Wedding Cake Toppers

I was thinking if I was young and planning a wedding would I want a vintage cake topper or these Hallmark Barbie & Ken on top of my wedding cake?
Maybe for one of my  shower cakes?

I always liked things not so traditional but a little traditional so yes I would like a vintage cake topper . Also of course I would want loads of rhinestones on my party favors.
I think the weddings today where the brides are using vintage table settings are wonderful
               
This is the only topper I have left with a bride & Groom on them I use to collect the china ones, they are wonderful

       



I even put a rhinestone pin on the Brides dress LOL, didn't notice till I loaded the pictures or I would have taken it off  

Some of the on lookers on the shelf where they sit, I call them my Marie Antoinette people

                                                                       

Then I have Ken & Barbie , I think these would be so cute on a cake ,





These are dated 1997 on their Hallmark box

                                                   
I had a friend who had it on her Bucket list to try on wedding dresses. Because when she was married she never got to go into St Louis to a bridal shop.  Well she just had to tell me once so I called David Bridal and ask if me and some other ladies could surprise Annette with an afternoon at David;s trying on wedding dresses? The manager Emily said sure, so we went and she was thrilled
   
The Bride of years gone By


                                                               

                                                                                                                                               

She had sooooooooooooo much fun doing this  . Annette said all I need is a Groom LOL, her husband died of pancreas cancer very sudden , they were high school sweethearts from Troy Missouri, moved to Columbia Missouri to attend college and have lived here several years


This dress below was her favorite, a champagne color with a long sleeve jacket covered in lace with a few glitter pearls & sparkle that was also a long train .She also had a copy of Kate's wedding tiara on .
Like I said we all had fun, even the young lady named Anna that assisted said,  most fun she has had working there.

  6. Hi Janice, Are you getting along alright over there in your neighborhood? I hope so. The sun is nice isn't it?
    Your cake toppers are wonderful! That was so kind of David's Bridal to let you gals come in and let your friend try on gowns. That's neat.
    Have a good week,
