The Furriest Guest

Enough about friends and family on your guest list - what about inviting your most beloved and furriest of friends?

For those couples planning to have your furry friend involved in your wedding in some capacity, make sure above all else to consider the comfort of your pet. If the venue is a long drive from your home, or if new locations and unexpected faces will put your pet in an anxious state, and you know your pet will be more comfortable at home, do what is best for your pet.

If you are more flexible and don't mind if your four legged friend isn't part of the ceremony, here's an idea from the Wedding Photojournalist Association: have your pet hang around the bridal party and the groom's party as they get ready for the day. However, be sure that your pet can be trusted with all the mesh/lace and expensive gowns/dresses. Fido chewing up the dress an hour before the ceremony could be a big disaster!

Pets can add a measure of spontaneity and fun to the photographs, giving the photographs a degree of personality to the wedding and keeping it from being a run-of-the-mill type event. So make sure the nails are groomed, the teeth are sparkly white, and the coat is well groomed - your furry friend just might steal the show!
