Why leave Fido at home, when there are so many fur-friendly hotels available that will welcome your four-legged friends. It pulls on the heartstrings of every pet owner, when the time comes to wave goodbye to your little fur baby, and go on vacation without them. No matter how nice their doggy retreat is, or […]
Imagine, waking up and opening your eyes that morning, on the most anticipated day you’ve had marked in your calendar since the engagement. Even though you weren’t able to sleep much through the excitement, you feel refreshed and ready. You lay on your side to see your second most prized companion (besides your almost-spouse) is […]
You are finally married and now it’s time for your long-awaited honeymoon. As you’re basking in the joys of planning your honeymoon, you may be asking yourself “What about our fur-baby?”. If you are like many of the couples that have included their pups in their picture-pawfect wedding, you may want to include your dog […]
You want to include your dog in the wedding but don’t know where to start. Here are some creative ideas that may inspire you.
You can incorporate your fur babies into an epic engagement in several ways. One way is to have them be part of the big moment. Ideas can be: tying a ring to their collar or training them to bring you a box. Or let them carry a little blackboard with a cute proposal message. Think about something precious and memorable and, of course, something that will seal the deal.
Once you have said ‘yes,’ the fun part of wedding planning begins. If you are a dog lover like us, you might want to consider having your dog/s or cat there for the engagement pictures you will use on the wedding website. Or have them pose for your save-the-date cards. There is nothing cuter than your dog inviting people to come to the big day- it will be a wedding your friends and family cannot miss.
When it comes to your big day, there are so many ways you can include your furbabies. Most of the time your photographer will join you and take pictures of you while you are getting your makeup on or getting dressed in your wedding outfit. This is a great opportunity to take some pictures with those furchildren that might be a little too hyper for the general crowd and for your dress. You can even add those pets (dogs, cats, birds, rabbits etc…) that might not be a good fit for the ceremony. We have seen some adorable photos.
First looks have become a staple in the modern wedding, slowly turning what was once unheard of into a tradition. Many couples prefer seeing each other beforehand and having a memorable intimate moment with their significant other. This often emotional moment has created some beautiful and candid photographers. In addition, it’s excellent for those that have pre-wedding jitters.
Having a first look with your dog can be a great way to capture some fun candids and some great footage. It also allows your furbaby to sniff you or maybe only one of you before making their big entrance down the aisle. After all, isn’t this day what special moments are about?
If your wedding has a reception, consider having your dog greet guests at the entrance. Ensure someone responsible is available to supervise and manage interactions.
Train your dog to carry the wedding rings down the aisle. Attach the rings securely to a decorative pillow or a small pouch tied around their collar.
Dress your dog in a floral collar or harness and have them walk down the aisle, scattering flower petals or holding a flower arrangement in their mouth.
Having your dog run down the aisle to bring the rings can be an adorable and memorable moment in your wedding. Remember to start training in advance to ensure that they are comfortable and confident. Make sure they are not runners and practice. Having a wedding dog handler there to help for the big moment is essential. In case your Fido runs after a squirrel the handler will be the one ready to run and catch the squirrel chaser. Most important let the photo and video team know so they are ready to capture the moment of having your dog run down the aisle at your wedding. Having a pet friendly vendor team is essential to make everything run smoothly.
Remember, it’s essential to prioritize your dog’s safety and well-being throughout the process. If your dog becomes overly stressed or uncomfortable during training or the actual event, it may be best to give them another important role.
Canine Attendant: If your dog is well-behaved and comfortable around people, they can act as an honorary attendant, accompanying a member of the bridal party or walking alongside you during the ceremony.
Having your dog walk or run down the aisle will always be a hit. It’s not your pup’s fault that they are so adorable. With so many different ways, the options are endless. It all depends on their size, temperament, training, and preference. No matter if you them walk, run, drive or even skip the consequences are always smiles and laughter.
Many couples exchange thoughtful gifts with each other on their wedding day. As a token of appreciation and affection. Who doesn’t love something meaningful and sweet? Here is an idea! Does your significant other have a special bond with their dog but for some reason, Fido is not included in the wedding? Consider surprising your fiancé with something they will never forget-surprise them by having their dog come for pictures or a ceremony. It is one of the cutest things we have seen.
Including your dog in the wedding is a personal decision; as we always reiterate, it depends on your dog too. Whatever the case, one of the things that always happens is wedding photos with your best furriend. Of course, a couple of pictures is a must, but also consider group photos. You can take these snapshots before or after the ceremony. The perk is that you will not have difficulty choosing which group shots you will pick for your wedding album. And you will have fun getting a lot of attention. Unfortunately, the day passes by so quickly and what you will have left are memories and photos. These photos will be worth all their money in gold.
Including the dog completes the family portrait on your wedding day. Just as you and your partner are coming together as a couple, the presence of your dog represents the larger family unit that includes your beloved pets. Including your furbaby in your wedding photos adds a unique and personal touch. It sets your wedding album apart and makes it truly representative of your family and the special relationships you have with them. There are so many fun photo poses that you can do with your dog on your wedding day.
Did you know that in some states you do not need a witness to sign your marriage license. The good news is that in those states your dog or cat could sing the license. Get their paws ready as they have a very important job to do.
Last but not least, is including your dog in the first dance. We know this may sound a little crazy but hear me out. It can be one of the most unforgettable moments for your guests. We have seen couples starting their dance alone and adding their pupper at the last minute.
It is always a surprise and a great start to a pawsome party! After all, weddings are about fun and laughter and everything ever after, no?
Incorporating your dog in your dog can be a great decision. But, you need the right helping hand. We at Furever Us have helped many couples and their fur babies have a blissful day or evening. We make sure those a little shy have as much fun as those more extroverted and those energetic ones their energy out before going down the aisle.
We are one of the gears that provide support on your big day. A pet is often one of the most important family members in a couple’s life. Knowing your dog has their doggie butler and being taken care of like a VID (Very Important Dog) can reduce stress. So why would you hire someone that is not an expert in dog behavior? A person that does not know the importance of timing when it comes to the wedding day. Not someone who may be involved in the wedding and want to enjoy it with you rather than be with your fur baby. Leave that job up to us. We do what we do because we love it. The best present is when our couples tell us what a great idea it was to hire us and have even admitted to us; that we are the best vendor (shhh, don’t tell other vendors though, we believe we are all equally important).
