After all, your dogs are part of the family

Your wedding day will go down as one of the best days of your life! So it makes sense that you would want to celebrate the special occasion with family and friends…

…including your four-legged ones!

More and more couples are choosing to include furry friends in their wedding festivities. Some dress them up (think doggy tuxes!) and give them special duties, like walking young ring bearers down the aisle, while others are happy for their dogs to just stand alongside them as they say ‘I do’.

Besides upping the cute factor, having your dog at your wedding can also benefit your emotional state. Pets are known to help reduce anxiety – and if you’re feeling those pre-wedding jitters – a snuggle or two with your fur-ever friend should calm you right down!
