In the past month we’ve kicked Wedding planning into over drive (about 2 more months to go!). Unfortunately we can’t have our little dachshund at our wedding/ reception and he is our world! So I am trying to incorporate him as much as possible, but now I’m worried I’m incorporating too much of him. We currently have, a dachshund wooden cut out for guests to sign as our guest book, a dachshund cake topper, a large cut out of him we are going to have by the photo booth for people to take pictures with, and I was thinking of having a small table next to the favors with homemade dog treats that says “take one for my friends who couldn’t make it to the pawty”. I also found these koozies online that I kind of fell in love with and am thinking of using as our favors that have a drawing of your dog on the back. So my question is should I eliminate some of the dachshund themed things such as the treat table or koozies? As a guest would you be weirded out by all this dog themed things lol? Dogs / our dog is such a big part of us so of course I love all the dog themed things but that’s me, not sure from a guests perspective. What do you think?

Ok I am biased, because I LOVE dogs!!! I can’t imagine my little corgi pup not being with us during are whole wedding. Which is why we are looking for outside venues only.
Back to your question I LOOOOOVE the treat table!! Great idea. And who cares what people think your wedding your day…..by the end of the day your guests are going to think wow their nuts about their pup….which is true lol so who cares 🙂

Presumably your nearest and dearest will totally understand and enjoy all the little touches.. We heavily incorporated our cats. We had a cat wax seal for our invites, cat cake topper, personalised socks and I had a hand painted leather jacket with their faces on that said “all you need is love and cats” lol

I love dogs and understand how you feel about yours but would probably think it’s a bit much all together. Full disclosure, I’m not really a fan of themed weddings other than “marriage.”

I think the koozies sent you over the top. The rest is fine and/or cute. No one wants a koozie of a dog they don’t own or possibly even know.
And my dog was at all of my wedding but the ceremony itself, so I’m no hater, lol

It’s probably fine, I never notice/see cakes and cake toppers so that’s really just for you and your husband. The guest book I would just laugh and I *personally* don’t use photobooths so I’d miss that one too.

I think I would nix the koozies and you’ll be fine! I LOVE the favor idea, how sweet is that!

No koozies. Most have too many anyways… and I’d never use one with another persons pet on it.
And im not really a fan of the topper dog for the cake unless y’all are with the dog.
But i love the dog treat ideas.

Agree with many of the above — nix the koozies, everything else is adorable/great!
We are obsessed with our doggo too, so we featured him on our cake topper and cocktail napkins 🙂

I wouldn’t do the koozies. I throw those away. I have too many and we never use them. The rest I think is fine.

I would nix the koozies, which many guests will not take or just throw away if they do take one.
I would also nix the large cut out of him by the photo booth “for people to take pictures with.” I am a massive dog lover, but that is just weird. Why would I want a picture with a cutout of someone else’s dog?
The other things, especially the dog treats, are great! (although some of my drunk friends would not realize they are for dogs and eat them…)

I wish every dog on the planet belonged to loving owners like you.

Agreed! I like everything except the koozies. My only other piece of advice would be, be REALLY clear that the treats are dog treats. I just went to a wedding that did this and I totally thought the treats were for people and was about to eat one. In retrospect, it was pretty obvious: they had a sign saying “From our pooch to yours” or something like that, and they were all boxed up to go home. But they looked like little cakes (one was carrot and one was peanut butter) and I’d never heard of having dog treats at a wedding, so I didn’t really read the sign closely and still thought they were for humans.
