Have you ever hear the old show business adage “never work with children or animals?” Children and animals can behave unpredicably and they can steal every scene. Want to open up a can of worms – just tell people you want a “no children wedding.” You will have some supporters but others will secretly scorn you behind your back.
Weddings are not typically adult only events, in fact at Inn at Laurel Point a Victoria BC Hotel, children often play an important role in the symbolism associated with weddings. Ultimately it is YOUR day and you can have it YOUR way.
For many families a dog is someone they would love to include and there are lots of ways to involve a furry friend. Temperment and disposition, the dogs’ not the grooms’ will help you make this decision. And don’t try to train him, the dog not the groom, in the weeks leading up to the wedding.
You should let your wedding party, vendor and officiant know in advance. The best man may have allergies, and some officiants may refuse to preside over a wedding that includes pets. Be assured however if you were having your wedding at Inn at Laurel Point, you and your four legged friend will find our pet policy “fetching.” We are truly an Inn for lovers and pet lovers … and kids too.
