Nowadays, it is considered a delight to see a dog be part of the wedding ceremony or reception. This is particularly true if the groom or bride considers the pet as part of the family. But because it is still not a common occurrence, there still needs to be a number of preparation steps to be done. If you are considering this, you will need to prepare with these things:
Prepare Your Pet
Before you decide whether or not your pet should take part in your wedding, you have to carefully assess his capability. You are the owner of your pet and you know him best. See to it that your pet will not feel agitated or stressed during the wedding so that you do not cause any problems with his temper.
One important thing you need to do is to check if the venue for the ceremony and reception allow pets. There are certain wedding venues wherein pets are not allowed to be part of. If you are unable to secure pre-required permission, your pet might not be able to enter the venue.
Inform Your Guests
There might be someone in your guest list who is either afraid or allergic to dogs. Make sure you inform them right away that your pet will be part of the ceremony or reception. This way, they can prepare their medication if they are allergic to dogs.
You have to prepare if your pet will not be permitted to join the ceremony or the reception. Instead of this, you can have him join your engagement photos. But if you would like to have your pet with you during your wedding, necessary changes will have to take place.
