About Wedding Cake Toppers
Wedding cakes, in some form or another (such as breads or pies), have been around for several thousand years. The wedding cake topper, however, is a relative newcomer to the wedding celebration and didn't become common in America until the late 1800s.
The first wedding cake toppers were not commercially produced, but instead were individually made by family, friends, or a perhaps a crafty baker. Most of them probably weren't figurines of small people: Instead, they were things like flowers, bells, or other decorative touches for the top of the wedding cake.

It wasn't too long, however, before wedding cake toppers became small figurines representing the bride and groom. The first commercially produced wedding cake toppers typically showed a bride and groom decked out in formal wedding attire, side-by-side and often arm-in-arm or holding hands.

As time moved forward and wedding cake toppers that were figurines representing the bride and groom became the norm at many weddings, the demand for cake toppers that more personally represented the happy couple began to grow.
Today, while wedding cake toppers still might show couples in formal dress, the couple's personal style might be shown instead. For example, for cowboys, cowgirls, and horse lovers getting married the couple on top of the wedding cake might be shown wearing cowboy boots, with Western accents in their clothing, and/or with accessories such as horses, ropes, horseshoes, or other decorative touches indicating their common love for a cowboy or ranching lifestyle.
