Why don’t you maybe add a picture of your dog in a little frame charm to your bouquet?

Then he can be with you in a special way…

are you cremating him? – sorry I don’t think thats spelled right-

I think PP has a good idea about pictures.

Oh, I am so sorry to hear this! Pets are really special and it’s obvious that you loved him a lot. I think a better alternative might be to bring a favorite photo of the two of you that you can look at that morning or some other time before the wedding. I know it’s not the same but it might make you feel like he is there in spirit.

@tofuma:  I am so sorry!  I would be devastated as well!  I plan to cremate my pet, but I think with flying and all, it’s probably going to be easier to get a locket with a photo of your pet in there.

I am sorry  you are going through this.  I know how hard this can be. I lost my cat a little over a month before my wedding.  I carry his collar with me in my purse all the time now.  I don’t know what the right thing for you to do is, but I say just give it a little time and you’ll figure out a good way to honor him.

I think you should do whatever feels right to you and your FI. I like the idea of a locket with Tofu’s picture pinned to your bouquet or somewhere under your dress, but do whatever seems like the best way of honoring your pup.

Big hugs, and I’m sorry for your loss.

Another vote for the picture and the locket.

TBH here, I think it’s a little strange to have your dog’s ashes with you.  You say he was your “baby” – with that reference that you were close with him, would you take a family member’s remains with you?  Just a thought…

I’m so sorry! I’ve had to put several dogs down over the years and it was the hardest thing ever! I’m very very sorry for your loss. I understand how important pets can be. Mine are like my furry children…they were my comfort during a job loss and through my divorce from my first husband.

 

Why don’t you maybe add a picture of your dog in a little frame charm to your bouquet?

This is a great idea!
