If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to attend a four-legged wedding, here’s your chance! Melbourne’s favourite homewares store, Third Drawer Down, is hosting their annual sale gala with a day completely dedicated to the pawfect puppy unions. Only in Melbourne.

Your big-pawed friend can marry their one true wet-nosed wurve, or anyone (or thing) they take a particular humping to on the day. If your furry friend is having trouble getting another dog’s tail wagging, there will be an official (and totally foolproof) matchmaking service prior to the big day.

The tear-jerking weddings will take place between 12pm and 2pm on Sunday 6 March, with celebrant (aka real wedding marrying person) Dorothy Gilmore squeezing in as many doggy nuptials in two hours. Props and a photographer will be provided, so you needn’t worry about finding some XXL puppy pants that won’t offend your best furry buddy.

Catering will be provided by The Dog Grocer at the reception (of course there’s a reception), so floppy-eared guests can enjoy treats on the day complete with doggy massages for pups feeling a bit ruff around the edges.

Other events on the day include a $80 dive into a clean dumpster (we would tell you there are better prizes than rubbish inside, but there are no guarantees) and of course, the Third Drawer Down sale with 25% off storewide.

Keep updated via the Third Drawer Down website, this is going to be one barking mad event... We hope less canine marriages end in divorce...who would get custody of the best ball? 

Bad weather ahead? There’s nothing you can do on wedding day…but you can check out the 47 Things To Do In Melbourne When The Weather Is Crap!
