As societal attitudes toward cannabis continue to evolve, more couples are looking for unique ways to incorporate marijuana into their special day. From symbolic gestures to experiential elements, incorporating cannabis into your wedding celebration can add a touch of personalization and relaxation. In this post, we’ll explore some creative, classy, (and responsible) ways to include cannabis in your wedding day, ensuring a memorable and meaningful experience for you and your guests.

One of the primary reasons why couples are choosing to include cannabis instead of alcohol in their wedding celebrations is the desire to create a more unique and personalized experience. While alcohol has traditionally been the go-to choice for weddings and celebrations, cannabis offers an alternative that aligns with the changing preferences and values of many couples. Cannabis provides an opportunity to create a more relaxed and intimate atmosphere, where guests can engage in conversation, connect on a deeper level, and enjoy a different type of social experience. Moreover, cannabis is often associated with health and wellness, making it an appealing choice for couples who prioritize a more mindful and conscious approach to their wedding day. By opting for cannabis instead of alcohol, couples can also cater to guests who may not consume alcohol due to personal preferences, health reasons, or cultural considerations, ensuring that everyone feels included and comfortable during the celebration.

If you’re thinking about including cannabis in your celebration, here are some ways to keep it chic and classy, and avoid any in-your-face Cheech and Chong, Grateful Dead vibes.

Cannabis-Inspired Florals:

One of the easiest ways to infuse cannabis into your wedding day is through florals. Consider incorporating subtle cannabis elements into bouquets, boutonnieres, or corsages, such as adding small cannabis leaves or buds alongside your chosen flowers.

Bunches of green hydrangea can give the look of bud flower without being too over-the-top.

Alternatively, you could use cannabis-themed accessories like custom-made centerpieces, bud vases, or even jars filled with cannabis flowers to add a unique touch to your space.

Staying with a neutral color palette and incorporating natural textures makes tablescapes feel fresh and inviting.

Cannabis Wedding Favors:

Express your appreciation to your guests by gifting them cannabis-inspired wedding favors. Consider providing small jars of CBD-infused candies, personalized cannabis-infused chocolates, or even a pre-rolled joint. Just make sure all packaging and labeling adhere to legal requirements.

A pre-rolled joint from North Dispensaries is dedicated placed on a single orchid at each place setting for guests to enjoy. Additional pre-rolled joints are displayed in matching smoked grey glassware around the cannabis lounge area and bud bar.

Cannabis Ceremony Rituals:

Infuse your wedding ceremony with cannabis-inspired rituals that hold personal significance for you and your partner. For instance, you could create a unity joint, where both partners take turns lighting a joint or a cannabis-infused candle as a symbolic gesture of unity and shared experiences. Alternatively, you could incorporate a cannabis blessing ritual, where a close friend or family member offers a heartfelt blessing while wafting the aroma of burning cannabis.

Cannabis Lounge or Bar:

Create a dedicated cannabis lounge or bar area where guests can relax and enjoy various cannabis products responsibly. Partner with a reputable cannabis vendor (like local dispensary North) to curate a selection of cannabis strains, edibles, or even pre-rolled joints for your guests to enjoy during the reception. Ensure that the area is well-ventilated, clearly designated, and abides by local laws and regulations regarding cannabis consumption. Outdoor venues work best for Cannabis Lounges and Bars.

A Budtender will be able to answer guests’ questions, and guide them through their experience, particularly if they might be new to cannabis use.

Having a reputable Budtender and going through a knowledgable local dispensary will help you navigate laws and regulations, as well as select the best cannabis products for your celebration.

Fighting Stigmas Around Cannabis Use:

Despite shifting attitudes and evolving laws surrounding cannabis, stigmas persist around its use. Historically, cannabis has been associated with negative stereotypes and misconceptions, often portraying users as lazy, unmotivated, or lacking ambition. These stigmas have been fueled by decades of prohibition, propaganda, and misinformation. However, as scientific research and public awareness grow, it is becoming increasingly clear these stigmas are completely unfounded. Cannabis has shown potential as a therapeutic substance and has been embraced by individuals seeking alternative forms of relaxation, pain management, and wellness. It is crucial to challenge these stigmas and foster open and informed conversations about cannabis, its potential benefits, responsible use, and the importance of individual choice and autonomy. By promoting education and understanding, we can work towards dismantling stigmas and fostering a more inclusive and accepting society.

Incorporating cannabis into your wedding day can be an exciting way to personalize your celebration and create lasting memories. By incorporating cannabis-themed decor, favors, rituals, or designated lounges, you can provide a unique and inclusive experience for you and your guests. Remember to prioritize responsible consumption, provide alternatives for those who prefer not to partake, and ensure compliance with local laws. Embrace the green and let cannabis enhance your wedding day in a meaningful and memorable way.
