Happy TOT guys! Throwback to our pawrent’s engagement photoshoot. How do you like our matchy bandanas? 👅 Dad picked these out as it is the closest representation to his family’s tartan coming from an Irish heritage. #matchymatchy

9. Don’t forget the glam collar.

[WEISS] Diese Farbe haben wir standardmäßig gar nicht im Shop – weil sie natürlich anfälliger ist, als z. B. Schwarz (Memo an mich: Ach nee😅🤦‍♀️). Hin und wieder dürfen wir diese Farbe aber trotzdem verarbeiten – und müssen ehrlich zugeben: wir lieben sie ein bisschen 🙈 Oder sieht diese Kombi mit "Roségold" nicht einfach toll aus? 😇🤗🥰👰💒 www.gassiglamour.de // #gassiglamour #halsband #hundehalsband #lederleine #leine #lederhalsband #flechthalsband #weiss #roségold #rosé #hundeaccessoires #dackel #chihuahua #malteser #pinscher #mops #labrador #französischebulldogge #havaneser #dogaccessories #weddingdogs #weddingoutfit #hochzeit #hochzeitsoutfit #whitedog #dogoargentino #sheltie #dalmatiner #vizsla #weimaraner

If you’re going to have the most special of days, you need to include your best pal. Whether your dog is up for participating in the ceremony or is better suited for photo ops and stand-ins, these images should get your creativity flowing.

How will you include your doggo in your wedding?
