I occur to love when pets are concerned within the processional of a marriage, and I’ve truly achieved a number of weddings that included canines. One in every of these featured a pair of pugs wearing a bridal robe and tuxedo, respectively. Lovable! Different weddings had the pups function ring bearers, strutting down the aisle with satchels of their mouths containing the marriage rings.

However one caveat: Though this concept is tremendous cute, I strongly advise that you do not put the actual rings within the satchel! Throughout the ceremony, the groom can all the time fake to take away the rings from the satchel, all of the whereas having them safely stowed in his pocket.

That being mentioned, I really feel it actually must make sense to have a pet at your wedding ceremony. If you happen to’re recognized for being a faithful animal lover or for all the time treating your pet like a member of the household, then go for it. However if you happen to’re simply together with a canine so as to add to a forged of characters or to fire up slightly pleasure, then it isn’t so applicable — and should even lead to pointless chaos.

Remember to preserve a couple of guidelines in thoughts:

The bride and groom mustn’t stroll their canine down the aisle. Another person must be answerable for dealing with your pooch(es).

As soon as the ceremony begins, your four-legged mates must be quietly whisked away by an usher. As cute as they’re, canines are merely unpredictable. At a second’s discover (and particularly in unfamiliar settings), they’ll begin yelping, cease to alleviate themselves, or get spooked and run off.

It’s additionally price noting that the canine at your wedding ceremony ought to by no means outshine the bride and groom who must be entrance and middle — not Fido!

Canines, cats, and even horses could be great, memorable additions to a marriage — and with correct planning, together with your pet received’t go away you feeling such as you’re within the doghouse in your huge day.
