So I am having my adorable little white furballs in the wedding. They will be walked down the aisle by my aunt — prior to my Made of Honor. In the program I have identified my aunt as the Pet Attendant, but I"m wondering how I can put my pets names in their. I think it looks kind of wierd to write:
Pet Attendant…………………..Jane Doe, Aunt Pets………………………..Lassie and Toto
Any ideas on whether to include pet names in program and how to do so, ALSO — if anyone has had their pets in the ceremony or been to wedding like that, do you have any tips, suggestions or advice???

My beastly creature is going as "Best Dog." But I’ve also seen dogs appear as flowerdogs or ringbearers. BTW, I love the position you created of "pet attendant." I’ve been trying to find a role for a neighbor that is basically godmother to my dog, and that’s just perfect. If you don’t mind my stealing it, I’d be most appreciative!

I think the way you have it is great. Will you add anything to clarify pet roles (i.e. ring bearer)?

@Hotcocoa — Of course I won’t mind! I have children serving as ring bearers and flower girls. I guess techincally the dogs are my bridemaids. But I’m not crazy about Dogmaid or Bridedog. how about Barkmaids?

I’m also having my beautiful Bernese Mountain Dog as a member of the bridal party. He’s going to accompany my flower girls, with a pack that consists of a berry basket on either side which will be filled with petals for the girls. He’s also going to have a wreath of flowers around his neck. My plan is for him to downstay near us for the ceremony, with my neice wrangling him as needed. Usually once he gets in a spot he’ll stay, but who knows with all the nervous energy.
This reminds me that I need a blog post about Catch in my planning blog.
