At any wedding I’ve ever been to, I haven’t been all that interested in the favors, a tea bag, a candle, a pack of flower seeds etc…  The only ones that I’ve really appreciated were the donations either in memorial or for a cause that really meant something special to the couple.  And who doesn’t love dogs?!?  I think that all of your guests would be so touched, and chances are this cause is near and dear to them as well.

You should definitely go with this idea. It’s personal, from the heart, and means a lot to both of you.

What a touching story.

I am so sorry to hear of our loss..  My heart goes out to you during this time.

I think that’s a beautiful gesture!  It’s very sweet and compassionate.   I don’t know what I would do if I lost my pooch.  She’s such a part of the family.

I am a complete dog lover and went through a very similar experience with having to put my dog down because of the same illness. My fiance and I are thinking of donating to a charity in replacement of favors as well. I think your gesture absolutely fits into your wedding and everyone should be honored to be attending a wedding for 2 people with such big hearts! Be prepared for some tears, (as I know I would get all misty at first glance of what the favor was) but also know it is a way to honor your beloved pup. Very sweet and sincere!

I LOVE this idea!

 Reading your post almost makes me start to cry at my desk. We also have a dog who is almost the center of our lives.  …and we also talk to our pets alll the time too 🙂   The idea of loosing her is just too sad to think about, so I really have sympathy for your guys.

I thnk the idea of honoring your love for your pet, as well as anmials in general is WONDERFUL.

Life isn’t always sweet and perfect.  Sometimes it’s messy and hard. Thinking about the dog is both happy AND sad. But, it’s real. There is such a stong love that you have for your dog. I think it is wonderful to show that and have your dog be a part of your special day atleast in spirit.

Good luck with everything. Sending you hugs from one dog owner to another
