Pets at weddings have people divided, but if you’re reading this you’re probably on team pet, so you wouldn’t dream of getting married without your four-legged friend by your side. Lucky for you and your pooch, we have all the inspiration you need! These are nine of the best looking pets at weddings that we’ve ever seen, so you’re sure to get your dog looking dapper with one of these ideas!
This little chap has bags of style in a smart black collar and lead ensemble. Unobtrusive, this outfit looks great and still feels great for your pet, too.
Pets at weddings will be wearing a collar anyway, so why not accessorise it? You don’t need us to tell you how adorable this lemon and white striped bowtie looks.
In fact, we love bowties so much that we’ve even got a handy how-to so you can make one for your mutt of honour, too!
Relaxed, country weddings might make a bowtie feel a little too formal. We love this floral bandana as a themed alternative! You’ll also love these doggy flower crowns from Hurley’s Wedding Day Dogs...
These polka dot red outfits are a fun take on the formal. Pets at weddings can be dressed in the couple’s chosen colour to look great in photos (think matched to the bridesmaid dresses, groom’s tie or even the bride’s statement shoes!).
Once you’ve got your pet all dressed up, make sure your photographer is on hand to snap the perfect photo!
For a more subtle style, simply match the colour of your dog’s lead to the colour of your tie like this pair who rocked in orange.
It can be easy to forget that pets at weddings are, well, still pets. Sometimes their natural look is the best, comfiest and safest option – so if you think your pup might be tempted to chew his costume, get caught while racing about or just won’t enjoy what he’s wearing, don’t make him. Here’s proof that a quick brush is all a dog needs to look gorgeous!
Don’t forget to check with your venue and let your guests know if you’re planning on having pets at your big day. Nominate a willing bridesmaid or hire a pet sitter to take care of your pooch while you’re busy (you will be!). Above all, relax and enjoy your day surrounded by everyone you love, including your pets!
