Announcing your Wedding
Before the actual wedding can take place, your guests need to know about it! A lovely and alternative save the date option could include a photoshoot with your pet. This can be a really fun and lighthearted way of inviting your guests, and you’re free to get as creative as you want.
The Morning of the Wedding
Take the time in the morning to have your fur baby with you, when you get ready. There are a lot of emotions the day of your wedding and what better way to stay clam than having your fur baby with you.
The Ring Barker
Your furry friend is a big part of your life together and shares a lot of the love that you and your partner have for each other. The role of the ring bearer is traditionally taken by either the best man or a child from your family, but if you’d like to opt for something a little more alternative then why not choose your pet? After all, pets are often described as being close to having a child of your own!
Meow of Honor
Having your pet involved in your wedding day is an easy choice for a lot of animal lovers. But, perhaps, the biggest role you can give your pet is to have them as your maid of honor! As long as your pet is comfortable within a group of people and chill about having lots of photos taken, then there’s no reason you can’t have your favorite pal stand with you at the altar!
Walk with them Down the Aisle
As long as your pet doesn’t have a nervous temperament, walking with them down the aisle to your love is a gorgeous way of involving them in your big day. This creates some beautiful memories and gorgeous photos. Plus everyone will love the change of tradition.
Your pet is a beloved member of your family, so as long as they aren’t camera shy, it’s an adorable idea to make sure you have some photos taken with them on your big day! This lets you involve your pet in your wedding celebrations and also gives you some amazing memories to keep on your mantelpiece.
Your wedding day is a special day for you and your partner to share with your loved ones. This should include friends, family, children and, not forgetting, fur babies! We hope you will consider on bringing your loved pets with you on wedding day.
