Bow Wow Wow: Dress-Up Your Pet Day Inspiration


Break out your mini bowties and sparkling bandanas. Sunday is National Dress Up Your Pet Day! We’re celebrating by highlighting all of our favorite ways to style pets in weddings or engagement sessions. After all, on that day, man’s best friend becomes man’s best dog—or dog of honor—so they better dress the part!

When it comes to your engagement session, you’ll want to capture a snapshot of your little family, which naturally includes your favorite family member (your fiance doesn’t count). Keep the setting in mind as you style your pet’s look. Going for a late-fall outdoor shoot? Accessorize them with a cozy plaid scarf.

Take it a step further when including your pet in your big day. Who doesn’t love a dressed up dog? And you don’t have to go over the top. Just a little something special fancies them up for the occasion. Bow ties are a handsome option for dapper little guys.

Or, if you want to keep things easy and fuss-free, bandanas are a good go-to option. They’re available in every color and material imaginable. And you can get really creative by having one personalized to proudly display a title or fun message. Ring Barker, perhaps? Your wedding photographer will have so much fun capturing all the awww’s.

Adorn the little ladies in your life with flower collars and wreaths that complement your color scheme and choice of flowers. Bows in the ears are an adorable bonus accessory.

Finally, think wardrobe. What’s cuter than seeing dogs dressed in sweet little people-style clothes? Jerseys, tees and sweater vests are casual but cool. Your pet will definitely look doggone adorable.
