A Bride’s Best Friend: Pups in Weddings

Can you imagine a world where you could bring your dog everywhere with you? We can’t know for certain, but we’d willing to wager that crime rates would lower, there’d be triple the number of weddings every year, and everyone would have clear skin and a smile on their face at all times. {We can dream, right?}

Until this world exists though, we’re all just going to have to keep spending as much time with our furry companions as we can. So why not sneak your pup into your wedding, too?! Yes they might steal the show, if we’re being honest, but if you can get past that then the added cuteness factor to your wedding is totally unparalleled.

{Now, we’re not saying we are unique in our love for dogs of all shapes and sizes. We know that, universally, dogs are the most wonderful creatures. But when it comes to dogs in wedding parties, well… We’re truly their #1 biggest fans. Don’t challenge us on that one.}

The recent resurgence of this puppy-in-the-wedding-party trend has us feeling all of the feels, so we picked out our three favorite ways that local photographers and wedding planners have been incorporating their engaged couples’ dogs into their wedding celebration. So scroll on to check them out, and let your little fur-ball know it’s time to get out their Sunday best!

Engagement photos! Your dog is an integral part of your family, we’re sure, so it’s only fair that they’re included in this glorious familial transition. As long as you have a photographer whose not afraid of a little fur, your best friend can be a part of one of the earliest steps of wedding planning. {Like Maura Jane Photography!}

Last but not least, the ceremony! Surely by now you’ve seen one of the many excruciatingly adorable photos and videos of dogs being teeny tiny ring bearers — we’ve definitely watched our fair share. But what if your pup isn’t exactly aisle-trained? Not a problem. It’s no longer necessary to have an assigned “role” for your dog, especially when there are florists like Charlotte’s Flowers to make a flower crown or lei. Then they match the color scheme of your wedding, and no one could possibly question their presence.
