The Smallest and Definitely Dumbest Family Member

Here's a fact I haven't shared yet: Mr. Octopus and I are dog owners. And, if I can be totally objective for a minute, the dog we own is the sweetest, cuddliest, funniest, most precious, most perfect dog that exists in the universe.

Hive, meet Daffodil:

Making herself at home on the throw pillows, no big deal.

Feeling preeeeetty hesitant about my strapping her into the Snuggie purchased for her by her loving grandmother, Mom Octopus.

She is a French bulldog, and Mr. O and I basically think she's the most awesome living creature on Earth. I would love to figure out some way to include her in our wedding! Hopefully, it would be something fairly subtle, because I don't want to seem like a completely cuckoo bananas dog lady on my wedding day, but it would be nice to have some kind of reference to our little friend.

Mr. Octopus really, really, really wants her to act as the flower girl. While she would look extremely adorable trotting up the aisle in a get-up like this:


And while she has a proven ability to rock a killer costume:

Bridesmaid/Cousin Katie, a fellow Boston resident, gifted Daffodil this sweet outfit when we decided to move there.

Heinz Chapel does not allow dogs. Boooo.

I've also seen people featuring their pets via personalized table numbers. This is a really fun idea, and while I haven't totally ruled it out, I also have a strong suspicion that those kinds of cute but not-strictly-necessary projects may be at risk of falling by the wayside as the wedding gets closer.

So what is everyone else doing? Do you have ideas to share on cute-and-low-effort ways to feature your pets in your wedding?

  1. Can I bring Daf as my date. I think we'd look great together?
