Japan's 'Hotel Epinard Nasu' in Tochigi Prefecture allows guests to rent an alpaca for their wedding service. While alpacas may seem like an odd addition to a wedding ceremony, couples in Japan are eager to have the fluffy animals at their side as they exchange vows.

The Hotel Epinard Nasu is located next to a zoo and recently coordinated a promotional deal where couples can rent out animals for their ceremony. For a fee, couples can hire an alpaca to walk down the aisle with a dedicated trainer. The trainer will then handle the animal while wedding photos are being taken.

While the idea of an alpaca at a wedding may seem bizarre, it is worth noting that many couples have found unique ways of incorporating pets into their special day. Whether it's a dog, a cat or even an alpaca, animals are becoming a more common fixture at contemporary wedding ceremonies.
