Hi, I know it may sound weird to some but my dog recently passed away and she was so important to me. I don't know why but I don't think my big day will feel the same without her there :-(, do any of you have any advice in how to incorporate her somehow so she is there with me? Thank you in advance. :'(
Sorry to hear your sad news Maybe if you still have the dog tag put it in your flowers like some people do with lockets xx
so sorry to hear about your dog my cousins husband had a bracelet made from her dogs collar after she had passed away. the name tag was on a blue ribbon so was incorporated as something borrowed (name tag) something blue (the ribbon) something new (the bracelet) - my cousin loved it x
Have your favorite photo strategically placed somewhere, maybe?
We lost our dog, despite booking a whole dog friendly wedding. We used her food bowls filled with flowers as part of the ceremony, had a paw print on the handfasting cord, my hubby wore her dogtag as part of his button hole
Have a charm photo on your bouquet. My nan died when I was little and my grandad has sadly recently had a stroke so cannot come to our wedding so this is what I'm having, that way they'll be with me. It's not weird at all, sorry for your loss x
A picture of it attached to you're bouquet dog colour around you're leg instead of a garter your rings linked into collor
Agree with dog tag on flowers. My dad still had our dogs name tag on his keys
How long have you got till your wedding. My dog passed away and for my birthday my mum has a charm with his ashes in. Some people have said it's odd but I'm going to love it and cherish it. It does take 6-8 weeks though xx
I am so so sorry for your loss. I completely understand where you are coming from, we had our boy at our wedding. Maybe a little photo charm on your bouquet? Light a candle specially for them. Sx
My auntie had little icing versions of her cats alongside her cake, their names embroidered on to her garter and pictures of them in a beautiful frame on the top table xx
Why not get a necklace with her picture on or something so she's with you or something In your flowers
Have the same feeling about my cat who died over two years ago. We planted a silver lining liquorice shrub over his grave, and we'll be using stems from it in my bouquet and the boutinnieres. I'm also having a memorial pendant with a leaf from the plant and some of his fur made which I'll wear then and everyday. Know exactly how you feel, I have dreams where he walks down the aisle in front of me :'(
You can get gems made from the ashes. You could get a ring or necklace made and then your dog will always be with you.
Could you perhaps get her ashes made into a necklace? That's what I did with my cat... I chose blue to be my 'something blue', too.
My dogs are still with me, but won't be at the actual wedding with us. I'm having clay versions of their faces made, which will be hung on my bouquet. Having them done by Victoria Rodgers Customised Characters, she has already made me two larger hanging decs of them, so I know they'll be fab! x
I would like my dog to be a part of my ceremony but I don't know what to do either
I totally understand this; my dog is still with us but i felt very guilty her not being at my wedding! She is part of the family and I missed her so much. We've just got back from honeymoon and I'm wide awake counting the hours till I can go and collect my baby in the morning 💓💓💓
Put her tag on your bouquet
You could wrap her collar around your bouquet, or attach her name tag to a bracelet/necklace.
Sorry for your loss; my dogs mean the world to me and want them at my wedding, even if the venue is perfect, we won't go there if they don't allow dogs!
I have a silver necklace with my cats pawprints on that I got for my 21st and haven't taken it off! ( just turned 24) I also have them on charm beads on my bracelet. The company is hand on heart and I thoroughly recommend them! I will probably wear my necklace on my wedding day :) - we recently lost them both so will be my way of having them with me x
'Ashes to glasses' can turn a spoonful of the ashes of your beloved late pooch into multiple wearable pieces so you can incorporate them into your wedding.
if it were and my cat Penelope had passed, I would have a fur clipping taken for a locket and her ashes turned into a pandora charm. I would also have a small photograph of her framed as we are having a table at the ceremony with photographs of all deceased love ones who can't be there but would be otherwise.
Sorry for your loss xxx
Do you have ashes left at all, my mum had some of my dads made into a small diamond which I will be carrying close to me at my wedding x
Her dog tag in you bouquet? Xx
Why not put a different photo of your dog on each table at the reception
A nice photo of her on a chair x
There's a place called ashes to glasses, they do necklaces, rings and earrings that are made using a loved ones ashes. It's a lovely way of keeping them close. I hope you find something xx
Could do something like this on your flowers x
I lost my little sister earlier this year and I got her Ashes put into my wedding ring set in blue resin so it was my something blue too. I got married on Friday
Maybe something like this on a necklace? They put your own photo in it. https://www.soufeel.co.uk/personalized-photo-charm-with-paw-charm-925-sterling-silver.html?gclid=CjwKCAjw5uTMBRAYEiwA5HxQNkrM45KhvD65C0laSb9YfXegTsrrcRBfRO8LlWgmA1ThklwSZGFGrBoCn7UQAvD_BwE
Have a small table reserved with a bowl of doggy treats and collar. && put a note saying for all those that can't be here today xx
I am in exactly the same position. We had intended for my dog to be the ring bearer but sadly we had to have her pts a week ago. We are having a cushion made with a picture of her on it so she can still bear the rings and I have a small clipping of her fur that I'm having put in a soft pouch and stitched into my wedding dress near my heart. I feel your pain.xxx
You can have bouquet charms. Get one made with a photo in and then she can walk you down the aisle. 😍 xx
Get a little model made of her for the top of your wedding cake.
Ashes into Glass would be a lovely way of taking her with you xx
Ashes in to glass, a lovely company that put a loved ones ashes in to a beautiful piece of jewellery, something you can wear proudly on your big day xxx
Have her dog tag woven into your bouquet, so you can walk her down the Alter
There is a company that makes jewellery containing ashes from people/pets that have died and been cremated. Maybe look into this? Ashes into glass is the name of it xx
If you have the dogs ashes went not look at the page 'ashes onto glass' they could make you a wedding necklace or something using His actually ashes. Then he'll definitely be with it through your big day... You can even pick the colour, so you could get blue, for your something blue item.
You can get little picture charms to go around your bouquet x
Maybe a photo of her on a table with some flowers her dog collar if you have it just place on the picture frame nicely so you can remember her and she can be watching over you 😊 Sorry for your loss though
Put a picture of her on your bouquet. I did this with my dads picture x
I had a photo of my dad on my flowers as he passed away a few yrs back you could do something like this
I had a paw print iced on my wedding cake x
Ashes to glasses xxxx
Ashes to glass - get a ring or necklace made with your pups ashes, means your fur baby will be with you always x

A model on the cake topper. Her picture in a memorial locket on your bouquet
My beloved Stella Labrador died 4 months before our wedding and she definitely would have been there if she had still been with us. So we had her incorporated into our wedding cake topper along with out 2 cats and Jack Russell. It was lovely to be able to include her x
