Pets at Your Wedding Ceremonies

KM Blog Header- Pets2

Pets at Your Wedding Ceremonies

 

Let’s face it, for some of us our pets are our fur babies. We love them so much as much (or on some days) more than our own children. So it is natural to want them to be part of your special day. Having your pet at your ceremony is not as difficult as you would think and can be a great addition to photos and the procedure, however there are some important questions you need to ask first:

 

Is the venue pet friendly?

If they say no animals are allowed at the ceremony then you either need to scrap the idea or start looking for a new ceremony location.

 

Is your pet friendly towards ALL people?

If the answer is not a resounding YES, then you may need to reconsider this. If they like most people but don’t like kids that may be a problem. If they don’t like males, that may be a problem. If they don’t like anyone near mum and dad that may be a problem too.

 

Is your pet well trained?

Will your pet pull the lead out of whoever is holding them as soon as they see you? Do they freak out over loud noises? Are they happy to stay in one spot or will they start digging? Ensure you know how well behaved your pet is before you have them there.

 

Will there be any other animal there?

This is something you might not have thought about but if the venue has a local cat and your dog loves to chase cats this could end in disaster. If the venue has their own dog will your one be trying to mark everything in sight during your vowels? If there are horses on the property how will your pet react? If there is any other kind of animal there you should double check first.

 

Got answers to all of the above and it all sounds good? Great! Now let’s get into your pet being part of the ceremony:

 

What are they going to do?

Are you wanting them to bring down the rings on their collar? Are you riding them in (if it is a horse, don’t do that to a dog)? Or are you wanting them just to be there and maybe in some photos? Whatever you decide will determine what is required. You may have to do some practise training to ensure they not only know what to do, but also have a backup just in case they decide to ‘go off script’

 

What are they going to wear?

Even though a tux and hat looks very cute in photos, most animals actually don’t like them and making them wear it for about an hour may not work. You also run the risk of them overheating which can be dangerous in the warmer months. Usually a nice collar with a bow tie is fine but if you want to get really elaborate ensure they have worn it before and are ok with it.

 

Who is going to look after them?

If you can get a family member or friend to pick them up and then drop them off at home that is great, but there is also a service in Perth that do that for you!

My Pet Attendant is run by Karen and Greg, we know this because we did their wedding! They offer a complete package of picking up your pet, looking after them during the ceremony, taking them for a walk once all the photos are done and then taking them back home. This is an excellent service for those who don’t want to ask family or friends to do it.

Most Unique Reception Venues In Perth- Komodo Music DJs

KM Blog Header- Venues

Most Unique Reception Venues In Perth

Perth has no shortage of beautiful venues, the problem is if you live here it is easy to take it for granted. So while Komodo Music has been to almost every venue in the Perth metro, I think it is fair to say we know some of the more ‘unique’ ones which differ from the rest.

When creating this list there were some criteria we followed:

  1. It must have something that no other venue has- For while The Pan Pacific and the Tradewinds might be very nice venues, when you get into them they are very similar so it has to have a character both on the inside and out
  2. It should be something you never thought of- If I say reception on the river you might automatically think Matilda Bay, Mulberry on Swan, or Burswood on Swan. We have tried to avoid ones like that unless they are very pretty.
  3. It needs to be able to hold at least 50+ people- There are some great really small venues like 1907 Restaurant which are more for those direct family weddings. We have tried to avoid those. We will note though if they can hold 50+ with cocktail then we might include it.
  4. It has to be able to have a dance floor and DJ- because let’s be honest, if you can’t dance, what’s the point of having a reception

 

AQWA

Being able to have your pre dinner drinks in the aquarium is awesome and something your guests will talk about as they wander through the venue. While the reception room itself is fairly standard it is the location and the space which gives this venue a leg up

 

Perth Bell Tower

I can vouch for personal experience here as I got married and had the reception at the Bell Tower. It is so different and very cool to have a function here. Usually you have it on the top floor but due to the time of year we had the reception inside in the ground floor and it was amazing. You can read all about it here

 

Crystal Swan

Having a party on a boat is pretty cool, but having a party on a two story boat is even cooler. Being able to have the dinner upstairs, and dance floor down stairs, but have music playing in both areas is great for us DJs and saves on space for you.

 

Winthrop Hall

If you are looking for a space that can fit over 400 people, Winthrop has got you covered. It is air conditioned, looks stunning and has heaps of photo locations for your wedding.

 

Maritime Museum Fremantle

A beautiful sunset and history all around, there aren’t too many places that can claim to have a giant boat hang just behind the bridal party table.

 

Indiana Cottesloe

If you like vintage and beach, this is the only venue you will need. The unique room layout fits perfectly with a classic theme and you have long tables for your guests to sit at.

 

Little Creatures Brewery

Beer lovers be damned, this is a cool place to have a wedding. The atmosphere is very Fremantle and the food is great too.

 

Rottnest Island

There are a few places on Rottnest to have a reception and they are all good. Not only do you have the sunset looking out over Perth, but you usually have little furry gate crashers at your wedding

 

Are there any other venues in Perth that you consider unique? Have you had your wedding at one of these places and how was it? Let us know in the comments below.
