For many of us, our four-legged friends are part of the family. So why wouldn’t we want to include them in our wedding day? Yes it’s becoming more and more popular to include your dog (or dogs!) in your big day! As an award-winning wedding co-ordinator, I’ve seen lots of couples go for a dog friendly wedding and with a bit of planning it can be pretty easily done.
You do need to consider a few things first. The most important is the temperament of your dog. Is he or she happy to be surrounded by crowds of people, many of whom they may not know? Are they a bit wild or giddy and likely to jump up on people’s dresses and suits and possible chew anything from furniture to shoes? Or is your dog an old timer who may not be up to all the stresses of the day? These are things you really have to consider before you decide to include your canine in the celebrations.
If you do think your dog is up for it and you’ve decided to include them, then here’s a few tips to help it all run smoothly. Of course if your dogs temperament isn’t right, then don’t worry there’s plenty of ways around it. If you’d like discuss this or any aspect of your wedding in more detail then please get in touch.
