Let’s face it, dogs and weddings aren’t exactly a good mix, but don’t tell that to trained dog sitters and trainers! Some people feel that their dogs are like their children and they partake in everything. They go out to the grocery store, out to the park and ball games, so why not the wedding day? The problem some people run across is not knowing what the dog will be like in front of crowds on a day when the attention and focus is not on the dog but on the bride and groom.
With the assistance of a pet sitting company, having your beloved pet at the ceremony can be accomplished. Some pet sitting companies will arrive two hours before the ceremony to calm the dog down and dress him or her in their tuxedo or wedding dress. The pet sitting company will coordinate the itinerary of the day with the wedding planner so that they know when people are coming in, what music will be played and where people will be positioned.
Another important detail that you want to think about is before you book your photographer, make certain that they are pet friendly and will be okay with the extra photos of you and your beloved pet(s). Dogs can sense if you are not a dog lover.
The pet sitter will usually walk the pet down the aisle so that they can participate in the ceremony with their owners. Once the ceremony is done, they will stay for the photos with the family. At that point when it is time to go to the reception, the pet sitter will either sit for your pet at the hotel( if your reception is at the hotel and you have booked a pet friendly room) or take the dog(s) back home where they will get some well deserved pats on the head for being on their best behavior before turning in for the night after a long day.
Sometimes the dogs will only be in the photos because the venue may not allow pets on property. It is important to let your wedding planner know beforehand if this is something that you wish to incorporate in your wedding.
Check out Rhianna and Robert, they had their two doggies for the wedding pictures after the wedding ceremony, because they did not allow pets in the church.
Linda and Chris had their dog at their wedding …
If you can’t fit the dogs in the wedding day program, you can incorporate them in the engagement session, just bring someone with you to take care of the dogs while the two of you are taking your pictures after you are done with the dogs.
