We're always thrilled (and proud) to post photos that our wonderful customer friends have sent us. Please feel free to send us your pictures of our Fun Wedding Things items "in action," as well! (We won't use any names, and we can crop around the photo so faces won't be seen.) We appreciate it!
The three photos above show one of our ever-popular Fun Wedding Things "What a Drag" duck hunting-themed cake toppers. The bride told us that everyone at the reception loved the topper, noting that the theme fit the new couple perfectly!
Here's one of our handcrafted decorative mini couches atop a fireman-themed cake a customer friend made for a firehouse fundraiser. She said the fire chief noted that in 30 years, he's never seen bidding for a cake go that high - "Everyone wanted the couch!"
For the University of Miami's homecoming events, the mother of one of the school's cheerleaders purchased two garters from us. Her daughter and a fellow cheerleader proudly wore their "U" garters as both legbands and armbands for all to see. And, as mom noted, her daughter can keep the garter and use it at her wedding in the future!
These photos are from a wonderful bride and groom who are die-hard Pittsburgh Penguins hockey fans. The bride said everyone loved their Fun Wedding Things Penguins-themed topper - they got so many compliments! She's going to have the topper placed in a glass dome along with some freeze-dried flowers from the cake.
At one of the more unique weddings we've been fortunate to play a small role in recently, the bride and groom were married at a minor-league hockey game. The red carpet was rolled out on the ice, they walked underneath an arch of hockey sticks, etc. So the wedding cake topper we created for them was similarly adorned - red carpet, hockey sticks, hockey puck, team colors, the whole nine yards. What fun!
Above left we have one of our happy customer friends showing off her New England Patriots-themed garter underneath her stunning wedding dress. On the right is a beautiful artsy black-and-white photograph of one of our St. Louis Blues-themed sports garters, hard at work during the big wedding day.
Here's one of our popular deer hunting-themed cake toppers atop a stunning lavender and white wedding cake. The wedding ceremony had a hunting theme throughout - there were even antlers placed above one of the doorways.
We crafted a "bride running to a Porsche" topper for one of our customer friends, as her husband-to-be has a silver Porsche. They said they used the topper on their stunning wedding cake (shown above), as well as on a different cake used for the rehearsal dinner.
The two photos above show one of our Boston Red Sox-themed cake toppers. The happy bride sent us the following e-mail: "Hello--just a quick note of thanks for the delightful products and the great customer service. My sister bought me this wedding cake topper, and it was a huge hit. I followed up and got her the ND garter and she loves it! Thank you so much and I will continue to recommend you and keep you in mind for future friends/family."
Uh-oh... better keep the two photos above far away from the Red Sox-themed topper photos! Ha. What an absolutely amazing cake! This was another fun one - as per our wonderful customer's request, we crafted a mini baseball diamond shape (complete with Astroturf on the top). The bride figurine was running toward a Yankee player figurine (standing on the turf), and Yankees-themed adornments finished off the topper. The bride said everyone loved the topper, and someone else wants the same one for her upcoming wedding, as well.
Here is one of our customer friends showing off her Pittsburgh Penguins-themed garter (and her gorgeous new wedding ring!). She said they chose not to do a bouquet/garter toss at the reception, but her new husband nonetheless loved the garter when he did eventually see it.
One of our kind customer friends had a fun West Virginia University-themed wedding, and she shared a couple of photos with us. The first one shows our WVU-themed cake topper atop one of the pretty wedding cakes, and the second one is a picture of the Matron of Honor helping the bride put on our lace WVU-themed garter. She calls herself a "WVU fanatic" and thanked us for making her wedding memorable. How sweet!
Here are a couple of photos of one of our humorous "team rivalry" groom-dragging-bride cake toppers on a beautiful wedding cake. In this case, the bride roots for Oklahoma, while the groom is a Texas A&M fan. The happy bride noted, "Everyone loved our cake and said that it was perfect for us!"
The two photos above are from one of our customer friends who wanted her two favorite college basketball teams - UCLA and UNC - represented. We fashioned one of our popular groom-dragging-bride cake toppers with a basketball and her two team adornments in back. Our bride reported, "Everybody loved it. The topper was SO 'me.' It remains sitting in our kitchen."
Another one of our groom-dragging-bride team rivalry cake toppers - Lions vs. Giants in this case. The happy couple said the topper was a great addition to their wedding.
The proud mom of the handsome groom above (holding up an Ohio State-themed garter set) told us, "Here is a picture of our son with his FAVORITE 'shower' gift! I truly wanted to thank you for ALL your help in getting this garter set to me. It was just fantastic to have it in time for the shower!!! You're the best!"
One of our checkered flag cake toppers sat proudly atop this beautiful cake. The bride-to-be said, "It surely was a HIT at our wedding reception!"
This really fun photo comes from a proud Georgia Bulldogs fan/bride, who said the garter set was perfect for her wedding. Go, Dawgs!!
A customer mom hoped we could make a topper where the groom was pulling the bride through some fall leaves. It certainly fit the wedding theme perfectly, as shown above, and mom reports that everyone LOVED the topper!
One of our customer friends recently purchased a Los Angeles Dodgers-themed garter set. She wrote, "The garters I purchased from your website worked out perfectly! My husband is a HUGE Dodgers fan, so he was so excited and surprised when he went to pull the garter off for the garter toss."
What a great series of photos here! (Can you tell the groom was stunned and absolutely delighted to see his team's garter?!?) The happy bride noted, "I just thought you would like to see how much of a hit your garter was! It was the PERFECT surprise for my groom!!"
The mother of the groom was commissioned to make a camo-themed cake for her son's wedding, and she added one of our popular deer hunting-themed cake toppers to finish off the look (with additional berries and decor added). She noted there was a group in attendance from her son's shooting club, so they of course loved the topper! She said when people walked over to look at the cake, they chuckled at the groom's claw marks in the topper and the gun carried by the bride.
How cute are these photos? We'll let our wonderful bride customer friend tell the story in her own words: "I told my boyfriend in October of 2009 that I would switch to the Colts and drop my beloved Cowboys if he asked me to marry him. I meant it as joke, but two weeks later he asked me to marry him. Right after I said yes, he reminded me of the deal I had suggested. I thought that the Colts garters would be the perfect way of saying "I Do" to both. I have attached a couple of pictures with the garter on. He was so surprised! We loved them very much!"
We received these two pictures from the happy mother of the bride. Their groom's cake had a poker theme, and one of our card-themed cake toppers sits atop the wonderful cake. Mom said, "It turned out wonderfully and they were so pleased!"
Another card-playing-themed wedding cake here, and the bride and groom even had their own personalized poker chips that went on the groom-dragging-bride topper! The bride said everyone LOVED the cake topper.
These photos came from the very talented mother of the groom - she made all of the wedding cakes on the table! The groom's cake featured one of our "shopping bride" groom-pulling-bride cake toppers. Mom said she added the little sign on the cake which reads, "To: Shopping Mall," and noted that everyone loved the topper and asked where she got it.
How about this ultra-cool groom's cake for a big Cincinnati Bengals fan? Our topper certainly matched the theme there. The mother of the groom said the wedding was "awesome" and that her son loved his cake - "lots of oohs and ahhs from everyone!"
Some beautiful photos came from the bride above, who said, "Your garters, pillow and flower girl basket were a hit!" Love the determined little ring bearer, carrying one of our "team rivalry" ring pillows!
Here we have true Buckeye splendor! The bride thanked us for "doing such a great job with the cake topper," which certainly went with the theme! What a pretty, original cake!
Our camping-themed cake topper fits nicely on this great wedding cake. The bride told us, "Our cake topper was a huge hit!! Thanks again!"
Here's a cute set of pics from a customer who bought a garter set from us. First, the group shot. Second, the garter discovery. Third, they're airborne! (Nice elevation!)
A customer friend purchased two collegiate-themed satin garters from us. Shown above, she noted, "Everyone loved both of the garters!"
Even with the stunning backdrop and table setting above, one of our football-themed cake toppers still fit right in! The bride told us, "I wanted to thank you again for your help and send a couple of pics. The topper was a big hit, and as you can see was perfect for the cake. One of our guests referred to the set-up as 'the best wedding cake ever.' "
A professional cake decorator sent us a picture of her gorgeous creation above, and noted, "Here is a picture of the cake with your cake topper. Everyone loved it."
The bride wearing the satin FSU-themed garter above said her husband loved the garter!

The new bride who purchased one of our deer hunting-themed cake toppers above said she and her groom love deer hunting so much that they even had an ornate deer ice sculpture at their wedding!
Baseball was the theme of the wedding reception here, with the bride and groom all decked out in their Mets jerseys and one of our Mets-themed toppers on the color-matching cake. The bride thanked us for "making their reception fun."
One of our popular "team rivalry" cake toppers was ideal for this fun wedding cake. The bride and groom noted, "The cake topper and the garter were a hit! We got so many compliments. The topper was perfect!"
Here's a fun one - the bride placed one of our groom-dragging-bride cake toppers on top of her two-tiered cake which was surrounded by cupcakes!
This topper featured a small gun cabinet and a mini rifle or two. The bride later told us, "We were very pleased with the topper and it was the talk of the wedding. Here is a photo of the topper on the wedding cake just to show you how good it looked!"
