Disappointed? Instead of planning your pet’s perfect day, envision how you would incorporate them into yours. Here are some ideas:
- Take a photo: Feature them on your Save the Dates. Nothing says happy family, like a couple’s pet grinning as he announces your special day. Use a sign to reveal the date in the photo.
- Walk down the aisle: Have them act as ring bearers and tie the ring around your pet’s neck; let a bridesmaid or groomsman walk (or carry) them down the aisle. Or dress your pets up as bride and groom and have them lead the bridesmaids down the aisle.
- Dress them up for pictures: Specially made bow ties, tiaras, diamond encrusted pet collars, tuxedos, and yes wedding dresses will include them in your festivities and pictures.
- Cake toppers: Cake toppers are usually customized based on hair and skin tone. For pet lovers, have one customized to add your pet at the bride and grooms feet.
Pets don’t have a dedicated wedding planning website, but they are our family. Enjoy incorporating them on your special day.
