Should you invite your dog to your wedding?
Are you thinking about including your dog at your wedding? Here are a few things to consider:
Ask your venue if they allow dogs
If you plan on bringing your pet to your wedding then check with the venue what their policy is – some venues may not allow pets on site, others will have stipulations on keeping them outside the building. Chat with your wedding co-ordinator and see what your options are.
How is your dog’s temperament?
Is your dog fairly social? Or is he/she likely to feel threatened by big groups of people? If you plan on having your dog at your wedding then first consider whether this is something your dog would enjoy. If you think your dog would love all that fuss and attention then go for it!
Make sure you appoint a dog sitter
Whether it’s one of your friends or a professional dog sitter, make sure one person has the responsibility of looking after the dog, making sure it has enough water and taking it away if it needs some space.
Decide when you want to the dog to be there
It might not be possible (or practical!) to have your dog sit through your ceremony, if you simply want to catch a few snaps with your beloved pet then ask your dog sitter to bring your dog to the reception drinks so you can have some fun photo opportunities and keep your guests entertained between reception drinks and wedding breakfast.
Think about the outfit
Nothing says awesome wedding like a dog in a wedding veil – there are tons of amazing companies out there that provide cute bow tie collars, doggy veils or even flower crowns.
