Not sure if its a Southern thing, or just a thing in general, but for some couples, making sure their dog is present is almost as important as making sure Grandma is there.  We’ve had several couples include the family dog in the ceremony, and it always makes it a little more fun!  At one wedding, the dog was the greeter because he wasn’t allowed in the church!  Including the dog is such a fun way to make sure the whole family is present.
