    They look wonderful. The only thing i could think to change would to add a nose where the glasses should sit on the groom’s face. Otherwise SPOT ON!!!  Great Job!!

    So freakin cool that you could do this ! I was going to say the bride needed her bling to match your dress, but you have that covered. Then I was going to mention the groom was missing his ring but I saw it in the back view. I like the fact that they have no faces, like those willowtree statues. BAKE IT !

    Those are so cute! I would add the nose tho and maybe a nose for the bride too.. shape the face to look more like they have eyes nose and mouth but you dont’ need to paint them on. Great work!!

    These are the willowtree statues without faces.

    I agree with @Allyser – I think they’re great, but might look better with some facial structure. Not color on the face, but noses and indents for the eyes and mouth and noses.

    Personally, I like the faces just the way they are.  I think you did an amazing job!  The hair looks fantastic…  I think the groom looks great, I wouldn’t change him.  The bride’s right arm looks a little thin in the upper arm region and her right shoulder maybe a little droopy.  Otherwise, perfect!

    I would thin out the arm a little bit holding the flowers and bring it down some.  And I like the faces the way they are.

    Wow, those are really, really awesome and you did a great job.  I would vote for faces, though….

    Gosh that is so cool!! The dress makes her look just like you IRL!! Super cute. I don’t know, I’m kinda on the fence about the faces… the example with the other clay couple you made is cute, but like you said “cartoony” and I don’t think the topper people are nearly as cartoony. They are much more life-like, so I wonder how a cartoon face would look. Would it be reversible if you did it and showed us pics?

    They look great! I would stay away from adding faces. Lots of times it changes it so much and you might not be happy with it anymore. I like the simplicity of the people without faces. I saw that you mentioned that something seemed off about the groom… maybe his head seems a little small? That’s the only thing I could figure. I don’t know what your guy looks like, but maybe the head is too small of the clay person. Other than that, I wouldn’t change a thing!!
