I found this linked online, so apparently people do put it into weddings!

    The Owl and the Pussy-Cat went to sea
        In a beautiful pea-green boat,
    They took some honey, and plenty of money,
        Wrapped up in a five pound-note.
    The Owl looked up to the stars above,
        And sang to a small guitar,
    ‘O lovely Pussy! O Pussy, my love,
        What a beautiful Pussy you are,
                You are,
                You are!
        What a beautiful Pussy you are.’

    Pussy said to the Owl, ‘You elegant fowl,
        How charmingly sweet you sing.
    O let us be married, too long have we tarried,
        But what shall we do for a ring?’
    They sailed away for a year and a day,
        To the land where the Bong-tree grows,
    And there in the wood a Piggy-wig stood,
        With a ring in the end of his nose,
               His nose,
               His nose!
        With a ring in the end of his nose.

    ‘Dear Pig, are you willing, to sell for one shilling
        Your ring?’ Said the Piggy, ‘I will.’
    So they took it away, and were married next day,
         By the Turkey who lives on the hill.
    They dined on mince, and slices of quince,
        Which they ate with a runcible spoon;
    And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
         They danced by the light of the moon,
                 The moon,
                 The moon!
        They danced by the light of the moon.

That is adorable! I would love it. However, I have a private cat sanctuary and already used a cat groom and bride motif on our STD cards and FI has informed me that we will have nothing cat related at the wedding. Since he has to put up with mega cats everyday, I can see his point! LOL
