I don’t think you have the right as a stranger to confront the neighbour about their barking dog. The facts are you heard the dog barking once. It would one thing if this was your neighbour and you had documented evidence of habitual barking.

The only thing you can do is ask the venue if they have noticed this during other weddings and if yes what is their fix for that.

Talk to the venue first.  If they say its a common occurance, I say show up with a gift basket and dog treats and politely ask them if they could pretty please keep the dog in for just a bit during your ceremony.

I agree with your FH.  Don’t borrow too much worry from the future – goodness knows there are other details to worry about.  If the dog is out and about before the ceremony, you can ask someone to deal with it.  Hopefully you’ll be in too much of a state of wedding bliss to even think about it!
