Sounds pretty traditional to me – has your dad explained what about your plans bothers him?

It’s YOUR wedding – do what makes you happy. 🙂

VERY traditional to me! Especially since I had no They think it’s non-traditional because there’s no cake topper? Do you think there are other things they are upset about?

Wow, I would say that’s a pretty traditional wedding. Has your father said what parts of the wedding are non-traditional to him?  Maybe you should just go to him and tell him that his complaining is hurting your feelings and you wish he would forget about things that aren’t important and be happy for you – no matter if you decided not to have a cake topper. Gah! That is probably one of the wierdest things to harp on that I’ve heard of!

Maybe you could show him some wedding blogs, too, and let him see what truely non-traditional looks like 🙂

A cake topper? LOL! It sounds to me like they’re trying to talk to you about something that bothers them about your wedding, maybe how involved they are? And instead of saying that they’d like to be a bigger presence in your wedding, they complain about the cake topper. Real logical, but hey, people are like that. I’m sorry it’s so hard.

Is the cake topper the only issue that they’ve brought up? That seems awfully silly imo. Are you planninng on having anything at all on the cake… flowers or fruit or something? Maybe you could show them a picture of what you’re thinking of doing, or else just tell them you’ve made up your mind and you are done discussing the matter.

Whaaaat? A cake topper? Really?

Maybe you could ask him to list specifically everything that’s on his mind in regard to your ‘non-traditional’ (not really) wedding. Maybe seeing it in black and white will make it clearer. I suspect that he is really bothered by something else, or, he will look at his list and realize how short it really is!

I for one would be extremely disaapointed if there was no cake topper on someone’s wedding cake – um, like I’d ever even notice! 

They only way I’d be dissappointed is if there were no dessert at all – but hey, I’d get over even that.

There has to be, as others have said, another issue.

@Wildstyle – I personally would storm out of a wedding, snatching my gift off of the gift table as I left, if there was no cake topper. Hee hee. Um…can you tell your parents that you have changed your mind and you will do a cake topper, but you need help deciding between these…

(note – to any offbeat Bees using these toppers, I think that would be awesome – just think it would be funny if your parents are very traditional!)

i really like some of those, especially the one where she has her legs wrapped around his waist   when my friend got married about 18months ago her cake topper was cature chickens in bridal attire inc a top hat for the rooster – no one could figure it out and i had people asking me (becuase i was close to the bride) what they were about and i was clueless too but the cake was yummy!
