If you or anyone you know is planning on having, say, a four-legged flower girl or two (photo, left), here are some tips from www.Petfinder.com, the online database of adoptable pets:
1. Make sure your ceremony and reception locations allow pets before finalizing your plans.
2. Take photos with your dog before the wedding or on a different day. Animals can
sometimes be like children in photo sessions; they don't always have the best attention spans.
3. Do you have an "easily-excitable" pooch? Does your dog love table scraps? Many pets may
not handle large crowds and intense situations well. Know your pet before making the decision to include him or her in your special day. OR, of course, you can consider tailoring your wedding plans to fit your pet's needs!
