Hi all, it’s Lauren from I Love Love Events back again, this time with some amazing ideas for the animal lovers out there. We’ve all seen the shots of the bride and groom all dressed up with their pups at their feet and it is out-of-this-world adorable, but – how do you include your pets if your venue doesn’t allow dogs? Or if your pet is anything like my lovable, furry, maniac, what if Fido isn’t well behaved enough to get an invitation to the big day? While it would be such a great memory to have your pet present for your “I Dos,” if that just isn’t possible, there are lots of other ways to pay tribute to your fur children. Here are a few of my favorite, super creative ideas.
