{ DOGS in WEDDINGS: Fun Ways to Include your Four-Legged Loves }


Okay, so anyone that knows me, knows I might have a slight obsession with my “fur-children”. I must admit, I’ve had floral arrangements and cupcakes made to look like my beloved fur-child, Chug, mostly as a joke, but, nonetheless a girl has done it! The truth is our pets have taken more of a staple in our lives than ever before and truly are considered family members. A lot of brides and grooms are trying to find unique and practical ideas to incorporate their four-legged family members in their special day. I definitely don’t suggest you do floral center pieces that resemble your dogs, cats, horses, etc., but to each their own; sometimes that stuff is downright hilarious! Anyhow, here are some fun, practical, and may I even say, CLASSY ideas to include your furry-family members and add a little more sweetness to your day!

How about a “getting ready” photo with your fur-family member, just in case they have to stay at home for the occasion. It’s like a dream of fancy and fluffiness!


Tuxes and bowties on fur children, it’s like cuteness OVERLOAD! If you can’t find a website, there’s great makers of these adorable outfits on pinterest and etsy. Even if they’re used just for a flower or shoe photo opp, could there be any cuter props for accessories!




OR have you seen these floral collars to match your flowers, the sweetness is unbearable!


Now, if you have a well trained fur-family member and are doing an outdoor wedding, here’s some FAB fur-friendly ideas! Pretty floral leashes, and those cute kiddos once known as flower girls or ring bearers, new duty of adding SO much cuteness, we can hardly handle!




Okay and I must add! I’m loving the new trend of the big round balloons! So, here’s a fun idea that I can’t get enough of too! Balloons on a fur child!


But maybe these balloons instead?! In your color scheme of course!


OR add the newest and cutest messenger for the, “Here Comes the Bride” sign!


If your fur-family members aren’t wonderfully trained, you can still can get away with a great family photo like this:


Four words: CUTEST CAKE TOPPERS EVER! (These both can be found on Pinterest!)



OR groom’s cakes are definitely a fun way to get away with adding a little crazy personality! Maybe we shouldn’t be so bias; let’s just call them “Personality Cakes”! It’s wild how crafty cakes have become in the last how many years, but what a perfect day to make a splurge and jump on the cake-fabulousity-wagon!


Okay, okay, to your pure devastation maybe it’s just inconceivable to have your dog’s presence at your wedding. Chin up friend! There’s always “Save the Dates”!


Hope you enjoyed you, fur-friend-lovers, you!
