  1. Sorry, but we just can't resist rounding up our favorite pictures of animals attending weddings. We get new ones every day, and they're just way too cute not to share. Whether it's Burrito the donkey who loves cheesing for the camera at Arizona weddings, Spicy, the pup who walked with a human ring bearer down the ceremony aisle, or Rosie the bunny who wished she could rock her wedding floral collar every day, animals who attend weddings in people clothes are probably one of the cutest things out there.

    So here are the 12 best-dressed animals from our real weddings gallery, in no particular order.

    ​Jennifer and Jeremy's rescue dogs, Kote and Otis were also given a special part in the ceremony. “Everyone knows how much we love our rescue dogs, they are like our children,” says Jennifer. The dogs were walked down the aisle so each could be kissed by Jeremy. “It was a sweet moment that we will always cherish,” says Jennifer.
