Calling on all my dog lovers out there, these tips are for you! We all know your fur baby is more than just a pet to you they are family and you cant have a grand day without all your family present. Below are a few ways to include your pet in your wedding day:
01. Walk Down The Aisle Together- Bride or Groom
Walking down the aisle can be nerve racking as all eyes are on you. If you choose to include your dog in your day perhaps maybe your pet can help calm your nerves and allow you to be in the present and enjoy the special moment by strolling down the aisle with you.
02. Have Them Stand At The Alter With You
Is your pet well behaved? If so, having them stand with your bridesmaids, or groomsmen is a special way to include him or her in your ceremony.
03. Mention Them In Your Ceremony Or Reception Speech
Its always special to include your loved ones in your speech. Plus we all know dog parents love talking about their fur babies.
04. Include Them During Your Designated Photo Shoot
There are countless ways to include your pet in your photos. I think its fun to include them in both bridal party pictures, and with you both as husband and wife. If your pet knows this trick a cute shot is placing the rings on their nose, it makes for an adorable photo.
05. Dress To Impress
Your fur baby wants to look just as good as you do so dressing him or her in festive attire would be that much more adorable. There is multiple options. You can be simple and put a bow tie on, or go big and get them a doggy suit or dress. If you want to be a little more unique and add that special touch you could decorate their collar and leash in greenery and flowers.
06. Ring Bearer
If your pet is obedient and trust worthy than your adorably dressed fur baby can walk your rings down the aisle instead of using the traditional ring bearer OR you can do both because why not!
07. Specialty Bar Drink In Their Name
A traditional bar menu for a wedding reception usually consist of at least one specialty drink that compliments the bride and the groom. A fun way to include your fur baby would be coming up with a cute cocktail name in honor of them like….The ‘Coco’!
