    I've been to a wedding with a dog / animal in it!

    Our dog was apart of the ceremony.

    Our dog was apart of the entire wedding day!

    We had a different animal in our wedding.

    I haven't been to a wedding with a dog in it.

    I was in a wedding with a dog. 

    1. the dog was walked down the aisle by a groomsmen.  (she wanted a child, but didn’t really know any).  Dog wore a leash. 


    2. The dog sat in the front row.


    3. The dog was in pictures before the ceremony, after the couple had their “first look” photos.  The dog did not follow them around to take more portraits… the photog got a few and said that was enough.  The groomsman watched the dog during their portraits.


    4.  Immediately after the ceremony, someone came to pick up the dog and apparently watch him over the weekend.  He did not get to stay at the wedding


    5. As far as I know, the dog peed in the parking lot.  

    People loved the dog, he was a hit! 

    ETA: Your spacing looks fine… just renders differently for the OP!  A WB glitch 🙂

    We had our dog in our wedding!

    1. I had a bridesmaid walk him down, she loves dogs and was 100% excited about it. We also had more bridesmaids than groomsmen so it worked out that way.

    2. Zeus stayed with the bridesmaid at the alter until my dad walked me down the aisle, and then she handed him off to my dad.

    3. We did all our pictures before the ceremony, but timing aside, he was around us the whole time. He entertains himself pretty easily so he never got in the way, and all our wedding party was comfortable keeping an eye on him and helping if they needed to.

    4. Our venue was very easy-going, so after the ceremony he ran around outside for a bit and then we actually have a camper in our truck that he went to sleep in.

    5. He spent the whole day being entertained and running around with my husband…by the end of the ceremony he was exhausted and went to sleep as soon as we put him in the camper. We did sneak away a few times to go check on him.

    Having our dog was a priority too, and we wouldn’t change a thing. He is high energy as well, but he was so well behaved, like he knew he needed to be good 🙂 Plus this is one of our favorite pictures from the day!

    Good luck, and go with what you want- you know your dog best!
