A Well-Spent Expense
Floral arrangements are already an expensive addition to any wedding, but the fact that they get thrown away at the end of the day is no bueno. Instead of allowing the centerpieces to go to waste, adding some cannabis artfully to them engages the audience attending the wedding. They’ll take better notice and admire their table’s centerpiece, as well as be excited to take a piece of it with them once the wedding is over. You’re happy, they’re happy.
Diverse Color Arrangements
The emerald of cannabis leaves and the cool shades of its indica flowers leave a wide array of floral arrangements open for the bride and groom to choose from. Such colors can help create or adorn vivid floral palettes. The best thing about adding cannabis to floral arrangements is that not much is needed to make a statement; a well-placed leaf or a few small nugs can make all the difference.
The Bouquet to Jump For
As the tradition goes, most brides enjoy throwing their bouquet over their shoulder towards the single ladies before leaving with the groom. Whoever catches it will be rumored to get married next, and gets to keep the bouquet for luck. Some brides choose to have two bouquets - one to keep and one to throw. The choice is the bride’s, but including cannabis in the bouquet will surely cause lady tokers to jump a little higher.
Pack a Boutonniere Bowl
As the reception kicks off and socializing ensues, boutonnieres that include cannabis can provide an empty bowl a quick fix for anyone wearing it. Imagine looking back at photos of your special day and remembering just how dank that bud in your pocket was. Now the boutonnieres won’t go to waste.
Cannabis Florists on the Rise
Since 2014 when recreational was legalized in Washington and Colorado, only a few wedding florists have sprouted since cannabis weddings were illegal unless everyone attending that smoked had a medical card. However, the demand for weddings to include cannabis is steadily rising as the concept becomes normalized and grows in popularity. Canna-florists are now profiting more than ever from their venture, and the industry will soon be needing more.
