DIY might seem like a daunting concept when it comes to your wedding decor—and trust us, there are some things you could totally do yourself, and others you should leave to the pros. Calligraphing 150 (or more) wedding invitation envelopes for example, isn't for everyone. But DIYing a single cake topper that can be kept as a special keepsake for years to come? Ah, yes. That's much better.

From rustic, natural toppers to unique cartoon creations, get inspired by these awesome DIY wedding cake topper ideas.
