Recently we visited the Cannabis Wedding Expo, which was a gathering of vendors with a host of cannabis-implemented services. The focus was on complete wedding programs and not so much stoner fun. Wedding planning, catering, activities, and gifts were among the many services offered.
We very much appreciated the elegant way these companies implemented cannabis into their work. There were gorgeous vases converted into functional pipes for your centerpiece or smoking section. CBD massages or 420-friendly Drag Queen fun is available for your bachelorette party or bridal shower. Impressive flower arrangements varied from the eloquent traditional bouquets to exquisite cannabis flowers and decorations.
There were many samples of food to try, from snacks and hors d'oeuvres to masterpiece wedding cakes and feasts. The food we tried was absolutely delicious. Many medicated options were available too, from multiple-dose cakes to CBD-infused appetizers. One company, Cultivating Spirits, even offers cannabis paired dinners. One example of the main course was a “Bourbon and Orange Braised Pork Belly over Fennel, Sweet Onion, Apple and Pomegranate – Paired with Gorilla Glue.”
Overall, the event was focused strongly on weddings, receptions, parties and all of the events of matrimony. The subtle incorporation of cannabis was elegant and tasteful, and really shows how the cannabis community is more than just the stereotype. We also appreciated how products or cannabis never overshadowed the aspect of love and partnership. In the end, it was a lot of fun and informative, although a bit too crowded with press. We even got to leave with a goodie bag!
