Some ideas inspired by #hugyourcatday on 4 June and June’s #adoptacatmonth
Saving your bouquet to be preserved or framed?
Or fancy something more fun?
Why not toss a soft toy?
The catcher is nominated to support a rescue pet, either by adoption or donating their wedding gift donation to animal rescue.
If you’re a pet owner or animal lover, there are heaps of ways to incorporate them into your celebration.
Here are some more:
Enter on a horse, be escorted by a llama or pig, or have a best doggo or moggo.
Theme your vows around your favourite animal(s), use your ‘pet names’, or promise to love your pet together.
Have guests join in with promises led by your mynah bird, parrot or budgie saying ‘I will’.
How about an owl ring bearer, or another bird of prey to swoop in dramatically with a velvet pouch with the rings?
Have your rings threaded on your pet’s collar, or presented in a pet bowl.
You may exchange collars or leads instead of rings if you like!
Pussy bells make a nice a decoration on the bouquet, favours, or sewn onto a garter or shoe clips.
A sand ceremony could look pretty with colourful fish tank gravel – or cat litter?!
A paw or claw print signature on your certificate can be done on the day, or beforehand.
If you like I can scan in a photo of the print or of your pet for your personalised certificate.
Your love story can talk about the role of your pet or animals, or you may have a poem or reading about animals, maybe pet puns or phrases woven in.
Not just at the reception, but for your ceremony too.
Have an animal themed quiz, or game – human buckaroo?
Pin the tail on the…?
Wear leopard, snake or cow print?
Animal print settings and décor?
Have the ceremony at a farm, safari park, zoo or aquarium.
