Make your kitteh an honorary usher #Decor#cat#DIY#steal-this-idea November 16 2012 | Catherine Clark bijouxandbits Tribesmaid Onesonicbite and her groom Jon are cat parents and would love to have their kitty be included in the wedding. See, we cat people are jealous of all the adorable ring dogs. But bringing a cat to the ceremony would only lead to certain drama and crazy cat overreaction, so it's best they stay home and nap. Onesonicbite is creating an awesome wooden cut-out of her cat Toulouse to guard their program information board! It's a fabulous way to honor the feline fur baby while not putting her through the stress of actually being there. One of Jon's best men will be painting the final product after his father cuts her into shape. It takes a village to make a big wooden cat. We will definitely be wanting to see the final version of this. Oh, and this isn't the first time we've seen kitties represent. Check out Millenyum's invitations featuring Zulay.

Show/Hide comments [ 9 ] We have four cats and this is super fantastically awesome. 2 agree Reply I wish we had awesome friends who can paint our cat and steal your idea! 1 agrees Reply Yes!!! I have been waiting for a great idea on how to incorporate our feline fur babies into our wedding! This is amazing!! 2 agree Reply Definitely not a bad idea. We were thinking of making a photo collage of fiancé's family cats and our "first cat as a couple" cat… even the well-behaved one would be a disaster at an actual ceremony! 1 agrees Reply We never did figure out a way to incorporate our two cats into the day except that we both mentioned them in our vows. My brother and sister-in-law had them rendered in fondant! http://images20.fotki.com/v106/photos/0/75120/10842640/064-vi.jpg 1 agrees Reply We named our signature cocktails after our cats. We asked the bartender to keep track of which cat had the most "votes." Mine won, of course! :3 3 agree Reply I did this for my sister's wedding in Mexico! I used ShinDigs.com and they sent LIFESIZED cutouts of Reggie, Sheldon and Arthur, and we placed them next to me to surprise Sis as she walked down the aisle with Dad. She held it together til she saw Big Reg! She carried him around all night, petting him. (Sheldon is about 2 feet bigger than the other 2 boys, not sure why. I guess the image was larger?)

Reply Ther will be a drawing of our cats playing with wedding rings as a STD. On the first sketch the illustrator sent me, one of them definitely had a "grumpy cat" look. Well, we'll see. 2 agree Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked *Comment Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
