Chances are if you have a pet dog, they are a huge part of your life, so why not let your pooch play a paw-t in your big day? There are so many creative and different ways to include your furry friend in your wedding. Whether you make them a member of the bridal party, or include them in your stationary decor, or favors — let your sweet pup be apart of your big day. Below are some creative ideas for incorporating your pup into your wedding.
Save the Date
Send out a dog-themed save-the-date. We can’t think of a more adorable way to announce your big day!
Get Ready Together
Will you and your bridesmaids get ready together? Let your little guy or girl tag along. If possible, find them a matching outfit.
Dress Them Up
Dogs in weddings should look just as dapper as the rest of the wedding party. Think bow-ties and tuxedos for boys, floral collars and tutus for girls.
Include Your Furbaby In Bridal Party Pictures
Snap a few shots holding him or her.
Have a Furry Flower Girl or Ring Bearer
Let the ring bearer or flower girl walk your pup down the aisle.
Carry Them With You
Sometimes it’s just not feasible for dogs to attend weddings. In those cases, extreme dog-lovers could always carry a printed photo of their pup throughout the big day.
Serve Dog-Themed Drinks
Signature drinks named after your pups is a clever way to include them in the reception without worrying about wrangling them throughout the night. Display a cute chalkboard sign (like this one by PaperTangent) with the offerings. You could even order doggie drink stirrers or canine cocktail napkins.
