Would You Have Your Pet Attend Your Wedding?

Dog Wedding

After singer Jennifer Hudson announced that her dogs were going to be part of her wedding plans, couples around the world rushed out to give their pups special invites to their exchanges of vows. From having your beagle as a ring bearer to letting your greyhound walk you down the aisle, there are no shortage of ways to let your dog be part of your wedding plans. But many pet owners still think that nuptials are no place for a pooch, and instead choose to let them stay home and admire the occasion from afar. So what do you think? Is it fun or too much to have your dog be part of your wedding ceremony?

If you are thinking of having your dog be part of your ceremony, we want you to be prepared. Here are a few things you need to think about when it comes to pet planning on your wedding day:

1.Elect a friend (not a bridesmaid or groomsmen) to be in charge of the dog during the ceremony and to transport him wherever he needs to go.

2.Schedule a trip to the groomer before you walk him down the aisle.

3.If you plan on heading to your honeymoon after the ceremony and have to drop off your dog at a kennel while you’re away, check with them for drop off times to be sure that you’re covered.

4.Bring treats. Lots of treats. These yummy snacks will help you wrangle your pooch during photos, the ceremony, or anytime he seems to be loosing control. Want even more security over your dog’s behavior? Enroll in obedience classes before the big day.
