My fiancé’s passion is hockey. He watches it and plays on two teams. He originally wanted to have hockey themed tables but did not want to do the work so I told him I would just do table numbers to make it easy, and to fit our beach theme. Now I feel bad because he really wanted to include his passion in our wedding theme. I just didn’t know how to go about doing it and had / have so much to do that I took the easy route. So, I have spent hours researching hockey wedding stuff and I found a cake topper (pic. below). Do you think this is a cute idea?
I’m still looking for other subtle ways to include more jockey things, especially for his guests that are fans and also play. Any suggestions / ideas would be appreciated!

I think he will love it!

I love it. Seriously. I think those cake toppers are a blast and it injects some humor into the day.

It’s cute, but I don’t like that it’s all about him and his interests. What about you? I think I’d prefer a more balanced cake topper…but then, I’m just a nutty semi-feminist. =P

Silly, but kinda cute idea…….
I don’t know if you guys plan on including kids, or grownups that act and eat like kids…but what if you put that topper on your cake and next to the grooms cake serve up a bunch of unwrapped Hostess Ding-Dongs? They look like hockey pucks and the kids/kiddo grownups might like them. I still eat them and I am 26.

I think it is a really cute way to include his personality in a wedding that probably mostly reflects you! (that isn’t a dig… i think most weddings end up reflecting the women more just bc we’re more interested in all this stuff)

@Statutory Grape: It has actually been all about me up until this point, and I started feeling guilty. The color is purple because I like purple. Everything is beach themed because we are getting married on the beach and I love the beach. I felt I had to stick with a beach theme only. I want the day to be about both of us (as it should be) and I want him to know that I considered him in the planning process. This will put a smile on his face and that makes me smile.

Goose Grease on etsy does customized cake toppers. I bet she would do it with you guys wearing his favorite team’s jersey or something like that.
Do you have a lot of pictures of you guys at games? You could take those and make them into a photobook for the guest book.

Considering your FI’s background, I think this cake topper is perfect!

@BridetoBe101610: Ah, I get it now. 🙂 I think it’s a nice way to bring in what he likes too, then.

I think it is absolutely adorable! I don’t like a lot of cake toppers that are actual people, but I think this is super cute, and super sweet of you!

Ahh! That is so freaking cute! And I love that they are still wearing a wedding dress and tux, it keeps it classy 🙂
