Dog Wedding Style Ideas
I love dogs, and I love couples having their dog at their wedding. Because I am a dog-friendly wedding photographer, I recently organised a styled wedding shoot with a lot of cute dogs in some great wedding outfits! It was a crazy, fun, hectic day and I loved every minute of it!
We were lucky enough to have some gorgeous pups model some amazing dog wedding accessories from small businesses across the UK. I put together this collection of wedding attire ideas for those of you who want to make your dogs a part of your day. Rather than giving them outfits that will be too restrictive or hot on the day, one of these custom collars or leads would be just as good and you can get them to match the rest of your wedding party.
So here it is, a style guide for dogs at weddings - all your dapper dachshunds, regal beagles, chic chihuahuas, posh pugs, classy cockapoos, jazzy jack russells and snazzy schnauzers!
Dog wedding tuxedos and flower collars.
Inspired to create her first dog tuxedo for her own wedding, Jenny now makes customised tuxedo harnesses and flower collars to match your wedding party. Harnesses can come with a ring-bearer attachment if you want your pup to carry the wedding rings during the ceremony. How cute can you get?!
Bow-tie wedding collars.
Velvet collars, tartan bow ties, grooming products and relaxing candles - Ollie and Co has everything your dog could need for your big day! You can get three different colours of Harris Tweed or Scottish tartan bow ties, and the velvet collars come in a range of different gorgeous shades to match your wedding palatte. Having worked as both a wedding planner and pet sitter, Kirsty is uniquely placed to help you find the perfect collar for your best dog. Very excitingly, this year Ollie and Co is part of Friends of Joules and can be found on their online marketplace!
Dog wedding bandanas.
Helen and Chris Giddings are a husband and wife team based in Oxfordshire with their dogs Molly the beagle and Baxter the terrier who inspire their range of products.
As owners of two dogs, Helen and Chris know how much they mean to you and how special it is to include them in the big moments in your life. Their dog accessories were developed with this in mind and were created to be both stylish and practical.
Dog wedding flower collars.
Working within weddings and events was where Jodie first noticed a growing trend for pets but particularly dogs at weddings. Pups and pooches as ring bearers, best man or even maid of honour! As a huge dog lover she thought this was a great area to explore and after several trial runs and some product testing by her own furry family, Cupid Collars was born.
Cupid Collars are handmade using high quality silk and foam flowers with luxury satin ribbons. All collars have discreet velcro fastenings that attach to your dog’s current collar, the collar underneath hidden by beautiful blooms, ribbon and a show stopping bow.
Canines and Confetti
Dog wedding tuxedo harnesses.
Helen started her first company, The Very Distinguished Pug Company in 2014 when she designed the first ever suit harness. Fast forward a few years and they have evolved into high quality, sophisticated bespoke harnesses. Canines and Confetti was born in 2016 to cater for the growing demand for dog wedding suits.
Wendy's suits have featured in Vogue magazine, Bride, Confetti and Dogs Today and she's currently working on outifts for Netflix!
Dog wedding bow ties and harnesses.
Dog couture with as much character as your four legged friends!
Inspired by her love of her Frenchie LuLu, Sonya began making her own harnesses; funky individual designs she hadn't been able to find anywhere else. Growleys UK now stocks a range of harnesses, leads and collars - including this amazing sequin bow tie collar which I just couldn't resist!
Dog wedding bows and bow ties.
Meme started making accessories for her own dog in 2016 and enjoyed it so much she decided to allow others to enjoy her pieces too. She produces limited editions of each design, including these beautiful silk bows and bow ties. Her Etsy shop also has a wonderful range of bow ties, bandanas and jackets for any occasions.
Dog wedding accessories
The Pet Pooch Boutique is run by Samantha Robinson, and was started when her little black Toy Poodle Beau Beau came into her life. After becoming quite the dog-accessory connoisseur, always trying to find that perfect collar or jacket, the idea for the Pet Pooch Boutique came along. Samantha now sells a large range of both in-house handmade and well-known branded products at competitive prices. Everything is personally tested by Beau Beau and the newest addition to the PPB family, Izzy, an 18-week-old Toy Poodle rescue.
How amazing would these feather bandanas look at a festival themed wedding??
Coats, leads and collars for dogs with style.
The lovely Wendy makes these incredible dog coats and accessories, including leads, collars and bow ties, from Glasgow. Inspired by her own 2 terriers, Callie and Hamish, she makes her pieces for the dapper dog. The amazing Harris Tweed coats (as modelled by Freddie below) come with a range of colour blocks including green, mustard and hot pink! And if you want to match your dog after your wedding day, you can get a cosy fleece-lined button-up snood in matching colours.
Dog wedding harnesses.
Mutts & Mares is a small family business based in Essex. They take pride in making handmade unique dog collars and accessories, and each design is tested by their Springer Spaniel before making the grade!
Starting with Paracord collars of varying colours they now make a range of fabric collars, leads, bandanas, bows and these gorgeous wedding harnesses.
