Here Comes The Bride..



I just love wedding cake toppers. I don't collect them YET. To be honest, I have not really come upon any while out and about. I love that they remind me of an innocence that is lost and forgotten. Looking back to my wedding day (which was not all that long ago), brings me memories that are of happiness and excitment like no other. A day when nothing but hopes and dreams were beginning. It's funny how I can look at pictures or a video of that day and still cry. Are the tears because that day was so special? Tears of the trials that brought us closer? Or tears for knowing God has truly blessed me? Picking out my wedding topper meant a lot to me. Now, after many laughs, tears, and peanutbutter and jelly flying through the air as well as straight out, unquestionable blessings, this wedding topper still stands displayed in my front room, strong and unblemished.

I was just in Hobby Lobby looking at cake toppers. I love them all (except the one of the bride dragging the groom:). My mother-in-law picked mine and I treasure it-glued back on groom head and all (hubby says I did it on purpose-I really don't remember what happend:) Treasure yours, it only gets better!

That's so sweet. I love her veil. I am so happy you found your pearl initial. That girl has a pretty eBay site. I found one of those last year and gave to my daughter in law. Why I didn't buy myself one I don't know. :)

Awww. . . After 18 years of marriage, I can't say I even remember our wedding topper! What I do remember is the blessed day we were united as one!

Hi Wendy... What a pretty post and a pretty topper! It's so nice to be able to think back on such a special day with such wonderful memories. I've been married 19 years, now, and still have sweet memories of our day. We had fresh flowers on top of our cake!
