While it may not be one of the hottest wedding trends on Pinterest for 2017, bridesmaids holding puppies instead of bouquets is definitely one of the cutest wedding trends we’ve seen this year.
Case in point: After seeing a picture of a bridal party holding puppies instead of bouquets last fall, Meghan Butler decided she wanted the same at her wedding since pet adoption is one of her passions. In fact, she and her husband share four adopted pets—two cats and two dogs—between them.
In addition to bringing awareness to pet adoption through their wedding photos, the couple also made a donation to the Greater Charlotte SPCA instead of buying wedding favors.
Their “bouquets” drew so much attention to the adoptable pups that all of the puppies have been adopted since their wedding.”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,” Butler told People. “Besides marrying Brett of course!”
