Customizing Non-Custom Wedding Cake Toppers

A lot of people use custom wedding cake toppers, but they can get expensive. This wedding cake topper was purchased from a store, not made custom for the couple, so it was more affordable. But they still made it individual to themselves.

The bride was Russian, and the couple likes to travel, so they got a topper that had luggage included with it.

They then altered the luggage so that the tag on the suitcase said "From Russia With Love." Adding that tagline to the topper made it personal to the couple, and was a cute addition to the cake. Changing one or two things about a stock topper can make it into a custom topper, so don't be afraid of painting them, writing on them, or adding things to them.
