Aww, I would love to have my dog involved. Unfortunately she’s absolutely batshit crazy.

I’m trying to figure how the sequencing will work for my son (peke/chihuahua mix) to be in the wedding as well.  I only picked venues that were pet friendly – if they wouldn’t let him be there, it was off my list!  There were several in the area that accommodated our little ringbearer, but we decided to go with a hotel in the end.  The ceremony and reception will be at the same location, so not only will it be easier on our out-of-town guests, it will be easier for our little one to take a nap after his duties are completed during the ceremony.  We will just take him up to our hotel suite and he can be comfortable.  We can check on him from time to time during the evening and no one will have to doggy sit the whole evening:)

That’s funny!  

At least you see it though and are willing to admit it.  Other pet parents, not so much!  Smile

from personal experience, make sure to have a poop plan! (NOT mine, but weddings I have been to).

It helps that your ceremony is outdoors but even so. Make sure you have a plastic bag or whatever you use when walking him on hand. And perhaps desigmate someone other than the Groomsmen who is with the dog, to be on scooper duty. Because obviously you don’t want the Groomsmen doing that if something happens mid-ceremony!

Have the person sit on the aisle near the front so they can move in and out if needed, quickly. I know you would think most pups wouldn’t do such a thing but if you add in strange surroundings they can be unpredictable in that department.
