The cuteness, the warmness, the fuzziness. We love our little four legged pals. They love us unconditionally, live to please us, comfort us in times of sadness and make us laugh when we’re down. Well, unless you have a cat. Then you’re there to do those things for them, when they allow you to do so.
So it’s your special day and of course you want all of your family there to celebrate. I mean, if Uncle Jack’s third wife’s second cousin once removed is invited then by all means the fur-kids should be there! That’s logic people.
There is no question in your mind that the fur-kids are going to have a role in your wedding. Oh the costumes, the happiness, the squeals of delight, the uniqueness. All fun and games. Or is it?
Ok, let’s move past the idea of Gizmo turning into Cujo and assume the venue will allow you to have the fur-kid there. Where will you put them before the ceremony? Does he usually stay in a crate or roam free? Is there a quiet area that he can hang out without every strange person on the planet stopping by to say hello to him, thus causing nervousness? If your answer is a miraculous yes to these questions then that’s settled and let’s move on.
Ceremony is over. Now what do you do with them? You basically need to ask yourself the same questions as you did for before the ceremony. Where are they going to hang out during big people time? Oh! I have an idea! Let Fido run from table to table to beg for scraps! That’ll keep your guests entertained! Classy (not).
There is no doubt that all pets hold a special place in our hearts. However, as much as we always want them with us, there are just some times and places that aren’t appropriate. Before you decide to say your I Do’s with the fur-kids around, ask yourself this one main question:
Is it what’s really best for them?
