My gosh Gus is damn adorable! I wish I could do this with ours but we have 2 Boxer pups who are not well behaved ever, I cannot imagine how they would be with 80+ people around. You’ll have to post pictires of your ceremony.

I would LOVE for my dog to be in the wedding, but he’s too easily excitable and would most likely jump all over my dress and rip it. hahaha.

Still tempted though as my venue does allow pets! 😀

I say go for it! It’s your wedding and a pet is like family!

My mom got married in June and included all three of her dogs. Two were flower girls and one was the ring bearer. She made all their colors. The flower girls, Molly and Cheyenne, got flowers and ribbon on there’s and the ring bearer, Gizmo, had two styrofoam balls attached to his collar that held the rings. It was a very cute idea and could work in theory but didn’t work very smoothly for my mom.

She got married next to a lake and my sister and I (bridesmaids) spent most of the ceremony preventing Cheyenne from jumping in the lake or trying to run up to the groom. Gizmo spent most of the ceremony crying because he couldn’t get to the groom. Thank god it was a very casual ceremony.

My advice to you is seriously think about it before you decide and if you decide to include him, put some serious time into training him – like many many trial runs. By the way, your dog is absolutely adorable!
