Four ways to include your pets in your wedding!

When you think about the most special people in your life, it can be hard to not want to include your pets in that list as well! Since your wedding day is the day when you'll be surrounded by those you love most, if you are able, your pets should be a part of that day too! (Plus they make for some pretty cute pictures!)

Below are 4 ways that you can include your paw-some companion on your most special day!

1. Get them their own accessories for the big day!

Getting your furry friend their own special wedding outfit is such a fun way to help them feel included too on the big day! Anything from a "My paw-rents are getting married" bandana, or even a matching bowtie is sure enough to help them feel and look their best on the big day!

2. Pose for pictures

We totally get it- sometimes pets can be a little hard to wrangle during big events like your ceremony, reception, or cocktail hour, so why not just invite your furry friend for a portion of the day to come take pictures with you and your spouse?! Plus, you'll get to spend some private time with your pet on your wedding day, away from loud noises and big crowds!

3. Signature cocktails, anyone?

Having a signature drink (or two!) on your wedding day is already a really cool thing to do, but why not include your beloved pets in your overall reception vibe? This idea is especially awesome if you can't physically have your furry friend with you on your wedding day, due to venue restrictions or travel!

4. Have a non-traditional ring bearer

How absolutely adorable is this ring bearer? LOVE! Any furry friend, no matter the size, would be a great addition to your ceremony to walk (or hop!) your rings down the aisle!
