We didn’t have him at the wedding but I took photos with him while I was getting ready. He wore a bow tie 🙂 

there were 2 reasons we didn’t want him at the wedding (1)he would jump on people and whine if he was held back from being next to us and (2) okay this is probably a really weird thing to admit but it bummed me out to think about him being in all of our ceremony photos because far in the future it would be painful to see him after he is passed away. I just want to be happy when I see the photos.

Ashleylrice:  This always strikes me as a bad idea. Although adorably cute in theory the logistics of it just seem too much. Unless you are getting married at your home someone is going to have to miss a portion of your wedding to look after your dog. Is that really fair?

also if it is a new environment your dog will likely be excited, especially with all those new sites, sounds, smells and people. Dogs also like to mark their scent in new places…….not so nice to have to stop a dog peeing half way down the aisle.

Is there a way to take some photos before the ceremony at home with your dog?

My dog is (theoretically) going to be our ring bearer. She will have a floral collar and carry the rings to us inside a Pokeball. My cousin is walking her down the aisle. She is actually allowed to roam the grounds freely with us all day. The only time we have to put her away is during dinner, at which point she will be secured in her kennel in the bridal party’s getting ready room which is very spacious. We are going to take her to the site before the wedding if we can (it is a public place) so she can get acquainted with the space. The only thing I am worried about is her actually walking down the aisle. She knows and loves many of our guests so I’m not sure if she will walk right down, lol.
