Top 10 Hipster Wedding Cake ToppersIf you don't know already, hipsters are, as defined by the consistently useful Urban Dictionary, "a subculture of men and women typically in their 20's and 30's that value independent thinking, counter-culture, progressive politics, an appreciation of art and indie-rock, creativity, intelligence, and witty banter." This subculture has gained increasing traction over the years, effecting change in mainstream values and trends. It comes as no surprise that it has opened up a whole new world of increasingly popular wedding trends (as seen in Refinery 29's info graphic featured on the left). In fact, you will often find that when we feature "twists" on different wedding traditions such as wedding cakes and cake toppers, that it is the hipster community that has inspired this push on tradition. So this week, we are highlighting those wedding cake toppers that would be at home at a hipster wedding! The following cake toppers take on this challenge of pushing against tradition while also being a part of tradition: many of which take on a vintage feel that goes in par with the Hipster tendency to search thrift shops and vintage styles.
