I love multi-purpose wedding stuff. One of our orange coral centerpieces sits on my bookshelf as decor, and every time I look at it I get the warm and fuzzies thinking about our wonderful day. I also wear my wedding flip flops all the time with the same results. So when I saw Tribe member Kim's (aka. “uloveit“) wedding cake topper choice, thought it was a great idea! Kim found a pair of adorable salt and pepper shakers to adorn the top of her cake…
Kim's cake topper:
According to her wedding planning update, she's going to accent this cake topper with the Mary-Chapin Carpenter lyrics, “Grow old along with me” on the cake. Romantic overload.
Kim inspired me to look into some other salt and pepper cake toppers (because how nice would it be to have a functional cake topper that you could use all the time?), and found an incredible array of choices. So I'm gonna share with you my favsies…

Bride and groom:
This one's great for a silly take on the traditional cake topper. And it won't freak out the squares.
We've feature a lot of couples who have made motorcycles a big part of their wedding. This pair would be a really bad-ass addition to a biker's wedding cake.
The great thing about these guys is that their so freaking cute I wanna tear my hair out, and they can work with same sex couples perfectly. They also have a butt-load of other cute animals shakers as well — horses, elephants, mice, cats, hippos and “french kissing” snails!
I actually own these guys. I totally should have used them as our cake topper for our Maui wedding.
I think this one would be awesome for offbeat couples who already have a kid or are expecting. Penguins mate for life and just have the ca-yutest babies!!!
There are so many different types of dogs to choose from. My favorite, as a Boston Terrier owner, is the one pictured above. (Btw, just found my mom's Xmas gift!) They also have bulldogs, poodles, yorkies, boxers, beagles, labs, chow chows, sheep dogs, wiener dogs, pugs in argyle sweaters and so many more.
Okay, I'm gonna stop geeking out now. Check 'em out yourself because they're so many more to see. And if you end up using one of these options, leave your choice in the comments!
