Trend Alert! 9 Animal Motif Ideas

Having your dog serve as the ring bearer isn’t the only way to include your pet, or other animals in your wedding day. Whimsical woodland weddings are one of the biggest wedding trends of the year, which means anything from bunnies to foxes. And you don’t have to get married in the forest to find a reason to include animals in your own way. From horse topiary centerpieces (for the preppy, equestrian-loving couple), to regal dog-shaped ice sculptures and even animal crackers for a carnival-inspired theme — take a look!
