Are you wondering how to make your lovable four-legged friend a part of your wedding? With most American households owning a pet, the importance of them being present on your big day is becoming less of a hassle. More venues than ever are open to the idea of pets!
Here are some popular ideas to incorporate your pet in your wedding:
Ring Bearer or Flower Girl
For the couple that is willing to share their spotlight, perhaps the most special and involved way to have your pet at your side on your wedding day is to have them walk down the aisle as the ring bearer or the flower girl.
This idea is great but requires some preparation. You may have to leave a trusted friend or family member in charge of your pet that morning. Make sure your pet is on its best behavior by having that friend or family member exercise your dog before the ceremony to tire them out. Your pet may require several practice runs to make sure they perform and don’t get anxious at the ceremony. You may even need to enlist a special dog trainer to make sure everything goes according to plan.
Don’t forget that you’ll also need to assign someone the task of watching your pet after your wedding.
Getting married in a house of worship or a venue with a no animals policy? No worries! There are still a variety of options for your pet to be a part of your special day.
Photos are a wonderful way to incorporate your furry friend in your special day. Have a friend or family member transport your pet to an animal-friendly location for your formal photos. Working with a photographer to incorporate your pet in some of your shots is a memorable way to commemorate your special day with your four-legged friend. Your pet might also enjoy squeezing into a professional photo booth with you and your guests!
Getting Ready with the Bridesmaids or Groomsmen
An option for those with animal-friendly locations at their disposal is to allow their pet to be involved in the getting ready process. Featuring your pet in a hotel room or other location with your bridesmaids or groomsmen is a wonderful way to remember and involve your pet in the wedding, and you will get some adorable photographs in the process.
Cake Topper or Stationery
If all else fails and your pet is not able to physically attend the big day, what better way to make them a part of your wedding than to include their likeness on your wedding stationery or cake topper?
Many companies can create custom cake toppers that include your pet. You may also ask your stationer to use a photograph or creative drawing of your pet to include on your paper goods for your wedding, making sure no one forgets about your pet on your special day.
Whether physically or in spirit, there are a vast array of choices when deciding to include your pet in your memorable day.
