If man's best friend happens to hold a special place in your heart, there is a chance you're considering whether or not it would be a good idea to incorporate your dog into your big day. There are, of course, pros and cons to involving your beloved pet in any aspect of your wedding, as they are much like very young children: special to you and adorable in every way, but they know not what they do, and can end up disrupting things.

However, if you decide that your canine would make the perfect ring bearer, flower girl, or greeter when you tie the knot, they're sure to please the photographers! 

Gain some inspiration for your furry friend with these 11 puppies all primped and ready to go on their owners' special days – some in miniature tuxedos, some with bridal accoutrement and accessories, and some with a simple loving look on their face that only dogs can have.
