Many places of worship do not allow pets inside the venue. In cases like this have a family member or friend bring him to the reception, that way he is free to run around and play. If your reception is being held outside, this can be the perfect photo opportunity to snap any photos of children playing with your pet. One of my favorite moments ever was seeing my nephew and niece run around in their best dressed clothes playing with my brothers dog Mia, it made my heart so happy and ended up with the best photos!
