Dogs are like family – they live with you, eat with you, and sometimes even sleep curled at your feet :) So it’s no wonder that pet involvement in weddings is on the rise. In fact, venues are more open than ever to having pups included in the wedding celebration. Whether your wedding is held on an open beach, at a rustic winery, or a glamorous hotel, most venues will allow dogs on the property for at least the ceremony and photo opportunities. It’s the perfect time to unleash your pet’s wildest doggy dreams!
Not sure how to incorporate your cute canine? Below are five ways that dogs can lend a helping paw on your wedding day:
Since dogs are constant companions, why not include them in your portraits? We love how dogs help reflect the couple’s personality by simply being in the photo. They also add a little humor to the occasion! Pet-friendly portraits like the ones below are ideal for printing and framing, and make a nice addition to the home!
2. Getting Ready Photos
Having your loyal best friend by your side is sure to soothe any pre-ceremony jitters. Your pup will listen to your needs, offer a paw, gaze at you in awe and give their bark of approval, followed by a big, wet kiss. We can’t think of a better way to spend the last few moments before tying the knot.
3. Walk Down the Aisle
Big or small, your furry friends will make an impact at your wedding, and show everyone how important they are in your lives. Make them part of your day by having them strut down the aisle au natural! Or, spiff them up with a matching bow tie and cuffs, so they can deliver a special note to your significant other.
4. Offer Unconditional Love
Your dogs will help to spread the joy on your wedding day, and remind everyone that they are appreciated!
5. Add Style and Humor
Doggy divas, comical canines and other pup personalities help set the tone for memorable photos. Our photographers did a great job capturing these candid canines in action!
