Your fur baby is a part of your family.  For many new couples, a dog, cat, horse, iguana, pet crab and goldfish are the very first steps to having a human pack of their own someday.  For many people, having fur babies is not just for fun, but it actually makes people healthier.

For one, fur babies are great companions.  You are never alone when you have a fur baby.  They love unconditionally.  Dogs and other fur babies also keep their people more active decreasing blood pressure, and managing cholesterol levels.  All in all, snuggly fur babies make their people happy.  Why not include them on the wedding day?  Here is a list of ways:

Ring “Bear”

Make your fur baby a ring bearer.  Place the wedding ring on a sparkly collar as he walks down the isle delivering the rings.    As he cutely walks down the isle, he will be a hit with the entire wedding ensemble as you hear “oohs and ahhh’s”.

Escort Down the Isle

If you are having a farm or barn wedding, invite your horse to walk you down the isle or usher you in a horse drawn carriage to the ceremony.  After the ceremony ride away in a getaway to spend a few moments alone with the groom.  You will treasure the portraits the photographer captures of this moment.

“Family” Portraits

Portraits of the bride and groom with their fur baby are something you will always treasure.  How often do you get a chance to get professional photographs of your snuggly cuties?  Dress them up in something adorable for the wedding photographs.  

The Hit of the Party

Fur babies are always the hit of every party.  They know just how to capture the heart of your guests.  Some fur babies become quite adept at dancing.  Our Havanese loves to entertain us by her cute spin/karate/dancing.  You may not want to do this with a clydesdale though.

They Relieve Stress

Fur babies have one job:  to love you.  They will be there on the wedding day to give kisses, affection and treats.  Mostly they will help you not to become stressed.  Wedding days can be hectic and stressful.  Take a fur baby vacation throughout the day to relax.

Always remember to have a member of the family in charge of the fur babies so you can enjoy your guests and husband.  Weddings happen once in a lifetime!  Enjoy the day!
