Looking for ways to include your dog in your wedding ceremony? Whether you and your fiancé share a pet or you can't even dream of getting married in front of all your friends and family without your trusted childhood pet by your side, there are plenty of ways to include your pet in wedding. Just check out the sweet and creative ways these couples incorporated their dogs into their own big days.

With the Flower Girls (above): The couple's florist designed a double garland to decorate the dog's leash so that both flower girls could help walk the pup down the aisle.

With the Ring Bearers: If your pups are on the smaller side, recruit your ring bearers to carry them down the ceremony aisle.

Sign Bearer: Before you make your grand entrance, have your pooch walk down the aisle wearing a sign announcing your arrival.

Ceremony Processional: Instead of walking in separately, why not enter the ceremony arm-in-arm with your groom and your pets, together as a family?

With the Wedding Party: If your dog is up for it, have your pooch sit or stand up with the bridesmaids or groomsmen during the ceremony — that way, your guests will get a good look at your sweet pet.
