Pet of Honor
If your pet lives up to the title of “man’s best friend,” then he or she absolutely deserves the role of Pet of Honor on your special day. You’ll have to save the task of carrying your train and giving a speech to a human friend, but you can count on your furry one for all the love and support you need. Be sure to check if your ceremony and reception venues are pet-friendly beforehand!

Preps Partner 
Say goodbye to pre-wedding jitters and cold feet when your favorite friend is there to distract you with their cuteness. Whether you’re getting ready at home or at a hotel, having your pet by your side has a unique way of making you feel calm and relaxed. It’s also a great time to sneak in a quick photoshoot for keepsakes you can take with you on this new journey.

Model for Your Wedding Stationery 
Honor your pet by including them in your wedding stationery. It’s common practice to name your entourage in your invitation suite, so if your pet has played a big role in your love story, why not give a special mention to them too? Other than wedding invitations, you can also have your pet model for signages, giveaways, or wedding decor!

Flower Girl or Ring Bearer 
You can train your pets to join your entourage and walk down the aisle. Move over traditional humans, these pets will be the star of the show. Next only to the bride, of course! Start training with a flower in tow and make your way to a pillow carrying “your rings.” Just to be sure, entrust the actual bands with the Best Man to avoid any unwanted surprises.

Cake Topper 
If you would prefer your pets mingle and enjoy the festivities, you can order miniature figures to play the role of cake toppers. Your wedding cake will surely stand out from the rest and no guest would dare sneak a bite with your guard pets on duty. It will be such an adorable idea to make them part of your cake cutting tradition.

Family Member
Last but not the least, you can give your furbabies the role of family. Have them stand with you at the altar or plan a family shoot post-nuptials. Either way, when you look back on the photos of this special day, you’ll see them with you every step of the way. You can also save them a spot next you at the reception to make sure they don’t miss any of the action.
