I’m harness training our most docile kitty to be the ring bearer!  He’s been doing a great job so far.  We’re still working on going where *I* want him to go and not going wherever he wants to go.  lol

My fiance and I adopted a dog, Derby, from an animal shelter a little over a year ago.  We both adore her and wanted to find away to have her represented at the wedding.  Instead of doing favors for the gifts, we’ve decided to make a donation to the shelter we got her from.  We’re used her photo and a little message written “from Derby” to create signs we’ll have out at the cocktail hour to let people know about the donation.

We had one of our dogs as our ring bearer. (Although she didn’t ACTUALLY carry the rings, she just got to walk down the aisle. If we would have been inside we would have let her carry the rings, but we didn’t want to lose them in the sand, they’d never be found!)

We have 3 dogs, but since we had a destination wedding we could only realistically bring 1 with us.

My older brother and SIL had their dog be their ring bearer. They tied a blue bow around his neck (their color was blue) then took thin wire, like a twist tie wire and put the rings on him that way. then my youngest brother walked the dog down the aisle with him! πŸ™‚ It was great. They dog is very well behaved so there was no issue.

We bought wooden numbers at Michaels/Joanne fabrics and painted them in our wedding colors. We then posed our 3 dogs with them and took pictures. We selected our favorite picture with each number, did some editing at rite-aid and had them blown up. We then put them in silver frames to use as our table numbers. I got the idea a few years ago from a lady who did something similar with her cats and posted it on her blog. I don’t have copies of our pictures on this computer but here is the inspirational blog post:http://thefitbride.wordpress.com/2009/09/16/my-favorite-diy-project/

We had one dog as ring bearer (and he did carry the rings on his collar) and the other as flower dog. They both were fabulous.

 

I like the idea of using photos of pets as table numbers. You could also have figurines of your cats made on etsy and then either put them on or around the cake. I agree with you, cats on a leash would be a much more challenging project. πŸ™‚

We had our dog as our ring bearer, if you look closely the rings are tied onto the pillow attached to her harness. (warning to tie them on carefully cause we almost lost my set πŸ™ )

and we also had her made on our cake topper.

We bought willow tree figurines–one was a girl holding a puppy and the other was a guy holding a puppy (we have two dogs). I would love to have my very badly misbehaved American Eskimo as a ringbearer and my very mellow Beagle as a flower girl–BUT we are getting married in a church, and generally non-human attendants are frowned upon =(
