Greenhouse Of Walled Lake, a Michigan-based dispensary, has partnered with cannabis manufacturer Choice Labs to offer the prize. Interested couples will need to fill out a form online before the end of April and explain why they want to win.
The ceremony will happen at the Greenhouse grounds, which will be transformed into a wedding venue with the assistance of wedding planner Haley Makay.
“We’re seeing a generation choose weed over booze, even when it comes to traditional celebrations like weddings. Move [over] ‘open bar,’ hello ‘bud bar,’” said Greenhouse owner Jerry Millen.
In addition to a bud bar, the wedding will also feature an infused chocolate cake and the throwing of weed leaves instead of rice. The winners will be announced in early May and the contest is open to those who are old enough to receive a marriage license. No purchase is necessary.
Whoever wins the prize won’t be the first to tie the knot with an ode to cannabis.
In 2020, a Florida couple exchanged vows at a medical cannabis shop, Columbia Care Dispensary, in Cape Coral. The couple was first introduced to the plant after the groom was diagnosed with cancer and turned to pot to cope with the side-effects of his medical treatments.
With his cancer in remission, the couple viewed the wedding as a chance to awareness about medical cannabis.
That same year, a Colorado couple who work in the cannabis industry also celebrated with a weed-themed wedding. Guests could partake in a selection of dried flower and edibles, and pipes and bongs were on hand.
“I wanted to have a different wedding, one that represented our love. We are very non-traditional in some ways so the cannabis-themed wedding was important,” the bride said, who was handed a custom wedding bong from the officiant after exchanging vows.
