Since marijuana is legal in many US states, more individuals are using it in a regulated manner. Even, people are incorporating it into their special occasions such as weddings. In fact, marijuana is a good alternative to alcohol. We all have heard the stories of drunken uncles.
So now that unconventional weddings are all the rage, how does one host a perfect cannabis wedding? Let’s discuss.
Planning For a Marijuana Wedding
When planning for a cannabis wedding, you should consider many things. The most common is—cannabis isn’t legal countrywide, is it okay to host the canna wedding?
Medical marijuana is legal in over 30 states now. In a cannabis legalized state, you require recs signed by medical marijuana doctors to access the herb from licensed dispensaries. However, recreational marijuana is legal in some states and residents can incorporate cannabis in various events there.
Cannabis laws vary from state to state. So, it’s important to check the local laws carefully. After that, next is to make a list of attendees. I know you may have many friends who will get offended for not inviting them to your wedding. It’s important to consider your guests and how to serve marijuana in the event.
Consider The Venue
This is an important decision. You need to select the venue considering the cannabis laws. For instance, in California, Prop 64 regulations say that you are allowed to enjoy cannabis in a private setting. That means, you must host your event at home. If that’s the case, make sure you have enough space to accommodate all your guests.
If your house isn’t large enough, ask a friend to give up his/her yard for your wedding event. However, you should have an open discussion with your friend related to serving marijuana to your guests.
Make Your Guest List
Your wedding event is incomplete without your loved ones. So, when making plans for the wedding venue, consider your guests. Of course, you might have some guests who might not be comfortable with smoking cannabis. But, that doesn’t mean, you should change your plans. You can have a designated area for those who don’t smoke or prefer exposing to second-hand smoke.
During wedding planning, you often get too busy that you forget to invite some closed ones. So, I suggest you write down the names of all the guests in your notebook at least 20 days before the wedding day.
Ask For Permissions
Asking for permissions is necessary before you finally book the wedding venue. Have an open discussion session with your wedding planner if you are allowed to have marijuana in your wedding event. Even if cannabis is legal in your state, you should consider asking them.
Moreover, you should discuss your canna wedding plans with other vendors. The guy who will be behind the camera on the big day needs to make plans to capture special things and people having fun properly.
Hire a Budtender
When planning for your canna wedding, you should consider hiring a budtender. Why is this necessary when you are going to have bartenders doing the same job? A budtender is a cannabis expert who will watch over the canna bar, ensuring people are getting what they can handle. Additionally, he/she will answer the common questions from guests, “can I mix cocktails with joints”, “right dosage according to my age”, etc. And, suggest specific strains to your guests, especially those who haven’t smoked marijuana before.
Covering it up, when planning a canna wedding, you need to consider various things. Check the local cannabis laws to know what your state allows. Do ensure that you consult medical marijuana doctors before you begin lest you make the wrong arrangements. Make a list of attendees. Choose the venue with enough space to accommodate all your guests. Have an open discussion regarding incorporating cannabis into your wedding with your event planner, photographers, etc. so that they can make arrangements accordingly.
