When it comes to romance, nothing quite says “love is in the air” like a wedding. Standing up in front of your family and friends to declare your lifelong commitment to each other is a highlight in the cute love story you share with your soulmate, and the memories you make together on this day will last forever.


An important part of planning the wedding of your dreams is mapping out all the romantic things to do and making sure everyone you love can be there to celebrate with you. For many of us, this includes our four-legged family members.
