i previously posted about my personalized cake topper with also having the thought of adding a beauty and the beast figurine. that last post wouldnt let me add a poll so i’ve opened up a new thread.
i dont want people to think im saying my fiance is a beast!
so here is a PIC HEAVY post now that my cake topper came in the mail. first, here’s a photo of the cake topper plus all 3 beauty and the beast options just so everything can be seen all at once:
POLL!! What option would you pick? Any options weird? I’m leaning toward putting no beast.
Forget about the characters and just use the personalized one.
Thanks for your input!

I think if you want to use any characters, I would use both. After all, the topper says “Mr and Mrs” not either/or.

I picked both Option 3 and 4. I personally think it would look a lot better without the characters (Option 4), but if you really do want to use them, then I think you need to use both. Using just Belle would be like having a wedding cake with just a bride on top – it would be a little strange.

definitely agree with the other posts that you probably should choose one or the other. I would maybe try having the personalized one on top with maybe (country) Belle and the Beast hiding from each other on the sides of the cake, so it looks like their playing. That way the top doesn’t look so cluttered. Are you doing any other momentos to Beauty & the Beast?

I don’t think you should use the characters at all. On the one hand, if you use just beauty it looks like a one lady show, where clearly a wedding is about two people. If you use the beast (alone or w/ bell) it does seem kind of life you’re calling your FI a beast & yourself a beauty.
I’d stick with just the glass monogram or looking into different options if it’s important to you to have a figurine.

@Koala Bear: no, nothing else beauty and the beast related. i’ve just been obsessed with belle forever so in my mind even before i was engaged i was thinking a belle cake topper haha. did i mention my pillow case is beauty and the beast? LOL i dont care how old i am.
but i dont HAVE to have them up there. i’m open to everyone’s idea of just the square cake topper too.
bumping! for more votes. 🙂

I like the idea of having them at the base of the cake, so not with the topper but more as decoration.
Maybe you could find a figurine of the Beast once he becomes a human/Prince again? Then you can still have Belle but it’s maybe not quite as mean to your FI haha. Although, it depends on the guy, maybe he doesn’t mind at all having Beast there as ‘him’ 🙂
Might be hard to track down though…

@clairebear000: oo cute idea! haha yea he actually keeps saying I should do the beauty and the beast and i’m like ‘but wont people think i’m saying you’re a beast?’ and he’s like ‘nahhh.’ hahaha. i think you’re right though it might be hard to find those figurines (and at a good price).
the real beauty and the beast cake toppers were SOOO expensive. i just got these at the disney store for 12 bucks with a whole set of characters.
