Hey Everyone,


We were so thrilled with how our custom cake topper turned out I had to post and share it with you!

I’ve seen a couple of threads on here about custom toppers, from Etsy and Lillipop, but nothing quite like this...


It is a miniature figurine set of us in our wedding attire based on photos we sent in to the seller. We sent in several pictures of our faces and then pictures of all of our attire and anything we wanted incorporated (hairdo, flowers, flip flops, etc) or embellished.


Here is the finished product:

Wedding Cake with Topper
Our Cake Topper

This made quite the hit at our wedding; everyone was asking about it and taking pictures. The workmanship is outstanding; they really do look a lot like us. It will be a small keepsake from our special day that we will treasure for a long, long, time.


If you are still looking for a custom cake topper and are interested, we bought through an eBay store http://www.ebay.ca/usr/petticoat_king but they also have a standalone website http://www.aprilbridal.com. I chose to buy through eBay because the listing included the shipping charge and for the added buyer protection with PayPal.

That is just so cute!! I think it's a very special keepsake! I also wanted to say your flowers are absolutely gorgeous!!! Was it a local Cuban florist that did them? And your dress is stunning!! Care to share the deisgner?


Congrats on your wedding!!!

I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

Thank you Everyone :)

The local florist did the flowers with some extra supplies I brought with me (Ribbon & Wire wrap). I just posed a new thread about my flowers here: http://www.bestdesti...bbon-wire-wrap/

My dress was an online purchase from eBay, a factory direct 'knock off'/no name! I hit the jackpot! I sent in 2 pages full of measurements and selections/options and the dress was made specially for me. With some very minor alterations it fit perfectly!

Funny story... This was the second dress I ordered, after ordering my first one (also online) I fell in love with this one (without trying either of them on). Luckily, it must have been fate, I found this dress as my first never showed up (seller went AWOL - no worries PayPal refunded me). I should add a thread about my dress fiasco, it all turned out for the better and I learned a lot about ordering dresses online and taking measurements etc.!
