Wedding Cake Toppers...Oh My!!!

My future daughter-in-law is planning a quick wedding (only five weeks to be exact). I love how girls have their own taste. Her style is all her own. I wanted to get a cake topper for her as a keepsake. I was able to buy my daughter's, and it was fun to be able to do.
My wedding cake topper was picked out and purchased by my mother-in-law.
We had a quick wedding (21 years ago), and she graciously did our reception.
She did the cake, the topper, the decorating, the hosting. It was lovely.
And I treasure my wedding couple.

So, I have a question.
If you could pick, or re-pick a perfect wedding cake topper what would you pick?
And what did you have on your cake?

This one is similar to my daughter's.

If I was to choose something today, it would probably be doves.

Simple and sweet

This is what my daughter could have chosen, its almost what they wore.

Out of all these (and more) choices, she knew exactly what she wanted.

Too many choices. I like the porcelain ones. The doves are nice also. I would want something classic that I could display.

It is a toss up between #5, 11 and 20. Can't wait to see which one she liked. My cake topper was wedding bells. Not much to choose from 17 yrs ago on a budget. I actually picked it out and paid for it too! lol

Happy VTT!

I didn't have a topper or a cake to put it on, but I love the "simple and sweet" and any of the doves. They're really all so pretty though. Hmmm. . . can't wait to see what your future daughter-in-law chose! :)

I bet she picked the letters, they seem to be really popular now. I would have like to have the cowboy one. Hubby wore a black hat with his white tux! But I had a plastic heart with silk flowers. I had just started crafting and did all my flowers myself ~ couldn't afford the real ones!

I didn't have a cake topper either. I couldn't choose just one, they are all so pretty.

Add me in!!
Best advice? I had a friend that would have hubby call on his way home, and everyone got excited and tided up before he came home. (Had another friend that did just the opposite-really made a difference)

Hey!
Thanks for commenting!
Love the advice, what a great idea!

All the cake toppers you have are beautiful! I had one custom made and it had my husbands AF uniform on it!

WOW! My daughter just got her cake designed I have no idea if we need a topper? I am such a FAIL at mother of the bride. I had a crystal replica of the LDS temple we were married in. My Mom bought it. I love these--I have no idea how you would choose!

Lisa Loo said...

Oh--and I have been out of commenting commission for awhile so I think I missed something--I didn't know there was a wedding in your future--I'll keep reading--maybe I just missed it.
