Dogs at Weddings

What do we want? Dogs at weddings! When do we want it? ALLLLLL the time.

Are you planning on having your four legged friend as part of your wedding celebrations? Well why not? They are part of the family aren’t they. Lots of my lovely couples choose to include their furry companions in the wedding plans but it’s not always straight forward. Here’s some hints and tips to help.

1. Choose a dog friendly venue

Not every venue will allow pets on site and some won’t allow your dogs to be left alone in the bedroom. If having your doggo is an important part of your wedding plans then check with your venue if they can be accommodated.

2. Hire a doggy babysitter. 

Do you have a dog walker? How about hiring them to look after your dog on the day of the wedding. This works great if you’ve got different locations during the day time and they aren’t all dog friendly.

3. Make sure they dress the part. 

It’s a wedding after all! There’s loads of crazy dog owner shops online where you can get everything from bowties to tutus for your doggy friends.

4. Have somewhere quiet that they can go to.

Not all doggos will appreciate being cuddled by loads of guests so make sure there’s somewhere quite they can sneak away to if it gets a bit overwhelming.

5. Plan a doggy honeymoon

If your furry child can’t make it to the wedding day why not plan a short break away to somewhere lovely and dog friendly in the UK before heading off on your main honeymoon?
