This concept proved surprisingly contentious among our readers.
One thread featured a debate about whether criticizing a marijuana-themed wedding was justified when so many ceremonies are awash in alcohol.
Here's one writer's distinction between the two types of events.
Bret Reynolds writes:
Having a bar at a wedding is not the same as building the WHOLE wedding around marijuana. When I got married, we did it at a hotel and asked our guests that if they were going to be drinking that they either have a room booked at the hotel or to have a safe ride in place. Most marijuana smokers would not take the time to do so because they all think they drive better high. SMDH.
