Listers, the social event of the year is just around the corner! Melbourne’s very first pug wedding (yup, that’s two pugs, dedicating the rest of their four-legged lives to each other) is happening at the West Beach Bathers Pavilion in St Kilda on Sunday 17th May, 1pm till 5pm. Time to get your Sunday best out and get ready for some romance!
Jasper & Jasmine, two of Melbourne’s most loved-up pugs, are set to tie the knot at a ceremony in aid of Pug Rescue & Adoption Victoria Inc., an extremely worthwhile cause that rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes pugs in need. Tickets are only $60 per human including bubbly on arrival, canapés throughout, wedding cake, puggy treat bar, silent auction, live band, photobooth and VIP take home goodies bag. All of the proceeds from the betrotheds’ celebrations will go towards Pug Rescue, meaning this great day out is about more than white dresses and dog treats.
The event itself is shaping up to be a cracker. Event stylist Christian Wagstaff (that’s his real name, we swear!), who has worked for the likes of Crown Casinos and Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, is dressing the event, while Project Runway alumni Craig Braybrook is responsible for the bride’s dress. Celebrity MC Mike Larkan, the nightly weatherman for TEN News, will keep the hands clapping and tails wagging of the over 300 two-legged attendees and over SIXTY PUGS on the guest list—this is bound to be one of Melbourne’s most stylish crowds all season.
Want to get the bride and groom a little special something? The online gift registry lets you purchase a whole range of incredibly helpful presents for the Pug Rescue team and their puggy friends. Choose from vaccinations, chew toys, harnesses, fur shampoo and cosy beds…the list is endless! Whoever said flea tablets weren’t romantic?!
