Since our wedding is less than a week away, I wanted to share with you all a little look at one of the themes of our wedding – bunnies!
My dad is a rabbit in the Chinese zodiac and this year is also the Year of the Rabbit. We wanted to work bunnies into our theme a little bit but weren’t sure how – I was inspired though when I saw these images of a sample Easter table scape:

I thought the concept was so adorable and really wanted to do something similar for our wedding. Unfortunately, I had a few issues – my lack of any kind of artistic skill, and finding ~150 or so white chocolate bunnies that could be produced, at a reasonable cost. The last part was actually really difficult – everywhere was quoting me insane prices, and for not-so-attractive looking bunnies.
I had lost all hope when I randomly came upon the facebook page for The Chocolate Chicks. The Chocolate Chicks are Aimee and Terra – two amazing women who make delicious and creative chocolate treats. I really loved their shop as soon as I saw it – I just adore small businesses and especially when they are operated with so much heart by women entrepreneurs. Simply amazing and they were incredibly professional throughout all my emails with them – they even made a small batch and did a mockup of bunnies and took photos for me, and found a bunch of bunny molds.
We agreed on a bunny and the level of white chocolate (yes there are different kinds!) and the ladies shipped my order to me, overnight from upstate New York- all at an incredibly reasonable price. Below are some photos:
What ~140 white bunnies in a box looks like…
Each one was individually wrapped and packed with care!
I was SO incredibly impressed when I opened this package – words cannot even express how I felt. I think there are so few examples now of businesses that still operate with an eye of quality, integrity, and fair prices – it is such a wonderful surprise when you come upon one. The Chocolate Chicks are definitely that type of business – I would really and truly recommend them to anybody looking for items for an event. Oh, and- the bunnies are freaking DELICIOUS (I had one as soon as we opened the box!)
I can’t wait to share with you all pictures of the final product! Actually I myself have no idea what they will look like myself, as my planner is doing the design (remember what I said about no artistic ability)? We will also have a few more bunnies worked into the wedding in a few ways – below is one of them, a little preview
I saw this ring holder at Urban Outfitters and had to get it – it’s going to be holding our rings before the ceremony!
Married ladies – what were some of your themes? And single ladies – what do you think would be yours? I would love to hear them all!
