His family is in the wrong for not being accepting, don’t let that keep you from getting whatever cake topper you want.

If they come to the wedding, its not as if they dont know you are black,  so yeah i would go with the biracial cake topper. if they dont agree with your union, they dont have to come.

@sahlaneywedding:  If they’re offended by interracial marriage from the get go, I’m fairly certain a cake topper won’t put them over the edge anymore than watching the marriage itself take place.  Get the cake topper you want!!!

 

I’m sorry you’re having to even question this decision 🙁  But you seem to be handling it very well and I think that’s great.  Congratulations on your upcoming nuptials!!!!

@sahlaneywedding:

No, i understand and maybe i should have said it a little better,  what i meant was,  they know your colour,  and if they decide to come to your wedding,  then take it as a sign that they have  accepted you……(if they really didnt like you they wouldnt come)   and given that the people that DO  come and have accepted you, then so too will they accept that for you its pretty normal to want a biracial cake topper.  whats so unusual about it if it mimicks the couple perfectly?   

Just remember….your wedding day is YOUR  day,  do it how you want to.

I say screw them. You and your fiance are getting married, you’re obviuosly biracial… a cake topper shouldn’t shock/offend. Obviously they’re aware of this and hopefully if they’re there they support you guys no matter waht.

go with the biracial cake topper.  If this offends them, then they’re easily offended people and not worth tiptoeing around.

@sahlaneywedding: you are simplifying this way too much… if they are offended by the cake topper they are offended by your relationship. And that is their problem not yours!

You are BLACK and he is WHITE, it is what it is and accept it and be comfortable with it and if they are there and have a problem with it… they can take their  ignorant  thoughts and leave. It is your day!

I would have to agree with KristenGettingMarried. Go with the cake topper that you want.
