Adorable and Stylish Ways to Include Your Dog in Your Wedding

He’s always there when you need him. He’s the only one who can make you smile after a bad day. He’s always up for an evening of Netflix and cuddling on the sofa. We aren’t talking about your fiancé. The number one man in your life is your dog.

Now, more than ever, brides are including their beloved furry friend in their wedding. They are family, after all! Dogs are dressing for the occasion, hanging out with the bridesmaids and groomsmen, wagging their tail down the aisle, and partying with guests well into the night.

There is no denying that these four-legged companions add a welcome dose of cuteness and humor to the ceremony and reception. Are you thinking about having your dog be a part of your big day? Here are some adorable and stylish ideas from our real BB weddings for inspiration.

A late summer rooftop wedding at Studio 450 celebrated the last days of the season with festive and vibrant colors. Everyone was in good spirits, including this adorable puppy, clad in a custom wreath featuring hot pink gerbera daisies, yellow craspedia, and mimosa.



We are not exactly sure about the pet policy at The St. Regis, but who could deny this precious face entry to the premises? Here, the little pooch pauses for a photo op with mom and dad’s wedding invitation. Hit your guests with a serious overdose of cuteness by having the flower girl escort your dog down the aisle with a satin ribbon leash.

This dog is totally pulling off the romantic and dreamy wedding look, perfect for an early summer wedding at New Leaf Restaurant in Upper Manhattan’s Fort Tryon Park. Adorning its neck is a lovely collar fashioned from pink Lydia spray roses.



French bulldogs pack a lot of personality in their pint-sized bodies. Put one in a tux and top hat, and it will be the most handsome gentleman in the room. Just ask Thomas, who looked incredibly dapper walking the aisle at his mom and dad’s Trump SoHo wedding. He has a mug the camera loves, so his parents made sure to have him in their wedding photos as well.
