While it’s okay to ask them to handle certain things for you, it’s important that you don’t abuse your power. Treat your groomsmen with respect and you’ll find that your friendships are even stronger after the wedding than they were before. Check out this list of things you shouldn’t say to your groomsmen.

Including your pet in your wedding party has become a popular trend these days. It has become so popular that there are even personalized bow ties, collars, leashes, and ring bearer pillows made especially for dogs. However, it’s important that you make sure your ceremony site allows pets before you decide to include them in your wedding party – or buy these adorable accessories. You might also want to talk with your bridal party and see who would be willing to walk your furry friend down the aisle – as much as we love our pets we don’t want to be distracted from saying our vows!
