Hands down, there's nothing better than a sweet fur baby making an appearance on your Big Day. So if your best friend happens to be an adorable pooch (or cat, or bird, or pig...), we're teaming up with The Westin Birmingham to run down a list of 5 ways to include your loves in the most important celebration of your life. Prepare for a cuteness overload below.
ONE: AS THE CUTEST BEST MAN OR MAID OF HONOR EVER
There's nothing cuter than a pet in a bow tie or floral crown, so when it comes to stealing the show (they will), let your sweetie shine as your Best Man or Maid of Honor. You'll love it, your guests will love it and it will most definitely go down in history as one of your fave wedding moments.

TWO: AS THE PERFECT FAVORS
Love your furry friend more than anything? Then be sure to pay tribute to them in every possible way. One of our faves? A cute little favor that also happens to be in the shape of their likeness. It's taking "puppy treats" to an entirely new level and your guests will appreciate the ode to your sweet little pooch.
