2022 Pet Weddings Decor Ideas
Getting married wasn’t easy during the pandemic. With so many restrictions in place, many brides and grooms were forced to delay or cancel their nuptials.
That doesn’t mean there weren’t any weddings. Pet weddings became popular instead! Now that everyone has seen how fun a pet wedding can be, more and more couples are dressing up their dogs and cats and sending them to the altar.
Pet weddings don’t have to be expensive, but they should definitely be stylish! Whether you want to wed your dogs or your cats, here are some of our favorite pet wedding décor ideas.
Two Dogs Standing in Front of a Mini Ceremony Arch With Balloons and Flowers: The Dogvine
Decorate a Miniature Ceremony Arch
Your first job is to create a ceremony arch where your pets’ nuptials can take place. Scale it down to size so your furry friends are perfectly framed in photos.
If you’re having trouble finding a traditional arch in miniature, create your own out of a hoop wreath. Round arches are popular with human brides and grooms, so you can be sure that it will make a great backdrop for your pets too.

Wedding Treat Bags With Cat Stickers: Martha Stewart
Hand Out Treat Bags For Pets
When the happy couple is furry, and you’re expecting their furry friends as guests, make sure you hand out treat bags! Basic favor bags are perfect for dog biscuits and cat treats. They can become a stunning part of your décor when arranged inside baskets or hung on a decorated wall.
Make sure there are treats for humans too! It’s a lot of fun if you bake cookies that look like dog treats or offer a trail mix that looks a bag of cat treats.
Hand Drawn Sign With Cocktails Inspired by Cats: Rock Pen & Ink
Craft Pet-Inspired Signature Cocktails With Signs
Did you know there’s a whole industry that creates specialty pet beverages? Mix up a concoction for the happy bride and groom to lap up from fancy bowls so they can toast to their new life together! You should also craft pet-inspired signature cocktails for human guests to enjoy.
No matter what beverages you have on hand, creating specialty signs that outline the ingredients of each one can be a fun way to decorate your pet wedding.
Wedding Cake With an Animal Cake Topper: Martha Stewart
Decorate Your Cake With the Purfect Topper
No wedding is complete without cake! Cats and dogs can nibble on a little bit of human cake (which makes for adorable pictures!), as long as the cake or frosting isn’t made out of chocolate. That means you and your human guests can enjoy a slice too. Just make sure you find the perfect cake topper. There are a lot of animal-themed toppers out there for you to choose from!
Bride and Groom Holding Cardboard Cutouts of Corgis: The Danger Booth
Set Up a Pet-Friendly Photo Booth
Half the fun of having a wedding for your pets is taking great pictures! One of the best ways to make sure you get some good shots is to set up a pet-friendly photo booth.
A photo booth can be as simple or as complex as you want. Circle garland that is draped on the wall is enough for a simple backdrop, while renting a professional photo booth is a fancier option. Cardboard cutouts of other animals and pets, as well as other props, like hats and glasses on sticks, can make your photo booth even more fun for humans and animals alike.
Ultimately, how you decorate your pets’ nuptials is up to you. It can be an extravagant affair where you spare no expense, or you can decorate more frugally with DIY projects. No matter what, you’re sure to delight guests and have adorable pictures you can admire for many years to come!
