How to include our cats in the wedding day, without having them there?

Hi all,
Our three cats are our babies. I absolutely love them. Obviously we can’t have them there, and we don’t want to be over the top cat-y, but I would like to include them in some way. Maybe pictures or a cut out but I have no idea how to include that. We have a very rustic venue and our colors are burgundy, rust, marigold, and emerald and brown.

    I saw a bride on here do something like this with her dogs and I think it's super cute Smiley smile

    We got our cake topper from Etsy that included our kitties (and pups)! Everyone knows how much we love our fur-babies and thought this was so awesome. It was a nice way to include them while still keeping everything elegant and nice looking. The seller has a ton of different shapes for the kitties you can choose from.

    I've also seen some brides have a signature drink named after their pet

    We have a photo of us with our dog on our welcome/guest book table.

    I have also seen people name a signature drink at the bar after their pet. They advertise it with a picture of the pet/drink name/ingredients.

    I was thinking about that too! Plus the table photos are also great idea And I’m sure would make guests smile when they see them

    If you do a menu you can do “cat name specials” “cat name favorites” etc and have a picture of them!

    I've seen a framed photo of a cat (by himself, basically a headshot) included in the family tree display

    We are going to have photos of us, family, and our cats on display and the guests will be able to take what they want at the end of the wedding. FH is convinced that guests will snatch up photos of our Siamese because he's a "very handsome cat." Rofl eye roll. Sooo guests are going to leave photos of our tabby behind?? Haha

    We also attempted to take engagement photos with the cats at home. We're going to have those photos on display, as well.

    We had a cardboard cut out of our cat for pictures! We got it from Etsy.

    We did the cardboard cut outs on a stick of our kitties and it was super cute! Used them in a few pics. Cardboardcutouts.com I think it was that we used. And our signature drinks were named after them

    We did the cutouts. By the end of the night everyone was running around dancing with them. I’m obsessed with my girls so of course they were up front but having the cut outs by a photo booth would be a more subtle approach.

    I love this idea! We’ll probably have photo booth props and I was thinking of sticking them into there.

    Signature drinks named after each of your cats would be cute!
