We want to because we don’t have anyone young enough to be a ringbearer or flowergirl, lol. he doesn’t like to “walk on a leash” yet  without tugging because he’s not even a year old. His name is Moose 😀

 Is it a boy or a girl puppy? Depending on which you can get dog tuxedos and flower girl dresses and put them in either/or and have the ringbearer or flowergirl walk them down the aisle


BUT I’d suggest it being someone that the dog knows – our puppy gets really antsy when anyone he doesn’t know walks him, and one time he escaped out of his collar and ran because he was afraid, even though it was my sister walking him

I would LOVE to have our puppy in the wedding (she’ll be 5.5 months at the wedding) but our wedding is in a hotel so it’s just not practical.

We wanted to have our”baby” (90 pound crazy dog) but our venue won’t allow it and it about 45 minutes from our house, so we didn’t know what to do with her anyway after the ceremony.

We still wanted to include her though so she was in our engagement pics and we’re doing pet favors (in addition to our normal favors) for our guests from our dog to theirs!  I know some people think this is weird, but we really wanted to include her!

We really wanted Lucy to be a flower “girl” in our wedding….in fact, finding a venue that allowed it was a requirement by the fiance! However, recently we found out that Lucy suffers from an autoimmune disorder and doesn’t clot blood well. We were told by the vet to really monitor who she’s around, what she gets into, etc. Sadly, we decided it’s in her best interest to not include her. We did compromise with our photographer and will be taking engagement pictures with her!

Our pup would be just over a year for our ceremony; his breed is super people oriented & semi-vocal, so despite however good his behaviour & training are at that point, I wouldn’t want to run the risks of hearing

“do you.. *woof!woof!* take…*yip!woof!woof!yip* to be” etc etc.

Besides that, it’s not really my thing [for the dog to be in the ceremony that is], though he may be present @ the reception since we’re going outdoor/cas.

My son is having his 100 pound chocolate lab as his 10 groomsman!  It wouldn’t be the same without ALL his best buddies, especially his hunting dog who is literally his best friend!  My FDIL loves him too, and all the bridesmaids are arguing who gets to walk down the aisle with the pooch!
