helping himself to the buffet. To make a pet’s presence perfect on the big day, Morris Animal Inn, an innovative leader in pet care, is now offering wedding services to help more couples say “I do” beside their dogs.

Couples have enough to worry about on their wedding day, so Morris Animal Inn’s new comprehensive wedding services provide professional, loving care for dogs before, during and after the wedding celebration. Transportation to and from the wedding, pre-wedding grooming and styling, a personal attendant for ceremonies and photos, and post-wedding overnight luxury accommodations are just some of the services that can be individually tailored for each dog at the request of the bride and groom.

“There is no doubt that including dogs in weddings is a growing trend,” said Joanne Morris, vice president of Morris Animal Inn. “After all, pets are members of the family and such a momentous occasion would not be complete without them.”

Wedding services can be customized and can include:
