Floral Purse & Floral Dog CollarYou see them in the pages of People magazine and on the covers of O, The Oprah Magazine, and Martha Stewart Weddings, as well as on TheKnot.com. I am talking about the ultimate wedding accessory – Dogs.

We all love our four-legged family members, and I see many brides incorporating their beloved pets into their wedding ceremonies.

I recently designed flowers for a photo session, including several pieces for the model that stole the show — Scarlett — the basset hound.

From “ring bearers” to “arm adornments,” brides are making the most of their pups. There are many wedding fashion accessories on the market for dogs these days, but the most popular is flowers.

A wedding dog graces the cover of Tara Guerard’s book, Southern Weddings. What a simple, iconic image of the connection between the bride and her best friend. I love how they coordinate with each other.

A wedding is all about details. Whether a collar of fragrant flowers or a leash covered in greenery, your florist can design a signature floral look for your dog. Give your four-legged family member a little flower adornment. Just imagine the photo opportunities.

How have pets been included in the weddings you’ve seen?
