TREND ALERT: Animals in Your Wedding #FurryFriends #PetsinMyWedding

Do you adore animals? If so, we suggest you jump on the trend-wagon and make plans to include them in your wedding. Fact is, if you and/or your fiancee are “animal people” it stands to reason that you would want to include them in your special day. After all pets are part of the family – so they should take part in your wedding where all your favorite people are gathered. It might be a bit more work and take a little extra planning, but including your beloved pet will take your wedding to the next level. And folks, these special wedding additions are super popular this year. So many weddings are incorporating furry friends in tons of creative ways!

Maybe you’ve been in love with horses since you were a little girl.

Conversely, could you possibly be described as a “crazy cat lady”?

Maybe his best friend is his Standard Poodle. Or you have a beloved French Bulldog. Add them to the mix on your wedding. Dogs make terrific ring-bearers and sign holders. Plus dogs are great fun ambassadors for your guests (and you!).

Are you having a rustic barn wedding? Consider surrounding yourselves with some farm-yard chickens like this lovely couple photographed by award-winning, top-rated Heather Parker Photography:

Donkeys, aplacas and llamas….oh my!

 

Perhaps you just want some darling, fuzzy friends for everyone to enjoy. Up the cute factor by adding floral crowns or garlands. Awwww, we don’t know which is more adorable; the baby deer, the fuzz-bun or the super-sweet dog!

Perhaps he’s always been fascinated with giraffes, or monkeys, or….. elephants!!! An elephant with the bride and groom is pretty exciting. This guy might just steal the show. And, talk about some extraordinary wedding pics!!!

If you are wondering where you can find less traditional animals, do a quick google search to find a company that services your area. Suggested searches: “rent farm animals, ” “exotic animals for your party,” “mini petting zoo rental,” etc.
