From infused gourmet food to personalized vapes for the big day, meeting the expectations of a bud-loving bride means stepping up in terms of quality and sophistication. Fortunately, there are dozens of new and blooming companies dedicated to doing just that.
The Cannabis Wedding Expo Gives Businesses and Brides a Chance to Connect
Gone are the days where you have to step outside to sneak a toke. But what about enjoying a cannabis-infused ceremony privately with your family and friends? The Cannabis Wedding Expo is here to make that happen. What started in 2016 as a “fun and educational opportunity for couples and canna-businesses to come together,” has grown successively each year and expanded to include more cities, companies, and couples each year.
Co-founded by cannabis entrepreneur and philanthropist Philip Wolf, who also runs a sophisticated cannabis dining series, Cultivating Spirits, told reports he was inspired to launch the expos after experiencing resistance to weed-themed weddings. Curious about what kind of cannabis wedding you could have? The Cannabis Wedding Expo will visit Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Denver in January 2019.
Keep it Classy with My Bud Vase
Is that an antique vase or a bong? If you’re holding a My Bud Vase, the answer is both. Founded by Charleston native Doreen Sullivan, My Bud Vase has carved a name for itself in the cannabis industry and the wedding industry by providing women stunning pieces to smoke from and admire. Like many in the industry, the work of Sullivan is oriented around normalization and empowering cannabis smokers by giving them a classy, understated way to consume. Each piece comes with its own certificate and flower that is also a cleaning tool, making it a discreet option that doubles as a stunning centerpiece.
Infuse your dining experience with a bit of bud

With cannabis strain pairings and infused cocktails featuring flavored CBD tinctures, there are dozens of ways for ‘newly-weeded’ couples to celebrate their love of cannabis and each other.
