A Fluffy Aisle-Runner

Previously, I tossed around some ideas for including our doggies in the wedding.  And the whole time, I was searching for the source of the picture below.  I still haven’t found it, but the pic is too heart-meltingly cute to keep to myself any longer!

Go, puppy, go!

Is it the determination in his eyes or the floppiness of his ears that makes this picture?

The Dog Days, Continued S’more

This idea is so perfect for Adam and his dog:

Adam’s pup has been by his side for the past 12 years.  12 years!!  They have pictures from way back when they were just a wide-eyed kid and crazy-hyper puppy.  In the picture above, I love how we can see the relationship through the doggie’s eyes and the calm of being with an old friend on a life-changing day.  There is a Serbian tradition taking place at Adam’s house on the morning of our wedding day, so we could easily get some pictures of the inseparable duo.  And as for me and my pup?  I would love to take my spritely Luxi out on the dance floor, like this next couple!

The Dog Days, Continued

Adam and I have some serious love for our pets—his shih-tzu and my beagle-spaniel mix.  Wouldn’t a display of these cupcakes be a sweet way to include them in our wedding?  I think they already look like Adam’s puppy!

Pupcakes!

 I’ve seen some adorable wedding clothes for dogs, but I’ve never seen a puppy work it like the one below:

The Dog Days of Summer

Adam and I want to include our entire families in our wedding.  However, we each have a little sibling who cannot attend!  Mine is named Luxi, but she also responds to Luxe, Bebe, and Bebe Seester. 🙂

Sisters: Luxi luxe and me with our arms around each other.  She brought me a dolphin toy and comforted me after a stressful night.

About four years ago, my parents came home one night to find a teeny tiny puppy in their house—compliments of my brother.  My dad could hold her in the palm of his hand!  Like our first and only other dog, she was rescued and had nowhere else to go.  She’s a beagle/spaniel mix, which (I would passionately state) is the most beautiful mix ever!

Like all cute creatures, Luxi has a very unique personality.  She’s a happy dog, and she finds joy in running, playing ball, and cuddling!  Adam says that she’s also the most sensitive and emotional dog he’s met.  For example, if my mom goes out of town, Luxi refuses to eat,  play, or walk until she returns.  She’ll sigh and make sad eyes at us.  If the hunger strike is too long to bear, Luxe will wait till everyone else goes to bed, and then secretly (so she thinks) eat her food.  When our mom returns, Luxi always gives her the most ecstatic greeting, which includes bringing Mom every toy she can find, running excited circles around the house, and nuzzling into her the rest of the evening.

Luxi hears a suspicious noise outside.

Adam also has a doggie sibling—an adorable shih-tzu who is 12 years old!  We plan to include them in our wedding, but we haven’t figured out how yet.  We’ve thought of displaying their framed photos on a table, using their pictures on our table number cards, and sneaking them into the ceremony or reception hall!  How have you seen beloved pets incorporated into weddings?
