Add Llamas to Your Wedding Guest List
“Professional party animal” might sound like something you called yourself in college, but it’s also a new service from Mtn Peaks Therapy Llamas & Alpaca. They rent out camelids for extra-memorable weddings or other events. They promise llamas or alpacas decorated to complement your event, guaranteeing that their therapy animals “can easily handle all ages, and any size of crowd.” The llamas show up dressed for a party in hats, veils, and other festive items.
The llama-wedding trend has caught on around Portland, Oregon, and Vancouver, Washington. The animal-therapy center is located in Brush Prairie, Washington. Although the animals are available for travel in this region, the center has several policies to keep their beloved animals safe. They avoid traveling with the animals at peak traffic times and try to avoid situations where the llamas or alpacas would have to be in extreme heat, ice, or snow.
But if you’re planning a spring wedding at a non-peak traffic time, and you’re in the area, these party animals could make your special day extra special! And all proceeds go toward funding the center’s Therapy and Education Program, so it really couldn’t get any better.
