The recent trend of the bride and groom starring their very own pet on their wedding day has definitely not gone unnoticed. However, this trend has been taken to the next level by our fellow cat-lovers. Replacing the usual doggie ring bearer, many couples have featured a new guest in their special day. Check out the top 6 reasons why you should include your furry feline in your wedding!

1. Cats make for great photos. Whether photos are being taken while the bride is getting ready, or at the reception with friends and family, these furry creatures add personality and good vibes to any photo.


2. Cats have a way of calming nerves. Everyone knows planning a wedding is stressful. After months and even years of planning, it’s the brides mission to make sure everything runs smoothly on the big day. Therefore, its important for the bride to have just a few minutes to relax with her favorite kitty before walking down the aisle.


3. Cats are “purrrfect” for entertaining the guests. You may have a bit of down time after the ceremony and before the reception where your guests are in need of something to keep them busy. These little guys are sure to get some attention from your friends and family!


4. They can replace the typical “garter throw”. Tired of seeing brides throw a bouquet of flowers or their garter for her guests to catch? Your cat is the perfect replacement for this fun tradition!


P.S.- No cats were harmed in the making of this photo.

5. They won’t be able to contain their excitement for you. Your cat will be thrilled you included them in your wedding, and they won’t know how to thank you enough.


6. Cats just want to be a part of their human’s big day! They have always been by your side no matter what. Why not keep the tradition going?


 Your wedding day is one of the best days of your life, and sharing it with your favorite feline friend is the perfect way to liven the party. We’re not “kitten” around!
