Carrie Underwood's declaration that she wants her miniature pinscher, Ace, to stand up in her wedding got us thinking about what in the world the little pooch would wear. But after a quick Google search, we found there's a whole world of websites devoted to dog-tailored wedding-day ensembles.
If Carrie trusts Ace with the rings, she could dress him in a black rhinestone "ring bearer" tee, secure a wedding-ring pillow on his back (both courtesy of Advantagebridal.com), or go the traditional route with Doggieclothesline.com's black tuxedo, complete with a bow tie and top hat.
Have a girly dog? Outfit her in a frilly flower-girl or bridesmaids' dress from Doggievogue.com. If you favor the classic look, accessorize with a simple white or pink freshwater-pearl necklace. (In the same vein, if your male pooch is more of a rocker, the black-and-white skull-shirt dog collar will keep him looking a little edgy.)
But remember, location is everything. Having a preppy, East Coast wedding? Doogievogue.com's red-and-blue nautical-themed tank is just the thing. Or if you're planning an outdoor garden party, Doggieclotheline.com's pink floral bow tie and sleeve will perfectly complement the surroundings.
