Bridal columnist Carina Monteith shares some cute ways to get your furry friend involved in your big day.


I’ve never been an animal lover. In fact, I was that person who would call ahead and make you remove your dog from the house so that I could visit in peace! And then my husband brought home Tara, a four-year-old St Bernard. One look at her big sad eyes and she was forever more to be known as ‘My Tara’, my bestie, my girl, my everything.  Had we not already been married 7 years at the time the hubster brought her home then she would have also been my flower girl! No joke!

The only reason that I’d want to renew my vows is so that My Tara could be there in all her slobbery glory! I am loving the new trend for getting our furry friends involved in all aspects of the big day, from The Proposal and Engagement shoots right down to Ring Bearer and Flower girls.

If you are fur-allergic like I was pre-Tara then you will think this is nuts, if you are fur-mad like I am then here is all the inspo you need to have your little furry friend involved in your big day!
