Your dog is basically your child, we get it. So it wouldn’t feel right having them miss out on your special day. While it is difficult to include your dog into your destination wedding, it is not impossible. Here are a few ways to incorporate your furry friend into the celebrations.
Bring them along for the celebration
If the venue allows it, buy that pooch a plane ticket and off you go! Here are 9 Puerto Rico beach wedding venues that are pet-friendly. This is the best-case scenario, but it may not always be an option. Whether the venue or hotel does not allow pets, or if you don’t want to deal with the hassle of bringing your pet with you, there are other options to incorporate your dog into the fun.

Include your dog in the wedding ceremony
The best way to get your dog involved is to dress them up for the occasion, and there are multiple options to do this throughout the wedding process. A great option is to include them in your ceremony as a ring bearer or an honorary guest!
Get your pups in on pictures pre-wedding
If your furry friend cannot make it to the ceremony in person, make sure to bring pictures to include in your ceremony! Get them into your engagement pictures with sweet signs and bandanas or even use them in the proposal. It is quite common to feature dogs in wedding announcements or save-the-dates as well.
Dog-inspired wedding decor
The possibilities (and the puns) are endless when it comes to dog-inspired wedding decor. Start with a Pinterest board and go from there. You can get creative with special cocktails named after your pets, cake toppers, games, and more. One special way to include them in the decorations is by sharing your love story through photos, the pup(s) deserve a feature!
Now getting your cat to the wedding is a different story…
