Find yourself asking what the newest bridal world trend making headlines everywhere is? We have the answer and it’s full of all kinds of adorableness. Fur babies in weddings. Paw-lease, we’re not talking about the usual dog as a ring bearer down the aisle gig. It involves replacing bouquets with adorable – and perfectly adoptable – animals. This latest craze has certainly captured American bride’s hearts and ours (when done right). Working with rescue organization, Cat Matchers, industry professionals Rebecca Chesney Photo & Film and Texas Pearls & Co. put the limelight on this purr-fectly growing “mewment.” Portraying the trend through a whimsical and playful styled shoot packed with plenty of cat-itude comes this beautiful contrast between dark and light at the White Sparrow Barn. Dark, rich colors for the fall season set against a crisp, white background with Unique Creations by Amalia floral creations in hues of dark purples, greens, blues and black show just how to incorporate these ideas into a wedding day.
Newest Bridal World Trend
Let’s face it, brides and grooms have an undeniable love for their fur babies – they’re part of their growing family. From dogs and cats to horses and lamas, we have seen how four legged friends have made guest appearances at weddings. But taking this one step further, animal lovers are creating ways to bring their passion to the most special day of their lives through adoption. We are true animal rights advocates at Strictly Weddings. So, if you are thinking of participating in the newest bridal world trend, we provide a few words of precaution. While these moments certainly create some priceless pictures, copycat brides may simply see this as an aesthetic that creates an “adorable prop” opportunity with little consideration to the animals’ welfare. Incorporating the adoption awareness prior to the wedding and not giving animals as wedding favors – yes, we have seen this too – is paramount. If you are passionate about animals, there are plenty of ways to incorporate them into your wedding. Links on your wedding website, asking for shelter donations in lieu of gifts, including your rescue animals in your ceremony or educational animal-themed favors are a few suggestions. If you are thinking about using your wedding to help perfectly adoptable animals find their furr-ever home, work with a licensed shelter or non-profit to coordinate the process – take a moment and do your research too – just as you would thoroughly hire your wedding planner.
