Whether for fun or to celebrate the true love between two canines, hosting a dog wedding can be more work than most realize. While there may not be an exchanging of rings, there are a plethora of other activities you can do. Dog weddings can be a fun and charming way to bring friends and family together, if only to enjoy one another’s company.
Set a Tone
When sending out emails, be sure to set a tone for the event. Will this dog wedding be a black tie affair, with the bride and groom dressed to the nines, or will this be a casual backyard wedding? Let your guests know how they, and their own dogs, should dress.
Plan for Food
Food will depend on the formality of your event. If you’re having lots of canine guests, be sure to accommodate them as well. There are a plethora of websites online that include baked treats for pups, ranging from cupcakes to ice cream.
As for the people, again, follow the tone of the event. A casual backyard affair could include lemonade, hot dogs and potato salad. A more formal event could call for finger foods, fancy coffees and so forth.
Though the dogs should be dressed as well, it’s also important to dress up the event space. Whether it’s a few simple garlands or a more extravagant event with flowers and other decor, it is still important to follow the tone of the event.
Dealing with Comments
While your dog’s wedding event may seem perfectly normal to you and to many others, there may still be those who make rude comments. It is important to let these comments go. Whatever their reasoning may be, it is unnecessary for them to make these comments, and it is not worth your time to respond. Laugh it off or simply disregard, and you’ll be happier for it.
Having a basic idea of what the event will entail can help you plan it more seamlessly. Of course, this is a wedding for dogs, so try not to get too carried or away or take things too seriously. You will only stress yourself out! The important thing is to enjoy the event, and enjoy your dogs.
