Weed Weddings Are The Latest Marriage Trend

Weed-themed weddings are now a thing. In Colorado, US, where the possession of marijuana has been legalised, the marriage trend has reached a high.


Yup, when hashing out the final details of their big day brides and grooms-to-be are weeding out traditional wedding flowers, buttonholes and table settings in favour of something a little more pungent.

The budding craze, that's showing no sign of slowing down, sees couples making the joint decision couples to trade in their something blue for something green.

As the New York Times put it the "weeding" aesthetic is Martha Stewart Weddings meets High Times, featuring charming and rustic looking buttonholes and bouquets which just to happen to be made up of marijuana leaves and delicate little canapes laced with pot.

According to their report, some couples have even gone so far as to provide free joints, vaporisers, hookahs, and full-on pot-dens for their guests to enjoy.

The news comes as McDonald's restaurants in Hong Kong are open for wedding parties. And the weirdest part about it is that this service came at the request of customers.

In a statement the fast food chain said: "We started the program because many customers tell us McDonald's is where they first started dating.

"McDonald's is where there love story grew. They want to hold their wedding parties and even anniversary parties at McDonald's - to relive sweet beginnings and bring their romantic story full circle."

Customers can choose from four wedding packages. The 'Bargain' costs $373 (just over £200) while the top of the range 'Deluxe' package costs $1290, (around £750).
