It pulls on the heartstrings of every pet owner, when the time comes to wave goodbye to your little fur baby, and go on vacation without them. No matter how nice their doggy retreat is, or […]

Even though you weren’t able to sleep much through the excitement, you feel refreshed and ready. You lay on your side to see your second most prized companion (besides your almost-spouse) is […]
You are finally married and now it’s time for your long-awaited honeymoon. As you’re basking in the joys of planning your honeymoon, you may be asking yourself “What about our fur-baby?”. If you are like many of the couples that have included their pups in their picture-pawfect wedding, you may want to include your dog […]
It’s ‘National Cat Day, and what better way to celebrate these beautiful felines than with several different ideas of how to include your cat or cats in your wedding. Most cats, unlike most dogs, are a little harder to persuade to pose for pictures, but that does not mean they aren’t just as important. First, make sure your significant other is on board with any one of these ideas. In most cases, they love your cat as much as you do, but just in case-better to ask.
Let’s start with the basics.
Every couple first needs to make sure their guests save the big day and put it on their schedule—what better way to do that than including your four-legged companions in those save-the-date cards?
There are many creative ways you can include your feline. For example, you can do the kitty save the dates with photos, cartoons, pictures, or drawings.
These are some great companies that can help you with that:
Adding them to the invitations, too, can be just as adorable!
You can have your friendly feline walk down the aisle, have someone carry them or even bring them down the aisle with a stroller. Of course, decorating a stroller with cute flowers and a fun sign can always add that special touch.
Warning including your cat as the ring bearer is not for the faint of heart. But of course, that depends on your cat. Many couples will have their dog walk down the aisle, but who says cats can’t do the same? Some cats are very friendly and love attention. We always suggest using a leash and a cat harness. You never know how they will react. Dogs can run, but cats…well, they can fly (or sort of).
Now some cats may not be made to strut their fluffy tail in front of so many. As much as you want them to, their personalities just don’t fit that role. Always consider the pet’s temperament and in what environment their personality would shine more. Ultimately, we want to avoid surprises and for everyone to have a good time. Your best fur-pal may do best in photos right beside you.
Many couples have their pictures taken before the wedding. Either for the getting ready part or the first look pictures. Why not incorporate them, then? Cats that tend to be on the shy side may do better being photographed indoors and with as few people around them as possible. Don’t know how to make this happen? Hire a wedding pet care company, like Furever Us, and let them do all the planning and the work. All you need to do is show up.
Cats as Cake Toppers
Cake toppers: You can have your cat front and center in many cute ways.
Cake toppers come in all shapes and sizes. If you want them to look as authentic as possible, consider the price, weight, and material.
Your baker could make a care topper out of fondant. Best if you as ahead of time if this is even possible and the pricing. Our best advice: check out some of their samples and pricing. So you are not in for a surprise on your wedding day.
Cake toppers can also be made out of acrylic. We would be happy to make one for you.
Another great way to find your unique cake topper is in toy stores or specialty stores like Michaels. They can also be seen as collectibles on amazon, for example. Lastly, don’t forget that there are stores like dogloverstore.com that produce resin figurines in the shapes of dogs and cats. Although they are ornaments, you can use them as decor for your cake; just remove the holiday scarves.
Lastly, but not the most cost-effective, is 3-D printing. Many companies will make figurines of you and your family with a 3-D printer. They are not cheap, but they will probably become one of your keepsakes. So why not splurge a little? Wecaketoppers.com has some cute ideas. The cake might not last long, but these figurines definitely will.
