Bridesmaids, Celebrity

Howard Stern's fiance is having her bulldog Bianca act as her bridesmaid, and she's making sure the pooch looks the part! Model and actress Beth Ostrosky recently ordered a crystal bridal collar from Hamptons Hound for her October wedding. The hand-finished, luxurious Santorini Collar comes with a hefty price tag: the jeweled accessory sells up for up $350. Looking for a low-cost alternative for your dog? You don't have to be a celebrity to dress your pooch in style. In addition to a bridal collection, Hamptons Hound offers dazzling collars and leads starting at $23. —Kathryn Papanek

Wedding Wisdom: Think about your dog's personality before including him or her in your wedding ceremony. Dogs that spook easily or don't like strangers may not be the best choices for your wedding party. To avoid issues, do a practice run with your pooch to make sure that he or she is familiar with the ceremony site and any new collars or leads before the big day.
