While some couples choose to bring their dogs to the wedding as guests and even include them in the ceremony, others choose to incorporate their dogs in other ways. Whichever route you go, know that there are so many ways to highlight your four-legged friend on the big day!
Dog Friendly Wedding Venues
If you want your dog to be there with you on your wedding day, it is important to choose a dog friendly wedding venue! An outdoor venue is going to be your best bet, but some indoor venues also allow pets as well! Other venues will mention on their website if dogs are welcome, or might have a FAQ that mentions their pet policy.
You’ve decided to bring your dog to the wedding ceremony, we can’t wait! Here’s a fun idea on how to include your dog. Give them a job! Decide on a role that best fits their obedience level and personality. Some puppy jobs include pup of honor, ringbearer, or even a flower dog. With this in mind, it’s best to designate a guest or family member to help out. However, if that isn’t an option, there are actual dog babysitters! They will supervise your pup for the duration of the day. This includes picking up your little companion, get them groomed and dressed for the big day, driving them to and from the ceremony and reception, and even back home!

Here comes the real tearjerker, you can have your dog as a witness to sign your marriage license! Yes, you heard that right your dog can be the OFFICIAL wedding witness. All your dog needs to do is dip their paw in an ink pad and drop that paw print onto your marriage certificate
Your dog can also have a fancy outfit for the wedding day too!
This can be as elaborate as a doggie wedding dress or a tuxedo. If your pet isn’t into outfits, you can also get them a cute collar maybe one with a bowtie or a veil. Want to get creative? Ask your florist about adding some flowers to their collar that will match your bouquet!
Who doesn’t love a good drink? Having a signature cocktail named after your pet is seriously the cutest thing ever! Not only that, coming up with a signature drink that best fits your dog is such a fun process. For example, you can really start to think of their personalities traits that we love so much about them. Are they strong like a martini, or fun like a margarita? Additionally, you can even have custom made napkins with your dog on it pairs perfectly with a drink, and it will be the talk of cocktail hour!
There are endless cleverly named signature drinks inspired by puppies. For instance, “The Archie” that was an old fashion and “The Max” that was an espresso martini. One of our favorite drinks was inspired by a super cute dog named Bingo. His signature drink was “The Bing-jito” for a mojito! If a drink really isn’t your thing, you can also name the bar area after your dog, such as “Stanley’s Tavern” or “Sadie’s Bar.”
