your best friend to always be by your side
1. The most important thing to consider is how comfortable your dog will feel. It may mean a lot to you to have them there, but consider your dog's personality. If they adapt well to new places and don't mind large crowds of people then they will be just fine. But if your dog has a lot of anxiety and will be frightened, it may be best to think of just doing family pictures some other time.
2. What role will your dog have? Will they just be a guest of honor or are the going to walk down the aisle carrying the rings? If you are giving your dog a starring role make sure your pet is well-behaved because it can turn into a wild goose-chase very quickly! They may also get spooked depending on the venue location (i.e if your in the mountains and there is other wildlife) or with the large group of people watching them trot away.
3. Talk to your venue. Depending on where you are, some venues will not allow pets of any kind (or possibly only allow service dogs). Talk to the managers and see what the rules & regulations are.
4. Designate a handler. Before, during and after there ceremony have a family member or close friend be in charge of your furry companion. You and your loved one will be whisked from here to there and back again so adding a dog to that plate will be too much. This way you know your pup is safe, happy, and not getting into any trouble.
5. Have a ride home for your dog. Some venues will allow dogs for the ceremony but they will not be allowed in the reception hall. So make arrangements in advanced for someone to take your dog home or for someone to pick them up.
6. Talk to your photographer beforehand! You definitely want to get some awesome shots of your dog on the big day so make sure they are aware to set a little time aside for a little dog friendly photoshoot! (And maybe bring a bag of treats to help them look the camera as well).

Sweetly Paired's philosophy puts you, the couple getting married, first.
Our philosophy is that our clients are not JUST the host of the event, but they actually feel like guests the day of. This level of service puts ahead of our competitors, because the taken-care-of feeling that our clients end the evening with is such a great experience! We make sure you and your family are not working the day of the event... not even to move decor, handle gifts and personal items at the end of the night, or make sure food and beverage service is flawless for the guests. We work with you throughout the planning process to make decisions that impact guest (and host!) experience the day/week/weekend of the wedding. We've outlined the steps below for ensuring the wedding day is as smooth as possible, and stress-free for the couple and their family, friends, and guests.
