I think it would be AWESOME. As a guest I’d love it, but I’m a huge animal fan and I love the zoo. And it would be so memorable.

I think it all depends on the animal and how the bride and groom feel about it. Could be a little distracting from the wedding activities.

Although, if it were my wedding and you brought out elephants I would probably die of excitement. All depends on the couple.

I think it depends on what animal. A nice, docile animal, like a giraffe, would be pretty cool, or anything that you see in the kiddie petting zoo, such as a sheep. I probably wouldn’t include a bird of prey or anything that can be unpredictable and poop on people. A lot of zoos I’ve been to also have peacocks walking around the food area, so that might be fun, assuming none of your guests are scared of birds.

That being said, Darling Husband and I are huge animal lovers so that’s probably coloring my opinion.

I think if you’re going to have a reception at a zoo, a live animal encouter is a MUST 😉

I think this is great, in theory.

Does the zoo have a petting zoo? How far from the shelter is it? It would be super cute to having a “pet-tail hour” [cocktail hour, but you know, in a petting zoo!]. I don’t think I’d bring any animals to the actual reception though…. they can get smelly, and they poop.. alot! If everyone is all dolled up nobody wants to smell or see poop in the same area they’ll be eating.

As a person who doesn’t even like housepets because of their hair and slobber, there’s no way I would get near an animal when I was all dressed up for a wedding.  I’m probably in the minority though.

@Sheepshead:  I think it’s one thing to subject an unhappy monkey to being passed around to kids with sticky fingers, but at the zoo, there are other animals that are happy to be in the spotlight for a brief period of time. A live animal encounter doesn’t necessarily have to include handling said animal. It could just be a quick demonstration, similar to the ones they already put on during the day. For example, I highly doubt the giraffes that line up for hand-fed treats from the zoo attendees are feeling upset and angry about the “encounter”.

@Nona99:  LOL (for serious)

 

@dittobelle:  I agree with others that it depends on the animal.

@Sheepshead:  What’s wrong with a zoo?
