Latest Wedding Trend: Donkeys Donkeys are participating in human wedding these days. Examples: Donkeys/jackasses dressed in traditional Southwestern garb (or outfitted to match your dress and wedding colors!) who serve beer, wine, soda at your rehearsal dinner or your cocktail hour. Guests can give these long-eared friends a hug, a treat (donkeys love carrots), or they can simply take a photo to remember the experience forever. NOTE: They Don’t Make A Mess. Really Since the donkeys aren’t around for more than two hours, they rarely create problems, but just in case, they are accessorized with a discreet donkey diaper.
