My first Etsy purchase!

I have finally made my first Etsy purchase!!! Well, kind of. I say kind of because I found the lady through Etsy.. but she’s Australian so uses a different site for Australian transactions. Anyhow, that is all beside the point. The point is that Etsy + Cake Topper was always going to equal brilliance... and it did not disappoint.

Topper made by, and photo taken by, Sarah from Enchanted Belles.

Seriously, see that photo on this post? That is our cake topper. You can’t see very well in this photo, but I even sent her some of the hail spot tulle from my dress and she has made the little cake toppers dress out of it! Pretty neat huh? It’s really good too because now rather than trying to explain to people what we will be wearing etc for our wedding when they ask I can just go ‘if we were turned into wooden pegs on our wedding day, this is exactly what we would look like.’

Can’t wait until I get it in the mail! (The photo was taken by Sarah to show me before she sent it).


  1. So cute! I love how they're customised to your outfits.

  2. Hello, I am sorry to post in your comment stream but I was looking to get in touch with you directly about Blurb and couldn't find an email address.

    We're offering some Australian bridal bloggers a customised promotion to give their readers a discount on our photo-book service Blurb. Blurb is a high-end photographic book publisher that allows anyone to create professional quality books.

    We thought since they make great engagement and/or wedding albums your audience could be interested.

    Here are a couple of examples of recent books:

    1. NZ Author, great book, has the best man speech woven into the story.

    2. Great classic wedding book, more destination wedding, good imagery.

    My email is and I represent Blurb in Australia.

  3. So cute cake topper. I believe putting a topper on the cake may add some funny and romantic elements to the total design of the cake.
