If I were a guest at that wedding I would total be occupied for a good while! Reply Oh my gosh! Got the email about my Playmobil centerpiece and arbor kit being posted on the montage! Thank you so much (my dh is laughing his socks off)! Kudos to our photographer for the shots! 😀 Reply Ha! They were definitely hard to resist. 😉 Reply Wow. Playmobil! I admit it though, my feelings are torn. I confess, I have been planning on doing 'me and him' playmobil wedding figures for a cake topper and thought it was an original idea (after all most people think a 23 year old collecting playmobil a little odd!). On the other hand -playmobil rocks! It's good to see it getting some love. Reply Ruth – if your heart is set to doing it, go for it! What matters are what you and your soon-to-be bonded mate think will be a) the awesomest thing to have on your special day and b) what truly reflects you both. 😀 Reply It IS original. And you thought of it! And so did she! And you're both individual's that shared a thought, "WE COULD USE PLAYMOBIL PEOPLES!!! ZOMG HOW COOL IS THAT!?!?!?" And you're both right, it IS cool! And it's OK that you both had the idea. Keep it, rock it! Reply Thanks so much for featuring my photo, but that cartoon superhero image of us is our actual invitation, and not our Save-the-Date. Reply OMG i want that opera stole. And why don't people wear things like that to the opera anymore? And why don't I go to the opera!?!?! 1 agrees Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
