Puppy love

Brides-to-be in the States are increasingly demanding that their dogs dress up for the wedding too, reports the Chicago Herald. Sales of miniature frilly bridesmaid dresses, tiny black tuxedos and sequined white wedding dresses (with veils) are booming, as pets are brought into The Big Day, typically at the request of the bride.  "Couples don't have children, but they do have a dog, so it only makes sense that they would stand up in their wedding," said Sheila Spitza, co-owner of Wet Nose Pet Spa in Geneva, who has sold eight tiny satin beaded dresses for dogs this year. Ring-bearer tuxes and flower-dog dresses are apparently the most popular, and many shops even has a dedicated seamstress on hand to alter dresses to fit any size dog.
