UGH does this photo not just make you want to snuggle up with this fur BABY!
So for this months topic I have decided to focus on our furry favorites. This topic has been a conversation between Jesus and I as well for our big day. It's tricky right? You want them there to be a part of the moment but it also requires more attention to making sure they stay safe, that they aren't too disruptive ( because any dog in a new place with 200 people can get excited), and that they have everything they need at the venue during the event.
So while we debate this as a couple on if, or how, or who, or in what way we will have Chevy at ours... I figured I would go through some of the options that are out there!
Helping Announce!- Save the Dates
No I do not mean literally serving the bar, even as funny and adorable as that would be, I mean naming drinks after your furry friend or using their image as signage to show reference to them!
This idea is one of my favorites!! Especially if you already planned on doing a His and Her drink why not add another for them!!! This is one of our favorite ideas and I am betting you will see it at our wedding. There are soo many different graphic artists who can create these custom signs for you! Check out these Etsy Shops!
I will admit this idea I find SOO cute and I have not seen done before. I love the idea of sending guests home with treats for their fur babies. Sure it is an extra thing, but if your trying to find a way to represent your fur baby on your big day, why not send treats in their name?
There are a ton of homemade dog treat recipes you can DIY but you can also order baked dog goods at many pet stores and pet boutiques. Reach out to your nearest pet stores and see what they have. I would strongly suggest making sure any treats you send home with your guests you list ingredients in case their fur babies at home have allergies.
The Ring "Barker"
Of course...There is always the option of including your fur baby in the wedding itself. Whether that means asking a family member to help them walk down the isle, having them walk with you, acting in as the ring "barker", or simply sitting as a guest observing the nuptials.
For us, WOO I do not know. I think Jesus and I would love to have Chevy walk with me, or before me going down the isle. I adopted him over 7 years ago and I would love for him to be a part of our big day. We are so lucky to have found Jesus who loves us BOTH and has accepted us as a package deal. I mean he is technically the one who brought us together!! Oh you do not know that story?? Check out Ar Sceal, Nuestra Historia, Our Story for the full details on that.
Until next time!
P.S. Is this not the cutest photo! Thank you Focused Soul for capturing this image for us! Notice the bosses paw on top.....
