Hello readers. And, happy Monday to you all!
Last week, I told you about my latest obsession. Today: I want to share with you my love for dogs. And, especially having your pet in your wedding!
A hot topic right now seems to be dogs in weddings, leashing them in & including them by simply walking down the aisle with the stunning bride, or carrying the ring. Obviously, I am a little too young to be getting married but our fabulous Creative Director at Colonial House of Flowers, Mrs. Christy, had her dog in her wedding. And, it’s just a wonderful trend.
Having the dog wear a beautiful flower arrangement on their collar to coordinate with the bouquets, color scheme and aesthetic of the wedding is a great way to add something special & meaningful to the ritual. Incorporating something that means so much to the bride and the groom into the day is romantic!
I was wondering what it would be like to have my sweet dog in my wedding so I brought her into the shop and dressed her up in some flowers!
Isn’t she adorable? Paws-ibly the prettiest dog model on the planet?
Ryder and I had such an amazing time in the shop dressing her up! In fact, she wasn’t too sure which arrangement she liked best!
Check out this image I found of Ms. Christy:
And, here are some other great images I pinned on our shop board:
Dogs are a natural addition to the wedding party because pets are an important part of a couple’s relationship. Couples include them in the party list just as they would include anybody else they really love. The other perks to dogs in weddings: they always get the dress code right & they look adorable in pictures. 🙂
If you do decide to let your dog in on your great day, then please treat them after the ceremony because they deserve it!
Though including our furbabies in a wedding certainly takes extra care, consideration, and flexibility the extra effort is so worth it. I hope I (and, Ryder, too!) have inspired you to include your dog in your wedding. Afterall, the pictures will be adorable, and we can be with all the ones that we love!
Until Next Week,
P.S. It’s Monday
If you have have pictures of you and your dog in your wedding, they must be adorable. Please share!
