I was at a wedding last month were the groom brought one dog down the aisle, and the bride brought the other. They didn’t have a wedding party at all though, so it was them or no one! LOL! Everyone loved seeing her with the dog though, and I guess you could say the other dog was the best man?

I think having the BM/MOH would be fine. My cousin was planning on having her dogs in her wedding, and she was going to have my mom (her aunt), who wasn’t in the wedding party, walk them down.

I am having my Stew walk down the aisle with the first bridesmaid down the aisle. What I’m undecided about is if he should stay with her at the front, or if she should hand him off to the groomsmen once she gets to the head of the aisle (they’ll already be up there). 

On one hand, we’re having 3 bm and 2 gm so having our (male) dog on the male side would even things out… but would that be too weird? like we’re pretending he’s a groomsmen? lol

We had our boys escorted by my step-SIL. They went out right before my Dad and I, but I didn’t really have a title for them. If she hadn’t agreed to do it, I was going to have our Best Man walk his dog and Maid of Honor walk mine down. Here’s a picture of the awesomeness*:


*I have no idea how she navigated a forest, two dogs, and carried a ring box while wearing heels. She’s just amazing and gorgeous!

Cute dogs!!!! We’re having my FI’s nephew walk my dog down the isle…I wanted the dog to be ring bearer, but Fiance thought we should probably include the little guy. So, they’re co-ring bearers!!

I think that is a great idea.

Please remember that not everyone would want to be seen escorting dogs down the aisle. I love pets but may be part of the minority in that I would drop out of being a bridesmaid before i would walk down the aisle with a dog.

While you may think it is cute, your wedding party may not share that opinion.

No, it’s not sad- it’s just a differing opinion.
