    Mine was $45 but I was planning on initially spending like $200. I think it’s worth it to spend the extra $$ to have something beautifully made because it’s a keepsake you’ll have for the rest of your life.

    Here’s mine. I looove it.

    $ 38 🙂

    The frame is removable so you can place it back diagonally. For us, it makes sense because we met online and all we had to go by was a picture.

    This topper is called “picture perfect”

    Ours was $54.50. Originally, I really wanted an Ann Woods sweathearts birds topper, but I couldn’t bring myself to spend $200+ on a cake topper. I really love the one we ended up with though:

    I have no intentions of keeping my cake topper, so I’m buying a “C” monogram at Michaels – with a 40% coupon it’s about $7.  (:

    I am getting flowers for the top of my squared cake and I am adding a monnogram cake “topper” on the second tier of the cake. All together it’s about $30.

    My Fh is making ours.  It has been halfway done for a few months.  He is a metal worker and it is two intertwined hearts.  Looking forward to seeing it.

    I’m making my own clay people that look like us in our wedding clothes.  I haven’t made it yet, but my trial run took about 4 hours to make.  I didn’t bake that one though, so I guess add in however long the craft clay from Michaels takes in the oven…

    We are spluring on the cake topper, and doing one similar to this from magicmud.  We aren’t splurging on much, and I’m going to have to get cheaper invites to justify this, but I LOVE IT.  We’ll display it on a shelf with our wedding pictures when everything is said and and done.
