in Smurf Figures

Bride & Groom Smurfs

If someone had asked me what I would do at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Royal Wedding to make it different to previous royal weddings, I would advise them to add a Bride & Groom Smurfs on the top of their wedding cake so the whole world could see.

In 1992 Schleich released, eight new smurfs which included Bride and Groom. All these smurfs were made in Germany. The Bride Smurfette, #40412 can be found holding her bouquet of pink flowers, wearing a white wedding dress with pink flowers around her hat. The Groom, #40213 can be foundwearing a blue bow tie, red flower on his chest and a white top hat. 

Both were sold by Schleich from 1992 right through to 2014 and didn’t change much during this time. Some collectors questioned why the Groom was not wearing a pink flower and bow tie to match with Smurfette’s flowers. But overall both Bride and Groom are still very popular with collectors, especially those about to be married. 

In 2013, Schleich released Bride & Groom, #20746 which was one of the first times Schleich combined two figurines. The Groom is wearing a black top hat and tails and is carrying his bashful Bride who is wearing a long white wedding gown. This was part of the 2013 Celebration theme series and was sold up until 2016.

The last Bride and Groom smurfs released by Schleich was in 2017 as part of the Occasion theme series. In my opinion these are the most disappointing ones, as they are seriously lacking any cuteness or personality. The Groom, #20796 looks like he is sleep walking which is a never good sign especially when your wedding day is meant to be one of the biggest days of your life. It was displayed in the catalogues wearing a black top hat tails but was actually sold wearing a grey top hat and tails and the Bride, #20799 just looks bored. 

So if you are looking to get some smurfs to be displayed  on your wedding cake, stick to the Bride and Groom produced back in 1992, I highly recommend them as people just adore them. Well, at least from my experience they did. 

Keep on Smurfin

  1. You mention the Celebration bride and groom was one of the first double figures. Do you have a post anywhere that talks about all of the double figures? If not, that would be a neat one to read, especially if you could include pictures of them.
