Dog-friendly weddings: Fur better or fur worse

Dog-friendly weddings are on the rise
Dog-friendly weddings are on the rise

An increasing number of couples are requesting to involve their prized pooches in their special day. TTG shines a light on the craze with examples of bookable product.

As a nation of dog lovers, it’s no surprise a growing number of couples are choosing to have their dog at their wedding day.

 

Booking agent PetsPyjamas, which specialises in dog-friendly weddings and honeymoons, has seen a 10% increase in enquiries in the past year.

 

The agent recently launched a number of new services, including a curated collection of hound-friendly honeymoon getaways in Europe and the UK.

 

“We’re experiencing first-hand the growing trend of people wanting to involve Fido in their big day and beyond,” says PetsPyjamas co-founder Karen Hanton.

If you are booking a dog-friendly wedding, PetsPyjamas stresses the importance of placing the pet’s wellbeing front of mind – it might be more suitable for them to attend the ceremony and then be taken home or to a dog-friendly hotel room before the party to be looked after, for example.

 

Dog charity Dog’s Trust has more advice on planning a dog-friendly wedding on its website (dogstrust.org.uk).


Also ensure clients know that even if the wedding venue is dog-friendly, they’ll need permission from the registry office for them to be present.


Here we take a look at some of the mutt-friendly wedding venues to recommend to your clients.
