Our Nightmare Before Christmas (NBC) Wedding Cake

So you may not know this, but my husband and I had a Nightmare Before Christmas themed Wedding.  Yep, that's right, Jack, Sally, the whole shebang!

When we were planning our wedding I found it quite difficult to find Nightmare Before Christmas Wedding items that weren't super OTT or tacky.  This is probably why we kept ours subtle, with just a few placements of the actual characters (Invitations, Stationary and Wedding Cake) and why I made or designed it all myself and not because I'm a control freak!

Originally I was going to make my cake myself, (I do like to make things as stressful as possible) but luckily I finally listened to reason and we found a wonderful local hobbyist to make it instead :) She had never heard of the film, and when I showed her the toppers I could see her struggling to hold onto her smile lol.
I showed her my design and she diplomatically told me that it was definitely possible.  I was prepared for the fact that my cake may not look as great as I had imagined, but boy was I wrong - it was even better!






We thought our wedding was pretty normal - we did have Richard Cheese playing during the sit down meal, and we picked our entire evening reception playlist (with requests from guests every third song) so we could have Slipknot, Mudvayne, Foo Fighters etc, but we also played my favourite cheesy hits like Saturday night, YMCA and even Lil Chris!  However we later heard through the grape vine, that staff and the DJs had nicknamed it the goth wedding!  I'd love to see their faces if they catered or worked at an actual goth wedding ;)
