CouplesOnCakes.com Customized Cake Toppers
How long does it take to complete my customized topper?
Generally it takes 1-3 weeks to customize your cake topper once ordered, but can take longer depending on the changes. We do offer an expedited cake topper customization service, as well as expedited shipping if you need a topper in a hurry!
Can you make physical alterations to my topper (example: bald groom, curly hair, strapless gown)?
Although we try our best to match a topper to The Bride and Groom we can only alter the color of the toppers in their current state. No type of physical alteration can be made.
What colors are available for customization?
We have customized thousands of unique cake toppers for many unique customers. We have customized topper colors from simple browns, blondes, reds, and grays to more unique colors such as pink and green. Yes, one of our Bride's had pink hair! Awesome! I guess what we are saying is: No COLOR will be denied :)
Do you have swatches or color samples I can choose from?
Currently we do not offer swatches for viewing. We work closely with the customer to ensure your customization request is met as best as possible. Online color swatches of available customization colors is something we are working on for the very near future.
Can I add facial hair on the Groom?
We can add a beard, mustache, or goatee on most of our toppers however there are a select few that makes this type of customization unavailable. Mostly due to positioning on the Bride and Groom. Please ask!
I'm paying extra to customize this topper, will the work last the life of the Topper?
We understand the cake topper used on your special day is something you will cherish for many years to come. We use the highest quality paints and design supplies. Your customized topper will look amazing for many more years to come.
If I have a special request or a unique idea can I ask if it is possible?
Sure! With the exception of physical changes to the topper itself, we would love to discuss your ideas and make your cake topper even more unique. For inquiries please email email@example.com.
