Pawsitively Awesome Ways to Include your Pets in Your Big Day!

in honor of national pet day

As pet lovers, we know how important our furry friends are to us and how we want to include them in all our special moments. This includes our wedding day! With a little planning you can capture the love you and your partner share for your pets.

Make them part of your ceremony

If you trust your pet to be on their best behavior, consider having them being part of your ceremony as the ring bearer or flower dog! You can also have them stand up next to you during the ceremony, by having a designated spot to sit or lay down.

Include them in your engagement photos

Incorporating your pets into your engagement photos will really highlight your love for them and create memories that you and your fiancé will cherish forever! Not only do your pets make great props but they also can help make you more comfortable in front of the camera. Just be sure to remember the treats to help with your pets' poses!

Name specialty cocktails after them

If your furry friends can't physically be a part of your wedding, you can still honor them. Create signature drinks that are inspired by your pet's unique personality! Name your cat inspired drink “The Crazy Lady” or your turtle's name “The Otis”. You can also keep it more generic and name your specialty cocktails after a breed, like “The Royal Retriever”. No matter how you choose to incorporate your pet, naming your specialty cocktail is a fun personal touch.

Incorporate them in your décor! Cake Toppers or Napkins, perhaps?

Don’t be afraid to get creative with your pet's involvement in your big day! Another way is by incorporating small details in your wedding décor. You can do this in so many ways! From getting a replica of your pet to include on your cake topper or making customer napkins with a picture of your furry friends. If a lot of your friends are also animal lovers, think about incorporating a “treat wedding favor” that their pets can enjoy as well! However you include your pets, your guests will love the personal touch and it can be a great conversation starter!

With a little planning you can capture the love you and your partner share for your pets! Incorporating them into your wedding day is a great way to personalize special day!
