She Mail: Bride & Groom Disagree Over Dog In Wedding
Julie Fisk is here to help. If you’ve need advice or want us to hash out a problem on the air for you, let Julie share some of her wisdom.
My fiance and I are in the process of planning our wedding, and we are having so much fun. Well, out of the blue, my fiance decides he wants his St. Bernard Cooper to be the ring bearer. This dog is old, though. He had the dog growing up and it still lives with his parents. Now, I get that he loves Cooper, but this thing slobbers all over the place and smells and I just don’t like the idea of him being in our wedding.
I don’t know quite how to tell my fiance, and now my maid of honor is telling me that I’m being a jerk. So, do i keep my mouth shut and deal with it, or do I tell my fiance to leave the dog at home?

Dear Turner & Smooch,
You might have to give in and allow the dog to be in the wedding. The wedding is as much about your groom as it is about you, and it would mean a great deal to your future husband to have his dog as a part of the ceremony. I suspect that you will feel bad if you say no to the dog. It’s true that by having the dog in the wedding, things might go wrong. The dog might run off, scratch himself, drool on your dress, stink up the room, or one of many other things that could go wrong. The thing is, it is those imperfections that will make your day special. You’ll remember in 20 years how the dog stole the show as you tell your children about your wedding day. If you are concerned about the dog, you should talk to you fiance. That way, you both can work together to minimize any dog-related disasters on your wedding day. Good luck!
