Are you spending these first few weeks of summer planning your wedding? Congratulations! We here at Intermountain Pet Hospital couldn't be happier for you. While you're hashing out the details of venues, catering, and a honeymoon, you might also be wondering about how to include your best friend in your special day. No, we're not talking about your intended—your other best friend, your pet.

There are countless ways you can include your dog or cat in your wedding and the special days and weeks leading up to it. Here are our top picks for adding some actual fuzz to your warm fuzzies.

1. Pop the Question

If you're ready to propose to your significant other, why not get Fido in on the fun? It's easy to make custom dog and cat tags to hang on collars, and engraving the classic request "Will you marry me?" on one of those is sure to get an enthusiastic response.

2. Smile for the Camera

You'll probably be sending out engagement photos, save the dates, and/or invitations in the coming weeks, and what better way to get some smiles than with your favorite slobbery grin? Include your dog or cat in your engagement photos for a personalized twist.

3. Ceremony Show-Stopper

Wouldn't Buster look dashing in a dog tuxedo? Enlist your pet's help for your ceremony by putting them in the line-up as ring bearer, flower girl, or attendant. You're sure to get some "awws" when your ring security wags her tail down the aisle. Consider hiring a pet sitter to stay with your dog throughout the ceremony and reception to keep him or her happy, hydrated, and cared for.

Don't forget to include your pet's health in your planning this summer! Bring your dog or cat in anytime for an exam, or contact us with any questions.
