In fact, the only other person who might rival the place it holds in your heart is your fiancé. To that end, it would only be right to want to share one of the most important days of your life with your furry buddy. Yes, sometimes involving pets in wedding plans can be hokey or problematic, but there are plenty of ways to avoid issues and create some seriously adorable moments.
Here are some super-cute and creative ways to incorporate your fluffy friends into your impending nuptials. And, yes, I intend to steal at least two of these for my own wedding.

Just a little gesture that says, "We ruff you guys."
If you have a bird that won't suddenly fly away, it would create a lovely picture to have it up there on a perch while you say your vows. Just make sure you aren't standing directly beneath said bird. Bird poop on the head may be good luck in Italy, but it would definitely put a damper on your wedding day.
