Poor you, you sound so stressed. I think the Simpsons would be an awesdome cake topper – my So loves South Park, I hope to get us made into characters for our cake (years in the future when we get there)

Hope you and your Fiance get good news about your jobs soon (and far less stress)

My Fiance really only had 2 wedding-related requests:

1-candy bowl centerpieces

2-a grassy field so he and the guys can play a little game of touch rugby after the reception. (Yeah, right, touch rugby my arse)

His mom thinks it’s ridiculous to play rugby at a wedding, but since we both played in college and that’s how we met, I think it’s cute.  Stick to your guns lady- this is YOUR & YOUR FI’s wedding- do what makes YOU happy!!

Not questioning what you’re doing for your wedding (personally, I don’t get the whole wedding theme idea–I thought “wedding” was a good theme Tongue Out).

However, are you having a groom’s cake?  Could you use the topper for that?  My Darling Husband wanted a Simpson’s cake topper.  I would have let him have one but he couldn’t find one he liked at a price he liked (and I had a very formal wedding in a formal venue).

Stick to what you want. The notion that anyone on this planet doesn’t know who/what the Simpsons are after 23 years is ludicrous.

And who says a wedding has to have a theme at all? It’s a wedding! The theme is HilaryT and Mr. HilaryT get married 🙂

My mom told us the same thing about our cake topper.  We had a super silly frog bride and monkey groom topper while the rest of our wedding was very formal and elegant.  My mom kept harping on it before the wedding.

After the wedding she told me that I was right and that the topper was adorable and so “us”.

Just do what you want.  You’re right: it IS your wedding.

We both love the Simpsons! I think it’ll be cute, can we see a pic of it? I’m pretty set on a wedding cake topper I saw where the bride/groom are pinching eachothers buns. 😉 Everyone will ‘get’ that I’m sure lol!

 

Go with what you like. As you said, it’s YOUR wedding, and he wants it, so where’s the harm?

Take a deep breath and remember this is your day. Everyonevknows the simpsons and if they don’t so what? It is your day & the grooms day. There are so many bigger things for others to be worried about. This day is about the love you and your fiance share. Do NOT give in about the topper bc that could lead to more “suggestions” and it wuld be disrespectful to you fiance. Chin up!

I think sometimes people lose sight of the big picture. We have decided to not mention the cake topper to our families because we know people will be overly critical of the idea leading up to it. I honestly can’t imagine anyone thinking negative of it on the wedding day. Before: “That’s rediculous” After: “Aww, that is so them.” Personally I think the cake topper is somewhere you can be a bit more whimsical.

We are doing this cake topper btw: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-0LFzseVgC4Q/TWTDf4znrKI/AAAAAAAAAC0/sdO9LbmwwB8/s1600/184223_1744405943319_1633874668_1661881_2687975_n.jpg

I don’t think its that out there, but eeeh T.T I can still imagine a reaction.
