Hey, Brides, Ditch the Bouquet and Walk With Puppies Down the Aisle Instead

Hey, Brides, Ditch the Bouquet and Walk With Puppies Down the Aisle Instead

Everyone who’s ever been to a wedding knows that the flowers are some of the most important and stressful things to purchase.  But a new trend might be replacing bouquets all together… puppies!

But not just any kind of dogs… adoptable puppies.  Yeah, a bride recently walked down the aisle clutching adorable puppies hoping to find their forever home.  Her bridesmaids also held dogs looking to be adopted.

Bride Meghan Butler told People the dogs made her wedding extra special AND happy!  She heard oohing, ahhing, and awwing!  Even the photographer, Brittany Boland, found the occasion magical:

“You put puppies and women together, and it was just a lot of squawking and squealing and smiling.”

Also, instead of wedding gifts, Meghan and her now-husband requested donations to the local animal shelter.

If you’re wondering about the puppies, all but one found their forever home that day.  Meghan put it best:

“It was really special. This is near and dear to my heart and to be able to bring awareness to the need for adoptions – that was the best part of my wedding. Besides marrying Brett of course!”
