they're time consuming, but in general not tough to make. there's toooons of directions all over the net Smiley

Our cake topper was two pewter dragons twisted into a heart.I'm not really into that sort of thing, but I thought these were cool and old-looking.  I had seen them years before in a catalogue that our choir director gave us ( for the madrigal dinner) . One thing that I thought was cool, is that the company had Romeo/Juliette toppers, and another famous couple, but I can not for the life of me remember who...

(btw, we didn't eat any of the cake that the topper touched  Wink )

We used a Willow Tree figurine as well. Our wedding was over three years ago and this is the figurine we used:

eta: I have no idea why the pictures of these figurines makes them look so short but they are taller than they appear

Oh and I totally forgot about he almost grooms cake topper. DH really likes the X-Files so we were going to have a Scully and Mulder cake topper on the groomscake but just never got around to it.

I have dollhouse dolls that when I get married I plan on making them wedding clothing and sticking them on the cake. I probably should start because it looks like we may get engaged 2006. (We're waiting till Chris finshes college)

Willow Tree toppers are gorgeous and unique!  They're figurines, but they have couple statues that people have used as their toppers.  This one is particularly sweet http://www.windmillcountry.com/willowtree/26121_72dpi.jpg

Someone bought me that exact thing for an engagement present....not my cup of tea at all to be honest.

I was thinking of either getting Dia De los Muertos bride and groom figurines or maybe Corpse Bride/TNBC figures....im not sure yet.

I used a 30 year old wedding bell cake topper that had been my Aunt's and then my cousin's cake topper. It is great if you can use one that has meaning for your family. I've also seen just flowers done as cake decorations and toppers, which I like as well. If you are going for people on your topper, I like the willow tree toppers. I generally don't like people toppers because they never look like you. Also, my husband is Asian and I am white, so it would have been pretty impossible to find something appropriate.
