People Are Seriously Divided By Bride's Choice Of Cake Topper

A bride has caused a stir online by revealing a picture of her bizarre choice of a cake topper. 

The unusual topper made its way onto Reddit, where users were completely divided by the message it appeared to be sending. 

It featured a bride holding a rope lead attached to her groom, whose mouth was taped over by the word ‘yes’.

The photograph was captioned: “In a bridal group, she is looking for this topper. The word on the groom's mouth is yes [sic].”

The dominating role held by the bride - albeit in cake topper form - was met with outrage by some, many of whom reacted with red flag emoji. 

One Reddit user wrote: “If it was the bride that was tied up and gagged it would be a huge issue for people, but when it's groom that's shown like this people think it's funny or something OK to do.

“Either way it's not a good look for someone to be presenting their marriage like this.”

A second added: “This just annoys me so much because of the fact that forced marriage is a real thing that happens in a lot of countries, the subject matter isn't cute or funny, it happens to real people.”

A third wrote: “I am continually surprised by heterosexual cultures' way of making it seem like nobody is ever happy and they don't want to be there.”

A fourth, meanwhile, criticised the message while acknowledging that the toppers were cute.

They said: “Those are very cute, but this forced marrying trope isn’t always so funny.”

A fifth agreed, writing: “The figures themselves are adorable; but [the] situation they're posed in, yikes.”

Meanwhile, some users suggested that the couple were in a consensual dominant and submissive BDSM relationship.  

One wrote: “It's a BDSM topper.”

A second agreed, adding that as long as the couple are happy, there is nothing wrong with their cake topper.

They wrote: “Maybe, he enjoys his dominatrix partner and that is why he is getting married to her and he is so proud he wants the whole world to know about it, I guess. I say, to each his own and wish them good luck. What else can I say as I find it baffling, lol.”

Another went as far as to suggest that it was a ‘BDSM ceremony’. 

What do you think of the cake topper? Let us know in the comments.
