We’re planning on having our 80 pound lab as part of our ceremony (if we do an outdoor ceremony). If not, we’ll have him in pictures. Everyone who knows us, knows that he is a big part of our lives. He’s well behaved and trained, so I’m not too worried about him bothering other people. My biggest concern is him running over to the trees to pee mid-ceremony, but what can you do???

I think it’s a great idea to have your dog as your “flower-dog.” Good luck!

There is actually no such thing as a truely hypoallergenic breed, just some that are less likely to cause a reaction than others, for this reason alone I would never have my dogs at a wedding and I’m a dog lover. I have 4 and have been breeding/showing for 25 years and was a professinal dog groomer for 15 years.

Most dogs, unless exeptionally well socialized with large groups of people can stress out, causing digestive upset and diarreah. Many a wedding has been ruined by the dog pooping when it shouldnt or freaking out because of large crowds, never mind that you have much more important things to worry about than if the dog has gone potty, eaten or has water or is behaving. A lot of venues will not allow animals, and certainly not in a area where food is going to be served, thats a health code violation.

My guys, to some extent, will be in the engagement photos but no way would I have them at the wedding itself, just a bad idea in my opinion….and I love my dogs more than I like most people, so thats saying a lot.

We were just at a wedding last weekend and their pugs were the ring bearers!  They were so cute!  They just put little color-coordinated tutus on them.  It was fun.  And, you woulnd’t have to pay $130 for a flower cart!  🙂

@MsLobizon:  I’m getting married the day after you and my pug is in my wedding too!  Some people have asked if we’re sure, especially since it’s a semi-destination wedding, but having her in the wedding is the one thing I’m not compromising on.  My youngest brother is walking her down the aisle.  And then after the ceremony she’ll go back to the hotel.  She’s going to be so cute, there’s nothing cuter than a pug!

Here Comes the Puppy... :) :  wedding puppy dog ceremony wedding flower girl Dakoda

My flower girl is carrying a basket of petals with Dakoda (my furbaby) in the basket…he is mix (not sure exactly of what – he was a malnourished rescue when we found him!) -looks like a husky, but he is 2 years old and still the size of a puppy…and he loves to be carried around.

@MinouBear:  Just thought I’d follow up..having my pug there that day was so much fun.  She was a huge hit with everyone, looked completely adorable and was a total angel.  She was just there for the ceremony and while we walked to the reception.  I wish I had pictures to share!

I love this idea; but I don’t think I’d ever trust our scatterbrained Beagle with such an important task.

That is so cute! I love this idea!!! I’m sad that I can’t have my puppy be the flower girl…she is way too hyper and has never been around that many people.
