Furry Friends & Forever Vows

blog, March 15, 2024

Your wedding day is a celebration of love, not just between two people but extending to the whole family, including your beloved pets. At Flora, we understand that pets hold a special place in your heart, which is why we’re all about including them in your celebrations in any safe and joyful way possible. Here’s how to make your big day unforgettable by incorporating your furry, feathered, or scaled friends.


1. Role with Responsibility: Ring Bearer or Flower Pet

Imagine your pet, adorned in a dainty bow tie or floral garland, trotting down the aisle with the rings or gently scattering petals. This not only adds a layer of cuteness to your ceremony but also allows your pet to participate in a meaningful way. Ensure they’re comfortable with the crowd and practice the walk during rehearsal to make the moment smooth and enjoyable.

2. The Honor of a Lifetime: Pet of Honor

Elevate your pet’s status by making them your Pet of Honor. This role can vary from sitting proudly by your side as you exchange vows to leading the procession. It’s a beautiful way to symbolize their importance in your life, ensuring they’re right there in the moments that matter most.


3. Warm Welcomes: Furry Greeters

For pets who love socializing, consider having them welcome guests as they arrive. This unique touch not only personalizes your entrance but also delights your guests, setting a warm, loving tone for the festivities.


4. Unforgettable Moments: Photographic Companion

Incorporating your pet into your wedding photos is a must. Whether it’s posing for the formal shots or capturing those spontaneous cuddles, these photos will be cherished for a lifetime. Work with your photographer to plan pet-friendly shots that highlight your bond.


5. Symbolic Presence: Special Mention and Themed Decor

For pets who might find the event overwhelming or for couples who want to honor a pet that cannot be present, including them in your vows or using pet-themed decor is a heartfelt alternative. This can range from table names inspired by your pet’s name to cake toppers or illustrations that capture their spirit, ensuring they’re part of your day in spirit.


Planning with Pet Love in Mind

Including your pet in your wedding requires thoughtful planning. Start by considering your pet’s comfort and how they handle social situations. Discuss your ideas with your coordinator, ensuring Flora’s pet-friendly space can accommodate all of your fun plans! Also, consider assigning a trusted friend or hiring a professional pet handler to look after your pet, ensuring they’re happy and comfortable throughout the day.
