Wedding cats

In my country, we call the dolls placed on the information desk of the wedding party "welcome dolls".
Sometimes Barbie in wedding dress stands with Ken.
A few couples order the dolls which are like them.
Four persons bought Runo's bridal dolls.

Lots of people love the stuffed animals decorated with flowers and ribbons.
Various animals can be welcome dolls.
