I think incorporating her is a wonderful idea!  (Assuming of course that the stress won’t be detrimental to her.) 

I know some people have used a long ribbon as a leash, but I have always wondered about the effectiveness of that if they decided to take off.  If she would be happiest with your fiance what about letting her lay at his feet (while having someone else responsible for minding her)?  My cousin did that with his old pointer.  Could she keep the wedding kids entertained, and vice versa?

We had our flower girls walk with Catch down the aisle.  He stood up front with everyone until he got bored and started rolling in the grass.  Then our friend came and took him to the seats.  We also gave him a floral collar (much to Mr. Bee’s chagrin!).

I don’t think he looked any less manly and there are some great shots of him (which you can see in our photo teaser).

I think it would be wonderful to incorporate her into the ceremony, and especially meaningful to you two as a couple!

It sounds like it would really well to incorporate her then!  I really wish we could do the same with our dogs but it wouldn’t really work.  If they were a bit older (and less interested in rabbits) then we would definitely be doing something similar.
