While you may not be able to have your pet attend the wedding itself, there’s still some lovely ways you can include them! We love that Carol and Eric had a pic of their gorgeous doggie on the top table – such a sweet way to make them a part of your celebrations.

6. Incorporate them in to your cake topper

Another lovely way to show they’re an important part of your life is by including them in a customised cake topper! It’s a beautiful keepsake you can pop on a shelf at home afterwards too.

7. Donate to the ISPCA in honour of your furry friend

If you’re struggling to come up with a favour idea, animal lovers might like to support Ireland’s leading animal welfare charity, the ISPCA who work to prevent cruelty to animals, promote animal welfare and proactively relieve animal suffering. You get to choose your own pics too if you like so you can have a snap of your own precious pet on table cards!
