Wedding Cake Jem

The big day is coming up on the 19th and I'd like to cut out a picture of a Jem and have it strapped aroung the groom figurine on top of the cake. Which one do you think I should use of the ones below? I wan't something not-dark to contrast the black in the painted-on tux

BTW: any other advice would be apprieciated.

LNG
SK
DNA
VWH (keeping with the wedding theme)
VSBL (my last Jem as a bachelor)

7vwh of course!
how do you guys have all your wifes/girlfriends accept your love for the guitar so much? i mean my baby also knows and lives with the fact i'm into axes so much, but i dont think she'd appreciate if i gave it a more important place in OUR relationship... and i wouldnt do that myself!

Does your wife know about this? I mean, if she's down with it then definitely the 7VWH. However, you have to remember, she's probably been dreaming about this day since she was a little girl, just as most women do. I'm not so sure that her fantasy would include a little paper guitar being attached to the groom on her wedding cake. Just my opinion of course.

yeah what i think!
if she's ok with it, then well nice for you!! but i believe that sometimes one's passions should be recessed in the background

Mike of course it has to be swirled, go for the DNA. I know people get sensitive about this kind of stuff, so stick the paper guitar on the cake just before they cut it and take some pics. In the real scheme of life if we were born just 200 years ago our average lifespan would be 30-40. Now we get to worry about a paper guitar on a wedding cake....oh boy.

Well the thing that often gets forgotten is that a wedding is a union between TWO people. It's not just "her" big day... If she thinks it is, leave now while you can.

but then it's a compromise for both of you. if she's going to let you have a guitar on the cake, make sure it's the VWH or another one that blends in to the scheme of the day.

A VWH won't be visible against he white background of the cake, even if it's strapped on the 'groom'

Use one of the brighter colors that will stand out. To tell you the truth, you'll be the only one at the wedding who gets the joke anyway.
