Let’s face it nowadays if you have a dog before marriage chances are that dog is part of the family and you want your family to be part of your wedding right? Finding the right Dog friendly venue and vendors can be a challenge. You don’t just want them to have beautiful products and great customer service, you want them to love your fur babies as much as you do right?!!

Well you are in luck, Sunday March 3rd there will be a wedding fair specifically for you! Doggy Social will be putting on a dog friendly wedding fair at Graduate Hotel in Minneapolis. The best part is it’s pet friendly so bring those furry friends so they can get pampered right alongside you! You can get free tickets on Doggy Social’s website. Be one of the first 50 guests and you’ll get free valet parking and a sweet swag bag full of goodies from the vendors.

This event is being put on by Doggy Social MN whose partnering with Sidewalk dogs, Bubbly paws, Minnesota Bride and Graduate Minneapolis Hotel.

The Graduate Minneapolis hotel is a great wedding venue and its super dog friendly! They not only allow your dogs at your wedding and at in the hotel. They also have the most adorable dog blankets for your fur babies stay. As a photographer I love their beautiful wood floors and unique chairs, they make for great photos!

Megan from Corgi Racing Society helped put on this whole photoshoot at the hotel. Some of the amazing dog friendly vendors brought by their products to show off on our beautiful dog models. We had everything from flower crowns, cupcakes, dog food, collars, dresses, dog beds and even pearls! We had a great variety of amazing dogs that modeled for us. Thank you to their parents for taking time out of their busy afternoons to bring their pups by. I love meeting them all!

So if you want a dog friendly wedding this event is not to be missed. If you aren’t available to attend then definitely check out all these great vendors for your upcoming nuptials!
