We're dog people around here. "Bring your dog to work day" is every day. So this blog titled, "Proof You Need to Include Your Dogs in Your Wedding" should come as no surprise. Since 2008, we've DJ'd for thousands of weddings, so we can say as experts on the subject that dogs make everything better. Especially weddings.

Here's some highlights from a few of our weddings that prove you should definitely check "yes" for extra steak for your furry wedding guests.

1. Your best friend is there to support you on the most important day.

It's supposed to be the best day ever. We don't know about you, but our best days include pups.

2. You get professional photos of your ENTIRE family.

Other than annual Christmas cards, what other time do you get professional photos done that include your entire household? Years from now, you'll look back and be so happy that your dogs were there for you.

Weddings are stressful, that much is known. But dogs provide free therapy. What more could you ask for?

4. Keep kids entertained.

Kids at weddings. That's a whole blog topic by itself. But dogs make for great babysitters by keeping the kids entertained so you and your guests don't have to.

Don't have any littles in your immediate family or friend group? Problem solved. Just make sure they attend the rehearsal.
