You’ve got the perfect dress. Your bridesmaids and groomsmen have all said yes. The venue is confirmed. The flowers are what you’ve always wanted, you’ve agreed on music, and you’re marrying the person of your dreams. There’s just one thing missing.
How will you get your pets to the ceremony?
You’ve bought cute little bride or groom outfits or accessories for them, and although you haven’t quite decided how they’ll get down the aisle, you know they’re a part of your family and should be there on your big day. After all, what could be cuter than having your dogs at your wedding along with the world’s cutest flower girls and ring bearers?
The traditional wedding march with the bride walking down the aisle is still a staple at many weddings, but what’s new at weddings is the inclusion of pets in the ceremony.
In a time when many weddings end up blending human families together, pets are also a part of that family blending.
Celebrities have been doing it—you can see pictures of the pets included in the last few years in the weddings of Adam Sandler, Gene Simmons, Miranda Lambert, Ellen DeGeneres, Jennifer Aniston and others—and other people have been catching on to the idea too. Earlier this year, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s Puli Sheepdog, Beast, walked bride Priscilla Chan down the aisle at the couple’s surprise wedding.
Having your dogs as part of your wedding celebration can be great fun for everyone—just don’t let them drink the champagne.
