Weddings are no exception. So we weren't the least bit surprised when we saw one Boston bride's Craigslist post seeking six "sociable" corgis for her April wedding. According to the post, the plan is to have the bridesmaids hold the pups in lieu of traditional bouquets at the ceremony, which sounds like a stroke of genius. You can read the full text below:
This next April, I will be getting married to the man of my dreams and we will be having the most wonderful storybook wedding that Boston has ever seen. The icing on the cake is sweet, but there's one thing that would be even sweeter than that. Traditionally, bridesmaids hold bouquets; in our wedding, I want them to hold corgis.
Unfortunately, I do not have enough corgis for my bridesmaids. I require six more in order to make this dream come true. I'm looking to rent six corgis for roughly two and a half hours during the ceremony. Because this a my dream wedding, price is negotiable and I appreciate your understanding. Please reach out to me if you have six sociable corgis which you would be willing to rent out. These animals would be treated perfectly, and I would love to get us all together to familiarize ourselves with each other.
In addition to pay, I would be happy to also share some cake with you.
The bride, who does not have any corgis of her own, later told The Huffington Post via email that she has received nearly 100 responses so far from dog owners, as well as photographers and justices of the peace. She plans to ask the groomsmen carry the corgis down the aisle and then hand them off to the bridesmaids, she said. Due to their weight, the corgis will then stand next to the bridesmaids, instead of being held for the duration of the ceremony.
All we have to say is that we hope we are "corgially" invited to the wedding.
