OMG! It would certainly be something to remember! But I personally would be scared of the lion if it was like just in the middle of the reception hall.

Wow!  I have never seen anything like that at a wedding!  Guests would definitely remember it.  I don’t think it would be too over the top, just super original.  What kind of wedding are you having?  Super formal or casual?  That might be something to consider.

HAHA WOW, that is crazy.  I think that would be pretty neat because it’s SO different.  But I have to say, when you said “he has years of experience, like 2.5”  My heart fluttered a bit!  I was expecting/hoping you’d say something more along the lines of 25 years!  😉  

EDIT:  How does your venue permit this?!

Unfortunately, I think it would be over the top. You really need to talk to him though. As a former zoo-keeper, I think it would be too much to expect those animals to stay calm in the face of all the extra crazy stuff that goes on at weddings. I personally wouldn’t put any of my guests in the position to be harmed on my wedding day, as animals, no matter “how well” you know them, are always unpredictable. But he knows his cats best.

Sorry,but yes,it sounds over the top to me. I also doubt you’d find anyone willing to allow it unless it was on someone’s private property. Who would want that responsibility and liability should something go wrong?

Oooh Kitties! I would do it if it was safe and everything… How awesome would it be to say you had lions at your wedding!?

Wow, I missed the 2.5 years part. That’s NOT long enough when you’re dealing with animals as dangerous as lions. Don’t get me wrong, I love lions, and would love to work with them some day, but even after 13 years of horses, I still admit I don’t always have the right reaction to a new situation. Are you sure you want to take the risk?

@bunny–I’m confused!  What’s wrong with the username?

Oh a drugged lion makes me so sad.  I keep picturing The Hangover—Mike Tyson’s drugged lion sobered up and ripped the hell out of that nice car…

@Troll–oh, haha I’m sorry.  Was the movie one a tiger?  He was scary.  A big lion in a tux sure would be memorable!  As a guest, I would probably smile, laugh say “awwww” and then be scared!  But I’d rememeber it forever.  If that’s the response you’re going for then rock it!

Miss Olive– it’s pretty common on the internet for people who post purposefully inflammatory content to boards like ours to call themselves trolls. It’s so well known that I can’t imagine someone would pick a username like this unintentionally. I’ve reported this post to the moderators, TrollyMcTroll.
