      Hello to you.Im sure there are books on making different topper types.
      I suggest going to a local craft shop, buying anything you like and then try differnt things out.Its amazing what you can learn by mucking about with glitter and glue.

            Hi Helen,
            Welcome to the Forum!
            I met someone once who had made incredible cake toppers from beads and wire - nice and light and very easy to attach to the cake!
            Good luck with it all - it sounds like a big project! If it gets too much I have a friend who makes invites/placesettings/orders of service etc bespoke for weddings.
            Try a new way every day and work becomes play!

              Welcome to the forum
              I make cards so any advice you need then feel free to get in touch and I will try to help. There is also someone on here (can't remember who though!) who makes amazing cake toppers - she might be able to help you with that side of things.
              Good luck with all the wedding planning - I've just done some invitations for a friend and it was hectic and I didn't even have to worry about the getting married part!
