Growing up, I had always thought “I hope one day I marry someone that is as excited as my dog is for me to come home” and the sentiment remains. For all my animal lovers out there…you know how special dogs are in our lives and how they are with us through the sunny days and rainy days – just like what a marriage should be based on. So why wouldn’t you include your furry friend in your big day? The day you cross your paws and hope you all will be one big family happy.
If your venue allows animals, perfect! Put a bow-tie on Boomer or a collar of flowers on Daisy and have an entrusted family member walk them down the aisle to be a part of your ceremony. Bonus: Small ring bearer pillows can be easily attached to a dog collar.
If your venue is not pet-friendly, there are still plenty of ways to incorporate your best friend in the festivities. You can include them in your engagement photo shoot or even have a family member stop them by for a sloppy good luck kiss and photo op pre-ceremony.
Here are some photos that make our hearts melt and tails wag.
