Dogs are known as “man’s best friend,” so it’s only natural to want your best friend at your wedding. If you can’t envision saying “I do” without your furry BFF, don’t worry – you don’t have to.

There are a variety of ways to involve your dog in your wedding (even if they are still working on the whole “sit” and “stay” thing). Before you start planning, consider the type, size, and personality of your dog. Weddings are hectic enough without animals; choose a level of involvement that will allow your dog to be at ease so everyone (dogs included) can enjoy themselves. Assign “dog duties” to someone that has a relationship with the pup, and don’t forget a big bag of treats just in case.
