Let’s face it if we have animals we are animal lovers. Those that don’t have animals might not understand how important it is for our pets to be part of the wedding. Plus they are so adorable. Once you get engaged the first thing you typically secure is your wedding venue, but you have to search for Maine pet-friendly wedding venues.

When beginning your search for the perfect pet-friendly wedding venue you can be pulled in several directions. You might end up searching webpage after webpage getting further lost in the process. Some wedding venues don’t have if they are pet-friendly listed on their website at all. I have compiled a list of Maine pet-friendly wedding venues for you to look at in one location. Know every link you click on allows pets to stay at the wedding and YES even take part in it. Don’t make the search complicated, check out these pet-friendly wedding venues and make life easier.

Your best bet is to find an outdoor wedding venue. Wedding tent rentals in Maine make it possible to host your gathering outside, where pets can be free.

16 Bay View-Camden Maine
Camden is such a beautiful small-town gem. Many people like to get married in the large park facing the harbor (stunning view by the way, with gorgeous sunsets).

However, if you aren’t looking for an outdoor wedding this hotel also hosts weddings in their banquet room. The best thing about having your wedding in Camden is you have a gorgeous indoor venue but you are within walking distance to some of the most stunning harbor and oceanside views. This hotel can accommodate you and your guests, the furry ones included, you can also wake up and enjoy the quaintness of the mom-and-pop shops and bakeries (amazing by the way).
