5 Ways to Include a Dog in Your Marriage Proposal

Posted by Emerald Hound on

Engagement season is just around the corner! The holidays are the perfect time to celebrate a new engagement with friends and family, so it’s no wonder that a whopping 40% of proposals occur between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day. If you’re thinking of popping the question soon, consider including your dog in your special proposal!

Our pets are family, and there are so many adorable ways that your dog can be involved in your engagement. Whether or not your pet can be physically present for the engagement or not, having them included can make the proposal even more special.

Here are five unique and adorable ways to include your pet in your marriage proposal.

1. Have Your Dog Wear a Custom Pet Bandana

Dress your dog up for the occasion with a super cute and customizable pet bandana! Add your favorite, personalized saying like “Will you marry Dad/Mom” and send your pet off to help in the proposal!

2. Make a Personalized Pet Tag

Another great option is to create a personalized proposal dog or cat tag for your fur-baby to wear. While your significant other is checking out their new tag, you can get down on one knee. What a paw-fect surprise!

3. Serve them a Custom Coffee Mug Featuring Your Pet

If your partner loves their morning coffee fix, why not deliver a wedding proposal along with their cup of joe? Your pet’s portrait will be illustrated on one side of the custom coffee mug and your custom saying can be added to the other! This is a keepsake mug that you’ll love holding on to for years and years to come.


4. Have Your Pet Wear a Custom Sign

Making a custom sign for your pet to wear around their neck is a tried and true engagement idea, and will set you up for adorable post-engagement photos. Our foil-pressed signs in rose gold, gold, or silver can be customized with the saying of your choice, and framed later for a sweet memento.

5. Have Your Dog Deliver the Ring in a Goodie Bag

This one takes a little training, but the results are paw-some. Stash the ring in a personalized doggie bag and teach your dog to deliver it!
