Pet-Friendly Tampa Bay Wedding Venues | Fairytail Pet Care

Pets are family, and we get that. So when you imagine your Tampa Bay wedding day, it’s hard to picture such a special moment without your best friend at your side! Including your pet in your wedding can seem like a challenging, stressful experience, but it doesn’t have to be! Making sure you choose the right venue (and hire the right help) can make all the difference!

Whether they’re going to be the ring bearer, the flower girl or simply be in your portraits, your pet needs to be happy and comfortable and have a designated handler the day of your wedding. Understanding your wedding venue’s rules is crucial, since some won’t allow pets on the premises.

Luckily, finding a pet-friendly Tampa Bay wedding venue isn’t as hard as you think. In fact, you’ll probably find it difficult to narrow down the options! We’ve enlisted the expertise of wedding pet planners Fairytail Pet Care to share their favorite wedding venues to work with. Not only do these locations welcome pets, but they love them and go out of their way to accommodate their needs!
