You’ve got the wedding gown. The bridesmaid’s dresses are on order. The groom and the groomsmen are all set. What about the most important member of the wedding party?
Your pet, of course! When your pet is going to be in your wedding, we want them looking their best.
But how should they dress for the occasion?
Should you go all out with formal wedding attire for your pet? Or maybe just add a touch of wedding flair.

Is your pet comfortable wearing clothes?
This is not the time to just buy something and wait until the day of the wedding to put your pet in their wedding outfit. You will seriously have enough to deal with on your wedding day. You don’t want the added stress of dealing with a freaked out pet.
Even if they are used to wearing clothes, it’s a good idea to get them used to wearing their special outfit before the big day.
Start slowly. Put it on. Give them a treat. Take it off. Slowly increase the time they have the outfit on until they are comfortable wearing it and not paying much attention to having it on.
How do you pick the right wedding outfit for your pet?
Of course, you want to have your pet in an outfit that fits your style. But what else should you think about when choosing the perfect pet wedding outfit?
- Is there any part of the outfit that could irritate your pet while they wear it?
- Could it affect their movement?
- Is there any part of the outfit that could get caught on something as they move around?
- Are there any pieces that your pet could chew on or swallow?
- Can you get the proper fit? Too tight an outfit could irritate your pet. Too loose and it could make it hard for your pet to move around.
What wedding attire can your pet wear if they don’t like wearing clothes?
You’ve weighed all the options and decided your pet wouldn’t like wearing a wedding outfit.
But that doesn’t mean they have to be left out.
There are ways to add wedding touches for your pet on your special day with collar or leash decorations.
