Children and puppies

One of the unusual perks of my venue is that it allows dogs on-site—in fact, it has two resident dogs! And you do realize what that means, don't you? More time with the Chelster!

Chelsea doesn't like to have her picture taken

Chelsea is pretty much one of my favorite living things, and we could actually bring Chelsea to the wedding! Even though we won't have children at our wedding (mostly because there are no children in our families yet), we could, in fact, have a ring-bearer! Or maybe she should be a flower girl? Of course, it would be a ring-bearer (or flower girl) who walked half-sideways, and would probably try to jump on my dress during the ceremony, and might bark at anyone who didn't want her affectionate attention, but still!

Chelsea refuses to face the camera unless I first face the wrath

Or... maybe not. Maybe a hyperactive, excited and excitable, black long-haired dog isn't the best wedding guest. And maybe some of our guests would be offended by an animal participating in the ceremony, or trying to jump on them from the aisle. ;) But a girl can dream, can't she?

It's an ongoing debate around these parts. Mostly, I debate and Mr. Spaniel says, "whatever you want." There is one thing I am certain of, though: if Chelsea attends our wedding, Chelsea is going to be dressed for it. ;) I wouldn't want to embarrass her by putting her in an actual dress, but a fancy bow (in our wedding colors!) and garden roses along her collar? Yes, please! I've even found some cute wedding-themed doggie leashes in my search!

Did you incorporate animals into your wedding at all? Did you wish you could?

  1. I just went to a wedding where their dog joined them on when they exited the church and it was so cute! I say go for it!
