If you have kids with the person you’re about to marry, it’s almost a given that they’ll make an appearance in the wedding party. But what about your furry babies? Here are our top three ways to let them be part of your day!



1. Ring Bearer

If you have a dog that enjoys its leash, this would definitely be an adorable option, especially for couples with a lack of young children in the family to choose from! You can tie the pillow to a harness, just be sure everything is secured well and that your pet is already comfortable in what he/she will be wearing!

2. Photo shoot

If you know your pet doesn’t do well around strangers but still want he or she a part of your special day, consider adding them to your wedding photos! Pose with your furry child after the ceremony and have somebody take it home when you’re done if you live close, or take some pictures before you leave the house in the morning!

3. Table numbers/Escort cards

If your cat or dog is going to be far away on your day (for example, if you have a destination wedding), consider putting their picture on your escort cards or table numbers. You can spend a day during your engagement taking adorable pictures of your favorite snuggle buddy, and decorate the pictures accordingly!
