Things to consider
Do your Pets Make the Wedding Ceremony Cut?
You must be honest and ask yourself if your pet is well-behaved enough to participate in your wedding. You don’t want your wedding day to be ruined by a pet catastrophe! Here are some points to consider: Will your pet be comfortable? How does your pet react to large crowds and noisy situations? Does your pet have unpredictable behavior? Does your pet respond to basic commands? Is your pet well-trained and obedient? If you have any doubts about your pets, you might reconsider and instead incorporate your pets into wedding photos, display a photo of you and your beloved pets, and/or add a wedding cake topper that is a replica of your pets.
Because including pets in a wedding ceremony is non-traditional, ensure that pets are welcome by checking with the church officiant, ceremony venue and/or reception venue. Everyone should be aware of your pet’s wedding role. If they are uncomfortable or worried, reassure them that your pet is in superior hands, potty trained, and well-behaved. You may want to introduce your pets to the venue owner to demonstrate how lovable and obedient they are.
Choose an Appropriate Role
Ring bearer, bridesmaid, groomsmen, flower girl, "Best Pet" or simply allow them to be present during the ceremony to bear witness to your nuptials.
Decide on Wedding Attire
A few ideas include choosing a bow tie to hold the wedding rings, a t-shirt with the name of the bride and groom, a pet tuxedo or pet wedding gown, a pet bridesmaid dress, and/or pet-friendly ring bearer pillows. Make sure that any "special" clothing or wedding attire you choose for your pet is pet appropriate, to enable him/her to easily relieve themselves without soiling the garment.
Get your Pets Groomed
You want your pets to look and smell their best on your wedding day as well as keep guests with dander allergies from having a reaction. We provide a “grooming taxi” to your favorite groomer for $25 RT. Make sure you are making their appointment a day or two before the event so there is plenty of time to get your pet to the wedding.
