Here are some good tips to remember when having your dog in the wedding,

Have realistic expectations of how your dog will behave.  Mine would be a nutcase and there is no way he could be a part of that big day unless he was on my lap the entire time or guarding me and he is just a little Chihuahua MinPin … that explains it!   Make sure to hire a pet sitter for that day.  You want your pet to be comfortable and he or she might not be feel safe away from you and around a lot of people (strangers).  Also, don’t put that task on someone who is enjoying your wedding day!  Check with your venue and make sure they will allow pets. You might want to make sure your furry friend doesn’t eat any unusual food in the days leading up to the wedding so you don’t have any surprises down the aisle!  You wouldn’t want that in the photos!!  ha ha …  For more advice, follow this link!
