Stick with cash. Although they may like a pet portrait, I don’t think that is an appropriate wedding gift. If you have to give less cash than you planned, they will understand, everyone is stuggling these days.

I think that’s sweet if it’s what they wanted!

If they are as obsessed with their dogs as I am, they will probably love a portrait of their pets. Its very sentimental and more thoughtful that cash. But it really depends on the personality of the couple.

I think it depends on the people, but as their friend you probably know if it’s something they would like. If you know it is something they would really want and that they would display in their home, then go for it!

I know my old co-worker commissioned a pet portrait for their friends’ wedding a couple years ago! It’s not for everybody, but I know she said they loved it.

Omg I would LOVE that.  So much more thoughtful than a china place setting (not that I don’t want those…).  Go for it.

I think that’s an awesome, unique gift. Maybe wrap up a “certificate” for you to paint the portraits in a box with some gourmet dog treats or some pretty new dog bowls that match their decor (they sell cheap, fancy ones at stores like TJMaxx, Ross, Tuesday Mornings) to make it a more “formal” gift 🙂

I love that idea! I think it’s appropriate considering they’ve hinted at it before.

Yes, so long as you cater to their requests.

I think that would be a sweet gift.  It would be a little odd if unsolicited.

I agree that it would be nice if they’ve previously stated that’s something they would like.
