Best Bride Ever Ditched Bridesmaids’ Bouquets For Rescue Puppies

Ask any basic girl with a Pinterest board how she imagines her bridal party, and whether she’s engaged or not, nine times out of ten she’ll be able to provide you with the exact number of her bridesmaids, the designer behind their dresses, and what variety every single stem in her bridesmaids’ bouquets will be. However, new bride Sarah Crain wasn’t about to copy the peony-and-rose bouquets that are overflowing on The Knot and decided to make her big day filled with more love and way more slobbery kisses when she decided to ditch the bridesmaids’ bouquets and replace them with rescue puppies instead.

Like many other millennials, Sarah loves puppies – so much so that she wanted to include rescue pups from the shelter where she works in Pennsylvania into her wedding. The puppies weren’t just for the bridesmaids either; the entire bridal party had a complete photoshoot full of puppy love.

Hopefully, puppy bouquets are a trend that takes off nationally, because honestly, I’m down. Who needs to spend a fortune on flowers when you can replace them with fluffy pups? In fact, let’s take it one step further – who needs guests when you can invite puppies instead? By the time I get married, I’m hoping it’s socially acceptable to spend my day dancing and drinking in a field with a hundred puppies to celebrate my day. Honestly, I really don’t even need a groom – playing with puppies would be good enough. While Sarah still invited her human loved ones to celebrate her nuptials, I’d like to give homegirl a shoutout for opening the door to dog-friendly weddings both now and in the future. It’s time to update my Pinterest boards – I have a ton of flowers, invitations, and decorations that need to be changed for my future puppy party.
