Weed Weddings Are The Latest Trend

Want some Holy Grail with your holy matrimony?

In this age of fast-paced wedding trends including beta-marriages, wedding hashtags, and er, mason jars, our friends in the green-friendly states have put their finger on a wedding practice that's more about chilling the fuck out. Weed weddings are predictably starting to gain ground in Colorado and Washington since legalization, because if you're going to incorporate the people you cherish the most on your special day, you sure as hell can incorporate the Kush you cherish the most.

Smoking up at a wedding isn't exactly the most ground-breaking act, but couples are really taking advantage of legalization: from bouquets and complementary boutonnieres speckled with buds and leaves to offering joints and mini-vaporizers as wedding favors, to cutting a pot-infused wedding cake. One Colorado couple even used small marijuana plants as a seating arrangement guide—instead of being labeled after famous composers or mountains peaks in Colorado, the tables were all named after different strains of weed.

As Lois Smith Brady writes in the New York Times (which by the way is currently running a six-part series of pro-legalization pieces accompanied by the MOST stoner-y interactive graphic), marijuana is starting to gain some ground as a legitimate addition to (and alternative to alcohol) in weddings:

Many pot enthusiasts think of alcohol as an old-fashioned, old-school toxin whose overuse can inflame family tensions and cause people to say horrible things, especially at weddings. In comparison, marijuana, they contend, is more like a tonic that calms people down and makes them like each other more rather than less — perfect for a wedding, they say.
Brady spoke with a couple who runs a bed and breakfast and hosted a weed-friendly wedding:

"Marijuana intoxication is full of positive emotion. People feel love and connection. Every single person cried at the wedding."
