Are you, or somebody you know, getting married soon? Are you, or somebody you know, worried about the furbaby (or furbabies!) on the big day? For some of us, pets are not just pets - they are our family. According to Stitch, family means that nobody gets left behind or forgotten, which is no exception on the big day! This is where First Class Pet Wedding Assistants, a fully insured, registered, and police checked service, come in. You've got enough to plan for the wedding itself, so why wouldn't you leap at the chance of reducing your workload if given the choice?
A Pet Wedding Assistant will attend the wedding with your furbaby - you've got one less thing to worry about, because your canine or feline companion now has a date! If your wedding location isn't quite in the Brisbane location, don't fret because First Class Pet Wedding Assistants are willing to travel up to 2 hours from Brisbane - including the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, and Toowoomba.

Prior to the big day, Pet Wedding Assistants will work with you and your wedding planner (if applicable), to figure out how to remove any pet related concerns you may have. They are also willing to visit your home to discuss the arrangements at no extra cost, in addition to providing a trial run before the wedding to ensure that the Pet Wedding Assistant is familiar with each of the wedding locations, as well as travel times. On the topic of travelling, pet owners can choose between their pooch being transported in comfortable Animates crates or using a seatbelt attachment. Either way, your furbaby will be treated like royalty, with a luxury pet mattress.

First Class Pet Wedding Assistants will also ensure that your pet will be dressed to the nines for the once in a lifetime event, with clothing options including tuxedos, bowties, handmade flower collars, flower girl dresses, in addition to ring pillows, ring pockets, and 'Just Married' plaques. Just imagine how good they'll look in the photos. Plus, they'll smell nice and fresh too, with the option of a hydro-bath appointment prior to the wedding.

Staff will be equipped with treats, water bowls, fresh water, grooming equipment, spare lead/collar/harness, paper towels, plastic bags, and a portable GPS at all times - they'll be ready to face the most unexpected of unexpected events! Best of all, they will also be equipped with a camera, with pictures from your furbaby's point of view from the day sent to you, free of charge.

And their top notch service doesn't stop there - if you require pet sitting, dog walking, and/or overnight services on your wedding night or whilst you're on your honeymoon, please see the First Class Pet Sitting website. Your furbabies are visited in your own home - staff will do their utmost to mirror their usual routine with you, so that they feel as comfortable as possible whilst you are away. Hopefully this will also make going away a little easier.

Her goal is to grow the business through passion and love for pets of all sizes and breeds, and by placing their clients' satisfaction as the top priority.
