Planning the Scottie Mom Wedding

Scottie Mom and Dad are finally tying the knot! The date has been set, the venue selected and the dress has been purchased. There's still a lot to do so while Scottie Mom's at work during the day, I flip through all the magazines we've been collecting since the engagement for inspiration. (You can read all about Scottie Dad's very Scottie Proposal here.) You see, Scottie Mom's a busy bee between her "real" job and chronicling the important aspects - OK, every aspect -  of our Scottie lives at night. So, as her maid of honor, I figured what better way to chip in and help the bride-to-be than by using my impeccable Scottie taste to help iron out the remaining details?

Here's what is on our to-do list before the big day in December:

- Choose a pawtographer.

- Select the Scottie Mom wedding colors.

- Pick out dresses for the bridesmaids (and one for me, of course!).

- Sniff out the best florists.

- Hire a rockin' band or DJ so Scottie Dad and I can boogie to the music.

- Get Mr. K into a tux he won't try to destroy.

- Finalize the menu and have some cake! (I personally can't wait for you think Scottie Mom will let me participate in the taste testing?)

Phew! That's a lot for one doggie to handle. I might have to call in Mr. K for reinforcement, especially when negotiating contracts with vendors. No one will want to mess with him! Luckily, we have just under 10 months to help Scottie Mom pull everything together. I'll be sure to report back and keep everyone posted on our progress as we go. Oh, and if you come up with any fun and creative ways to work us Scotties into the wedding, be sure to let us know! Love, Heather.


  1. Tartan accents are necessary, don't you think? I know they make a Scottie wax seal to emboss on envelopes. You can buy colored hot glue sticks that are way easier to use than wax melts. How fun

  2. Great job Heather... Keep up the race:)

  3. Good luck with all the planning. Sounds like a lot of fun and congratulations to your mom.

  4. Yes good luck with all the planning. Congratulations to mum and dad and we hope all the preparations go smoothly. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. Absolutely! YOu gotta pawticipate in the taste testing. Dat's da best part!
    I agree with Daisy…. Tartan is the new white!

  6. How great. Congratulations! How about wearing kilts?

  7. You have so many details left in your paws Heather. I am sure you will make it a special day for your Mom.

  8. Congrats to Scottie Mom. Heather, tartan would be a great color scheme...think about it.

    Aroo to you,

  9. You need to write a book on all your stories – reading them is the best part of the day.

  10. OMD! You're going to be busy. But you're a scottie, just unleash that scottitude and you'll breeze through.

    XXXOOO Bella & Roxy

  11. Congratulations!!! There is a lot to do, but still plenty of time. If you do a little bit at a time, it won't be so overwhelming when the big day draws near.

  12. Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! I hope it is a beautiful day for your whole family (both four and two-legged).
    I have helped with a few Scottish weddings where the bride dressed their Scotties in tuxedo kilts and made them the ring bearers. (I have one of the kilt outfits in stock, if you would like to see it.)

  14. Our friends Gretel and Chester were ring bearers in their person's wedding. Here's some inspirational picture for your scrapbook:

  15. OK, we join with Bitey Dog, you guys GOTTA BE THE RING BEARERS, and you need scottish tartans, Hey Don't you think Mom & Dad should be wearing Scottish clothes, betcha Dad would look smashing in a kilt.

  16. Oh wow! That's exciting! You could be ring bearers, but that's not very original. Will have to think about it.

    That sounds super exciting!

    how lucky Scottie Mom has such good help for this very impawtant event! :)

    Are you guys any good at playing the bagpipes? That could be a fun addition to your Scottie wedding! :)

    I hope you're having a fun day,

    Your pal Snoopy :)

  18. You make an excellent wedding planner. Will it be a tartan wedding? Or at least some scottie motifs on the dresses and on the men's ties:-)

  19. Oh Heather, aren't you just adorable doing all this for mummy... you have a lot to handle, but I bet you manage perfectly.
    I wasn't around for the proposal post, so I took a read ... my goodness, how gorgeous. With you three, (that's daddy in there obvs) mummy has nothing to worry about!
    Hugs, Carrie (Myfie, Ellie and Millie) x

  20. A lot of planning required. Best of luck to you and your Mom and Dad. :)

  21. Ohh so exciting! Congratulations to your mommy and daddy!

  22. Congratulations to Scotty mom and dad :D

  23. Who will be carrying the rings - Mr. K??? Will Miss Heather be flower girl???

  24. We are think a wedding cake with Scottie toppers? Or would that be too much? We are so looking forward to reading all, we don't ever get to go to a wedding. Aroooo! Haggis and Lucy McNaughty xxx
