28 Jul 5 Ways to Incorporate Your Pet in Your Wedding
Let’s face it, our pets are our best friends and companions. Of course, it makes sense for brides and grooms to want to incorporate their pet into their wedding, but sometimes this isn’t exactly practical. That’s why many couples are taking this opportunity to find fun ways to include them in their big day. If you’re getting ready at home or able to bring your favorite furball to the venue this can be an awesome opportunity for photos. If that doesn’t work, there are a bunch of creative ways your furry best friend can be a part of your big day.
Having signature drinks has become extremely popular for brides and grooms of today. This is so popular in fact that Zola states that 85% of couples plan to create and serve signature cocktails at their receptions. Coming up with a quirky name for these drinks can be difficult so why not think of a way to incorporate your pet? Whether you name your drinks after them or have an artist paint a small picture of them on the sign it’ll be a big hit. Some great easy ideas for names are to simply call the cocktail “The (insert pet name)” like The Henry or The Molly. Another fun way is to find a pun or rhyme. Some great examples are “Bella’s Brews” or “The Jingle Bella” for a holiday theme!
Custom Coasters or Napkins
Coasters and napkins are often the last thing brides and grooms think about when planning a wedding. But what if this could be an opportunity to show off an adorable drawing of your pup? If you have a friend who’s a great illustrator or want to hire an artist these can be a simple (and pretty cost-effective) way to include your pet in your wedding. Another great bonus is every time you look at them, you’ll be reminded of your favorite furry friend!
Who says your pet can’t be on your cake topper? Some couples are completely replacing the traditional bride and groom topper for one of their pets. Others are ordering custom toppers with silhouettes of them that include a pet for a fun family topper.
Invitations and Stationery
This is definitely an easy place to include your pets! Whether you use a small drawing on the designed invitations or an adorable photo of you, your fiancé, and your pet for your save the date, your guests will love this small but meaningful touch!
Have you ever thought of a custom pocket square, handkerchief or cuff links? It seems everything nowadays can be custom made so why not wear a photo of your pet? These subtle touches through accessories can be an awesome way to get meaningful pictures and feel like your furry friend is there with you.
