barn owl ringbearer

 An owl ringbearer? Amusing. Very Potteresque and also perfect for Goths. I prefer seeing owls in the woods, myself. Wedding ceremonies are intense enough without having to worry about an owl taking a mid-flight foo-foo on your Aunt Fanny’s head. Or worse dropping the ring and losing it forever. I’ll stick with the cute nephew on this one. Interesting nonetheless.

    That's so cool! We're planning on having our hamster be our ringbearer. We've had him for a little over two-years and he was our first animal together. He's so very smart and well-behaved. He had cancer late last year and we're hoping he'll live long enough to make it to our June wedding where we will put him on a little pillow with our rings and wear a little top hat (his human daddy makes hats for him and he wears them - people all over the country have seen his pictures and love it!). Some people don't like the idea, but it's our wedding, small and intimate and we want to include him and make everyone smile. And you can't help but smile when Lemiwinks is in a hat snuffling around!

    I must say, Christine, that's the first time I've ever heard of a hamster as a ringbearer. I've heard of dogs - even cats, but hat-wearing hamsters? You are one original (and brave) lady, my dear!
