Got your heart set on including your dog in your wedding day? Nope, you're not barking mad - and yes, it can be done!
#1 First of all: make sure they're suitably attired for the occasion
Whether it's a Yorkie in a tiny tux or a Labrador adorned with a wreath of flowers - there are endless ways to transform your dog from pet to guest of honour. Just make sure they're comfortable - if they're sneezing or scratching or struggling to walk comfortably, remove their accessories ASAP.
#2 Get them to walk down the aisle with you
Once they've accompanied you to the altar, make sure your beloved pooch has a priority seat in the front row (or by your feet).
#3 Or alternatively, pair them up with your bridal party
Imagine the 'aw' factor of your dog walking down the aisle alongside your flower girls. We. Can't. Even.

#4 Enlist them as ring bearer
Because there's arguably nothing more adorable than the sight of a four-legged friend presenting the bride and groom with their wedding bands! See how one real-life couple turned the moment into a hilarious video opportunity here.
#5 Involve them in your wedding photos
#6 Get them to film your wedding
No, really. Here's how this couple did it.
#7 Include them in your custom-made cake-topper
You come as a pack - so if you're having a unique topper created for your wedding cake, make sure they're included in it!
Oh, and of course...
Make sure you enlist the help of a (reliable) member of your bridal party to keep a close eye on your dog. You don't want him or her to eat something it shouldn't, or wander off and get lost.
