Your wedding day is one of the most memorable days of your life, and it’s natural to want to share it with your loved ones – including your furry best friend.
Bringing your dog to your wedding in the UK is a growing trend, and it’s not hard to see why. Not only will your dog add a touch of charm and personality to your special day, but they are also a beloved member of your family, and it wouldn’t feel complete without them.
As a live wedding artist, I have encountered many (well behaved) dogs at weddings. I have even met a doggy daycare owner who specialises in wedding dog care. What an amazing job! She attends with the dogs to the drinks reception after wedding when the photos are being taken. The dogs in this instance were then taken away for the res5 of the day.
Some things to consider when bringing your dog to a wedding
Before you decide to bring your dog to your wedding, there are a few things to consider. First, make sure your venue is dog-friendly and that your guests are comfortable around dogs. You should also check with your wedding planner or venue coordinator to ensure that there are no restrictions or rules regarding pets.
It’s also important to make sure that your dog is well-trained and able to handle the chaos and excitement of a wedding. If your dog is not used to being around large crowds or loud noises, it may be best to leave them at home. You can have a close relative whom your dog is used to (like your brother) be responsible for your dog for the day.
If you do decide to bring your dog, make sure they have a designated handler to keep them calm and happy throughout the day.
What can my dog do at my wedding?
When it comes to your dog’s role in your wedding, there are plenty of options. Some couples choose to have their dog serve as the ring bearer or flower girl, while others prefer to have them walk down the aisle with the bride or groom. Whatever role you choose, make sure it’s something that your dog is comfortable with and trained for.
Finally, don’t forget to plan for your dog’s comfort and wellbeing throughout the day. Make sure they have plenty of water, food, and a comfortable place to rest. You should also have someone designated to take care of your dog’s needs, such as taking them for a walk or letting them outside.
In conclusion, bringing your dog to your wedding day in the UK can be a wonderful experience for both you and your furry friend. However, it’s important to consider the logistics and make sure that your dog is comfortable and well-behaved throughout the day. With careful planning and preparation, your dog can play a special role in your wedding and make your day even more memorable.
