We have had pets involved in many of our weddings. They have walked down the aisle, been carried into the reception and pictured on table numbers. They can be your flower girl, ring bearer, best man or maid of honor. Just remember, when planning to involve your pet in a wedding there are several things to be aware of. First does your venue or reception site allow pets? Most do not. If yours does, then make sure the pet is well behaved, well groomed and well dressed. We have done collars of flowers, doggy tuxes and tutus. Make sure someone will be responsible for getting the pet down the aisle and watching it during the reception.
But don’t despair; if the site does not allow pets there are other ways to include them. You can use their picture as a part of your table numbers, put their pictures on wine bottles or candy wrappers. Have them included in your engagement pictures and use one as your sign in mat picture. Some couples have their pet represented in cake on the wedding day. Personally I’m a little squeamish about cutting into my pet (even if it is cake) but that’s just me. Your beloved pet can be included in your montage shown at the rehearsal dinner or reception. You can even have him as a part of the wedding cake topper. There is no limited to the creative ways you can share your love of your pet with your wedding guests.
