Including cannabis at a wedding used to be unthinkable. However, as more states legalize the plant and more individuals profess their love for cannabis, it’s becoming more common.
Whoopi & Maya was founded to help people who menstruate have more comfortable periods, and we have been honored to hear about how our customers have incorporated our products into their daily routines and special events. Today, we’re sharing ten ways to include cannabis at your wedding.
How to Have Weed in Your Wedding
As long as you’re considerate of your guests, the wedding venue, and local laws, there’s no wrong way to incorporate cannabis into your special day. After all, cannabis is known to boost creativity, and the cannabis industry is all about shaking off norms.
1. Send Hemp Paper Wedding Invitations.
Make an excellent first impression and set your guests’ expectations high by sending out save-the-dates and invitations on hemp paper.
Hemp paper is potentially even more versatile than conventional paper. It can be smooth or textured, natural or colored, and it can be paired with different printing and stationary techniques to match any wedding theme.
Hemp paper is also more environmentally friendly than traditional paper made from trees. Choosing hemp paper can allow you to reduce the environmental impact of your wedding and celebrate the earth while you celebrate your love.
2. Decorate Your Wedding with Cannabis
As soon as they enter your venue, guests will be greeted with your chosen decorations. Using cannabis-inspired decor is a great way to tie your love of cannabis into your big day.
Hemp-inspired wedding decorations can be as subtle or bold as you want. If you want to keep things minimal, you could use a cannabis-inspired color palette, using shades of green and pops of color here and there. Add hemp fan leaves to your floral arrangements around the venue or even display flowers in pretty bongs on each table to make things a little more overt.
3. Wear a Hemp Wedding Dress or Hemp Suit
Hemp doesn’t just have to be for the invitations. Hemp fabric is a comfortable, eco-friendly choice for wedding dresses and suits.
Hemp can be used on its own or blended with other fibers to create versatile, show-stopping gowns and dresses for all styles, from 100% hemp sundresses for outdoorsy ceremonies or gowns made from a blend of silk and hemp for formal weddings.
No worries if you’re not wearing a dress to your wedding — hemp is also excellent for suits, jackets, or whatever you choose to wear on your special day.
4. Feature a Cannabis Bar at Your Wedding
Make cannabis a part of your reception, too, with a cannabis bar that offers flower, concentrates, and infused drinks and snacks.
Cannabis Bar Services offers mobile budtender services for weddings throughout California. Their trained budtenders will consult with you to create a cannabis menu and guide your guests through personalized, responsible cannabis experiences to ensure everyone has a great time at your wedding.
5. Host a 420-Friendly Wedding
If you want to host a cannabis-centric wedding, you must provide a place for guests to imbibe and relax.
If you offer flower, a designated cannabis smoking area will give guests a place to indulge without bothering wedding guests who aren’t interested in partaking.
Even if you are planning on only offering smokeless cannabis options to your guests, it’s still important to provide a place to relax. Comfy chairs with fun cannabis-themed props or decorations can be added to a smoking area, grouped around a mobile cannabis bar from Cannabis Bar Services, or scattered around the venue.
6. Serve a Cannabis-Infused Wedding Cake
Don’t forget about the cake! The food and drink you serve at your wedding can be another great way to infuse cannabis into the big day.
If an entire cannabis-infused wedding cake sounds like too much, you can always serve low-dose THC and CBD edibles separately and save the cake for when your guests are hungry. You can keep the theme consistent by adding cannabis-inspired decorations, like hemp-themed designs or botanical elements, like cannabis fan leaves or buds, on your wedding cake.
Chocolate treats made with Whoopi & Maya’s infused raw cocoa are always crowd-pleasers. If you prefer different flavors or hope to serve cannabis-infused drinks instead of edibles, Whoopi & Maya’s cannabis tincture has a mellow taste. It can be mixed with numerous other food and beverages for a subtly elevated snack.
7. Include Cannabis in Your Wedding Flowers
Including cannabis in your wedding bouquet, boutonnières, corsages, and any other floral pieces at the ceremony or reception can also be a great way to incorporate weed into your big day.
You can go big and carry a bouquet made entirely of cannabis flower or keep things a little more subtle with a beautifully-designed floral bouquet accented by fan leaves and buds. The same goes for the flowers carried and worn by the wedding party; more floral artists are adding cannabis and hemp to their arrangements, so you can find “flower” arrangements to suit whatever theme you choose.
8. Dance to Cannabis-Themed Music
A wedding is supposed to be a celebration, so chances are you and your guests will end up on the dancefloor. You can keep the cannabis theme going by including weed-themed tunes on your playlist.
Whether the newlyweds are dancing to The Beatles’ “Got to Get You Into My Life” or the whole wedding party is boogying to Rick James’ “Mary Jane,” including some pot-themed crowdpleasers on your wedding playlist is a great way to bring your loved ones together on the dancefloor.
9. Give Out Cannabis or Hemp Wedding Favors
At the end of your wedding, giving out small favors to your guests is a great way to thank them for coming and give them a souvenir to remember the event. If you are hosting a cannabis-centric wedding, why not include hemp or cannabis products in your wedding favors?
Whoopi & Maya has products that will be the perfect fit for any wedding favor, from chocolate to bath salts. Whoopi & Maya’s cannabis- and hemp-infused products are also great gifts for everyone in your wedding party to thank them for their hard work to make your day special.
10. Relax After the Big Day with a Weed-Infused Bath or Massage
You don’t have to stop celebrating cannabis or the love you share with your new spouse when the wedding ends.
Relax with your partner and do some much-needed self-care after socializing, dancing, and posing for pictures with a cannabis-infused bath or massage. Whoopi & Maya’s CBD bath salts will help you relax and recharge, and our topical CBD massage oil is moisturizing and luxurious, perfect to get your honeymoon off to a relaxing start.
How to Have a Weed-Themed Wedding
When planning a cannabis wedding, consider your guests’ preferences, local laws, and venue rules. Other than that, the sky is the limit!
Whether making infused food, offering cannabis products to your guests, or just enjoying cannabis yourself to take some of the stress out of your big day, Whoopi & Maya has products that will fit your needs. Best wishes on life’s next grand adventure!
