What can go wrong if you ask a friend to look after your dog at the wedding! (Is it necessary to book a chaperone and plan an itinerary?)
A Helping Friend can end up a Yelping Friend!Weddings are often whirlwinds of activity from early morning until late in the evening. Is the friend you're entrusting the care of your pet to a professional when it comes to providing wedding pet care? Besides remembering all of the materials they will need to bring to the event, will your friend be relegated to pet care for the entire day? If not, what happens to your fur ball when they want to also share in the wedding festivities and join photos etc? Will they be dressed for pet care or for the wedding?Let’s face it, pets are super awesome, but they’re not really designed for the tuxedo and ball gown crowd. They tend to be a bit messy and you’ll want someone to be there to clean up after them. Beyond the actual pet care cleanup, you’ll also want to ensure that there’s someone to comfort your pet in case they are anxious with so many people, and attentive enough to chase after them in case they get loose (chasing a dog in heels is probably not how you want to spend your day!), or to avoid guests who may be either allergic or afraid of your pet.Finally it's worth considering the aspect of: Professional Pet Insurance & Public Liability. Pets can sometimes do strange things when you least expect them, especially when confronted with unusual situations and in public with crowds of people. It only takes second, and before you know it your dog is off and running and a law suit can quickly follow. Most standard pet insurance will not cover your pet taking part in your wedding day or being transported to the venues, so don’t get caught out. With Lead Me Down The Aisle, VIP Wedding Chaperone service you are fully covered with our professional pet care insurance and public liability should the worse ever happen.
How many people in the UK actually have their pet at their wedding?
Latest stats show that over 10% of couples now getting married have their favourite pet at their wedding. With around 270,000 marriages in the UK in 2017, that suggests that 27,000 wedding couples included their pets in their big day that year, and the percentage continues to rise. And with the increase in local dog friendly wedding venues, across Berkshire, Hampshire and Surrey, more and more couples want their four legged best friends to attend the wedding service and reception.
Can you book this service as a gift or a surprise?
Our favourite Wedding Day Dog moments have to be when we're asked by the groom or the bride to organise A SECRET WEDDING DAY DOG CELEBRATION EXPERIENCE. In this instance, the 'betrothed' partner and all the guests have absolutely no idea that their best four legged friend will partake! It's always a very magical moment when a VIP (Very Important Pet) suddenly appears with wagging tail and pads over to meet their trusted owner at the front who's about to get married. Seeing the reaction of the Bride or Groom as they realise it's their dog coming towards them whilst the guests laugh and clap in the joy of the moment - it can't be beaten. As well as adding to the enjoyment factor, a surprise appearance always seems to melt away the pressure and final nerves that have been building towards the big moment. Everyone involved from the wedding couple to the guests relax down as the mood lightens with the devotion of a pet.

A simple addition - a priceless memory
WOW: The advice, creativity, dog performance coaching and care given by the wonderful team at Lead Me Down The Aisle was exemplary. The itinerary they put together for our wedding day dog was everything I dreamt of. Not a dry-eye in the church! My advice to anyone reading this: don't settle for a 'drop-in service' where you dog is ushered-in for a 2 minute tail wag at your wedding. Make it memorable. Plan-in some 'animal magic'. Get the experts involved. It doesn't have to cost the earth.Sent on 28/01/2019
A wedding day dog called Archie filmed the wedding
SARA, TOBY AND ARCHIE, LONDONSent on 26/01/2019
You made the whole wedding day dog experience so enjoyable! We loved your relaxed approach and how comfortable you made Archie on the day. So many guests told us afterwards how great you were at looking after Archie and socialising with him at the reception. We loved the VIP video cam clips that we got back from Archie when he met and greeted our guests
A wedding day dog called Daisy won our hearts

Norman is professional and very likeable. Norman and his team helped plan and organise our wedding day VIP itinerary for Daisy and shared with us some wonderful ideas on how best to include Daisy on our wedding day. They took the worry out of including Daisy in our wedding celebrations and made it so easy, having her there with us.
