There are many ways you can include your puppy in your wedding. You can simply dress him or her up to attend your ceremony.

You can keep your pup in their formal wear at the reception where they can help clean up at the end of the night.

Make your pooch a member of your wedding party. They can act as a flower girl, announcing to their human that the bride is coming down the aisle. They can also be a ring bearer, proudly sitting next to his humans until they need to exchange the rings.

You don’t have to limit your dog to the wedding day. Consider including the pup in pivotal moments. If you haven’t proposed yet, there are many dogs that have helped their humans hand the ring over.¬†There have even been dogs that used their cuteness to encourage a “yes!”

They can also help make your engagement session a lot more fun. For a casual, outdoor shoot, your dog can help bring out the love and personality you and your fiance have together.

Not including your adorable pup in your wedding festivities would be like making your child stay home instead of seeing their parents married. Your dog loves you and will love all the attention they will get on your special day.
