Very cute! But I admit, my first thought after “How cute!” and “They must REALLY love their laptops!” was “Why is the dog’s collar on the ground?”

I bought a plastic bride and groom with our coloring for $1 each at a cake supply store, but my mom says she bought us a ceramic figurine that is prettier, so I guess we’ll use that for the main cake, if we like it. I didn’t care to spend the money on custom or fancy toppers.

Oh, i love it!! And I think it’s a sweet touch to add the dog’s collar.  But this is coming from another puppy lover. Tongue Out

EDIT: Honestly, who cares what people think about the collar.  If it’s special to you then include it.  I think it’s so silly when guests get gossipy or make fun of details like that about others weddings.  If you don’t like it, then don’t do it for your wedding….but otherwise, to each their own!

@Uptowngirl2857:  So cute!

I really want to get one of these personalized ones off Etsy.  They price recently went from $50 to $70 though… I may just splurge anyway.

I love it! I really, REALLY want a custom one made with my/our 2 cats on it but FH thinks it’s stupid. I kind of get the feeling my mom is going to order us one secretly though…

We’re not having a cake topper so I have nothing to share, but yours is SO freakin’ cute!! And the details of the dress! I think its really sweet to have your dogs included that way – I love when people include their pets in their weddings 🙂 And I don’t think its morbid to have the collar of your other pup on there – people do things to commemorate lost loved ones and for you she is a lost loved one.

Sorry for the loss of your baby 🙁

@Uptowngirl2857:  I love your topper… and I think the collar to include your baby in it is perfect. How sweet. <3 I’m sorry for your loss.

We got ours off Etsy, as well. It was a last-minute decision, and I couldn’t be more happy… right now it sits on display on our mantle, but I want to get a proper hutch to put in in (along with our champagne flutes, etc.)…
Darling Husband thought it would be a waste of $ to get a personalized one, but I think he was pleasantly surprised. The seller got every little detail… my earrings, my dress, his chef ‘whites’, etc. Eek, I still love it! The only thing I’m sad about, is that our photographer didn’t get pics of it from the back–sadly, my favourite part–‘my’ hand not holding the bouquet, is on his butt! SO us!

I love it. Animals are part of your family so I love that they were included. Ours is this in grey and orange:

Omg I love these! Especially housebee’s DIY… how in the world did you make that yourself? I’m so impressed!

 

On a related note, I was looking for cake toppers and found this: http://weddings.gatheringguide.com/ac/all-about-you/what-your-cake-topper-says-about-you. It’s funny and pretty true. I’m afraid I fall into the “Bad Idea topper” category, (bride on groom’s back) but it’s not set in stone yet. We might use the funny one as a decoration on the guestbook table instead.

My theme was koi (the venue has koi ponds). So I found someone on Etsy to do Fish in a Bowl. It sits on our mantle.

My cake topper was also made from a seller on Etsy, and fits our baseball theme perfectly! My fiance and I are both wearing our favourite players’ jerseys. The bottom of my dress matches my actual dress. My Fiance is wearing his favourite shoes!
