Weddings gone to the dogs?

Posted on: June 2, 2009

pets in weddingsDid you know there’s a growing trend of couples using pets in their weddings? In fact, here are three examples from real brides who found their dogs on, the largest online database of adoptable pets and the No. 1 pet-related site:  

  • Jessica Sempek did not need an adorable niece to steal the attention as flower girl.  Her two adopted dogs, Emmie and Lady Bug (in photo), took center stage as they walked down the aisle showered in rose petals.
    Kaycee English and her new husband love their pooch so much they took him on their honeymoon! Not very many ring bearers get to enjoy the first few days of marital bliss, but Bowser is obviously an exception.
    Stephanie Baker and her then fiancé fell in love with a blind dog on when they first got engaged. Carrying on tradition, Stephanie and her dog, Tucker, posed together on her wedding day in the same position her mother did with her dog 35 years ago.

If you are interested in having your furry friend be a part of your wedding day, here are some tips from

  • Make sure your ceremony and reception locations allow pets before finalizing your plans.
  • Take photos with your dog before the wedding or on a different day.  Animals can sometimes be like children in photo sessions – they don’t always have the best attention spans.
  • Do you have an “easily-excitable” pooch? Does your dog love table scraps? Many pets may not handle large crowds and intense situations well. Know your pet before making the decision to include him or her in your special day … OR of course, you can consider tailoring your wedding plans to fit your pet’s needs!
