Until Death Do Us Bark!

Invitations and Save the Dates are an excellent way to incorporate your love of animals into your wedding. Whether you want a silhouette of the entire wedding party, canines included, or an artful montage of your life and your pets - there are classy and unique ways to make it work.

I love the idea of the silhouette here. You could take this a step further and have place card holders include silhouettes of all of your pets! I like when people carry a theme throughout the wedding, so this could easily be done on numerous levels.

There are all sorts of great things on Etsy, like this floral Golden Retriever made by Pop Dog Press. To carry the theme of the silhouette you could include something like this at the wedding. This would look very cute on place card holders, and you could name the tables after childhood pets of you and your spouse. I was at a wedding where many of the tables were named after horses the bride owned growing up, and it really gave the wedding a very special touch!

A more detailed wedding invitation including dogs is this one. There are elements to this I really enjoy, and elements I am not as much of a fan of. I do love the details though, the glitter I could do with out. The facial details on the dogs are simply amazing, however! This would be great for a small garden wedding or a wedding at your house! If I used this, I would pair it with place card holders cut out in the shapes of leaves, or use large purple flowers in my center pieces.

  1. Very nice! Mom has always been fond of Etsy - buying and selling things there are two of her favorite things to do!
