These Custom Etsy Doggy Gowns Mean You Can Finally Dress Your Pup Like the ’80s Bridesmaid She Is

If there’s one wedding detail that’s been iron-clad from the start, it’s the fact that—even though you love your bestie Barbara the most—your darling dog Samson is the mutt of honor you most want by your side when you say, “I do.” (Sorry, Barb!)

The part that’s been a bit fuzzier to work out? What the heck she’ll wear down the aisle. Sure, you could throw on a puppy-size flower crown or a color-coordinated leash of sorts, but you’ve always fantasized about something more fancy and upscale and apropos to her role in your life.

That’s where this elegant (and customizable) doggy bridesmaid dress comes in. Available on Etsy, it’s handmade and comes with a detailed collar and fully lined bodice. And that’s not all: The shoulders are finished with gathered frill to give the impression of fitted sleeves on your pup and the bottom is a full-bodied skirt that’s rounded off and tapered to your pup’s underbelly. The final flourish? A larger-than-life bow at the waist.

What’s more, the dress comes in twelve different colors, so it will suit any color palette you’ve got planned from navy to mustard yellow to plum.

As for the cost, it depends on the size you order. (An extra small will set you back $80 while a large is closer to $150, shipping not included.)

Still, as far as wedding sticker shock goes, it’s a drop in the dog bowl, er, bucket.
