An Australian company is helping pet parents celebrate their special day by offering wedding handlers for their furry friends.

For some couples, tying the knot wouldn't be complete without their four-legged friends, and one Australian company, First Class Wedding Assistants, is making it easier than ever to include your furry companions on your special day.

Complete with a team of vets, vet techs, behaviorists, and pet handlers, the company works to handle all of the details.

"Our focus is to relieve the bride and groom from any stress on the big day," founder Gillian Aptroot told This Dog's Life in an original report. "We collaborate with the celebrant, photographers, wedding coordinators to ensure everything runs absolutely perfectly on the day."

So what can one expect from a customized service?

The team starts with a complimentary meet and greet in the client's home where they learn the needs of their client and dress the dogs in their formal wedding attire such as bowties and flower crowns. They can also arrange for a hydrobath for your pet.

On the day of the wedding, a pet handler will arrive at the client's home and transport the dog of honor to the ceremony, where they'll be given ample time to sniff around and familiarize themselves with their surroundings. The pets are then supervised and cared for throughout the wedding, before being taken home for a walk and feed.

Overnight services are available when necessary as well.


Prices range from $350-$500 depending on the package, not including overnight services, which are an additional cost.
