Gator Fridays :: Gator Cake Toppers

Now, I know y’all have seen the fabulous cake toppers Bunnywithatoolbelt made us for our wedding. Shoot, these little babies inspired this blog! I guess you can say, Gator Bride started with the commissioning of these little characters. Thank you Hilary for bringing our little mascots to life!

Here we are, just chillin’ on our wedding cake. ♥

Since then, Hilary has received quite a few commissions for custom college-themed cake toppers. Just recently she sent me an album featuring some of her adorable Gator creations, along with their stories. Check them out below. :)

This first topper was actually commissioned by the fabulous Kari, who helped me find my wedding dress (and who was also getting married). She asked Hilary to create a topper for her Groom’s cake that would incorporate the Gators, the video game Halo, and the band Coldplay. I’m pretty amazed at what Hilary came up with. Perfection!

This little topper was commissioned by a University of Florida Alum for his Groom’s cake. The topper features the Groom enjoying his favorite past time with his beloved German Shorthair pup.

Aren’t these two adorable? Easily one of the cutest cake toppers I’ve ever seen. They make me so happy. :) Oh my goodness, and the bride even has a mini veil! Love the details.

I think I can look at Gator cake toppers all day! :)

Now, on to a few cake toppers that are hard for my little Gator eyes to see. Oh, I feel for these Gator Brides marrying Seminole Grooms.

I’m actually totally digging how Hilary gave the Seminole Groom a little mohawk of feathers. Totally a different take on the Seminoles. I wonder if the Groom is a musician?

This set is probably one of my favorites. Not loving who it’s for (that team out west), but loving the inspiration. The bride and groom met in the marching band, so they wanted little cake toppers showing their team spirit and instruments. Mr. Knight and I both played the flute. We fell head over heels for each other in middle school band class, but didn’t start dating till high school.

These cake toppers really get me going. Poor Gator groom!!!

We loved our cake toppers Hilary made us, so much that we just didn’t want to keep them boxed up. This past Christmas we made them into ornaments for our tree. Currently, they are displayed prominently on a shelf in our living room. I get so much joy from seeing them everyday.

Did you have sentimental cake toppers? Where are your cake toppers now? Did you come up with a creative way to display them? I’d love to hear!

Also, be sure to check out Hilary’s Etsy shop. She has a few super cute bride and groom cake toppers that are on super sale! Oh, and if you want to see more of Hilary’s AMAZING custom cake toppers, check out her Picasa Album.

    I was so excited to see my cake topper on your blog today. I’m the one who married the the Seminole! He’s no musician though…actually an attorney. (FSU law, too…HA!)

    Thanks to you for featuring your cake toppers which led me to finding Hilary. I believe she had made a mowhawk Seminole before and I just asked her to put him in a tux. We also added a little velvet bowtie to him and now that our wedding is over the toppers live on our mantle.
