You might want to bring your dog to your elopement and wonder if it’s the best move.
We absolutely love when you bring your pup along!
Dogs bring a sense of lighthearted fun to your day and there are so many locations in Asheville that are dog-friendly!
There may be some logistical pieces to consider (more on that below), but here are our Top 7 Reasons Why Bringing Your Dog to your Elopement is a great idea!
Even though elopements are generally lower stress than a big wedding, there are still the nerves of getting married that may come up.
If you bring your furry little baby along for the day, it may help settle your jitters and anxiety because you get to pet them, play with them, and giggle with them.
It provides a sense of normalcy to an otherwise out-of-the-ordinary day as you adventure into nature and marriage.
When you bring your dog to your elopement, you’re bringing along a sense of comfort and joy into an adventurous day.
Dogs create more movement & fun for photographers to capture as you laugh, pet, and play with your pup. Just having your dog nearby gives you something “to do” or focus on outside of the camera clicking. That alone puts you at ease!
Having your doggie bestie with you in your photo sessions helps eliminate the “what do I do with my hands” problem and provides some casualness to the otherwise romantic vibe. Just imagine precious photos of you hugging your dog in your wedding attire hung up around your home!
Pups do all types of random, unpredictable cute things on elopements, like wince along with you when you cry during vows or take a lick of your cake when you’re not looking!
All of this cuteness will be documented in photos and video to capture your fur baby’s spirit!
You don’t want to miss out on the adorable ways to dress your dog up for the wedding day!
For couples who are driving to their nature elopement, it only makes sense to bring the pup along as you will marry in an open, outdoor space where they fit in.
No matter how much you and your pup get out on walks in different places, chances are that the place you are eloping will be an adventure of epic proportions not just for you, but for your dog! Imagine how exciting it will be for your fur baby to get a change of scenery outside of the home and yard and get to see and experience something new!
Seeing dogs roam in nature, even leashed, is a truly glorious thing to witness!
Bringing your dog to your elopement means you get to celebrate your big day with an important member of your family.
Being able to get a full family photo including your dog is of course the best part!
When you bring your dog to your elopement you won’t have to worry about how they are doing back at home with the dog-sitter. If you’re just going to miss each other the whole time, you might as well bring them along to share in the joy where you can be a bit more relaxed!
Asheville is super dog-friendly, with so many bars and cafes that allow dogs and plenty of dog parks and spaces to walk outdoors, making it a great fit for the entire trip. There is even a specialty dog bar called The Wag Bar!
