A Furry-tale Wedding

Ever wonder how you could include your pet in your wedding festivities? There is a growing trend for including your fur babies in your big day because, let’s be honest, they’re family, too!

When Your Pets Can’t Attend

Sometimes pups and pets aren’t allowed at certain venues, so include them in your engagement photo session or in a snapshot for your invitations. Just make sure you book a photographer who has experience working with furry friends and will come well prepared to get the perfect shot.

Another great idea is displaying pet pics on your wedding day. Create a cookie or other dessert in the shape of a doggy treat and get a picture of your fur baby next to the goodies. This shows your guests that you wanted to incorporate your furry loves and is the perfect way to show off your whole family. Add a sign with a witty explanation and check out local pet bakeries for some super sweet treats.

When Your Pets Can Attend

Prepare your guests by including a note in your invitations that your pet will be at the wedding. It’s a good idea to mention details such as breed and size. Some guests might have allergies or be afraid of certain animals. It’s best to inform so everyone can enjoy your special day. With that said, making sure your pet is comfortable with strangers is a must. You want a stress-free day for you and your furry friends, so simply bringing a favorite toy or treat can help.

You’ll also want to consider hiring a pet sitter who will be there all day to make sure your pet is entertained, fed, and where you need them to be at the right time. Furry friends can really bring extra joy to your day and even become the life of the party, but remember: safety first. Always keep them on a leash to prevent any accidents.

Finally, look into pre-wedding obedience classes. Even though you may think your pup is always well behaved, it’s best to be absolutely sure.

Head to our Facebook or Instagram and tell us: how are you including your pet in your wedding? Just hashtag #SAPetWeddings!
