Weed weddings: Calgary hosts Canada’s first cannabis wedding expo


WATCH: Couples got the chance to see how they can integrate cannabis into their nuptials at Saturday’s expo in Calgary. Michael King reports.

Brides and grooms looking to add a little extra greenery to their nuptials had a chance to check out the newest trends at Calgary’s first-ever cannabis wedding expo on Saturday.

Since cannabis was legalized in Canada, wedding vendors say they’ve been inundated with couples wanting to highlight the plant throughout their special day.

Laureen Cauryn Cameron, the organizer of the Canadian Cannabis Wedding Expo, said many couples are curious about what a cannabis wedding entails.

“There are more ways of incorporating it than just smoking it,” said Cauryn Cameron. “You can do it aesthetically in the flowers, you can have it as a wedding favour.”

Natalia Chiles helps couples extend the cannabis theme by planning stagettes and honeymoons.

“It can be anything from adding a few drops of CBD oil, which is non-psychoactive, into your tea or smoking up a cannabis cigar,” Chiles said. “There are different alternatives to what people can think of as a cannabis wedding.”
