I had a friend that had their dog as the ring bearer. It was really cute and its a very creative idea!

Or you could have them as grooms ‘men’. Maybe they could ‘walk’ some of the BMs down the isle? They make tuxs and suits for dogs.

Or maybe have one sit on the groom’s side and on sit on the brides and have the other one as a ring bearer?

That also depends on how well trained your dogs are and you may want to have someone who can keep an eye on them during the wedding.

I don’t know your plans for walking down the aisle, but maybe you could be able to walk them up there with you? Or maybe your groom can enter the ceremony walking the dogs up the aisle, and then handing them off to the groomsmen or someone in the front row who can watch after them.

We trained our dog to walk donw the aisle.  It was SO cute! if you dont wan to train your dogs to walk down themselves, you could consider having your bridesmaids walk each of them down the aisle, and their leashes could be in coordinating colors to the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses.

Our dog will be walking with the flower girls down the aisle.  The petals will be in little wicker baskets hanging from his back.  He’ll also have a wreath of flowers as a collar.

Cute!! When Brother-In-Law Pinot got married their dog served as the ring bearer – she is a very calm and well trained pup so she was fine walking on her own. I had another friend who’s dogs were not quite as a calm so he (the groom) plans to walk them down the aisle with him.

I wish I could remember where I saw it, but I remember seeing pictures of a wedding reception that used pictures of their dog to mark the tables. Each table had a picture of the dog, with a sign around his neck bearing the table number.I thought that was a really cute way to encorporate the dog(s). (And that works for less-calm dogs as well, who you may not trust around elderly or young guests… like my bad dog).

My two Shih-Tzus are my flower girls 🙂 If you can’t have your dogs in your actual wedding, I definitely think it is cute to have pet picture table numbers a la Mrs. Pineapple. Good luck 🙂

I’d love to have Mr. Huckleberry as our ringbearer, but Mr. Peep and my mom won’t allow it. Pengy, how come all your pics are so fantastic!!??

I’ll be taking pictures before the ceremony, and we’re bringing out my dog then.  Maybe just have them in the photos?  Then you don’t have to worry about them messing up the ceremony.  ô¿ò

We wanted to incorporate our little furbaby in the wedding too but since she is still a puppy and a Labrador too (crazy about people!) we thought maybe that wasn’t such a good idea. So we decided to make an aisle runner with our monogram at the end and puppy prints leading to the front. Anyone who knows our dog can imagine that she made them herself!

I would say that it depends on your dogs’ temperaments.  Weimers and Vizlas are NOT the most sedate of dogs!  😀  At least, I’ve never known one under the age of 12 that would be willing to sit still for that long, and even that it would have been pushing it. 

If you don’t want to have someone be in charge of them for the whole night I think table markers with their photos are a great idea.  Or if someone could bring them in for photos and then take them back home that might work too. 

We’ve got a Pit and a Ridgeback mix that the Boy really wants to have as the ringbearers.  I’m not such a fan of the idea because it would take our Pit way too long to make it down the aisle since he’d have to say hi to everyone and get lovin’s!
