I ordered the letter "G" not knowing what it would look like since there is no examples. I just received it in the mail today and I am pleased with it. It is lower case however, and I wasnt aware that is how it would come, but I love it! I cant wait to use it on our July 11th wedding and then place it in our house. I think it will look great on our cake and I am sure others will agree. I am also glad I caught it while on sale, so it was a great deal! :)

I was really excited to get my "B" for the top of our cake. The "M" shown is really pretty and the other reviews were mostly positive. When our "B" arrived I was moderately impressed, but my fiance "Mr.B" said "Hon, it looks like a #13!". The letter B does look like a 13 because the bottom "bubble" of the B isn't connected to the straight part. If I had seen it before hand I wouldn't have ordered it. I think theknot should offer examples of all of the letters. If you're not sure you want to order this product check other websites, most offer examples of all the letters. Another reviewer mentioned that her G looked like a lower case g when it arrived. Most of the letters are really pretty, but a few are not what you'd expect. We're going to glue our 13 together so that it looks more like a B!

    This product is very cheap and thin and looks like a metal cookie cutter in person. We intended to use it as our wedding cake topper but will be looking for another option.

    Comments about The Knot Wedding Shop script initial cake topper:

    This topper is very cute. I bought it on sale, which I am very happy about because I am not sure that it is worth the list price. As other reviews have stated, it is not the hightest quality, but honestly, no one will be looking that closely, so I'm not too worried. I got the "M" and it is just as pictured. It did arrive fairly squished, but as another reviewer notied, it can easily be stretched out.

        I ordered the "M" and love it! I ordered before reading reviews and I was worried that it wasnt going to be what I wanted. It did come with the letter kind of squished together in the middle but all I had to do was pull it for a second and it was exactly what I wanted. I searched for an M that looked like this and I am very happy with what I purchased.

            I ordered the Z (if you search online you can find out what the rest of the letters look like, but theknot had the best price when it is on sale!) and could not be happier! I found it very interesting that someone reviewed that it was too small, because my only complaint was that it was a little too big for what I was looking for. I love the letter because it is classy and still pretty without being over the top.

            Will post a picture after the big day!

                  I don't know if it's b/c of the letter I needed, but I needed "M." When it arrived, you could barely tell what letter it was. IT was almost too scripty looking. The humps in the "M" were too close together. Too expensive as well...

                          My fiance and I love this topper! I was a little bit worried about the comments that said it was poorly made, but we got the H and it looks great. We love this topper especially since it stands on it's own (without a stake in the cake), so we can put it on a shelf or desk to display it after the wedding :)

                          This is one of the only toppers my fiance approved of (looks classy). I got it on sale, so was pretty pleased with the price. I would recommend if you like this for your wedding to wait for a sale. It's definitely smaller than they have it appear, but I got the M and it looks nice. Since I'm having 3 separate display cakes I'm going to use it on the smallest one, but if I had a larger tiered cake I probably would look for something bigger.

                          I ordered this thinking it was exactly what I was looking for. Although it is an attractive design, the C looks cheap and is leaning forward. It does not sit straight and I will not be able to use this on my cake. It was very upsetting for a bride on a tight budget to waste the money.

                            I thought this was so cute online, until I got it and saw it up close. I got the H, and it looks extremely cheap and tacky, not made well at all. It looked like one solid piece of cheap metal that someone just twisted up. I could do that at home, and it looks homemade- not the look I was going for!

                            I had read the other comments about it looking small in person and it really does. However, I am doing a cupcake stand with a 6 inch cake topper and I think its going to look perfect. I bought the "S" and it really looks nice. I don't think I would buy it for full price. I only think its a good deal on sale.

                              I ordered the "H" for this cake topper. We are having a cupcake tower w/ a 6" mini cake at the top. Our baker said we needed something less than 6" in diameter & this is perfect! It's sturdy & really cute in person. It stands just under 5" tall, so I don't know how it would work for a bigger cake. But for my purposes it will be great.

If you are having anything more then a 2 tier wedding cake DO NOT BUY. We are having a 5 tier wedding cake and it would have looked very awkward to have something so small. The picture makes the item seem a lot bigger then it actually is. Purchase with caution!

                                  I really liked this topper. I shopped around a lot - looking at the much more expensive silver toppers and in the end took a chance on this and when I got it - loved it. Simple and sleek and stood wonderfully on the top of the cake:)

                                    I brought the letter "N" for my cake. It is smaller than expected but from other reviews I knew it would be. We had a small 3 tiered cake. The "N" wasn't as nice as I hoped and it arrived late so we didn't get to use it. (They sent "M" first which was really nice) You couldn't tell which way was right side up with the "N". Good buy if you can catch it on sale. Not for the original price.

                                      Great Quality and the perfect size! It may be a little expensive at the regular price but I bought this while on sale, which is what I would recommend. I can't wait to see it on top of my wedding cake!

                                          I ordered the "W", and was very disappointed at the size. If you are having a destination wedding or private wedding with a very small wedding cake, this may work well. I am having a 5-tier cake, and this just is not going to work. I will be returning this tomorrow. Too tiny...

                                            I got this today and it is great. At first I thought it looked a little small and then I put it on the top tier of the stand it will be on for the cake and it is perfect. It also looks perfect on the shelf. It looks just as pictured and it is nice and shiney. I got it on sale..even better.

                                                The "O" definitely does not look like the picture. I was so disappointed when I got it in the mail. I cannot even use it, and have to buy another cake topper.

                                                    I loved the design and purchased for my daughter's wedding. She loved it....but someone else loved it too because it was gone after the reception that we had at a Hotel. I am reordering her another one because they planned to use it in their new home.

                                                        I decided to order this cake topper because of the great ratings it received. However, when mine arrived (2 weeks late) it resembled nothing of the letter B. It looked kind of like a small child twisted it together. I was completely disappointed and slightly relieved that it did not arrive on time. There is no way I would have put that on top of my cake. I'm sure other letters look fine, but avoid the B!

                                                            The W looked like an M upside down. It did not look good at all. I know they have the picture up now but if you want a W look somewhere else, you will get a M instead. The other letters look great and I even think the M looks nice but the W is horrible. I'm looking for a new topper.

                                                              I bought the "B" for our cake topper. I had read a review that said it looked more like the number 13 than a B. But I disagree. Ours looked perfect once it was on the cake! Also, bought it when it was on sale :) definately wait for a sale if you can

                                                                I just received my M last week [...] and think it is absolutely beautiful. It is the perfect size for the top of our cake. The only thing that could make it better is if the actual M portion was wider. In the picture the arms of the M (especially the V in the center) have space between them, whereas when I got it, it's very close together. But overall it's very pretty.
