We LOVE our pets ( 1 giant dog and 2 cats) and I’m thinking about doing pet favors. Is this weird? All of our friends, family are animal lovers as well. I was thinking about wrapping up doggie treats (and kitty treats )in a clear bag with ribbon. Some kind of cute tag saying “from our ‘kids’ to yours”.
My question is: If you were a guest at a wedding would you take these favors for your pets? Or are we going to be stuck with a bunch of cat and dog treats?!

I would LOVE it but what about your guests that don’t have pets? Or are you certain that everyone has a pet? I think it’s an awesome idea.

I would, I love my dogs, but I am not sure about it unless everyone has a pet, like @Talisha said.

To honor our fur baby we are planning on using the adopt a shelter pet stamp that is coming out on rsvp cards.

I think favours should reflect who you are as a couple and who your guests are. Therefore, if your guests all have pets, then I think this is a fantastic idea.

@MsMarzipan – We’re doing the same for our STD’s! I agree that you need to consider how many of your guests have pets.

These would be in addition to our favors for our guests. I just don’t want people to go “Oh how cute!” but not take them! Some of my family members work for animal rescue organizations, and lots of friends have pets. I think they’d love it but don’t want to get stuck with a project that goes unnoticed? Do I put them with the regular favors? We’re doing a candy buffet. Maybe on a seperate table, next to candy table?

If it’s an edible treat, just be sure to make it clear to guests that it’s for their pet not for their consumption. Tasting one accidentally would be an unpleasant surprise!

We have 3 dogs and I like the idea. I’ve never heard of that before, but any pet lovers would think it was great.

I’m very careful about what my cats eat because they both have sensitive tummies, so I would not take the treats, but I think it’s a cute idea, and I know most people aren’t so careful about what their animals eat as I am.

I would only because I have animals. What about the people who do not have fur babies?

I think it’s a great idea. I was a little concerned about people without pets but I read your posts that said these are in addition. I would certainly take them home and give them to my fur babies.

I would totally take them home to my pup! It would probably make me feel less bad about leaving him to go party : )

Ok…here it is. We had zip lock bags with 2 milkbones in each. We found red and white paw print ribbon (matched our wedding colors) and tied a bow around each one. (The two cards on either side are something else)
Edit: The sign says “Our Mommy and Daddy Got Married! Please Bring Treats Home to our Friends!”
And people without dogs also got a kick out of it. And they didn’t feel left out, since we had (human) favors, a candy buffet, and a donation to the ASPCA in addition to these.
