Whether acting as the ring bearer, the official “flower dog”, or just being by the bride & groom’s sides on their big day, dogs are taking on the impossibly cute role of being themselves in weddings and we honestly cannot get enough of it. From donning doggy tuxes, to wearing canine flower crowns, it’s time to recognize that weddings are just better with dogs. After all, they are part of the family – how could we leave them out? Some couples have found impressively creative ways to capture these touching sentiments on camera, with doggy signs reading “I loved her first” and “I do too.” (Seriously, just pass the tissues now.)

We’ve rounded up 45 wedding photos with dogs that really take the cake.

If you are considering including your dog in your wedding, don’t forget to pin these for inspiration.

Disclaimer: they will probably (definitely) bring a tear to your eye.

My Valentine 🌹💕

Yes the day was about Bronw and Adam… but really when it came down to it… a lot of the day was all about @billy_border_collie

My own tiny wedding, where we said our vows in the rain so the dog could still be a guest. 📷@siouscaphoto
