We’re sure your dog is precious and oh-so-lovable, so if you bring them to your wedding, you might just feel happier and smile bigger–and who wants that on their wedding day, anyways? Here’s a few reasons why you should definitely disinvite your four-legged friend to your wedding (wink wink).
Because everyone will be staring at them in your stunning wedding portrait.
We love that Morgan and Kevin’s dog, Little Guy, was present for their proposal as well as their wedding day, especially because he’s So. Ridiculously. Adorable.
They’ll try to one-up your flower girl.
At Kathryn Flynn and John Windsor’s wedding, it was an all-too-adorable moment when the flower girl walked the dog down the aisle.
Their overwhelming cuteness will distract you while you’re trying to get ready.
While Rochelle Scott prepared for her wedding to Sean McMahon, this cute pooch chilled nearby.
Or keep your bridesmaids too busy to get dressed.
Because playing with a dog, as Aileen Legg did before her wedding to Lloyd Bayliss, is so much more fun than putting on makeup.
They’ll wear a bow tie just as well as you do.
We love that Adrienne Gutierrez and Jeff Bitter look so elegant and in love in their wedding portrait, while their pooch–in a bow tie!–is expertly deadpanning the camera.
And don’t even get them started with a tux.
The shirt! The bowtie! The jacket! This doggy tuxedo worn at Emily Brooks and Max Kuller’s wedding is killing us.
Or a little white ensemble.
Looks like the bride wasn’t the only one ready to go down the aisle at Teresa and Mark Del Rosso’s wedding.
They’ll try to get in on the kissing.
As you can see from Mary Calomiris and Hi-Woon David Kang’s wedding, a quick lick to the face from cuddly pup can really interrupt a photo.
They’ll wear a flashy outfit for attention.
With a pink cardigan and pink flower collar, this pup was the perfect accent for Caitlin Dean and Todd King’s pretty-in-pink wedding.
Or worse, try to wear white.
Sometimes, it’s okay if the bride isn’t the only one wearing white, especially when it’s this spunky pooch at Caitlin and Adam Mattina’s wedding.
They won’t let you put them down–even if you really need to go get married now.
If every day starts with a snuggle with your dog, why should your wedding day be any different? We love that Megan Magee took a moment to cuddle with this cutie on the day of her wedding to Jimmy Roberts.
They’ll steal the show at the ceremony.
This French bulldog was so adorable it caught the eye of the photographer during Scott Lombardi and Jessica Bejm’s wedding.
They’ll make your smile huge.
Because when your dog is in a tutu, like this one was at Emily Ngo and Jimmy Chen’s wedding, you’re bound to be all smiles.
They’ll demand to be included in your family portraits.
Because dogs can be family, too, as seen in Whitney Pinsonand Jonathan Herwig’s wedding.
Because they think the more, the merrier.
And, okay, we think the more, the merrier too, especially since Walt Wong and Nicole Lina met at a dog park, so it was only fitting that their pups had a place at their wedding.
