Fun Wedding Ideas With
Animal, Insect, Fish & Bird Themes

Animal wedding themes often tend to center around a favorite pet - such as a dog, cat, bird, or horse. Other favorites include: butterflies, dolphins, swans, lady bugs or the colorful beauty of ocean life.

Regardless of what you choose, a wedding that showcases your love and admiration for the creatures that inhabit this world is a wonderful way to celebrate. Therefore, I've put together several suggestions of what you can do to plan for the more popular bird/insect/fish/animal wedding themes.

Favorite Picks

One of the most popular choices is the butterfly wedding theme. These fluttering fantasies present a beautiful array of colors that would enrich any wedding celebration.

Another favorite is a dolphin sea theme wedding. These playful sea mammals are as intelligent as they are fun to watch. The perpetual delight on their faces always make me smile and their "laugh" is infectious. It's no wonder so many people choose dolphins to base their wedding theme around.

Do you love tropical fish? Plan a dramatic ocean wedding theme featuring beautiful and colorful sea creatures for an inviting under the sea celebration.

How about a romantic idea? The Heart and Swan Wedding Theme was the actual theme that my husband and I based our own celebration around. The idea behind it was "two hearts joined as one", and swans, who mate for life. It's a unique and personal theme that you may want to consider for yourselves.

Mix and Match

You can also mix and match fun wedding ideas when it comes to animals, like pairing up two different types of animals such as:

  • dogs and cats,
  • the "birds and the bees",
  • lions and tigers.
  • Combine a related symbolic icon with a favorite creature (such as the hearts and swans mentioned above). A dove theme a good example of how this can be done. You can make your wedding unique by pairing the doves with the biblical "olive branch". A dove is viewed as a bird of peace and extending the olive branch is also a symbol of peace. Pairing the two together makes for a unique and personalized marriage option.

    Other interesting pairings to consider would be:

  • hummingbirds and trumpet type flowers;
  • penguins and tuxedos;
  • polar bears and ice;
  • panda bears and bamboo.

    How about planning your marriage around a creature that is endangered? Instead of guests bringing you gifts, you may ask them to make a donation to a specific organization instead. Not only would you have a wonderful theme to base your wedding around, it's a heartfelt gesture and thoughtful way to help save a species from extinction.
