The Dog Days

Who let the dogs out?!

Well, okay no one did but happy Dog Days of Summer month!

In the spirit of this month, here are 5 creative ways to incorporate your pet into your special day:

The Proposal

Have your dog help you from the very start of the journey. A popular way can be to have your pet wear a sign that reads, “Will you marry my…?”


Who doesn’t swoon over cute pictures of animals? Include your pet in your engagement or wedding photos and it’ll for sure be a hit. You can re-use these photos as table numbers during the reception.

Announcing the Bride

If your dog is well trained, why not have it be a part of the ceremony? Your dog can walk down the aisle with a cute sign that reads, “Here comes the Bride!”

Ring Bearer

If your dog is small, have your ring bearer carry your cute pup down the aisle.


If you’re all about your furry friend, go ahead and incorporate them into the decorations! The dessert table can include “pup-cakes”, the photo booth can offer doggy-ear props, and bone-shaped mints can serve as party favors!
