A bit of a short post today as I really don’t actually have much to say about this topic—I think the pictures do most of the talking for me. I mentioned previously that my amazingly talented mother was going to make amigurumi cake toppers for us. She’s still working on the groom, but I couldn’t wait to show you how far she’s gotten. The little bear bride is done!
The dress isn’t exactly like mine, but I am in love with the detailing. As you can see, she used a lace border around the skirt. There are little silver beads that have been attached to the flower detail on the bottom. Her veil might be a tad too long, but I kind of like it that way.
I made her necklace out of some beads that my mother had sitting around the house. I wanted to incorporate the silver beading of the dress and the pearls in her flowery hairpiece together. The pink stone was to help incorporate more of our colors. I’m not completely convinced that it was the right design decision, but I think we’ll leave it like that for now.
Isn’t she absolutely beautiful? The bear groom will be similar, but he’ll have a little tux, bow tie, and top hat as a nod to our save the dates. I can’t wait to seem them together. I am so excited.
What do you think? Should we change anything? What are you using for your cake toppers?
