    I think the detail is quite good but to be honest, I don’t like the whole imagery of a bride dragging a reluctant groom along behind her. It strikes a somewhat stereotypical note that I’ve always been uncomfortable with.

    Still, it’s your cake-topper and your choice so if you and your FI are happy with it then that’s all that matters.

    As the PP said, I don’t love the theme but the execution is good.

    [content moderated for snark] I agree with PP the stereotype of a woman forcing a man into marriage is not something I would want at my wedding, and while it’s cute that you want to incorporate something that’s important to your fiance, tree work isn’t really the most fitting thing to have on your wedding cake… If you like the cake topper, and you’re happy with it, why ask stranger’s opinions? I agree with PP though that it was made well.

    I was never a fan if that “theme” of cake topper (the dragging, not the tree service) but i think it’s nice you are working personalized elements into it.

    It’s not my favorite, but to each their own.

    Like other PPs have said, I’m not a huge fan of the “bride dragging the groom” type of toppers, but every couples’ relationship is different and the topper may mean something different from one relationship to the next.  That being said, I think the details on it are amazing.

    It’s comical. I smiled upon viewing it. I think it will definitely add some comic relief during such an emotional day. I’m already thinking about how I can add more humor on my wedding day, otherwise I will be crying all of my make-up off, lol.

    The quality is great. I love the details they put in it. I think it’s ready to be glued together. 

    I’m not usually a fan of this cake topper. However, because your personalized version has details that are so specific to you and your fiancée, I like it. To me, it’s not saying that he’s reluctant to get married and you’re forcing him to do it, it’s saying that he loves his job and he has to be torn away from it sometimes. The topper features his two passions lol; there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s a funny take on reality — nothing bad.

    I hope the tone of some of the other comments doesn’t make you rethink your choice. Your topper is well done, personal, and funny; that’s what matters.

    I think it’s cute! And if it represents you and your FI then go for it! I didn’t initally take it as a picturing a reluctant groom, more as someone who is passionate about what he does and just has to be torn away from it once in a while.

    BTW, what does the helmet say?

    Damiansmum10:  Usually when people see the “dragging” cake topper they chuckle. I doubt ANYONE takes it very seriously! I sure wouldnt. I would think that they are a funny couple who likes to laugh. I think it is great that you made it your own with the axe/shrubs.
