Cannabis and Colorado Mountain Weddings

Marijuana is legal in Colorado now, and I asked Colorado Cannabis Florist, Buds 'n Blossoms, a few questions in today's post, Peonies + Pot: Florist Uses Marijuana for Colorado Mountain Weddings. There's a time and a place for everything, so as long as you have your bases covered and have done your homework, there's an opportunity for guests and visitors to try and enjoy recreational marijuana. You can even visit a few different shops on your own, or ask us how we can set up a tour of breweries, restaurants, and cannabis dispensaries. You can't smoke in public and definitely not behind the wheel. Just like drinking, you need a sober driver at all times. Ask us how we can set up a shuttle and take care of that for you.

Floral Designs and Decor. That you can smoke later.

Floral designs are now being infused with cannabis and brides and grooms that enjoy the lifestyle might want to share some of these unusual elements with their guests that evening. I would say that that's a double whammy of being green, by recycling the decor for consumption and by supporting local Colorado ganjapreneurs. And one facet of the marijuana industry is the slowly emerging evidence and trends of how couples will enjoy cannabis on their day. Buds 'n Blossoms were excited about recent designs that "even had a bowl tied on one side, a lighter and rolling papers tied to the other side, a cannabis jar and cannabis included in the mini arrangements."

Question: How many cannabis weddings are you doing this summer?

- this is the first season of booking weddings and so far have at least 3 on the books for this summer

- I have done many holiday parties, MJ Investors meetings arrangements, bridal expos and private party arrangements

- we are still fighting the stigma and working with more venues to get them on board

Question: What should brides and grooms know about Cannabis and weddings?

- that they are legally protected under amendment 64

- there are so many ways to incorporate cannabis into their wedding or special event without the smell or clouds of smoke, there are many fun and discrete options as well!

- choosing the right venue opens all the doors to their true cannabis wedding experience

Question: What would say are the upcoming trends?

- I think that it will become more and more popular especially as it becomes more widely accepted

- some weddings are not having alcohol at their weddings, only cannabis

- keeping the scene under control thru moderation, similar to drink ticket idea, allowing guests to indulge without misusing or abusing cannabis

- cannabis themed weddings seem to be on a smaller scale than the traditional weddings. After all, cannabis is a little more costly than alcohol, but beautifully it takes less to get the job done

[Planning] Ideas for Dressing up the Aisle

We always love seeing brides inspiration for their aisle when they're planning their destination mountain wedding in Colorado with us. We'll sit down together in the Petal and Bean barn and share Pinterest boards of ideas and pull what we have from our shelves that  fit those pictures. The aisle never needs to be neglected at an outdoor mountain wedding and our brides agree with us. Here are some pin ready ideas for dressing up the aisle from some of our favorite weddings last summer. Go ahead and pin away! I know you want to. Contact us to learn more about how we can help plan your wedding, vow renewal or elopement.

This first aisle decor is a DIY idea. This was a wedding at Ten Mile Station at the beginning of the summer. Snow still covered the mountain peaks and this white arrangement with baby's breath was the perfect compliment to the surroundings.

A petal pathway cover the aisle before even the flower girl can get to it for an even more dramatic aisle. The blush small bouquet strung from the ceremony chairs went with the bride's colors and the bridesmaid's bouquets at this Silverthorne, Colorado wedding. Photo by Laura Lee Anderson Photography at the Ski Tip Lodge.

What about this idea? Petals for the guest to throw after you walk back down the aisle as a married couple. Also, the aisle was lined with petite white flowers in metallic planters. Photos by Trystan Photography at Dry Gulch Placer.

{ FLOWER MAVEN } Pincushion Protea + Oncidium Orchids // Heat Things Up in Deep Winter with a Tropical Bloom.

"I want a rustic organic look!"  Over the years, brides have expressed wanting to use more unusual flowers.  We have suggested using berries, pods and unusual greens to add an organic feeling to their wedding decor. Protea can add depth and texture to your mountain wedding decor. 

Some winter weddings look great in an all-white palette, or a frosty blue hue to reflect the pristine feel that comes with a snowy backdrop like a destination wedding in Breckenridge.  However, there are no rules any more and if you want to try something new and unusual, then we suggest exploring unusual and non-traditional wedding flowers, including the tropical blooms featured here, the Pincushion Protea and the Oncidium Orchid.

How would you use these in a winter wedding?  You can now comment via your Facebook profile, so please let us know what you think of this idea!
