Paul “Sweet Paul” Lowe is guided by his grandmother Mormor’s motto: “fullkommenhet er kjedelig” — “perfection is boring.” Born in Oslo, his Mormor and Great Auntie Gunnvor instilled in him a love for cooking and crafting that carried over to his career in New York as a food and props stylist, and eventually the creative guru behind the quarterly Sweet Paul Magazine, a compendium of beautiful culinary and crafting ideas that are humble and accessible — but never boring!

It’s getting more and more common to bring your pooch to your wedding. And why not? They are a part of the family, after all. Whether your pup has a role in the ceremony (ring bearer, escort, best man’s-best-friend) or just a front-row seat for the big event, he needs to look smart. Here are some snazzy sartorial suggestions, all sourced from Etsy sellers and featured in the first-ever weddings issue of Sweet Paul Magazine (available now in print and digital-download form).

BowTiewithcollar

Maude Marie’s cotton collar-and-bow-tie combo is made to order and attaches with easy-on, easy-off velcro strips. Bonus: It can be outfitted with a ribbon for doggies on ring-bearing duty.

Crown039

This bejeweled metallic-leather crown made by Sun Goddess Collars lends a regal note to the proceedings, but stops just shy of upstaging the bride. (Go on, give a dog a throne.)

Collar290

A daytime garden wedding calls for something with a little color, like this machine-washable floral-patterned shirt collar from The Rover Boutique (also available in solids and checks).

Hankie297

Your four-legged flower girl may not be the best at scattering petals, but a rosette-adorned cotton bandana made by Doggy Design honors her wedding-party status nonetheless.

TuTu096

Only the boldest party animal should attempt to pull off Rock Kandy Designs’ polka-dot tulle tutu and matching feathered headpiece.

Pillow382

Everything about Fresh Line’s ring bearer pillow can be customized: the fabric color, the animal silhouettes, and of course, the details of the big day.

BowTieTwo153

The removable bow tie on this collar by The Rover Boutique means it works for walks down the aisle and around the neighborhood.

Dress237

Make it a day no one – man or beast – will ever forget and snap up Heavenly Pet’s satin-crepe gown, adorned with organza lace flowers and plenty of ruffles.

Tux362

The epitome of fur-mal wear: a handmade tuxedo complete with shirt cuffs, tails, and bow tie from Heavenly Pet.
