Pets At Weddings

Considering having your pooch at your big day? Will Rover be a part of the ceremony? Walk down the aisle? Party all night long? Here are some things to consider before you say I do to bringing your doggie to your wedding!



1. First, find out if your venue allow pets. Typically B&B’s, Farm Type Venues and Outdoor Estates will say ok to your four legged friend being on the property.

2. If your venue is on board, consider how easy it will be to keep your pooch contained, out of trouble and have easy access to grassy areas for potty breaks.

3. Even though this is your big day, you have to take your guests into consideration. Does anyone have a severe pet allergy or aversion to dogs? This can be a deal breaker for some people.

4. Since you and your significant other will be a bit busy, have a designated doggie sitter to take the reins. You’ll need someone to make sure your best bud gets food, water and taken out.

5. Is your dog a veteran family member that knows how to chill? Having a dog jumping all over you and your guests, barking and attacking the buffet may not be appropriate for this setting.

6. If you’re on the fence about your fur baby being at the wedding, consider these options. Have someone at the ceremony to oversee the dogs care and promptly following your I do’s return them to the room. It’s helpful if you’re staying on the property where the wedding is taking place. If you decide to leave your dog home for the I do’s, consider doing your engagement shoot with your pet to relieve the added stress of having them at the actual wedding.
