Bride and Groom Collection



I was just at my Mom and Dads for a sewing weekend with my Mom.  I was looking at her Anri wood carved set and thought it would make a good start to this blog.  This set is very special because it was the cake topper on my brother Brad's wedding cake.  We lost him to brain cancer when he was a young husband and father.  This set will go to his only child Kate someday.


This set was also in my Mom's miniature box.  It was on my Great-Grandmother Mary and Great-Grandfather Ben Harbaugh's wedding cake.


Then above is the start of my collection of Bride and Grooms.  This is the newest addition.  My Mom and I laughed because it looks like the same doll dressed two ways!


This is a salt and pepper set.  This is the "Before" side.


This is the "After" side.


This is a little matchbox bride and groom set.


This is a set all dressed up in crepe paper which I noticed they used a lot for decorating these little cake toppers.


This is a plastic set in crepe paper outfits.

Another set.


This one is a really small set.


These I call my "army men set" because they are that size.


My Mom gave me this set.


These say Princess Elizabeth and Lieut. Phillip Mountbatten on their bases.


I then decided to google today's cake toppers and found some funny ones to share.


New technology has come to cake toppers!

This one is a feat in cake construction!


I loved this one!


Can you imagine what the future mother-in-law would say if you had this on your cake.

If all these cake toppers could only talk!


I think this is one of my longest blogs ever! I hope you enjoyed it.  I just love weddings.  I get teased that I go just for the wedding cake and the buttercream mints but I love it all.  It is a new beginning!
