    Well, can you tell us a bit about your wedding venue/theme? I can totally see animals being out of place in some weddings.

    @pooks:  Our dog was the ringbearer. My hubby hooked the rings to his collar with a carabiner, so they wouldn’t fall off. 

    I’ve never seen a goat as part of the ceremony (although at our venue there were 2 goats on property), but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have Robert carry the rings. What does your FH think?

    Dude- YOU HAVE A PET GOAT!!!!!  Awesome 🙂  So, to make this work… you’ll need someone who can walk him around to make sure he has “relieved” himself before the ceremony, and they can take him home or to a predetermined location after the ceremony.  I think including pets in the cermony or pictures is SO cute, but it can go SO badly.  As long as you have a care plan in place, I think it would be just about the most unique thing EVARRRR.

    I’m sorry. I never liked animals delivering the rings… it always seems to ruin the mood of the ceremony…

    @pooks:  You might want to check with the venue to see if they are ok with it. If they are ok with Robert then go for it! 🙂

    I guess it depends on the formality of your wedding. If its formal, I’d say this is a no go. If its casual, go for it!

    OMG! Robert is awesome! The only thing I would think might be a problem (besides the venue having an issue with it) is what happens to him after the ceremony is over?  Is he okay to hang out there?  Can you have some one take him home?  Is transporting him going to be an inconvience to anyone.  Otherwise go for it!  He is appart of your family and I love when people add their own special touches to the wedding!

    @pooks:  I think if you have a designated “handler” to care for him before the ceremony and take him home after pictures, it would be a cute addition.  I would probably not want to have a goat (or dog, or small children for that matter) running around the reception pooping and drooling on things.

    I’m not a huge fan of animals in weddings, but I think Robert should totally hang out in a pen (or whatever?) for the party!
