like a veil and flowers, pigeons and horses are part of almost every wedding – but alpacas? The latest trend from the USA is now spilling over to Germany. More and more couples are renting the cute animals that look like mini llamas for their big day.
Wedding trend: alpacas
Many probably know the term alpaca in connection with cozy sweaters. Indeed, the alpaca is a type of camel from South America that is bred mainly for its wool. But the sweet four-legged friends have now found a new job on social media: wedding guests.
Many couples integrate the fluffy, nicely decorated alpacas into their wedding pictures.
Rent an alpaca for your wedding
It costs around 300 euros to rent the animals. There are still only a few providers where you can rent alpacas. But at the Alpakahof in Kananohe, near Hanover, you can get married in the midst of cute animals.
