Here’s one that will make you think: on our invites if the guests have a dog, we put the doggie on there as well. I see dogs as the same as children, if you can bring a kid to a wedding why not a dog. Are your guests bringing children or furry children?
I confess this wouldn't be my choice but each to their own.
Hi I love animals but as I have allergies no pets but we have two children attending :)
I love this idea but I would just be worried that the dogs wouldn't get a long and it would be a nightmare. So we will just be having our dog there
No i wouldnt as i know my soon to be niece is scared of dogs.. & Not every1 has a well behaved dog, would not want them fighting or trying to mate etc..
Would they be at the reception to. Doesnt make sense to me.
Personally I think that sounds horrendous. A lot of people don’t like, are allergic to or even scared of dogs.
Unless you’re having a very small wedding, where you’re sure everyone loves dogs then I’d forget it.
The dogs will be shagging, biting each other, humping legs. Sounds very entertaining
Some dogs are better behaved than kids!
I'm having neither!
I honestly couldn't imagine anything worse! I'm terrified of dogs, and if someone I knew put this on an invite, I wouldn't go!
Equally, I have a young daughter and totally understand it when people say they don't want kids at their wedding.
I love dogs, and a few guests are dog owners, but I wouldn't for a second invite a dog to my wedding xx
No kids, no dogs! I'm allergic and terrified of dogs so 8 couldn't imagine anything less appealing than going to a party with dogs in, I would have to go home and miss the wedding!
We are having kids as our close friends and family have little ones. I want my little pooch to come along to the wedding in the afternoon for a stretch of her legs. We will see if I get my way!
Our own dog will be attending, but we aren't including anybody else's. Dog politics can be very complicated and you never know how well they will get along! I think the point that others have made about allergies and phobias is well made. We've been sure to let all our suppliers know that we have a dog who will be at the event. Plus the fact that the dogs need to go somewhere while everybody is eating, and you can't just stick them all in a room together and leave them! Venue may also have limitations on numbers of dogs.
Our dogs are present at our wedding but we have measures in place so they don't pester guests
I would probably say dogs over children 😂 wish had thought of this!
I wouldn’t attend, purely I hate animals x
I love that!
Children yes cause I have a young niece and nephew and my close friends and relatives have children. Dogs no if I had my dog with us and my in laws 2 dogs were there 2 I’d b laughing @ points I shouldn’t b cz there all nuts when they get together!! Especially the 2 older ones
Does the venue allow dogs, it may be a hygiene issue. Not everyone likes dogs and there is also the issue of allergies, I worked with a lad who was so allergic to my dog that he couldn't even come into my house let alone be in the same room as my dog before his eyes swelled up and he couldn't breathe. I am a dog lover (got 2 of my own) but I would hate the idea of tripping over dogs all day and what happens if they start to fight with each other, I am sure you wouldn't want someone having a trip to A&E after trying to separate fighting dogs.
No dogs, I wouldn’t want my guests having to leave the party for there dog to do there business. I love animals and have even got my own but think this is a no on the biggest day of my life.
Eek. You don’t know how well those dogs will get on! If a lot of people brought dogs I can imagine a lot of barking and even fights. Sounds risky tbh. Bit to mention people who are allergic to or scared if dogs or the fact that one owner or other would need to constantly supervise (even the best behaved dogs can be a challenge to eat out with trust me I know).
Love this idea! X
I absolutely love dogs and have a labrador, but it doesn’t sound too wise to me unless you know everyone likes dogs and isn’t allergic, also taking them out to do their business, feeding them, will they get on with all the others, muddy paws? It just seems like a dog day care rather than a wedding and will everyone be looking at and worrying about their dogs rather than your big day?
This is what I have done, and in response to allergies or phobias - I wouldn’t invite anyone with these, as everyone knows my dog is my baby and there’s no way she wouldn’t be with me all day. So they shouldn’t expect an invited. Im pretty ruthless and blunt! I’m only having 50 people we have small families and my friends are all dogs! (Thats my job I run a doggie Daycare) all the invited dogs know each other very well so I have no worries :) I would personally rather take my dog out for poop than dance to the YMCA! I regularly take Bella out to eat with us and she much better behaved than most children!
Well, it really depends on the venue and whether they're allowed! I love dogs but not everyone does, plus some people have allergies...also knowing our family dog he would rather be at home than sitting around at a wedding...if he's in an unfamiliar place and is left to sit there he barks constantly and that would drive everyone mad!
Also it wouldn’t be my wedding without the dogs there they are part of the family
Is your venue allowing it? Because most places only allow assistance animals
Tony Stephenson Marie Poyton why didn't we think of this?
I love this idea! Iv been engaged for 6 years and one thing putting me off is a want a small registry office wedding or elope and neither of which my furry baby can be part of so just havent done it. Hes num 1 on the guest list . I understand what people mean about the dogs not getting on, but im sure the owners will know if they should bring them or not.
We chose our venue because it is fully dog friendly - that was the selling point for us
Hardly any kids and certainly no dogs! I’m a dog lover but the venue would not allow it!
not my kind of day but each to their own 😊
If i had a dog, my venue allows it, so i would bring it. But wouldn't trust other peoples dogs to come.
I'd rather have the dogs to be honest. They're usually much better behaved than children
Guests won't be-able to bring dogs to my wedding. It's at the zoo! But there's plenty other animals there!!
I’d worry about guests asking about their snake/rat/parrot/micro pig etc. etc. etc. Where does it end? And more so, why does it end there?
