Now, let’s dive into some of the animals you can incorporate into your wedding day! 

Bring Your Pet!

If you’re a pet owner, you likely want your pal to be a part of your wedding day. Let’s face it, for many, pets are like family! Whether it’s a dog, a cat, an iguana, or a snake (gulp), you can have them on your guest list. From taking photos together to having your pet play a special role in the ceremony, there are plenty of ways to include your pet in the fun. Just make sure to have a person designated to care for your pet, as you will likely be preoccupied! 

If you love your pet dearly but only want them there in spirit, consider having a signature cocktail drink served on their behalf! Or, you can have a customized cake topper designed to look like them and your spouse! Other fun ideas include giant cardboard cut out of their sweet face, printing your pal on the ceremony programs, or even just some adorable photos scattered throughout the venue such as the entrance and the bathrooms!

Dogs: Incorporating Animals Into Your Wedding Day

Butterfly Release 

Want to have an unforgettable ceremony? End your “I do’s” with a butterfly release! Believe it or not, when you work with reputable businesses such as the Butterfly Release Company, the insects are not harmed in any way. “The butterflies are lovingly hand placed into individual envelopes, then placed in a white carnation box.” Upon release, the wedding butterflies will fly to nearby flowers and plants. Often a few of the released butterflies will land on the bride’s bouquet or even land on a few of the guests – which people enjoy. The butterflies will perpetuate naturally and instinctively repopulating their dwindling numbers in our environment.” How fun! 

Ride Into The Sunset 

Want some unbelievable portraits of you and your beloved? Sunset, aka golden hour, is definitely a time on your wedding day that you’ll want to schedule photos with your partner. If you want to take things to the next level, consider having a horse join the fun. You’ll have breathtaking and unique wedding photos as you and your spouse ride off into the sunset! 

Alpacally Ever After

If you want a grand entrance that is over the top, consider booking a pair of alpacas for your event! Our dear friends at Texas Party Animals, treat their alpacas with so much love and care. Your guests will be shocked at the surprise and will love taking photos with them! Alpacas can be dressed to impress and match any theme. They are such cute and unique additions to any celebration!

Parade The Heard 

After the ceremony, consider having a parade around your venue! Have a mariachi band lead the way, give your guests props, and dance throughout the grounds of the venue! Include animals such as donkeys, horses, goats, or alpacas in on the fun. This is a great way to get everyone excited for the party to start, and the photos will be an incredible keepsake!
