We are thinking about having our pets at the wedding. They are our kids but also been a big part of our relationship. They are well trained and would love to enjoy the night as they always enjoy dinner parties at our home. Did you have your pets at the wedding? Just ceremony or the reception too? Did you do something special for them like flowers or bows?

- Wedding: June 2013 - Country Club
We let my mom’s dog come to the rehearsal dinner (it was outdoors at the park) but otherwise we did not have our pets at the wedding. We didn’t feel like it was the place for animals.

I love weddings with adorable, well behaved dogs!! 🙂 We dont have dogs, but even if we did, they probably would have stayed at home though. Do you have any inspiration pics?

I wish I had some pro-photos of her back but I’m still waiting. I had my little girl there. She’s really old so we just had my husbands Mom carry her. She sat through the wedding & we did a few pictures with her, then my cousin drove her home. We lived ony 15 minutes from our venue so that worked out well. My Mom made her neck attire ;).

If my dog were more well behaved and not so hyper, I would have loved her to have been a flower dog at my wedding! But I could just see my neice, who was our Flower Girl, being dragged down the aisle by my dog who only operates on one speed. She spent the day at my parents’ house, as they were able to run home and let her out between ceremony and reception.

@sheepandbear: here are the inspirations we have. The girl would have the flower wreath, maybe orchids or white berries and our two boys would get ties or bow ties.
@Twyla_Smith: we would have them walk down by themselves since our new venue is indoors. probably put dog beds in the wedding colors by the altar for them to chill out on all night

We were lucky in that our hotel allowed pets for a small fee(shout out to Hard Rock Hotel Chicago!) Our doggie wore a bowtie collar that I bought on Amazon and attended our ceremony. He is very well behaved and did not walk down the aisle but was there for most of the day i.e. pictures getting ready, ceremony, etc.
I would not bring a dog with behavior issues. SIL brought her beagle and he has separation anxiety. Someone wrote them a note and shoved it under their door saying they were cruel because she cried the WHOLE time they were gone!! I would have to agree with the note writer. And how rude of her to leave a crying dog for the other guests to hear.

If our dog was allowed at our venue, I would have her as the flower girl and sitting/lying next to me up front. Oh well.

@HisMoon: we were thinking dog beds up near the altar for the pups, we also have bridal suite that we want to make into their retreat area with their kennels, food and toys so they can relax when they want.
@baletrina: Ours do well and I know our female will be attached to my grandma since she loves her and the boy probably will be hamming it up with the ladies.

We did! Our dog was our flower girl, so we tied roses to her collar and as she tried to shake them off the petals fell along the aisle so it worked out well 🙂 To be fair though we got married in a park and then put her in our hotel room for the reception (even though the hotel was okay with her being in the reception). I was really happy she was a part of our day since she is our baby!

Our ceremony is going to be outside not far from our home, so we’re hiring our regular dog walker to pick our dogs up from our house, walk them over, man them during the ceremony and then walk them home after we get some pictures. It wouldn’t be a family day without the kids!! Our maltese boy is getting a tie and our longhaired doxie is getting a custom-made dress from etsy (she’s too weird shaped to wear anything from petco or the like!)
