    So cute!  I say go for it, assuming he is mellow enough to chill out during the ceremony.  Or maybe you can desginate someone to keep their eye on him.  Adorable!

    AWW!  He’s adorable!  I would have loved to have had our dog in our ceremony, but we got married out of state and couldn’t bring him with us (well…he probably would have “talked through the whole ceremony anywho!).  I love the idea, especially if the dog is well-behaved enough to sit quietly!!

    Gizmo is our wedding. It was a demand. When I went to our first meeting with the location, I was asked, do you have any questions for me? And I said, My dog is going to be in the wedding, and he looked at me and said ummm.. and I stood up and almost walked out. With that being said, I have a dogwalker coming, to bring him a few minutes before, and to take him home after. AND our dog has been through multiple training, and he’s really REALLY calm.

    I just got married on Saturday and our Shepherd turned out to be the best part of the wedding! Its really hit or miss with new situations but we were able to get him used to an alternate handler and he was familiar with the location! Even if it goes a little wonky, it will add character to your wedding 😉 Good luck!

    Also, FYI -We made a emergency dog bag of toys, bully stick, peanut butter, treats etc so someone could take him and occupy him, should their be a problem. He also wore a black bowtie, but it blended in too much in photos lol

    I love the idea of dogs incorporated in the wedding, they’re family members. My sister tell’s she’s making our little dog my flower girl.. let’s see.

    I love the idea!! I was going to incorporate my family dog into our wedding, but she is 14 now (will be 15 by the wedding), so it will probably be too much excitement for the old girl lol.
