If you’re a fun-loving couple with a sense of humor, you might want to consider having a funny topper for your wedding cake. It personalizes your wedding, gives your guests a good smile, and makes a nice keepsake for years to come.
There are so many different categories of humorous cake toppers — ones with animals, the “ball and chain” theme, and ones that revolve around the couples’ hobbies and interests.
Here are ten different toppers I found, with additional links at the bottom to still more funny wedding cake toppers.
I’ll be honest — I don’t personally find the whole “groom with a ball and chain” concept to be very funny. But apparently a lot of people do, so here’s a good cake topper for them. It is made of plastic and is just over four inches tall. The bride’s key and the chain attached to the ball actually dangles, which is a nice touch. It does offer different options for the bride’s hair color, but you could probably use acrylic paint to modify it if you wanted to.

I guess “getting the groom away from his beloved screen” is another theme that’s growing in popularity. The reason this photo looks “cut off” is because it is. This topper is, in a sense, only one half of a set. You can purchase an “exasperated bride” figurine to go with it if you like. Or, of course, you could use each topper separately, or combine them with other cake toppers, if you prefer.
Amazon reviewer TamHS says, “My fiancee and I were looking for something that didn’t have the bride dragging the groom or the groom chained up. We wanted people to know we were happy! We also didn’t want the traditional bride and groom topper because it was too simple. When I found this one, I knew that it would be the best fit for our goofy personalities. And at the wedding, we sure got some laughs out of it, and it was also a great conversation starter.”
One thing that’s worth noting about this cake topper is that, from the front, it just looks like your basic elegant cake topper, so you can position it accordingly depending on which guests you want to see what.
If the two of you are James Bond fans or just feel that this captures your personalities, this spy cake topper is another funny choice that your guests will love. It measure six and a half inches tall.
Amazon reviewer Hwansik Kim described both the pros and cons of this cake topper, which they describe as “Classy, but Funny”:
We got this for our wedding cake after seeing a friend who had it at her wedding. My husband is a professional shooter, so it really added a bit of our personalities to the cake. it is the perfect size! It was on a 3 tier cake, and looked perfect. The only draw back is that there are no other hair colors to choose from. However, you can change it yourself with a small paint brush and paint, if you want them to look like you.

If you’re a bride who wants to show that she’s in charge, then you might appreciate this porcelain, hand-painted topper where the bride literally “wears the pants.”
Of course, if you have a bride wearing the pants in the family, that must mean that the groom … is without pants, so you can get this topper to go with it. (Unfortunately, they are sold separately, even though, personally, I think packaging the two of them in a set would make more sense.)
This whimsical cake topper features a dark-haired groom putting his foot down to stop his runaway blonde bride. It is four inches tall with a base just over three inches.
“This figurine is just too funny!” says Amazon reviewer Darkwillow. “We used at our wedding and everybody laughed when they see it. Quality is very good and the details of the two figurines are fine. If you want, you can even color them (I added glasses to the groom to mimic my husband).”
Fun Cake Toppers with Animals as the Bride and Groom
I couldn’t resist making an entire section of animal cake toppers. They are just too cute! From bears to penguins, frogs to love birds, these toppers feature brides and grooms from all species.
This adorable figurine is one of a large collection of Enesco Heart of Christmas Mice Figurines, which you can see more of here. This is probably originally intended to be more of a decoration and collector’s item, but I think it would wonderfully as a cake topper as well. It’s crafted from high-quality stone resin with crystal accents and stands just a hair under two inches tall.
