8 Pet-Friendly Wedding Venues You’ll Want to Book Immediately
Calling all four-legged ring bearers and furry flower pets—we’ve found eight wedding venues across the country that will not only let you bring your furry friend(s) to your wedding, but make sure they’re as welcome and pampered as your guests. Don’t believe us? Check out this roundup of pet-friendly wedding venues.
1. The Westin Cape Coral Resort at Marina Village
Where: Cape Coral, Florida
Thanks to the exclusive pet menu at The Westin Cape Coral Resort at Marina Village, your pets can enjoy indulgent reception entreés along with your guests. We’re talking filet mignon and veggies, followed by pet-approved desserts like berries and bacon. The hotel also offers a signature Heavenly Pet Treatment, which includes morning-after room service just for them.
2. Kapalua Bay Deck at Merriman’s Kapalua
Where: Maui, Hawaii
The exquisite seaside Kapalua Bay Deck at Merriman’s Kapalua lets you tie the knot with your pup in tow. Merriman’s Kapalua can be transformed in any way to accommodate wedding ceremonies, rehearsal dinners and daytime reservations, perfect for all wedding parties and guests—dogs and pups included.
3. Montage Palmetto Bluff
Where: Bluffton, South Carolina
The pet-friendly Montage Palmetto Bluff resort (nestled between Hilton Head, South Carolina, and Savannah, Georgia) will provide you with your very own canine ambassadors for your wedding. To be specific, you’ll have four adorable English Labrador retrievers—named River, May, New and Cooper—available to greet, hug and play with your guests. And, for an additional $1,000 donation to the local animal shelter, one of their pups can dress up in your wedding colors and serve as your ring bearer, flower girl or just mingle with your guests (and pose for pics, obviously).
4. Crowne Plaza HY36
Where: New York City, New York
The property of Crowne Plaza HY36 is completely pet friendly and offers you two spacious rooms for intimate nuptials (plus a brand-new beer garden coming soon). But the property’s real pièce de résistance is its own four-legged mascot, Wellington the Frenchie, which means your pet can make a new friend.
5. La Tourelle Resort & Spa
Where: Ithaca, New York
Situated in the breathtaking Finger Lakes region of New York, La Tourelle Resort & Spa is a dream destination for couples who want their doggo by their side all day. Boasting 70 acres of beautiful scenery, the property is both a puppy’s dream playground and a stunning spot to say “I do.”
6. W South Beach
Where: Miami Beach, Florida
W South Beach offers more than 10,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space that’s totally pet friendly. The hotel’s exclusive Pets Are Welcome Program (or PAW Program—how perfect is that?) is a custom-designed program to treat your (and your guests’) four-legged friends to luxurious extras. Your little guy will will receive a pet toy and treats when you arrive, a W Hotels pet tag, clean-up bags and more details about the hotel’s Whatever/Whenever pet services. Oh, and don’t forget its exclusive W Hotels pet beds, and food and water bowls.
7. Baker’s Cay Resort
Where: Key Largo, Florida
The soon-to-open Baker’s Cay Resort will feature beachside doggie bed as exclusive ceremony seating (yes, really) and custom pet bow ties for pups to be a part of the beachside ceremony. Hope your guests don’t mind feeling underdressed next to your dapper dog.
