When a girl dreams of her wedding day, it usually includes all the people she loves the most in her life celebrating her big day. And for many couples, including their pets is super-important too. One woman, Jennifer Hindieh, took things a step further and ordered a matching wedding dress for her dog—a pit bull named Bailey.

Hindieh told the Dodo that she and her then-boyfriend, now-fiancé adopted Bailey when the pup was just five months old, and she instantly became part of their family. She was even there when Hindieh's fiancé popped the question. “We got engaged October 31 of 2018,” Hindieh said of the special moment. “It was very low-key—at home in the morning with Bailey on my lap while I was drinking coffee.”

When it came time for wedding planning, Hindieh decided that Bailey should be a part of the big day as well. The bride planned to walk down the aisle with both her dad and her pup—and, of course, Bailey would need a special outfit for the occasion too. (Like all wedding party members do!) Hindieh then found an Etsy shop called Coco and Bushka Couture and ordered a doggy wedding dress—which looks similar to the bride's own gorgeous gown. “I decided to get her a dress because honestly, she is my family, my baby and our life with her is what makes every day so special,” Hindieh said. “I don't know if I can ever have kids, but for me, she's like my kid.” You can see photos of Bailey in her white wedding dress here. (Trust us—they're super-adorable.)

The wedding will take place this coming September, and Bailey will even have a special mini dog-friendly wedding cake. Talk about woman's best friend—that's more special treatment than any bridesmaid's gift we've ever seen.
