5 Ways to Include your Dog in your Wedding

We all have that friend who will sign the dog’s name in her Christmas cards, maybe even with a little paw print next to it. Well this blog post is in homage to her and all the puppy lovers out there.

Your wedding day is arguably the most special and memorable day ever, so it seems silly not to include your little canine friend.

There are a number of sweet ways to get them involved, which will inevitably bring a smile to your guests’ faces.

Here are our top 5 ways:

Save the date

Save the dates are becoming more and more extravagant, why not keep it simple? You know the saying ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’, well that sums up this idea perfectly. All you need is a sign or chalkboard with your message, then it can be draped over your dog’s collar.

You can take as many photographs as you need until you get the perfect shot! This might be more appropriate if your pup is a little mischievous and might play up on your actual wedding day.

The Ring Bearer

This idea is for braver dog owners for obvious reasons. But if you think you can pull it off, it’s sure to get a few ‘oohs and ahs’ in the crowd.

Please take caution if your wedding ceremony is being held outside. We wouldn’t want a squirrel to appear in a tree and your dog to run off with the rings on board!

The Bouquet

If you don’t want to worry about having poo bags at the ready on your big day. There is a way of keeping your pet’s presence close by without them actually being there.

Your bouquet is one of the focal points as you walk down the aisle, so why not add a personal touch by attaching your dogs’ name tag.

This can also be a beautiful way to remember pets that have passed away.

Cute Collars

If none of the ideas above take your fancy, nothing can beat a cute collar!

If your dogs were originally owned by your groom it only seems right for them to be one of the groomsmen. Make them look the part with a bow tie collar; forget the ‘Best Man’ you now have a ‘Best Dog’.

Perhaps you want your pup to match the bridesmaid dresses, or your wedding colour theme. A boho chic way of achieving this look is with a floral neck collar. There are so many DIY tutorials on YouTube for ‘flower crowns’, all you need to do is adjust the size to fit over your dog’s furry ears!
