Pet friendly vendors work together as a team, with your wedding pet care service, to ensure you have a fabulous day. If including your furbaby in your wedding is as essential as most, hiring a non-pet friendly vendor may lead to disappointment.
Planning process smoother and more enjoyable for everyone involved. If you already know that your dog will be part of your big day no matter what, having dog-friendly vendors creates great teamwork with better communication, coordination, and less stress. Overall, it creates much better results.
Pet-friendly wedding vendors are service providers with experience working with pets and are willing to accommodate couples who want to include their pets in their weddings. These vendors include venues, photographers, videographers, and wedding planners. Of course, a vendor’s experience with pets at weddings helps tremendously. Although, at the end of the day, as long as they like animals, your wedding pet care service will handle the rest.
Dogs similar to children need a little extra planning. We at Furever Us takes care of all the dog-related plans but we are part of the bigger team and if a planner is not pet friendly it can keep create uneasiness amongst others, they might not put a lot of importance towards the flower dog and might make sure that the furbaby is away from everyone else- which in turn can make them nervous. Pet friendly planners are great because they will understand the importance of having a furbaby and the unbelievable love that you feel for them. A dog loving planner will also be able to understand the logistics involved with having a pet at the wedding and work with the wedding pet sitter to make everything go smoother.
Hiring a pet-friendly photographer/videographer is crucial if you plan on including your dog at your wedding for the following several reasons:
They will listen to the couple’s needs and desires and remember all the photos they wanted. They will take more than asked, knowing they are a very important family member.
Everything said above goes for both the photographer and videographer. Hiring a pet-friendly cinematographers can help ensure that your pet is a happy and integral part of your special day and that you have beautiful and memorable photos to cherish for the rest of your life.
Having non-pet friendly vendors could delay the timeline. As a wedding pet care service, we ensure we are near the couple at all times in case the pawfect opportunity presents itself to include your dog in your wedding photos. That way, the dog of honor can be easily included, without wasting valuable time. Unfortunately, and sometimes, the event planner does not like dogs. In this case, we have been asked to wait somewhere quite far from the couple. This may result in missed opportunities or extra time spent catching up on photos of the bride and groom with their dog.
People who understand and love dogs know that they are not always predictable. Having vendors that go with the flow and understand this dramatically impacts the couple. They often are much less stressed and find fun opportunities to include them that feel natural but are also great candid shots. Oftentimes, couples want their dogs to come down the aisle. Pet-friendly photographers know where to stand and how to position themselves pawfectly so they are not in the dog’s way, while still being able to catch the big moment. They adapt to each situation organically and without stress.
Many dogs are weary of cameras. When a pet-friendly photographer or videographer says hi to the doggies first, get some doggie kisses, and then try to get some shots- it creates a great collaboration. Remember, dogs are great at reading energy. If your wedding vendor does not like or care for dogs, your dog may be more anxious and less cooperative. At the end of the day, the most impawtant people of the day are the bride and groom, and of course, the furbaby.
Everyone can extend the truth and say they love dogs, but here are some suggestions to help with this process:
In conclusion, when you want to include your dog in your wedding, hiring pet-friendly wedding vendors is crucial for a successful wedding. It can make the wedding planning process smoother and more enjoyable for everyone involved.
