2 precious pups were chosen to be a best-man and maid-of-honor

Instead of choosing from your many friends to be in your wedding party, why not stick to man’s best friend?

Emma-Leigh and Shane Matthews, a couple from Cumbria, England, had the fluffiest best man and maid of honor for their special day. The newlyweds chose their dogs, Niko and Phil, to be in their July wedding and it was absolutely precious.

The doggos both wore fancy collars, Niko in a sweet floral arrangement and Phil with a dapper bow-tie.

Possibly the cutest bridesmaid and groomsman of all time?

Emma-Leigh told Mashable that her idea to have Niko and Phil in the party was a no-brainer, “My dogs are my children, I treat them as such. You wouldn’t get married without your kids. There was never a question of marrying Shane without them there.” Luckily, they were able to find a historic mansion that allowed their two malamutes to be a part of their big day.

The best man, Phil, even doubled as a videographer by wearing a GoPro on his collar.

It may come as no surprise, but the two of them absolutely stole the show, “Guests just wanted selfies with the Insta-famous dogs! Didn’t need a photo booth.”

The couple also has a cat named Milo, but the venue had a strict dogs-only policy.

Ah well, Milo would have been a very handsome addition to the party.

Emma-Leigh told us that Niko and Phil had an awesome time, “They loved it! They were getting so much attention and the hotel had such massive grounds for then to play in.”

Honestly, when in doubt just add dogs. Everything is better with dogs.
