It’s more AFFORDABLE. Serving cannabis flower instead of alcohol to a wedding of 100 guests could save the happy couple $5,000 according to one study cited by the news site Mic. Adding concentrates or edibles to the equation can drive the price up a bit—but it’ll still be cheaper than an open bar tab.
It INSPIRES perkier spirits. It’s no secret that cannabis instills the chill at any gathering. Swilling booze, on the other hand, can lead to a more sordid affair. Fortunately, weddings that offer both cannabis and alcohol can reasonably expect a drama-free reception, as supported by a 2016 study from the Netherlands showing cannabis not only calms regular cannabis consumers, it does the same thing for drinkers, too.
It looks SUAVE. Cannabis can be presented in all sorts of creatively luxuriant ways. Skilled budtenders can shape joints into tulips, bouquets can include lush cannabis crowns, and infused desserts can take an unlimited array of forms—elevating truffles, cupcakes, macarons, and crème brûlées. Oh my indeed.
It SOLIDIFIES “I do.” Start forever on a high note. Couples who smoke cannabis have a better shot at a happier marriage. Researchers from Yale and Rutgers discovered in 2014 that married couples where one or both partners regularly got elevated were far more peaceable than married couples where neither spouse got lit.
