The pastor (also father of the groom) made us these posable cake toppers using one of our engagement photos. The bride's dress and the maid of honor's dress were both hand-made, as well as the bouquet of ceramic flowers (which did NOT get thrown)... all this done (including food, music etc) for less than 500 dollars.
When we got engaged, my husband had one request: a Dark Side groom's cake. I couldn't let him have all the fun, so I had a Star Wars bride's cake!
Of all the times I've watched the original trilogy, I never even once considered how good R2D2 would look in a wedding veil. Who knew!?
