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.

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.
