@WeAreMarshalls:

Oh my goodness! I am looking for the EXACT same thing (I hope that doesn’t make you feel badly, lol) I am having SO much trouble finding anything like that pre-made (I don’t really like the clay figures either.) Please keep me updated on your process and I’ll do the same. I wouldn’t mind a DIY project with this either, but having a little trouble figuring out how to, like you, not make it look cheesy. 

Looking forward to any suggestions!

I don’t know if this is an idea you’d be interested in, but what about a photo cake topper…

Have a picture taken of you in your wedding dress laying or sitting on his piano, and have a photo taken of him in his tuxedo or a great suit playing the piano.  You wouldn’t have to be together when you had it done, because you could have the two shots photoshopped together.

It would kind of be a surprise for him when he sees it on your cake…

Oh, yes Julies. The sitting bride and groom could definitely work (and I found a blonde bride in that style for me!) with a small dollhouse or collectors mini-piano. 

I’ve never heard of a photo cake topper, Loribeth, so I’ll have to look into that. 

I’m looking on Etsy.com and asking a few vendors if they’d be able to make a custom piece with this idea. Since it would be a great keepsake, I personally don’t mind spending a little bit of money on this…but of course it would be great to not break the bank on this!

Let me know what else you discover, Marshalls! Thanks.

This is the photo cake topper that I’m thinking about using at the party we’re having this spring to celebrate our destination elopement, which was December 1st.  I’m going to display pictures from our actual wedding in it. 

For your piano idea, maybe you could use 4 different pictures of you and your groom by the piano.

The other idea would be the photoshop idea I shared before in a cake topper like this one.
