How to involve pets in your wedding celebrations?
First of all, it’s a great idea, and you don’t stand a chance to argue! We are even not worried about how the pandit would react about this. Quite possibly (definitely), he hasn’t seen movies like 101 Dalmations, which teach us how your fur baby could be the emotional pillar for your wedding day! If you watched that movie attentively, we hope you remember how our mischievous doggie Pongo’s love for Perdita paved the way for their masters to meet and eventually fall in love. Ok, we seriously want to hug that guy who came up with, ‘Whoever says diamonds are a girl’s best friend, never really owned a pet’. There is nothing more adorable than watching your dog accompany you down the aisle on your wedding day—that too in a tux with flowers!
If you are eager to bring your pet to your wedding venue, here are a few great ways to make their presence felt.
Involve your pets in the proposal
This is one of the cutest proposals ever! Seriously, who could say no to that cute, adorable thing? Create a sign board saying ‘will you marry me’ and place it around your pet’s neck. You can also design a beautiful collar with the same message. It is a great way to involve your pet in one of the important moments of your life.
Make them a part of the engagement ceremony
Make your future spouse go ‘aww’ by tying the ring to your pet’s collar and making him/her a part of your engagement ceremony. They could be an innate part of your engagement celebrations, and you could also include them in your wedding photos and make it a memorable affair.
Make your furry buddy ‘save the date’
Save the date is a concept that we’ve picked up from the west, but it’s become quite popular in India too. So, whenever you want to convey the wedding dates to your family and friends put your pet in the forefront for the announcement. Get pictures clicked with your pet with a sign that reads ‘save the date’. Posting these pictures on social networking sites will surely grab eyeballs and invite a great response.
Introduce them in your pre-wedding shoot

Since a lot of couples opt for a pre-wedding shoot these days, you can add some twist by involving your pets in it. Instead of opting for some funky props, you can bring your little buddy to add that fun element to your pre-wedding photos.
Design a tux for your pet
For your little dog, it’s their master’s wedding day! Make your beloved pooch look adorable on your wedding day and let the compliments just flow in. There are a lot of vendors who specialize in designing tuxedos for pets on such occasions. These stores customize designs according to the type of pet and requirements.
Make them a part of your wedding photos
How about making your pet a part of your wedding photographs? That way, they will be sealed in your wedding day memories. Celebs like Soha Ali Khan and Esha Deol have clicked some very adorable pictures with their precious ones on their wedding day. Just to make sure your wedding album is nothing less than the best, make sure you and your little buddy pose for a couple of candid pictures.
Walk down the aisle with them
For all those brides out there, if you have pets and want to make them a part of your most important day, then this is it! While you walk down the aisle, let your best friend accompany you. Remember how Priscilla Zuckerberg walked down the aisle with Beast Zuckerberg, the couple’s dog?
Let them escort the flower girl
Having your pets accompany the flower girl at your wedding just takes the ‘cuteness’ quotient up a notch. It would be a delightful sight to see a small girl walk around, dropping flower petals with a cute puppy in tow.

While you are busy having fun, ask your BFFs to be in charge of your animal. You don’t want your pets to mess with your cake or create havoc at the venue with their curiosity. So, making them a part of your wedding day with proper planning is a way of returning the affection they’ve showered upon you.
