It pulls on the heartstrings of every pet owner, when the time comes to wave goodbye to your little fur baby, and go on vacation without them. No matter how nice their doggy retreat is, or […]
Imagine, waking up and opening your eyes that morning, on the most anticipated day you’ve had marked in your calendar since the engagement. Even though you weren’t able to sleep much through the excitement, you feel refreshed and ready. You lay on your side to see your second most prized companion (besides your almost-spouse) is […]
You are finally married and now it’s time for your long-awaited honeymoon. As you’re basking in the joys of planning your honeymoon, you may be asking yourself “What about our fur-baby?”. If you are like many of the couples that have included their pups in their picture-pawfect wedding, you may want to include your dog […]
The first thing to think about when planning your wedding is, ‘Who do I invite?’. You most likely have a list of, at least, a few people already planned. But, aren’t you forgetting someone? At that moment you pause, look down, and notice your dog looking at you with those huge puppy eyes of theirs. The face that just melts your heart. Of course, your dog can be involved and should be involved. Wedding dogs are always welcome! There are so many fun ways to include your dog in the wedding, click here for some ideas. Guess what, we also know the pawfect wedding dog care for you. Hint, hint!
Before you check out our list of pet friendly wedding venues in the keys, consider the following things:
Now, let’s take a look at some pawsome venues!
Always dreamt of that breezy beach wedding? Cheeca Lodge and Spa has an idyllic set-up for your Islamorada by-the-ocean wedding. Of course, your pup is invited. Their ‘Pups in Paradise’ program is pawfect for the wedding couple with a dog. Just remember to book the Gold View rooms as the others are off limits to dogs.
There are very few venues that are as pet-friendly as Baker’s Cay. When asked if they allow dogs, not only do they allow them, but they welcome both dogs and cats with open paws. Baker’s Cay lies on a 15 acre nature sanctuary nestled on a historic pineapple plantation. It’s beaches are surrounded by turquoise water that makes this a premier site for weddings. We think that Miss Mary Puppins would agree, and she personally told us to reserve a lounge chair for her.
The options are endless when it comes to Playa Largo resort. Whether you want a beach wedding overlooking the ocean, or an indoor function to get away from the heat, Playa Largo can accommodate you, your family, and your pupper. They have hotel rooms, small villas, and a team of wedding planners to make your day flawless.
This mid-century Key West gem has a charm all of its own. Surrounded by luscious gardens, it lends itself perfectly for your picture paw-tastic outdoor wedding. While dogs are allowed outside, they unfortunately are not welcome inside the venue. They can enjoy the fresh air of the Keys while being chaperoned by their trusted wedding pet sitter. During this time, you can explore what Fido cannot. This includes a gorgeous museum that you don’t want to miss. Without a doubt, this is one of the main benefits of having a wedding pet care company look after your furbaby during your big day.
Always dreamt of having a venue just for you and your guests? No interruptions and no uninvited stares? Well, Dream Bay Resort allows you to rent the entire resort for all your guests, including Miss Furbulous! I think your dog will agree that this could be a pawtastically fun venue, with their presence of course.
This venue prides itself for being a dog friendly hotel and venue in Marathon. Droolius Ceasar is sure going to love going to Sombrero beach with you as well. Just make sure you pack your sunscreen and enjoy the fresh sea breeze alongside your furbaby.
This resort is a low key nugget in paradise right on the ocean as well. Woofgang Puck will be able to join the festivities too but, remember to book the doggie friendly rooms so he can sleep at ease knowing he’s not breaking any rules.
Just off the Atlantic Ocean, this club is located along the crystal clear water shoreline of the Boca Chica Inlet. Stock Island Yacht Club & Marina offers a variety of spaces in order to make your wedding the most special day. Your dog is welcome to attend and walk down the aisle to the beat of their own drums. Being mostly outside, it makes for a great venue to enjoy your wedding under the stars.
In the heart of Key Largo, Oceans Key Resort will impress both you and your dog.Take a nice stroll around the marina or even try one of the fun water-activities. Just remember your dog’s life jacket. Safety first!
Sophisticated and stylish, this pet friendly venue might just leave you speechless. Fido is welcome here as well- but don’t forget to inquire about the pet policy. Only dogs 25lbs and under are allowed. Maybe for a special trick, they might make an exception.
Imagine yourself driving up to your wedding party by boat and all your guests ‘oohing’ and ‘ahhing’. This is possible at this beautiful Largo Resort. This venue has it all, including a picturesque stone pier that makes for great photo ops.
Recently renovated, the Bayside Inn Key Largo, is a small and rustic venue that will allow you to bring even your bigger furbabies.
This gorgeous venue does not disappoint but, unfortunately, only pets under 25lbs are allowed and are to never be left unattended. This makes planning a little more difficult but that’s why wedding pet handlers exist! They can help reduce any stress and let you enjoy the festivities.
Sail away in your thoughts in this stunning Key West hotel, close to the famous Duval street. Pet friendly for 2 dogs 30 pounds or less. Enjoy an assortment of pet-friendly Key West restaurants that will have you craving for more.
Low-key and rustic this little Brewery will have you and your family dancing all night. Let your dog have some fun too and join the festivities before, during, and after to make it an unforgettable night.
Weddings are all about you and what you want from your big day. Islamorada Fish Company lets your guests enjoy a nice meal and allows you to have your pawsome friend there by your side. Whether you want to hold a little party there or maybe have the rehearsal dinner there, this venue serves some great drinks.
If you have always dreamt of having your wedding in the keys, we admit, it is absolutely breath-taking. But, you may not know where to start. Consider hiring a specialized event planner that can guide you in the right direction and help you choose according to your budget and style. Blue Water Weddings is an event planner whose team has helped tons of couples in the keys to find their dream venue.
If you prefer just doing a tour yourself, we suggest deciding the amount of guests and budget first, and then start visiting venues. As for your dog, no worries, we have got you covered! Just be sure to book in advance, as our dog handlers are in high demand and we want to make sure your dog gets the Very Impawtant Pet treatment.
