Happy Happy Wedding Day

The other day I was asked about my collections.  One I don't think of often is my brides and grooms.

I probably would have never started collecting wedding cake toppers if one of my cats hadn't broken my own.  It was a glass heart.  Larry knocked it off the shelf and it broke into a million pieces.  It was rather unique.  I've never seen another one like it.

So is it any wonder that wedding cake toppers--and especially vintage ones--fascinate me?

I thought for the next couple of posts I'd share my collection with you.  This one is the first topper I bought.  I got it at an estate sale.  I'm not sure what I paid for it, but I know it was $5 or less.  I figure the real bride must have married in the late 1950s or early 1960s.

What did your wedding cake topper look like?

P.S.  Happy Happy Wedding Day was a song by Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters.  You can hear a sample right here.
