Reluctant Groom Wedding Cake Topper
Here’s the traditional bride, in her white dress, dragging the groom, who is dressed but apparently not quite ready to go. This polystone topper is just over four inches tall, just over six inches long, and it weighs nine ounces.
Amazon reviewer Jennifer Roberts describes this as “great for a funny, whimsical wedding” and says:
Ordered this for my mother for her wedding, she picked it out and I got it for her. It arrived quickly and was the bell of the ball at the wedding. My mom was so very happy with it, it made lots of commentary on the funny and cute aspects. if you want a fun and whimsical wedding this would make a great topper.. if you are more serious and traditional, this probably isn’t topper for you. This was well made and shipped well with no damage and received in good time with lots of room to spare for the wedding … definitely cute. and worth the cost.
Interestingly, this topper also comes in a version where the bride is the one being dragged by the groom:

When I first saw it, I was curious if it was very popular, but since there are over 170 Amazon reviews for it and it has a great rating, I guess it is!
Reviewer JessClassof08 describes why this was perfect for her wedding:
I searched the entire internet looking for this scene. Me and my husband had been engaged for a long time and I wanted to wait till we had more money to plan a wedding but my husband finally convinced me so this was exactly what I had to have on my wedding cake.
Everyone got a kick out of it and were amazed that I found something that so nearly described the lead up to our wedding. I only received one bad comment about this and I ended up changing the persons mind by explaining how many cake toppers there are were it the woman dragging the man. I thought this added the perfect comic twist to our beautiful wedding cake. I still laugh when I see the pictures and my husband thought it was hilarious.
