Ring bearer or flower girl, let your pet be the center of attention by letting them walk down the aisle, Katherine did on her big day!  The ceremony is all about cementing you and your fiance as a family. So it only makes sense that all members of the family be present, including pets! This is a great way to show everyone you love just how much your pets mean to you.

Don’t have a pet-friendly venue?  Then let your pets be there in spirit!  Name your signature cocktails after them, just like Elizabeth and Dennis did, and they even added their furry faces to the menu!  You could also use their likeness as a cake topper, or even craft an amazing grooms cake in their honor.  Even if they can’t be there physically, you can still know that they were represented on your big day and let guests know how much you love them!
