Fun Ways to Incorporate Your Pet into Your Wedding
You're about to get married, and you have the perfect dress, ring, and venue. But wait—what about your pet? That's right: your wedding doesn't have to be all about you. It can be a special day for both you and the animal you love most in the world. Here are some fun ideas for incorporating pets into your big day!
Pet Bridal Party Members
This is a fun way to incorporate your pet into your wedding day because it can be done in a variety of ways. Your pet could be the flower girl or ring bearer or even just walk down the aisle with you!
Since the ceremony is one of the most important parts of your wedding, it's important to make sure that your furry friends are involved. You should have a pet-friendly officiant and venue so that any pets can attend, but there's more you can do to keep everyone happy.
You can also plan ahead by picking out an outfit for your pet that coordinates with yours. If possible, have a professional photographer take pictures of your two together so you'll always have memories of them together on this special day!
The first thing you should do is think about your theme. If it's a wedding with a lot of flowers and lace, then the pet-themed decorations at the reception might be a little out of place. If your venue is outdoors, or if you're having an outdoor reception or ceremony, then there are plenty of ways to include your pet into the décor without making it look too cliche or tacky.
One idea is to make centerpieces using old toys from their favorite games and chew toys.
Another great way would be to have table names based on your pet's names and nicknames.
Have drinks named after your pets available at the bar.
Wearable Pet Memories
Wedding bands with their pet's paw print are a popular idea among couples, but there are other fun options too. Cufflinks are a great accessory to pair with any suit, and they make a thoughtful gift for grooms.
Party Favors Inspired by Your Pet
Here are a few tips for making sure that your party favors and your pet are remembered for all the right reasons:
Put your pets face on the gift bags
Pack doggie bags for guests with pets of their own, from your dog to theirs, with bones and a ball
We hope that these ideas have inspired you to incorporate your pet into your wedding. The best part is that they're easy to implement, and the whole family can get involved from start to finish!
