Hi all, I'm hoping to have my dog at my wedding (am having exclusive use of a hotel) and I'm a little concerned about how she will cope in the evening when the party is in full flow. Am just wondering if any other brides included their pets & if so what you did to occupy them for the evening? Thanks!
Oo my dogs are going to be at my wedding and never thought about this x
Our pups will be with us in the day but going have them taken back to our chalet and looked after in the evening x
There are some dog boarding places that do dog chaperones so they bring them for the ceremony and photos and then take them away and look after them for the night or have a doggy safe room for them to get away from the loud music and during the meal as they won’t be allowed in the eating area.
I'd make sure he has somewhere quiet to go in the evening to avoid him getting stressed and being fed the evening buffet by boozy guests!
Our dog stayed for the whole wedding, he had his bed and toys in a quite corner but enjoyed hanging out in the party being fussed by all our guests and grabbing bits of the buffet that ended up in the floor
Ours are going to a chaperone who will walk them and then bring them to the venue for the photos, then she's home boarding then overnight. My venue is dog friendly but my partners nieces dont like dogs an they'd get over excited with so many people x
Use a chaperone service for peace of mind. Also worth noting that all the excitement and noise can get overwhelming for furbabies so worth having them just for a short time during photos.
This will be the second wedding my dog has attended she's pretty much a pro . Can't get her off the dance floor tbh !
Its not rely fair to.put your dog through something like the reception. It needs a place of quiet where it can rest away from noise and guests. plus it will need to toiletries in the day
Have the dog in the wedding photos though then let it stay with someone .
I guess your hotel is dog friendly? Can the staff at the hotel offer anything? To take the dog for a walk and then put them to bed or something? I’ve seen some companies you can hire also who will come and pick up your dog and they also offer services like grooming them ready for the day.
If it’s in a dog friendly hotel could they go back to your room and be checked on at intervals?
My dog is coming along :) we have a dog friendly venue. She is most likely to sit on someone’s lap most of the night (mostly mine) then I will pop her to bed. I’m not a big party person so I will be focusing on her x
