    I’ve seen ALL KINDS of caketoppers. I don’t think it would be weird at all. I think it would be very witty and funny! If you and your fi want it, run with it!

    Even though I’ve already ordered a cake topper that matches our flowers, I’m seriously thinking about this one. We both adore our dog very much! And we thought this would be cute!

    @RiverBride13:  I’ve got my heart set on custom robot caketoppers. This is fine!

    My Fiance is going to make our caketopper out of Warhammer figurines, legos seem tame by comparison. I say if it says something about you as a couple and it will make your Fiance happy, do it; it’s his day too.

    @RiverBride13:  At present we’ve not had many thoughts, but we’re not after anything too massively decorated. Some of the inspiration pics I’ve found have been these:

    (I just thought this one was really charming!)

    I think the cake’s gonna be quite simple, with maybe accents to match the colour scheme, but as the rest of the decor is going to be quite autumnally, I think the robots will be stand alone figures. Which is no biggy, I just think they’re too fantastic to pass up!

    My fiancé is a big video game nerd and I saw this pin on Pinterest.  I loved the idea and it will still let the wedding cake be pretty :). We are going to have the master sword from Zelda instead of spidey but thought it was cute 🙂

    @RiverBride13:  If it goes with the flow and motif of your wedding I would go for it. If you aren’t convinced, you could still use the figures for his groom’s cake. Cool

    Do it!  I’ve seen legos before at other weddings (not as cake toppers, but as place cards) and if it fits you and your Fiance people will love it!

    @RiverBride13:  I love the lego idea, but will the figures be too small for your cake?  You could always try making it out of polymer clay yourself.  Then you could totally customize your cake topper.  That’s what we ended up doing since adding all the details we wanted was going to cost WAAAAY too much.  My total cost for it was $15, and I don’t really sculpt at all.  I ended up making 2, but I’m pretty sure we’re going to use the second one
