I wouldn't try to teach him…I'd use photoshop or have someone who knows how manipulate a photo of him holding a sign saying what you want it to say.

You could tie the sign to his bit/halter/bridle in such a way that it looks like he's holding it?

Cute cute cute idea!!

What about putting something on his blanket? Or putting something around his neck like a flower lei and putting the sign on that?

Nah, I think OP's idea the best - get the horse to pick up the flag & wave it when the time's right. Horse poor, sounds like she wants a real live horse present & not sure you can photoshop those! ...just don't teach him to respond to 'is there anyone who doesn't agree to the wedding'!

Clicker training.

My bad… "wedding announcement" to me means the same as a wedding invitation or a type of announcement sent out after the wedding. At any rate, I wish the OP well!
