We have 3 dogs, but because we had a destination wedding it was only feasible to take 1. We took the one that we got first, she’s also the one that handles travel and new situations the best.

We chose not to have ours at the wedding, but I think a lot depends on your pet and its temperment.  Our dog is not a happy camper when we take her some place new with a lot of people.  Going to a new park when its quiet and she can take her time and explore = great happy dog, new park with a crowd and lots of noise and commotion= nervous unhappy stressed out dog. She does ok with family coming to the house, but has her “spot” where her bed is that she will retreat to if feeling overwhelmed.  If we had brought her she would have been unhappy, I would have been worried about her and it just wasn’t worth all that.

I love my dog, but no, he was not part of our wedding. The last thing I needed to worry about on my wedding day was tending to my dog or expecting someone else to do it for me. We were also getting married where we grew up, 5 hours from where we live.

For families with pets of the right disposition, sure, go for it if the logistics work out.
