7 lovely ways to involve your dog in your wedding


Written by Katie Byrne

Got your heart set on including your dog in your wedding day? Nope, you're not barking mad - and yes, it can be done!

 

#1 First of all: make sure they're suitably attired for the occasion

Whether it's a Yorkie in a tiny tux or a Labrador adorned with a wreath of flowers - there are endless ways to transform your dog from pet to guest of honour. Just make sure they're comfortable - if they're sneezing or scratching or struggling to walk comfortably, remove their accessories ASAP.

#7 Include them in your custom-made cake-topper

Oh, and of course...

Make sure you enlist the help of a (reliable) member of your bridal party to keep a close eye on your dog. You don't want him or her to eat something it shouldn't, or wander off and get lost.
