@ashlee1214:  That’s silly, lol. Why exactly is she upset that he is wearing the cap and jersey in the topper?

I’m not from the US, so perhaps that’s the problem here, but… I don’t understand?  What is controversial about this?  How is it demeaning?

ETA: And I really love it!  It’s so adorable!  I just think that perhaps I’m missing some of the symbolism.

ETA2: Oh, is it just that’s it’s non-traditional?  Sorry, I’m reading too much into things.  How odd to be in an uproar over that.  No, it’s great, you guys made an excellent choice!

@ashlee1214: I think its very cute and looks really well made! I love it. A lot of people go a less traditional route with cake toppers these days and weddings are all about personal touches. She will get over it.

Does she think the “H” sign you’re making is making you look like you’re rocking out? HAHA!  I love it personally.

It’s super cute!  I wouldn’t worry about what your mom thinks- she’ll come around.

I think it’s a really creative topper and the doggies are adorable. She’s maybe thinking it looks a little gangster to be making that sign; sounds like a bit of a generational thing. Just explain it’s the girl equivalent to wearing the H shirt.

HUH? I think it’s cute and super fun. It’s totally “now” to do something really personal and awesome with your cake topper. She needs to calm down!

I think it’s really cute!  I love touches like this in a wedding where the couple’s personallity really shines through.

This may be a good time to say “Okay Mom, that’s nice, we’ll take that into consideration.”

Tell her if the cake topper is the biggest issue she has to worry about, she’s a lucky lady. 🙂

I love it!
