Well other than Rrabbetsgirl it seems the general consensus is that incorporating pets into your wedding is a good idea. Not that I was looking for approval, I just wanted to see all of the other creative ways bees are incorporating their furry loved ones into their special days. Btw love the ideas ladies, very cute:)
Not that it really matters but I have looked into everything to make sure it will not be a problem. My location is pet-friendly, they actually state they will do whatever they can to help make pets a part of our special day, my dog is also extremely well trained, has never had an accident, goes out to do her business at designated times of the day, we will also have a friend on dog duty (no pun intended;) who will ensure she is ok, has water, food, etc.
My dog will also only be there for the ceremony and a few pictures afterwards she will be put in one of the suites in the Guest House on the venue property, the same House the girls and I, and my dog, will be getting ready before the ceremony and where my FH and I will spend our wedding night (there are 3 separate suites in this House), she will have everything she needs in there and will most likely just sleep since it will be passed her bedtime;) Our friend will also be there to check-in on her from time to time to see if she needs anything. After the reception my dad will take his Grand-puppy (he came up with that name on his own, lol) home with him for the night, as he does whenever we are out of town and she loves it.
No one who has ever met her who is allergic to dogs has ever had a reaction to her, even my next door neighbor who is severely allergic to all dogs except mine, so since I will know all of the people at my wedding, and my dog will have already met 99% of them I think it’s safe to say they and she will be fine.
Of course by some small chance if something does go wrong, or she does something totally out of character; she barks, pees, poops, or whatever I really don’t care, I would honestly just laugh and so would everyone else. I grew up with 3 dogs and have already lost 2 over the years (old age), this dog means so much to me that the small risks of having her there don’t matter when the benefits far outweigh them. Besides most weddings in my family have had a dog participate in some way or another and if something unpredictable does happen we all just laugh and smile, we are all animal lovers and are pretty laid-back as it is.
