Belated Wedding Theme Thursday: A Dachshund Wedding!

Got my days confused and didn't realize it was Thursday yesterday until almost midnight, and just wasn't up to attempting a blog post at that point. In honour of my "long dogz" I decided to feature dachshunds as this week's wedding theme!

If you are a dachshund owner you already know how owning a dachshund can be a life-changing event. These little weenies get under your skin (in a good way) and you end up hooked. It's hard to have just one! ha!

Here's some wedding ideas for dachsie owner that want to show their dachshund love in the theme of their wedding day celebrations!

First - the invites. How cute are these dachshund themed wedding invitations from Etsy sellers

For the ceremony, make sure your dachshund plays a role as maybe ringbearer...
 Etsy shop Reggieana makes this classic satin ringbearer pillow just for dogs! 

or maybe your dog will just watch your back and make sure nobody (else) messes with the bride's train...

Wedding attire for the groom - check out these dachshund cufflinks from
and for the bride, check out these Fornarina Dachshund Shoes 

check out these handpainted Doxie wedding shoes from Etsy seller norakaren:

At the reception there are tons of ways to incorporate dachshunds into your decor from the 
place cards, to ice sculpture:

to champagne flutes...

And if you are having a small wedding, this is a wonderfully unique dachshund themed guest book idea that can double later as wall art and a keepsake of your wedding. Each guest writes their wedding wishes for the couple inside a dachshund...

And we can't forget the cake! You could incorporate dachshunds in the cake decor itself...

or go for a more traditional cake design and leave the dachshunds for the cake topper:

I personally love these customized paper topper by Gwen at Concarta:

Guest favors could be these adorable dachshund mini key fobs, maybe with a thank you tag from the bride & groom attached with the date of the wedding:

or these yummy looking dachshund cookies from
They'd be so cute in a little window box with a ribbon and thank-you tag!

Or if you want to send a personalized thank you card after the wedding, offers this cute design:

However you decide to include your dachshunds in your special day, have fun and don't sweat the small stuff. :-)

Here's a link to a wonderful Facebook page from At-Choo featuring an album of pictures from a very special wedding featuring two beautiful rescued dachshunds who proudly play roles in their new Mom's wedding. So cute! Check it out!
