Okay, so you're a dog lover. No, no, no, you're always having to tell people, you really, really love dogs. And you're getting married this year. And so of course you have to find a super-wooper cute outfit for your dog. Obviously.

But then, where do you even get a top hat that size? And where are you going to find a frilly dress for your doberman? Calm down. Everything is going to be okay, because a range of companies will outfit your pooch in proper attire for your big day.

As the company points out, "Doggie's sophisticated outfit will be a perfect compliment to the bride and groom." Take one look at this and tell them they're wrong. (Or there's this.)

Of course, plenty of other companies dog wedding gowns, including this one, which makes gowns "for the high fashion dog" and boasts that "Couture wedding gowns are one of a kind and area created with your dog's measurements and your ideas."

According to My Uptown Pooch, the cost for one of its couture dog bridal gowns range from $75 to $10, 000.

A question for dog lovers: how much would you pay to deck your dog out in wedding apparel?
