It’s time to move over mums and dads, grannies and grandpas. There is a new contender for “most stoked wedding guest” in town. Over the last ten years, we’ve seen a significant increase in pet attendance. A doggo cruising the aisle used to be a rare treat for us but now, we’re pleased to report, that almost every second wedding has a v. happy four-legged friend wagging around the party, lapping up pats and stealing snacks. We’re keenly awaiting the day that a wedding without a pet is a rarity.

So, in celebration of the above, we have decided to share with you all a bunch of our fave li’l gals and guys who have made their way into our inbox (including a cat and a sheep!). Whilst we hope this is a lovely break in the wedding planning process, you’ll also be able to gather plenty of inspo for pet-friendly ‘fits. (Top tip: If you’re worried about your pet’s care on the day, be sure to snag a pet sitter like our mates at Fuzzy Buddy).

We recommend sitting back with your bevvie of choice, taking a few mins out to enjoy this post before diving right back in with ceremony styling ideas here, our fave bouquets here and even more pets here. And if you’re still on the hunt for a rad photographer, you can scroll right down to the bottom of this post for the talented folk behind these here snaps. But first, enjoy…
