honestly..I hate it…sorry. If you still wanted to use it bc your sister bought it you could always use it at your bridal shower for a laugh

Yeah, I don’t like it either! For me, it’s what the “scene” represents, you having to chase him down. It could work as a gag prop at your bridal shower like ShennaB2b suggested. Why go to all that trouble of painting?

This particular one will only work if you are silly (like me) or if your wedding is going to be more laid-back and informal. These are sold in a few other ethnicities if one is willing to search for them. I wouldn’t recommend taking a marker to them, not sure how that would look. I agree with Shennab2b, use it at the bridal shower which is usually more relaxed.

I say pass. If its not you then thanks but no thanks is all you can really do. I found ours on Etsy.com because the ones in stores didnt match us at all. Were having a laid back music themed wedding, my dress is purple and its a multidenominational ceremony by an officiant, outside and under a chuppah. Lol, were just a little different. But there are tons of options and because you deal directly with the people who make them, you can have whatever youre buying customized(i.e. hair color, style, skin color, etc.). Theres a million and more options out there. Dont give up or give in if you dont like it =] Congrats!

i think not on top of a cake but you can put it off to the side people will still see it and laugh which is the purpose anyway..but me personally i dont like it on top of a cake….make it look a little cheap… but off to the side on the cake table of the wedding or bridal shower and it gives the same end result a good laugh letting everyone no who is boss. :0)

Don’t use it for your wedding – especially if you don’t like it. use it as a prop for the rehearsal dinner or at a bridal shower.

Its a funny little figurine, but not for display at your wedding.  I agree with Miss Ke Aloha above, that it would probably be more suitable for a shower, bachelorette party or maybe the rehearsal dinner if you’re really attached to it or feeling obligated to use it.  It just seems to me like this would just exasterbate that stereotype that the bride is forcing her groom to do something he doesn’t want to and I’m sure that’s not what your wedding is about.  Seems like on a day where you are joining into a partnership you’d want to have things to celebrate that instead.  Also, I think it will probably be very difficult to color it and get it to look good.

I saw somebody paint this in a very funny way, for a zombie wedding. 

but if thats not your theme i agree with everyone else, just use it at one of your other wedding events.

It’s not that I think it looks cheap. Honestly, I think the quality is fine. I personally wouldn’t just markers, though. I’d ask an artistic friend (and I mean really arrtistic, and not just “well, they draw stick figures okay) to paint it for me, and buy him/her quality paints to use on it.

However, I hate the idea of the wedding topper. I hate all toppers that feature an unwilling groom. “Game Over”, him running away, her dragging him back, all of these just seem to clash with the idea of a wedding. Aren’t the bride and groom supposed to be in love? What does it say to older family members if they see this? Will they think she trapped him, or he is somehow being forced to marry her?And what if he is wealthier or has a really good job or something, will his family look at this and then she’s some kind of gold-digger?

IDK, I’m probably overthinking it, but I just don’t find this funny, at least not for a wedding cake. Now, the bachlorette party, or a wedding shower…. feel free to use the gag topper for that!
