Dogs are often our first children and how could you not want them at your wedding

For some of us, dogs are the only children we have, because something tells me that taking care of even the most destructive of doggos is easier than most kids.

They can attend as guests, or they can be given a special job. Bear was Ryan and Chelsea’s ring bearer, because who better than a loyal friend to deliver your wedding rings to you?

Also, weddings are a great reason to get all dulled up, for everyone! From getting a good trim and shampoo to renting the fanciest tux you can find, everyone looks fantastic in wedding photos and that certainly extends to your dog-children.

You gotta look fly AF for those wedding portraits, especially if you’re the star! And face it, the dog is the star of ANY photo. 

Barkley is the best doggo; she knew exactly how to walk down the aisle. Thanks Sachin Khona for the photo!

Sometimes venues aren’t flexible with their pet policy (those damn health inspectors, messing with our lives) so other ways you can include your pupper in your wedding day are have them in your engagement photos or bring them by for your first look shots.

Regardless of how you include them, you know on this most special of days, your beloved dog is in your head as you promise your life to another human being because you know you’ve already promised your life to your REAL bff. 

Bear did her job SO well! And she made sure the rings wouldn’t fall off so dad took a few seconds to untie. Thanks Jessica Luch Photography!

So, from having them in your wedding as the best doggo

to flying them all the way from NYC to Vancouver BC so that you can get some loving in before you see your beau,

to including them in the family portrait that you have all your guests sign, include your dog in your wedding in some special way, because you are their life and let’s face it, they are yours!
