Most of my friends and family love dogs just about as much as I do, and with so many of us going to weddings over the summer, I thought I’d share a book that recently came into the office that features our furry best friends as important participants in that special day. Dogs and weddings... a recipe for disaster? Maybe not, read on:
Wedding Dogs: A Celebration of Holy Muttrimony (by Katie Preston Toepfer and Sam Stall) captures man’s best friend at 70 weddings—dogs as the best man, maid of honor, ring bearer, or another member of the wedding party! Decked out in little doggy tuxedos or sporting a wreath of roses around their necks, these pooches share in the wedding couple’s big day. Each photograph is accompanied by a brief essay telling the dog’s (and the couple’s) story. A perfect wedding, bridal shower, or groom’s gift, Wedding Dogs shares the joy of the moment when dogs join in the celebration of their owners’ most special day.
If you or a friend are considering including Fido in your wedding plans, you’ll want to start planning ahead, so that both you and poochie have a successful day. You'll find some indispensible advice in Something Borrowed, Something Chewed, a Modern Dog article that outlines seven rules for a successful dog-inclusive wedding.
