Are you looking for a great way to include your furry friend in your big day? Well, you’re in luck because we have some fun and creative ideas on how to do just that!

Quick tip: Always check with your venue regarding any pet policies they may have in place.

Engagement Pictures

If you’re wedding is taking place in a church or more formal setting that doesn’t allow for pets, include them in your engagement pictures. These photos make a sweet, personal Save the Date or cute addition to your guestbook at the reception.

Getting Ready

Do you love your pet but don’t envision them attending the wedding? Having them present while you get ready is a wonderful way to include them in the photos and makes a sweet memento of the day. These will also make for great additions to your wedding album.

Wedding Photos

Do you consider your pet part of the family but want a pet free ceremony? If so, have a friend or relative bring them to the spot of your bridal party pictures and then back home once you’ve captured some awesome shots.
