I won’t lie, any time I see an Insta photo of a couple and their ‘wedding dog’ I double tap it like my life depends on it. Whether they’re wearing a floral wreath or have a greenery garland wrapped around their leash, they’re the epitome of adorable and the only possible match to the bride’s gorgeousness on such a momentous day. Couples have been involving their pets in their wedding events for a while now, but it’s only been in the last few years that brides and grooms have truly gone all in on sharing the spotlight with their shaggy soulmates (and, of course, it’s not just dogs either - cats, bunnies, birds, horses, pigs, etc. have all played roles too). We caught up with party and event essentials couturier, Sip Hip Hooray, to get a read on all the fun things you can do with pet portraits. And spoiler alert? We are here for ALL of them.
Toast-worthy and then some
Just a bit about Sip Hip Hooray straight away. Their in-house design and customer service teams work hand-in-hand with customers (the majority of them, creative couples gearing up for their weddings) to guarantee a seamless and bespoke personalization process for wedding invitations, hand-drawn artworks, and custom stationery. They offer in-house design services, which include custom monograms, logos, wedding crests, and watercolor art, but the most notable is their hand-drawn pet and venue illustrations. Completely drawn-from-scratch, their detailed renderings lend a truly one-of-a-kind, personal touch to any of the made-to-order items they print them on.
From portraits of their clients’ best, furry friends to an illustration of the venue they cannot wait to exchange vows at, Sip Hip Hooray’s handiwork is unmatched. Not to mention, Meagan and her entire team will be the hype squad you need when you’re getting ready to wed.
“Our signature, best-selling dog portrait can coolers and other pet featured favors are by far our favorite custom products! Always hand-drawn-to-order for every order, we work with you to get your pups likeness just right.” ~ Sip Hip Hooray
Masters of their mugs
If you’re obsessed with your pet(s) and you need them at your party, one way or another, this is what we recommend:
A feature in your first look. Because the three (or four or five) of you are family, and let’s be honest, your pups (cats, horses, what have you) will be just as blown away by your wedding day glow-up as your soon-to-be spouse. We can promise that.
A ceremonial walk down the aisle. Because the photos will be everything.
And their portrait on your paper goods/custom products. Because once they’ve gotten their pictures taken, eaten their share of canapés, and had some signature sips - out of special occasion water dishes, hopefully - they’ll probably want to rest for the rest of the night. Their faces on your can coolers, cocktail napkins, takeaway treat bags (and lots more) will make a tremendous impression on you and your guests.
Sip Hip Hooray made it the barking best day ever… Just sayin’!
“We absolutely love the koozies that we ordered from Sip Hip Hooray for our daughter’s wedding on May 8, 2021! They are excellent quality and the color was just perfect for the wedding. The drawing of the pups is so sweet and looks just like them! We will definitely use Sip Hip Hooray for future events!” ~ Jeanie
“Such a perfect surprise for my sister’s wedding! We were able to incorporate her and her fiancé’s dog on their wedding day! It offered such a nice touch given their wedding changing to a small event due to COVID. Meagan and everyone were so responsive and easy to work with! I highly recommend!” ~ Kerilsteve
“My pet sketch came out perfectly! I made a small change request on the first draft and they got back to me with an updated draft within 24 hours! This company is the best—very accommodating, patient with me and all of my specifications, and turnaround time was quicker than I expected.” ~ Francesca
“We absolutely loved working with this company for our wedding! They captured our dogs perfectly and they were a huge hit for drinks. They were fast and friendly! We highly recommend!” ~ Steffaney
