  • Bow Vows - Including Your Dog At Your Wedding

    Posted on August 8, 2013 by Lizzie

     

    I recently blogged about how the trend for including our pups at our nupts has filtered down to us normal folk and how much we're loving it! 

    Well, if you want your pet to be part of the ceremony here are a few ideas:

    Flower Bearer - flowers can be attached to the collar and look adorable.  Just make sure the flowers you choose are not toxic to dogs.

    Ring Bearer - attach a little pillow to the collar or attach the rings to the collar with ribbon.

    Poochy Poses - for many of the brides photos featuring their dogs were hands-down favourites and go on to become precious memories of very happy times.  Look for a photographer who will bring the same spirit and professionalism to capturing your furry friend in the wedding as they do to the rest of the wedding party.

    Include your dog in the engagement photos or on the save-the-date cards.

    Attendant - create a tulle collar with ribbons or from some of the bride’s veil material, as well as a satin lead to match the wedding dress.

    Cake Topper - commission a unique and personalised addition to your cake with a sugar crafted cake decoration of your pup.

    Dancing Dogs - if you think it's more sensible for your dogs to stay out of sight throughout the ceremony, after everyone has dined but before the cake cutting get the DJ to play "Who Let the Dogs Out,” and let them come blasting into the Reception for a short guest appearance.

    I hope this post has given you some ideas - or has made you smile as it has done for me while I've been writing it x

    Many of us consider our dogs to be part of the family, so it only makes sense that some couples are involving them in one of the most important days of their life!   Pooches are becoming a must-have wedding accessory; a trend which began in the weird and wonderful world of celebrity.

    Robbie Williams and Ayda Field's eight dogs were bridesmaids at their wedding; Wolf, a white Maltese-Poodle mix, was a witness for the nuptials of Ellen DeGeneres and Portia Ellen DeGeneres; Ricki Lake included her Goldendoodle, Jeffie and English Bulldog, Pacha, in her beach wedding; Gwen Stefani had her Hungarian Sheepdog, Winston, at her wedding and Adam Sandler's late Bulldog - the wonderfully named Meatball, was ring bearer when he tied the knot.

    Now this trend has filtered down to us normal folk and we're loving it!  More than 70 dog-loving brides want to include their pup at their nupts.
