Cake Toppers for a FSU Groom and a Gator Bride

How about another Gator-iffic entry?

One of my very first posts ever was featuring our cute Knight and Gator cake toppers custom made by Bunnywithatoolbelt. Since being featured here on Weddingbee she has been asked several times to make college-themed cake toppers. Here is her latest creation for a FSU Seminole Groom and UF Gator Bride.

The Seminole Groom rendered these little figures to give Bunnywithatoolbelt to build their Cake Toppers from

The Groom made these little renderings for Hilary of Bunnywithatoolbelt. These are really cute renderings, minus the last one. The Gator should really be chomping the Seminole considering how awesome our football team is… just throwing that out there. The Groom must be in denial. :)

Either way I give the groom some major brownie points for making these little renderings. They are too cute!

And the final product… amazing. Just too cute for me to handle.

    That would be… “Do you and your fiance go to rival schools?”

    Yes… another brain fart on my part! I think my Thesis is killing my brain cells!

    Fiance and I didn’t go to rival schools. but both were a tiger mascot. Maybe we should have used tigers as our cake topper! 😉

    I’m a Gator and my FI is a Knight too. We’re usually okay with that, but we root for rival baseball teams. I was THRILLED when he said he wanted a Knightro groomscake instead of a Yankees one :)

    I went to FSU and my now husband went to UF. I incorporated that fact into the wedding in suddle ways….had a custom-made garter with fsu & uf fabric, put out 1 cup from each school on the candy buffet and separated out some peanut m&ms into out school colors. It was fun, not overbearing but got the point across…especially since the room was divided also.

    We both went to the same school. If Ribs had gone to Purdue I don’t think I’d really speak to him :)

    UCLA and UIUC here. No rivials, but I get to say that UCLA crushed UIUC at the 1984 Rose Bowl 45 to 9. That’s pretty fun to rub in every now and then. :)

    We both went to Iowa State University. I was a student worker in the athletic dept and he was a football player, but we met randomly outside of athletics.
    *I believe UF has our old football coach as their defensive coordinator.*

    Very cute! You should still use his little renderings for other stationery in your wedding. I love them! :)

    No, we didn’t AND our schools both didn’t have football teams. Lame, I know.

    As an American Indian, I’ll appreciate the cuteness of your gator and pretend I never saw the Seminole. :)

    I cracked up laughing on the last rendition of the cake topper! What a trip! My FI and I did not go to rival schools but his entire family is a rival school to me (University of Oklahoma vs University of Texas).

    @Miss Scissors: So true, heart me some Gator Lovin’

    @Briteangl8: Awee I can’t imagine how hard it must be! My bestie is a FSU Seminole (Seminole Bridesmaid who you will meet later), and she is fabulous. I don’t hold her Seminole ties against her!!

    @ILikePink: A groom actually made these as ‘mock ups’ for Hilary to make their cake toppers from. While they may not be politically correct, I think they are super cute as mascots for universities!

    @ Miss Dolphin. I wish the Seminole mascot actually looked like Mr. Dolphin’s mock up! Then the cuteness might help me get over the whole “using people as a mascot” idea.

    I’m a Gator, he’s a Nole… I grew up in Tallahassee though, living next door to a past FSU quarterback, so it’s pretty easy for me to overlook it. We enjoy the rivalry most of the time…

    I’m with ILikePink in finding the seminole a little strange but the gator super cute.

    We both went to the same school, U of A! If he had gone to ASU I might have had to rethink this whole marriage thing (I KID!).

    Can we buy these anywhere? I am getting married soon, and I went to UF and my soon to be husband is a huge FSU fan!!!! This would be SOOOOO great for our cake. I’ve been looking for something like this for awhile now.
