Pet Friendly Weddings

Do you have a four-legged friend that you would like to include in your nuptials? Would you never consider leaving your pets out of your wedding ceremony? If so, the Currituck Outer Banks is the perfect place for your pet-friendly wedding.

Pet-friendly weddings are more popular than ever before with dogs and even cats playing roles as ring bearers, flower girls, and welcome hosts. With a little preparation, you can plan a wedding on the Currituck Outer Banks that is fun for your family, friends, and pets.

In Currituck County, dogs are welcome on the beach as long as they are leashed, and there is no length requirement for leashes. Cats are not required to wear leashes on Currituck beaches, but must not create a nuisance. While here, you can stay at The Inn at Corolla Light which offers a limited number of pet-friendly rooms for dogs less than 50 pounds for a $25 dollar per night fee, or you can rent a pet-friendly beach house from a local realty company. Before the ceremony, be sure to stop by Dognutz in Timbuck II in Corolla for some special treats for your furry friends.

If you want to make your wedding a true family affair, don't leave your well-loved pets at home. Bring your pets, family, and friends to the Currituck Outer Banks for a truly memorable wedding ceremony.

Tips to ensure your pet is comfortable on your big day:

Be sure to bring plenty of fresh water for your pets. Pets can easily become dehydrated on the beach and will need lots of water to ensure they are ready to participate in your wedding.

Hot sand, pavement, and asphalt can burn the pads on your dog's feet. Be sure to check the temperature of these surfaces before letting your dog walk on them.

Ask a family or wedding party member to be your pet-sitter on the big day so you will be able to get ready without worrying about your pet. Try to choose someone your pet is familiar with so they will feel comfortable during the day.

Bringing your pet's favorite toy or bedding along can help your dog feel secure in an unfamiliar place. Also be sure to bring plenty of dog treats, poop bags, and any other supplies you may need for your day to run smoothly.

Remember that ceremony décor and flowers can be choking hazards and/or toxic for your pets. Keep decorations out of your pets reach and be sure your sitter keeps a close eye on your pet throughout the day. Avoid giving your dog too much food or water prior to and during your ceremony. This will help to prevent unwanted accidents!

To ensure your guest's comfort, make an announcement about your pet's participation in the ceremony. Guests who have pet allergies may need to make arrangements beforehand.

Don't forget that pets make for great wedding photos. Be sure your photographer takes photos of the bride and groom with their pets.
