Including Our Furbaby Lexi In The Engagement Celebrations

Mr P and I don't have kids of the human kind but we have a three year old furbaby Lexi - a Rottie X Staffy who we rescued from the RSPCA two years ago and she is like our little girl.

We have taught her commands and manners, we reward her with toys and treats, tell her off when she's naughty, but most of all we give her so much love and attention that I hope one day she will forget the life of mistreatment she had before she met us and all she will know is our home and the love she has in it.

So when it comes to special moments in Mr P and Is life's naturally we want Lexi to be a part of that - like the engagement celebrations. Lexi can't come to the engagement party with us so I came up with a sweet way of having her there not physically but in essence.

I decorated a cute little blackboard sign with pretty paper and a stick on heart and then, well, the sign says it all ...... MY MUM AND DAD ARE GETTING MARRIED!

I took a few photos of Lexi with her sign and I'm going to frame the best one and take it to the party with us.

Lexi started off a little bit unsure as she is at times, but after we played around a bit she put on her happy face and started to enjoy being a dog model!

Keeping Lexi still for the photos was tricky, what do they say kids and pets are the hardest to photograph! 

Now I need to pick just one photo to use which is hard because Lexi's so stinking cute in all of them!

I'm having so much fun with the engagement party planning with the big day less than two weeks away now. I've been working on a few more DIY projects which I'll share with you soon.

Would you include pets in your Engagement (or Wedding!) celebrations?

  1. Oh goodness, I just love this and she did perfect as a doggy model by your chalkboard sign!

    1. Thanks Carrie she took a bit of convincing to look at the camera but we got there eventually!

  2. We are getting married on Anzac Day, and our 1 year old groodle pup, Ernie, will be joining us for the ceremony and photos afterwards. My kitty, Scootie, can't come. So I am going to steal your mini blackboard idea and get a photo of her with it on the day. I have been working on a blackboard for the welcome sign and she is obsessed with it. Loving Lexi the model, but if I had to choose a photo it would the one of her on the grass where she is smiling. Love it. Have fun planning. :)

    1. I love that idea! Yes do one for the kitty cat :)
      Blackboards are a lot harder to write on than they look, dont you think! Im sure its going to look amazing.
      Good luck with the planning and wedding xx

  3. I absolutely love this idea. I have three fur babies that my husband and I love so much! Congrats on your engagement too. Thank you for sharing at Motivational Monday Link Party! Hope to see you again Sunday night.
