Try a Cannabis Bar if You’re Looking for Something Unique at Your Wedding

If you’ve always been the type to prefer cannabis over alcohol, then consider incorporating it into what will be one of the biggest days of your life, your wedding day!

Due to the influx of states rushing to legalize recreational cannabis, flower bars are becoming an increasingly popular option. So popular in fact, that there is an entire expo dedicated to cannabis-themed weddings. 

Take John Elledge and Whitney Alexander for instance, an Oregon couple who opted for a “weed tent” instead of the conventional open alcohol bar. In this particular situation you would need to choose, you can either have a bud bar or a liquor bar at an event, but not both.

Although it’s illegal for cannabis and alcohol to be distributed at the same event, there are ways around that. For example, the Elledge-Alexander union served limited alcohol selections – beer and wine only – in the main reception tent. 

The setup consisted of much more than just a large tent full of cannabis samples. There was an open bud bar with many top shelf strains to choose from, a variety of hand-blown pipes to use, transportation to and from the event, and an experienced budtender to help guests who were in need of a little guidance. The couple even arranged for water and snacks to be continuously supplied throughout the night; they seriosuly thought of everything!

The tent was located at a distance from the reception area, with the opening away from the crowd so the smoke wouldn’t bother them.

It’s really ingenious because everyone will have a lot of fun, albeit a more mellow type of fun, while diminishing the likelihood having to deal problems typically caused by overly intoxicated guests. The cannabis wedding industry is relatively new but booming.

So if you live in a legal state and would like to do something fun and unconventional for your wedding, consider contacting some local cannabis wedding planners to help make your special day even more magical!
