1). Ring Bearer

Why not let your dog carry your rings down the aisle? Before your assign your dog this role, make sure you trust your pet with this important task. Nobody wants to spend their wedding day chasing after a runaway dog carrying £1000 wedding rings!

Most of all, remember that weddings can be loud, chaotic and stressful. Make sure that your pets are feeling comfortable and have somewhere to retreat if they start feeling scared! Perhaps put a bridesmaid in charge of making sure your pets are feeling happy, or hire a professional for the day? Make sure your pets are having a great time, just like you and the other human guests!
