How to Include Your Dog in the Wedding Ceremony


Rover has been with you through thick and thin, so it's only natural that you include him in the festivities.

Things You'll Need

  • Dog Costumes
  • Designer Dog Collars
  • Dog Leashes
  • Satin Ring Pillows
  • Choose an appropriate role for the dog depending on behavior and temperament. An energetic dog might need to be on a leash held by an usher or ring bearer, while a relaxed, older dog can be free to lounge during the ceremony.

  • Wash your pup right before the ceremony to keep people with allergies from having a reaction to dander.

  • Dress the dog up with a fancy collar, ribbon or dog "tux."

  • Have someone walk the dog just before the ceremony to allow him to relieve himself.

  • Have the dog bring up the rings on a satin pillow tied to his collar or - if he is really well trained - in his mouth.

  • Appoint an eager nephew or niece to be the dog-watcher throughout the event, making sure Rover doesn't eat anyone's food or leave any surprises on the lawn.

Tips & Warnings

  • Remember that your adorable pet has the potential to frighten some of your guests - especially children. Be considerate of people who are fearful of dogs.
  • Avoid trying to give dog food or water to keep him happy during the ceremony.
  • Unless you are absolutely certain that your dog can be counted on to behave during the wedding, it's better to get married without Rover.
