How to Purrfectly Incorporate Your Cats In Your Wedding

It’s ‘National Cat Day’ and what better way to celebrate these beautiful felines with a number of different ideas of how to include them 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 of all, make sure your significant other is onboard with any of these ideas. In most cases they love your cat as much as you do, but just in case-better to ask. This is your special day. So, do what you want. If you want to incorporate your wedding cat in any way, do so and you won’t regret it. These are moments you will cherish your whole life. There are tons of different ways you can add that ‘cat touch’ some are more direct and require some effort while others not as much.

Let's starts with the basics

The first thing every couple needs is to make sure their guests ‘save the big day’. What better way to do that, than including your four legged companion.

There are so many photo ideas where they can be included. You can do the kitty save the dates with photos, cartoons, pictures and or drawings.

These are some cool companies that can help you with that:

Adding them in the invitations too can be adorable!

Ring Bearer

This 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 actually very friendly and love attention. We always suggest using a leash and a cat harness. You just never know how they will react. Dogs can run, but cats…well they can fly (or sort of).

You can have your friendly cation walk down the aisle, have someone carry them or even bring them down the aisle with a stroller. Decorating a stroller with some cute flowers and a nice sign can always add that special touch.

Photographs

Now some cats may not be made to strut their fluffly tail in front of so many. As much as you want them to, their personalities just don’t match that role. Always consider the pet’s personaility and what they would be comfortable with. In the end, we want to avoid any suprises and everyone have a good time. Your best furpal may do best in photos right beside you.

Many couples have their pictues taken before the wedding. Either for the getting ready part or the first look pictures. Why not incorporate them then? Cats that are more shy are best to be 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: there are many cute ways you can have your cat front and center. Cake toppers come in all shapes and sizes. If you want to have them looking as authentic as possible, think about the price, weight and material.
  • Cat Cake toppers can be made out of fondant. Make sure you ask if your baker can make figures out of cake and the price for those. Some good advice is seeing samples, this way you know what you are getting yourself into.
  • Cake toppers can also be made out of acrylic. Etsy has some vendors that can personalize it with particular breed dog. Check these out for more ideas: Etsy Cat Cake Toppers.
  • Another great way you can find your special cake topper is looking in toys stores or specialty stores like Michaels. They can also be found 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 they can easily be used as decor for your cake, just remove the scarves.
  • Lastly, but not the most cost effective is 3-D printing. There are many companies that will make figurines of you and your family with a 3-D printer. They are not cheap, but they will probably end up as 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.

Cat Inspired Wedding Ideas

If you are one of those super passionate about kitties. Then you might want to consider surprising your guests with some of these. Sure, some might not get it, but those that do will have a great laugh. Table names, guestbook and signs are a great way to add that purrfect accent to your wedding. It can remind you that your Garfield is always there with you and it lets others know, that your feline is impawtant.

Bouquets

Who needs flowers when you can have kittens. Let us not forget that cats are just as photogenic as dogs. How about instead of a bouquet, some kitties!

What would a wedding day be without the best cat? You have to admit they look quite dashing with their ties.
