For many people a dog is an extension of their family, so it seems natural for some to include their dog in family events. Weddings are no exception to this and it is becoming more popular to have your dog at your wedding. Sometimes the dog even takes an active roll in the day by being the ring bearer.
A few things need to be considered when deciding to take your dog to a wedding (be it your own wedding or a family wedding), firstly you’ll need to make sure your dog will be welcome at the wedding venue, then think about who will look after your dog on the day while you have your hands full. There are a few practical things to think about too, muddy dog paws and white wedding dresses are not a good mix! There are lots of food smells at a wedding too, not to mention cake! If you think it might all end up in tears you could always bring along a life size cardboard cut out of your dog instead.
