7 Ways to Include Your Pets in Your Wedding!

Your hair is perfect, your nails are done, you're dressed in your dream wedding dress, your best girlfriends are beside you, and you're about to say "I do" to the man you love. What is the only thing that could possibly make this scene any more perfect?

If you had your four-legged best friend with you! 


Including pets in the wedding has become increasingly popular over the last several years. Having your beloved dog, cat, bird, or any other pet along for the ride makes the wedding ceremony feel more complete for many couples. If you and your groom are thinking of including your pets in your big day, check out these fun ideas!



Make Them the Ring Bearer
Give your pet an integral role in the ceremony; let him bring you the rings! Outfit him in a fancy tuxedo or an adorable "ring bearer" shirt.

Give Your Flower Girl or Ring Bearer A Furry Escort
If you want to include your pets in the ceremony without upstaging your human ring bearer, let the kiddos walk them down the aisle.

Give Your Pet a Special Sign to Hold
Cute signs are a fun, simple way to convey a message to all of your guests. Why not station your pet next to the sign so he can help get your guests' attention?

Include Your Pets in Your Wedding Photos
You could include any type of pet imaginable in your wedding photos! Cats, dogs, birds, ferrets, pot-bellied pigs... Bring them all! 

Include Your Pets In Your Vows
If you and your groom opt to write your own vows, include your pets in your promises! Even if it's a simple reference ("I promise to love you as much as I love Whiskers"), mentioning your pets in your vows can be a great way to involve them.

Get Married On Horseback
If you've always been a horse girl, what could possibly be more perfect than exchanging vows while riding two beautiful horses?



Set Out Pictures of Your Pets
Photographs can be a great way to add interest to your reception. Whether you choose to set up a slideshow or accent your table decorations with framed photos, pictures can be a great way to include your pet. 

No matter how you choose to involve your pet, making them a part of your special day will undoubtedly make your day that much more special! If you have any other ideas for including your pets in the wedding, we'd love to hear them. Leave us a comment below!
