At the Hotel Fort Canning, dogs are included in your wedding when you consult their wedding planning committee. There is a special entrance to the solemnization venue for the dogs to go through, and they are taken away once the solemnization ceremony ends. Finished in 1926, Hotel Fort Canning was originally the administrative building of the British military’s Far East Command headquarters. This heritage-edifice was then restored and turned into the award-winning hotel that is known today, and it is the ideal place to have a wedding that includes your dogs. For a fee, Hotel Fort Canning can help you and your spouse with your pet transportation arrangements.

This high-end hotel is a beautiful wedding location, and they also allow dogs to attend them. They allow pets in public areas and in guest rooms (this does not include service animals), but they will gladly make an exception if you want your dog to do the wedding march with you. The only condition is that you, or someone else, has to hold the dog, and your pets can’t stay in the function area without human supervision. If you need a dog-sitter, you can make arrangements with the hotel concierge beforehand. If you need rooms for your dogs, you can make arrangements, and the Regent will provide rooms with beds and bowls for them. You should note that dogs heavier than 7kg attract additional charges, and the dogs have to be litter-trained.

These venues are some of the places you can go to if you want a wedding with your entire family present, including your canine family. Some of them may be pricey, and some may have stringent rules about keeping your dogs leashed or having to carry them around, or where the dogs can and cannot go: but once you have all these rules in mind, and you arrange with the in house wedding planning committees beforehand, you will have the wedding of your dreams, your best friends in tow.
