Answer to #4:  http://www.etsy.com

I got several items for our wedding there and loved each one.  We got our cake topper made as well and it was only $50.00.  $250 sounds waaay high.  All of the items on etsy are handmade and I know I’ve seen caketoppers similar to that microdwarf site on there.

Welcome, and congrats!


Can you put your FH son in the wedding party?  I’m not sure if there is an equivalent of Jr. Bridesmaid for the men.  I also don’t know how old is too old for ring bearer.   You could always have him stand up there with the two of you, and have your officiant recognize that you are becoming one family, etc.


I dunno. I think a first dance is sort of important… people expect to see it, too.  If you really hate dancing, don’t do it though.  Another idea- I have seen people dance together for 30 seconds or less, and then have the DJ announce that the other couples join you on the dance floor.  That way, you aren’t singled out.

Hey there! I’m a 4-13-12 bride too!! Welcome :oD I just wanted to mention that the little “bobble head” cake topper from microdwarf.com can be seen on an episode of 4 weddings on TLC: The episode was in season 2 called chips & onion dip. The first bride, Karen had one on her cake and it looked super cute!! The brides photographer posted a slide show of her wedding photography on youtube and you can see the topper in it! Here’s the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RvabS3FXzG4   scroll to 3:03 in and you’ll see a few shots of it. Hope this helps!!!

1 – The colours sound great! I would see that combo as being very elegant and totally gothic/Victorian.  I am sort of thinknig of Scarlet O’Hara with that, but I hope I don’t offend you with that.  Maybe if you are worried about too much black, do black dresses with white details and then the parisols and gloves can be red.

2 – For my eventual wedding, I reall want my nephews as part of the party but by the time it actually comes around, my oldest nephew will be a teen, probably.  My solution? Jr. Groomsman because I also will have a Jr. Bridesmaid.  I know it’s not traditional, but for me it evens out and I think it would be fine and look fine even if you don’t have a Jr. Bridesmaid because hey, it’s your wedding party, you can do what you want with it!

3- I have only ever been to weddings where there was a first dance, so I can’t say that I’ve been to one that hasn’t done it at all.  However, the latest wedding I attended, their song was from Sailor Moon and they did the sawying, middle school type dance.  I’ve seen videos where the bride and groom did like a flashmob and included the rest of the bridal party too for something unforgettable.  I would not say it is nessecary at all, though.

4- Sorry, I have not heard of that website. It looks like they do a great job, but I would not be willing to spend $250 on a cake topper.  Then again, I don’t think I would want a topper at all, so maybe that’s just me.

Good luck – sounds like an awesome wedding!
