Love animals? Having your dog serve as ring bearer isn’t the only way to include your pet or other animals in your wedding. Incorporate a favorite animal motif on your wedding stationery, like the save-the-dates or the actual invitation. You could also feature a pair of critters—foxes, squirrels, deer, birds—as your wedding-cake toppers, or pass out packages of animal crackers as a fun, edible wedding favor. If you’re tying the knot at an animal-centric venue like a zoo or farm, be sure to pose with some animals for a memorable photo op. And if you’ve booked a photo booth, a supply of animal party masks for some photo booth fun is an absolute necessity!

Instead of traditional numerals, prints of hand-painted birds were displayed on reception tables and served as identifiers for the corresponding escort cards given to each guest. The illustrations (done by the bride’s aunt) were of species often seen on Martha’s Vineyard, where the wedding was held. The original paintings were framed and hung in the newlyweds’ home.
