I am crazy about our dog – General Patton!
So when my bride’s start to plan their most special day, they always ask, “How we can incorporate our family pet into the wedding?” Sometimes people want to have the pet at the wedding to participate in some way however logistics don’t always make this possible. Here are a few fun ways to include your furry family member in your most special day without having to break out the leash…
1. Postage: Perhaps you have an adorable photo of your pet that you can upload to www.zazzle.com and make it into custom postage for the save the dates or the invitations. This way each guest will receive the invite from the “whole” family!
2. Wedding Party: You could make the pet an honorary Bridesmaid, Groomsman, Flower girl or Ring bearer! You could take photos of the pets and frame them with a sign that says “Honorary Bridesmaids” and place them on the guestbook table where each guest can see your important family member!
3. Favors: Instead of having a traditional favor you could make a donation to your local animal shelter and then have your baker provide cookies in the shape of your pet with a tag that says “In Lieu of a favor, we have made a donation in your honor to Pet Helpers.”
