We have 2 little pugs (ages 4 and 2) and they are, well, basically our children. They are both excitable and I would love them to somehow be involved in the big day, but I think we are going to end up with a very nice hotel as the venue (and not quite sure how they would take ‘hey, do you mind if our dogs are part of the outside ceremony?’). Thoughts on how to incorporate them into the big day without upsetting anybody?

I feel like I remember seeing someone use different photos of their dog for the table numbers. Each table had a card with a different photo of the dog and somewhere on the photo was the table number.
I thought that was a really cute idea and def. a good way to incorporate your dog into the fesitvities without having them actually be there!

I second the table number idea.
Or you could use Mrs. Cream Puffs idea as inspiration- she named the signature cocktails after her and her FIs pets!
Bar Menus and Signature Cocktails
And if you REALLY love her art work- she’s in business!

I’d check with the venue to see what their dog policy is first.
I’ve seen things on the blogs about people who take pictures of their dogs with signs that say “Thank You” and those are their thank you cards. I’ve also seen pictures with dogs by numbers for table numbers.

I was pretty bummed that our venue doesn’t allow pets. I think we will make our pets and some family and friend’s pets the table names. And of course most of our photos in our slideshow have our monsters in them too.

You could use their pictures as table numbers, or name signature cocktails after them. or use their pictures on thank you notes. Personally, I’m not that into having dogs at weddings (and I have a dog that I adore, he’s my baby!). You never know if one of your guests is really allergic, or really scared of dogs. Or, for that matter, your dog might not do so well with 100 people staring at him!

I would leave doggie home. One more task you need to worry about. You need to focus on yourselves that day, not worrying about your lovey. I love the ideas of doggies on the table #’s. Maybe you could get a photo of them together in different poses, in different outfits [our pugs are in a parade every year and one year we had them dressed in bride/groom outfits] and use those as table #ls. I think that’s cute! The wedding is about you….NOT your doggies.
