  • Contest :: Win Custom Cake Toppers from Bunnywithatoolbelt!

    Y’all remember the little cake toppers that started it all?

    How could you forget? I probably write posts about how much I love them at least once a month!

    Well the artist behind these adorable toppers is Hilary from Bunnywithatoolbelt and she is currently running her annual “How’d ya get Hitched” contest on her blog! Oh, and I did I mention I’m a judge? {hooray!} Be sure to read my special “Meet the Jury” interview. :)

    This year she will be giving away two sets of cake toppers. AWESOME! Here’s the details on how you can win you and your fiance some adorable custom cake toppers!


    Tell Hilary your cutest, goofiest, or most swoonfully romantic story of your “I do moment.” Then choose one of the designs on the Bunny with a Toolbelt Etsy site, her online album of cake toppers, or one you spotted hanging out at the Chapel of Bunny Love that she can use to illustrate your saga on her blog. Send a picture of the two of you to sweeten the pot,and she’ll publish your stories between now and 11:59 PM, Pacific Standard Time on May 15, 2011.


    Then, we’ll let the voting begin. One winner will be determined by the one who gets the most unique comments from readers who will declare which story made them go “awwww!” or “ohhhhhh!” or “mmmmmmmmm!” A second winner will be selected by Hilary and an esteemed panel of judges, including Reverend Steve Sharp from A Beautiful Ceremony NW, Kimberly from Gator Bride {that’s me!}, and Rebecca Amblin from Origin Flowers.

    Adorbs! Especially for those who have “little ones” and want to include them on their wedding day!

    The two winners will get a custom cake topper set that Hilary will make with whatever critters make their hears go purrrrrrr!! She will also give you the keys to the castle where you can order custom invitations, big gifts for the wedding party, or little ones for the guests–all with the picture of your adorable Bunny with a Toolbelt wedding cake topper on them and whatever personalized text you like!

    The “We do” little monsters. So cute! Bunnywithatoolbelt

    Please limit your entries to 500 words. This contest is intended for currently engaged couples. She’ll post them as they come in. Email your story to Hilary at bunnywithatoolbelt@gmail.com.

    There are currently 2 blogged engaged couples so far. Only 2! So, if you’re engaged (or know someone engaged), submit your story and have your friends and family comment on your entry once it’s been published! You could be the winner of some very adorable cake toppers.

    Deadline is May 15th, 2011!
