My sister and her husband have graciously offered to get us a wedding cake topper for our wedding gift, as a momento that we can carry for the rest of our lives. i think it’s a really cute idea. the company tailors the topper to each individual. you have to send them pictures of yourselves for them to create and paint the wedding cake topper. here is a link to the one she is getting for us:
i’m wondering, though, is this wayyyyy too cheesy? we are very casual people, and i LOVE the idea of a caricature of us on the sand on top of our cake. i think it’s so funny!
what do you all think?

I think it’s kind of fun! It’s definitely a less ‘traditional’ and more ‘fun’ cake topper, so if you’re not as formal, it could fit really well. 🙂

If you’re having a relatively formal wedding / reception, it may look out of place even if you and your Fiance are casual people in general. But I think they’re really cute and would fit perfectly with a more casual event!

What is your cake going to look like? I think that will be a big factor in how cheesy the topper looks.

@futureKMM, our reception is going to be pretty formal. like we’ll have traditional table cards with place settings and three courses, etc. do you still think it’s too cheesy and out of place? i think it fits our personalities really well though. we’re really fun people!

@LGenz i think our cake will be three tiers right on top of eachother. but now that i think about it, maybe having a huge flat cake might be smarter, so that the cake looks more casual… what do you all think?

Honestly, I don’t think they are cheesy, I think they’re fun!
I am sure that your guests will get a kick out of them, and they are something you will always have.

we got a slightly less custom, but still custom cake topper(has my dress, his work uniform and our eye and hair colors) i love the idea!

I think you should stay with your original plan on the cake and go with the cake topper. If it’s totally you, then it should fit in because the wedding is suppoed to be a reflection of who the both of you are.
