For a lot of us cannabis is just a normal part of life. I couldn't imagine it not being part of my special day. There's a ton of information out there on weddings, and wedding planning. Here are some things to consider when planning a 420 wedding.
First things first, make sure you know the rules. Even though cannabis is legal in Canada, provinces and municipalities set the rules. Check the following link to find your province and the regulations.
Once you've done that make sure to check your local bylaws.
The United States of American also has laws specific to each state as well. Check the following link to find your state and the legality of cannabis. Make sure to check your local regulations.
Adding flower to your wedding is easy. Apart from smoking it, it can be used in decor and bouquets. The following pictures will give you some ideas for decorating. It can be absolutely stunning if done right.
Next consider how you and your guest will consume. Make sure your wedding venue allows smoking. Some venues may have designated smoking areas while some may not permit smoking on the property at all. Perhaps edibles are the way to go.
Let's look at edibles first. I like the idea of serving a completely infused meal, however that may be impractical for a large wedding, or one where not everyone is consuming. Another thing you also have to consider dosing, not everyone has the same tolerance.
Using infused condiments is an easy way to allow people to dose themselves.
Appetizers are also another option. Edibles take anywhere from 30 min to 2 hours to kick in. A lit start to any evening. Talk to a chef and see what they can do for you.
When most people think of edibles, they think sweets. This is also another great way to incorporate cannabis into your celebration. Add a lit dessert table or an infused candy bar. Try a toast with some cannabis infused wine.
Getting lit. You can go the full mile and hire a budtender. Or you can use bongs as centerpieces, favor bags full of accessories and a self serve bud bar, it's up to you.

Don't forget pre-wedding festivities. Another great place to incorporate your love of cannabis. Have a cannabis themed bridal shower or 420 themed bridesmaids and groomsmen gifts.
