But should it be a destination wedding you are preparing for, your best option may be to leave your pet at home. Oftentimes destination weddings involve crossing borders and that, in and of itself, can present a barrage of issues for you and your pup. If you are finding yourself torn between leaving your pet at home or taking him with you, let us help you make that decision the easiest one you will make throughout the entire wedding planning process! VIP Pet Services offers pet sitting that is second to none. Our vetted sitters will care for your pet as if their own and your mind can be set at ease.

And speaking of being at ease, you can also calendar us in to be there for your pet when you are away on your honeymoon. Your pet’s comfort and well-being is our number one priority while you are away. After all, the last thing you need to worry about while frolicking in the waves and basking in the sun on your honeymoon is whether or not your furry family member is being taken care of.

Pets in weddings. It’s the new norm. As Carrie Underwood put it: “[My dog] will be one of the ring bearers – he’s like my kid…[he] is such a big part of my life.” Involving your 4 legged family member in your wedding these days is nothing short of apropos…a modern day “furry tail” dream come true.
