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.

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.

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.
