Wedding Day Flowers for Your Pet

We are proud to announce an addition to our team; Tank, our new little guard dog here at the studio! Of course, we had to make him his own floral collar on picture day. In honor of Sir Tank, we decided to showcase a few ideas for wedding flowers for your pet.

Incorporating your special pet in your wedding is not a new idea. With more and more couples living together before marriage, it's common to have gotten a pet during that time that you want to be a part of your special day.  We sat down and collected a few tips for you to keep in mind while planning on your flowers.

Most importantly, you want to keep it simple. Pets can sometimes be distracted with something new, and especially if they are wearing it. The best way to prevent this is to keep your design simple and comfortable. Our favorite designs are floral collars or special boutonnieres that clip onto the existing collar. This way it's easy to take off and will keep Fido comfortable.

Something that goes along with keeping it simple is the choice of flower you use. You want to be sure to use a flower that is durable and can withstand the possible beating it may get by Fido's paw.  Don't forget that some plants and flowers can be harmful to your pet if eaten.

We have included some of our past favorite designs, and a couple of our design inspirations for future work. We even included a picture of topiary's made to look like the couple's favorite pets!
