I’m so sorry about our kitty! I’m sure no one would know what’s in the box unless you tell them. Other than that I think a picture would be a good way to let everyone know that you miss your kitty.
How about a pic in a bouquet charm?

I have already decided and made it known to everyone that when dear Black Lab Roxy goes, she will be stuffed and sit in my living room. Yes, like on Scrubs. (She’s 11 and slowing down) I’d put her in the wedding but she is crazy and my family isn’t dog friendly.
My grandmother died two months ago, and I sent a pillow (that goes in the casket) adorned with roses. My Mom calls me after the funeral and informs me she “saved it so you can use it as your wedding”
To each his own.

Sorry but that’s creepy… What about a photo of the cat blown up onto a canvas for the reception. It would be respectful.

So sorry to hear about your beloved kitty.
With regards to your wedding, I understand your desire to keep him a part of it, but I think the ashes box may be too much… he’s at least still there in your heart.
Something that may not evoke discomfort from guests could be to include a photo or photo collage of him somewhere… perhaps by the dessert table and have a sign that reads “This dessert table is dedicated to our dearly departed, sweet Sly.”… or something?

That is pretty creepy. A more discreet way for your to have your kitty with you would be to get one of these pendants and either wear it or put it on your bouquet. http://www.pawsnheaven.com/urns_caskets/
They contain a tiny portion of your pet’s cremains and look really nice and not like a box of your cat’s cremains at your wedding. I don’t know the direct supplier to these guys–I’ve just worked with them for years on a professional basis. I’m sure if you call and ask they can help you find out where you could get that done in your area.
Alternatively, you could have a photo of him on your sign in table next to some flowers or carry a small photo of him on your bouquet.
