The Best Ways to Include Your Pet in Your Wedding Day

Who said your pet can’t be a special guest at your wedding? We are 100% behind you because we, too, believe that your pets are family. A wedding is all about two families coming together and if those families include pets then those pets have a right to be at your wedding.

Okay, maybe that’s a little too heavy-handed because there could be allergy issues, the venue could have some rules about pets, and taking your pet overseas to a destination wedding is probably not something your pet will enjoy, especially if there is a quarantine period. That said, sometimes having a pet in your wedding is perfectly acceptable and we think it’s adorable!

How to Have Your Pet in Your Wedding

Let’s assume you’ve considered your pet’s temperament and any other downsides, and you just know that Fido or Fluffy is the perfect wedding accessory and will do wonderfully at the wedding. You’re willing to take the extra steps to make sure they arrive for their part and then leave not too long after so the day isn’t too stressful.

Then the big question is, how to have your pet play a part in your wedding. Try these ideas to see if they fit, if not you’ll still get all the feels thinking about furry friends in wedding attire.

Considerations When You Have a Pet at a Wedding

We hinted at it before, but planning a wedding is a big undertaking, including a pet can be fun but it can also be stressful for everyone involved. Make sure your venue does allow pets and that your pet is only there for a short time.

If that seems like it might be a little bit too much when you think about the actual logistics, we highly recommend using a likeness of your beloved buddy, rather than having them attend in person. Or, since it’s the world we live in now, have them join a Zoom portion of the wedding so everyone can say hello.
