Flower Girls and Ring Bearers, Northstar Style!
What about your boy pup? Well, he can be the ring bearer of course! I loved how Heidi and Steve put a bow tie on their pooch (courtesy of Emily Main Photography):
You could also consider tying rings around his neck (not the real ones of course- those should stay safe with your maid of honor and best man).
Do you have two male dogs and you just can’t bring your self to make one the guest book attendant? Here is an interesting description of a Coinbearer from Wikpedia:
Quick reminder, our lodging is generally not dog friendly because the next guest may have an allergy. However, we can make special accommodations for our Weddings, such as a deep cleaning fee after you depart.
“The coinbearer is similar to that of the ringbearer. The coin bearer is a young boy who marches on the wedding aisle to bring the wedding coins. The wedding coins are more commonly known as wedding arrhae.
The coins are presented to the celebrant to offer their blessing upon the coins for prosperity, and unity. Once the minister administers their blessing to the coins, they hand the coins over to the groom to give to the open hands of his bride as a symbolic gesture that the couple will always be provided for.
The coins usually consists of thirteen gold and silver coins which represent Jesus and his apostles. The gold and silver brought together symbolises harmony and unity. Images on the coins can be simple or very artistic, images such as doves, hands holding, sun and moon, to mountain ranges.
Historically, Spanish colonizers started this custom. Initially performed only at Roman Catholic ceremonies, most other Christian wedding ceremonies have also adopted this tradition.”
P.S. Real Weddings Magazine just announced their Cover Model Contest for the next issue and she could be YOU! Entries are due by January 31st.
