping a wooden stand with moss, flowers and champagne grapes.

Country Chic

If your style is more Western than beachy, these mini log chairs might be more up your alley. You can find these cute cake toppers at MorganTheCreator's Etsy shop.

Clay Critters

Learn to make your own custom wedding cake toppers in any shape you like using polymer clay. Try two darling mice as seen here, or invent your own cake topper masterpiece. Get directions here.

Put a Bird on It

A darling pair of love birds wearing a top hat and veil are a sweet addition to this three-tiered amaretto cake.

Inseparable Insects

Don't bug out. This cute grasshopper duo is just a plastic version of its happily-hopping counterpart, and it would make the perfect out-of-the-box topper for a nature-loving couple.

Collected Cones

Two pinecones dressed up with a veil and top hat were a frugal and seasonal addition to this winter wedding.

Party Flags

A simple project that makes a big (and sparkly!) statement, these easy-to-make party flags from Something Turquoise are the perfect cake toppers to really get guests in the celebratory mood.

Natural Beauty

A true Southern staple, white hydrangeas look just as stunning on top of a wedding cake as they do in a bouquet.

Delicate Details

And if one flower option simply won't do, take a cue from this romantic cake, which is adorned with ranunculus, cymbidium orchids and miniature tea roses.

Happy Tiers

Two special cupcakes are set apart with flowers on top of this dramatic cupcake tower.

Exceptionally Orange

To incorporate the wedding's color scheme, simple orange ranunculus adorned this stunning cake. 

It's Bean Lovely

Bonus: This groom's cake is topped with coffee beans the groom roasted himself as a nod to his favorite treat.

All That Glitters

A glitzy "Mr & Mrs" sign adds a little glam to this rustic wedding cake, while delicate burlap flowers really play up the country theme.

The Hunt Is Over

Bonus: This groom's cake features a few of his favorite activities: hunting and fishing.
