The Biggest Dog Wedding Ceremony Ever

Colleen Sheehy Orme

Is your pup whining to get hitched? Have they been howling for love? Are you ready to be their best mongrel or made of hound? Good news! Your canine can exchange vows, donate to charity, and help break the historic wedding record for the most doggie couples married.

The 'I Woof's' will take place Sunday, October 2nd in Geneva, Illinois. Diamonds in the Ruff is an event that will raise money for U.S. military veterans and animal rescue groups.

Your pup can wag its way down the aisle to a wedding processional song and later toast each other with goat's milk. It's a ceremony fit for a man's best friend.

The People Magazine article, Dozens of Canine Couples Set to Gather in Bid to Break the Largest Dog Wedding World Record explains this quest to surpass the current Guinness World Record for the largest dog wedding ceremony.

"The current record is 178 married dog couples and was set 15 years ago in Littleton, Colorado. This is the organizer's second attempt at breaking the record. In 2021, the ceremony came up short on the number of dog couples needed to overtake the current record, but the event still raised funds for numerous animal rescue groups."
"Sunday's attempt at the largest dog wedding has been dubbed Diamonds in the Ruff. Along with helping canine couples solidify their love, the event will also work to raise $100,000 for K9s for Warriors — a nonprofit dedicated to placing trained service dogs with veterans — other service animal organizations, and local animal rescue groups."

No worries if your pooch is currently unattached.

They can be matched with their one true fido and get married at first sight that day.
