If I knew what was in the box, yeah, I’d find it super creepy and weird…Sorry!  But, if I didn’t know what it was it’d just look like a pretty box instead of a pillow Smile

I’m a firm believer in doing whatever YOU want that will make YOU happy since it’s YOUR wedding, but I do find it a little weird.

ETA:  I’m sorry about your kitty.

Sorry.. it is really hard to lose a pet 🙁 

To answer your question– I would find it a bit weird though, and also kind of sad. I think maybe you should put a picture of him on a charm on your bouquet or on a charm bracelet maybe?

I would find it really weird. I mean I know people love their pets but I think this is taking it too far. No one would do this with a lost parent, friend, etc.

I find this really disturbing.  Definitely creepy and unecessary at a wedding.

Sorry to hear about your kitty… 🙁 My furbabies mean the world to me so I can imagine you must be crushed

Is there a different way you could incorporate him? A photo in a locket on your bouquet? Pictures at your reception?

i think most people would find it a bit odd, unless you didnt tell them what was in the box. Can you have a picture of your cat there rather than the actual ashes.. I would think you would want to keep the ashes safe at home

it’s a bit weird to me.  a wedding isn’t really the time to have something that would also be at a funeral.

I am very, very sorry about the loss of your beloved Sly. I am sure this is a very difficult time for you.

I wouldn’t bring his remains to the wedding. Any number of things could happen, that might not be good. The box of his remains should have a place of honor in your home, and leave it at that.

I had a girlfriend who, after loosing her beloved kitty, wore his collar as a bracelet, and it made her feel better. Maybe you could do something like that? Or use the collar around the stem of your flowers or maybe incorporate one of your cat’s toys into your bouquet? I think at least this way you would be honoring your beloved pet and he would be there, in spirit, for your ceremony.

I’m so sorry to hear about Sly 🙁 he looks like a very happy kitty

I would be worried about something happening to the remains but I think doing something like @SandyThePoet: mentioned would be good, if he has a bell on his collar maybe you could have this attached to somewhere and when you hear it tinkle you’ll know he’s with you
