As weddings become more and more homogeneous, how does one add a personal touch? One new website is helping couples add a sweet detail to their nuptials (without the sweat required for a viral video): Lil' Cake Toppers offers personalized wooden representations of the bride and groom, complete with adorable unique characteristics of the couple, to grace the dessert.
Designer Esther Mun, 32, launched the site specifically for guests who can’t stand giving cash or "another impersonal pot and pan" as a wedding gift. Her creations, which range from $120 - $180, can incorporate multiple personal details, including the couple’s nationalities, style, jewelry, etc.
“It's OK to go through wedding magazines and blogs for inspiration,” said Mun. “But the best and most memorable weddings are ones where guests say, ‘That is sooo them.’ ”
