Shop Story

If your pet will be an important part of your wedding day, of course they’ll need their own special wedding attire. Not that your favorite fluffy pal needs much help looking cute! But if you’re planning to include the sweetest “person” in your life (aside from your spouse, of course) in your Big Day, then we have some stylish suggestions. Below, find an adorable roundup of the most precious pet outfits for a wedding, from tuxedos for dogs to wedding dresses for cats (or small dogs). Whether you’re looking for a simple message bandana for your pet to sport down the aisle, or a full-on, ear-to-tail flower girl outfit, you’ve trotted to the right place. Get ready to go into “aww” overload as you scroll through these fun and functional, highly-rated pet outfits for pups, kitties, and a few that are purrfect (we couldn’t resist!) for any other non-human, yet highly-esteemed wedding guest on your list.

 

 

How to Select Pet Attire for a Wedding

 

Tips:

The role your pet will play in the wedding will inform your choice in pet attire, whether as part of a proposal, engagement party or the big event itself. A best cat needs a little tux, obviously. A canine who has the honor of walking the bride down the aisle would (bow) wow in a matching wedding gown. Be sure to look at the sizes each outfit will fit. Then just be sure to consider logistics. Will your dog need a leash so he doesn’t dive into the wedding cake when no one is looking? If so, consider if a leash will work with the outfit. One final thought: Be sure whatever wedding outfit you dress your fur-covered bestie in, he or she can take care of their, um, business, without too much fuss.

 

 

What to Consider When Shopping for Pet Attire for a Wedding

 

Cost:

Here’s the good news about pet wedding outfits: They aren’t terribly expensive. Not that you wouldn’t readily spend tons of money on your fur baby. But every item on this roundup is $30 or less, and most cost under $20. Some wedding accessories are less than $10.

 

 

Color:

We mainly stuck with traditional wedding colors like white for tail-wagging gals and black for the grrr-oom. You’ll see a few splashes of color if that’s what you want, and with a few of the choices, you can even customize the colors to match your wedding motif.

 

 

Style:

From traditional to boho, these pet wedding outfits cover all the bases for both cats and dogs of various breeds, and of course, the various roles on your wedding day. So you’ll see everything from an elegant pet wedding dress to a burlap bandana, tuxedo and top hat. Yes, all for pets.
