There is a growing contingent in society so devoted to their dogs that they do anything to include their pooches in every milestone possible. Luckily, with today's more casual and personal weddings, nothing should stop couples from including their dogs in the matrimony, provided they are adequately trained and preparations have been made for their inclusion. These ideas will guide you, your pet, your guests, and your suppliers to the right direction.

Bringing pets in the ceremony and reception entails extra logistical arrangements. Double those efforts if the reception venue is separate from the ceremony venue. You can have your photos taken with your pooch during the preparations if you don’t want to go an extra mile. This poignant photo of the bride and her black furry friend shows the deep bond between them — certainly a photo to treasure for life.

Don’t you just love how the dog’s pink dainty dress matches the bride’s delicate makeup? Taking your photos before the wedding will make your pets less skittish because presumably, there will be fewer people during the preparations.
Of course, there should be no stopping you if you want your furry friends in the ceremony and reception. The results, after all, could be priceless.

All your loved ones are in your entourage, so why shouldn't you include your dog? Make sure that the entourage member who escorts the dog down the aisle has a natural love for dogs to avoid unwanted ruckus during the march.
