    I love the “love pinch”, but I would find it a tad weird if the cake topper was the complete opposite of the B&G.

    Personally, I don’t think it’s crucial that they look like you (I think I’m going to be having turtle figurines for my topper, so luckily I won’t have to worry!).

     

    If you love the topper and it’s going to make you smile on your day and represents the 2 of you, then get it!  If you think you are going to be worrying that it doesn’t match with your hair colors while you’re cutting the cake or hate that the hair is wrong every time you see a picture of it, then don’t buy it.

    I honestly don’t think it matters if it’s the opposite of what you look like. I would think it was more weird if like the groom had your fiance’s hair color and the bride had a hair color that didn’t match yours. But if they’re BOTH off, I think it’s ok LOL.

    What about getting model paints and a tiny brush and painting over the hair? If you got the right paint and have a steady hand no one would be able to tell.

    i agree with Vonnegurl, you could try to paint over it. It might be a little difficult painting over the dark hair color, where you might have to try to layer on the paint.

    It really doesn’t make that much difference though. With everything that is going on at your wedding, will the guests really notice something so small? i don’t think so.

    Our cake topper was a traditional Welsh love spoon.  It didn’t look a bit like us!

    I voted no, but then read the idea of painting it! Perfect! Find someone who is crafty if you don’t think you’re up for the task.

    I vote paint the hair (I didn’t actually vote since that’s not a choice).

    I don’t really think that the figurines need to look like you two. Isn’t super customization a fairly newer concept? Also, as Tampamom pointed out, people use anything and everything to represent themselves without it being an exact physical representation. I say go for it, and I think that if the hair is a concern, slicey’s idea to paint the hair is pretty easy and brilliant! 🙂

    The cake topper is too cute. But when it comes to figurines its almost a rule of thumb they should look like you. 

    You could buy them and repaint them to look more like you!

    I don’t really think it’s a big deal! If you like it, go for it!
