There's no doubt about it, having your pet in your wedding is super cute. But it's not always practical, especially if your venue won't allow it, you're having a destination wedding or if Fido's security dog instinct won't mix well in a crowd of guests. Even if your pet can't attend the wedding, they can still play a special role in your wedding day. From photobooth prop cardboard cutouts to custom pet cufflinks and even desserts in the shape of your pet, see some of our favorite creative ways you can include your pet in your wedding day below.
