Well, it’s almost that time again. Wedding season is upon us. If you are getting married, CONGRATS! I figured that I should write a blogpost about how to incorporate your dog into your wedding as we’ve been going through the process ourselves. Us (Tibby’s parents) are getting married later this year and barring any runaway bride/groom situation, this is how we are incorporating Tibby into our wedding.
I hope this article will be helpful to those of you who are newly engaged, thinking of getting married, or not even close to getting married, but, who gives a FLUFF, let’s see some pictures of Tibby and other dogs in flower collars and shot by an ACTUAL photographer (and not that hack job stuff her mom is always posting).
In Your Wedding Invitations
Create a wedding invite that incorporates either a picture of your dog or (if i can recommend something) a cartoon version! We paid someone on Etsy to draw this for us, and we printed ourselves through Vistaprint. This way is not only cheaper, it’s a lot cuter too. Our guests seem to really love it (Yes – I know Tibby doesn’t have a tail)
Invite Your Dog To Your Engagement Shoot
Make a day of it with your dog and invite them to your engagement shoot.
Pro Tips: Do NOT bring your dog if its going to rain (see picture below – not pictured is the pounds of sand she brought into our car and house after). Also, bring something that will keep them focused. I brought dog treats to our engagement shoot so that she would be looking into the camera more.
We’re actually redoing our engagement shoot because there was torrential downpour (lovely). I’ll add new pictures once we get it back!
Choose A Dog Friendly Venue
If you are a loud and proud dog parent, like us, it is unthinkable to leave your fur baby at home. That’s why we looked into a venue that was dog friendly (which, in Canada FYI, is very limited). Most places where there is an outdoors area for the ceremony are a good bet. If you are not having your fur baby at your reception, make sure you have someone responsible take them home or to a safe location.
Put A Prop With Them On It In The Photobooth
This tip comes from Chad’s mom (@chad_thecorgi on Instagram! Follow em!) who did this at their wedding (CONGRATS AGAIN you guys!). They made these ultra-cute photo props for their wedding. I died when I saw them. I will be doing this amazing idea for my wedding as well 🙂 Thanks again to Chad’s mama Tracey for letting me use these photos and idea
