Dallas Wedding Planning

You might want your favorite furry friend at your wedding day to celebrate with you on your special day. Whether it’s the puppy you and your soon-to-be spouse got on your one year anniversary or it’s the donkey at your grandparent’s farm that has meant so much to you since you basically grew up with it, there is so much significance to having your pet there. There are definitely pros and cons of having animals at your wedding, here are a few:


  • The biggest pros are that you can have your furry best friend there on your special day! Your dog, cat, or any other animal, loves you so much and you love it, so of course you want it to really be a part of the family in this special way.
  • Secondly, you could have your animals not only be there, but be in the wedding. Maybe you want your dog to be the ring bearer, or your flower girls to ride down the aisle on your family’s horse? It would make such a personal, fun touch to your wedding that everyone would keep talking about.
  • Lastly, your wedding pictures can include your fur baby! You’ll be able to see your whole family in your pictures on your special day, and that is priceless.


    As good as the pros are, there are cons.

  • Firstly, there might be an extra pet deposit at your venue.
  • You will also have to think about how your animal will be taken care of and fed during the reception, or even when it is not in the ceremony. You can always hire someone to take care of your pet during these times, but the extra cost is something to take into consideration.
  • Lastly, you will have to be prepared for anything unexpected that your animal will do! Even if your dog is the best dog, he/she probably has not been around so many people before. Be ready for any surprise behavior.

Wedding Planning Expertise – Is a Destination Wedding Right for You?

Wedding Planning Expertise

Destination weddings may have started as a trend, but just keep getting bigger and better as more couples ditch the traditional hometown wedding, for a new, exciting adventure. There are obviously some really fun pros for planning a destination wedding, for example, you’ll basically already be on your honeymoon—no waiting in an airport the day after your wedding, but let’s find out if a destination wedding might be for you.

1. Are you overall unconventional in your ways and always looking for a new way to be different? A destination wedding might be right for you! Between the wedding pictures and stories that you’ll be able to tell, it will be sure to be a unique experience that not many will have.

2. Do you have a large family that you have always dreamed of watching you get married or is your guest list pretty small, consisting of close family and friends? This is a huge determining factor in considering a destination wedding. If you want your whole family to be at your wedding, a destination wedding might not be the most realistic for grandparents or family with younger kids, so realistic expectations are important.

3. Are you the one who never wants the party to end? With a destination wedding, if you chose to, you could keep the celebration going with your family and friends while you’re all still out of state or overseas, still making sure to have some alone time with your new spouse. Of course, even with a destination wedding, you can just have a one day celebration and then spend the rest of your time one-on-one if you’d like, but with most destinations weddings that’s not the case.
