When marijuana became legal in states across America many were nervous about what would happen. The drug had been illegal for so long that many feared reintroducing it in a legal way would result in more people on drugs, more people trying heavier drugs, and increased rates of crime. That didn’t happen. As you can expect crime rates went down (because having a small amount of marijuana was no longer illegal), people used the drug to treat illnesses, and there has been no significant correlation found between the legality of marijuana and an increase in the consumption of hard drugs. The government also earns a lot more tax money from the drug now and spends less on policing it. It was a clear win all around. There was one strange result that most people did not predict, the emergence of weed weddings.
Weed weddings are exactly like they sound, they are weddings that incorporate the use of marijuana in states where it is legal. The amount and way marijuana is used vary greatly depending on those getting married but it is growing strongly in popularity. There are those who are only occasional users of the drug and decided to have a bud bar located somewhere in the venue outside the main hall so that anyone who wishes can go and have a smoke. There are those who are more into their marijuana and have the bud bar in the main hall and have some buds as part of the flower arrangement. Of course, there are also extreme fans who take it to the next level. Wedding experts have seen weddings where the dress was made out of hemp, where before the couple shared the first kiss they shared the first toke from a dual opening pipe and the list goes on.
In fact, the popularity of weddings focused on weed has grown so much that now there are full businesses being set up simply to cater to the weed needs of a wedding. Colorado was one of the first states to see these specialist services take place as marijuana became legal there. We spoke to one marijuana wedding expert in the Colorado market. She offers a full-service weed wedding for $3,000 but can also cater to a lower dollar plan for $420. If you choose the appropriately priced $420 plan you will have an officiant, a photographer, and a dinner reservation as well as a full marijuana service. Even for the low price of $50-$100 an hour you can have a Best Bud who will be on hand to cater to your every marijuana need.
While the business started slow it is growing quickly. Initially, our expert found that many venues didn’t want to be involved in hosting a marijuana service but when demand started to increase the marijuana wedding service was receiving numerous calls from vendors asking to be on the preferred list as they realized this was market about to grow quickly.
While the idea of a marijuana wedding still sounds a little strange, it is not that different from having a bar serving alcoholic drinks. In fact, many fans of the service say it is a lot safer. If you are having your wedding you want to have the perfect day. The last thing you want is someone drinking too much and making a fool of themselves. There is always a high risk of this at weddings and we likely all know a time when it has happened. With marijuana, there is no risk of overdosing and the worst thing that could happen is if someone eats the cake because they got a bad case of the munchies.
