Cannabis is taking the wedding world by storm. From weed in the gift bags to cannabis bars joining the alcohol at the reception, couples are taking advantage of new acceptance of this famous plant by adding it to their celebrations. The trend is clearly gaining steam (or smoke?), as Cannabis Wedding Expos are now popping up all over both coasts. Last Saturday, for example, Los Angeles held their Cannabis Wedding Expo for high-flying brides and grooms, and a the organizers of this event are slated to hold another set of dates in Boston this October.

Previously held only on the West Coast and in spots like Vegas and Denver, where weed acceptance is more commonplace, they're excited to take their expo eastward. This particular expo has been around for several years now, and with the cultural attitudes toward cannabis changing more and more, it's only getting bigger.
With the growth of the industry, couples can incorporate cannabis into their weddings in uber-classy ways. No slouching around puffing on joints with hands painted in orange cheeto dust! More like elegant hemp wedding gowns, sophisticated extracts, cannabis flower and leaf bouquets, wedding stress-busting CBD tinctures, and handcrafted edible cakes to give your guests the option of something "special" from the dessert station.
