How to Purrfectly Incorporate Your Cats In Your Wedding
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!
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.
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
- 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.
