Cigar Bar 411

One of my absolute favorite wedding trends of 2013 were Cigar Bars. With all things vintage and 1920's-themed making a big splash, a Cigar Bar is such a great way to add a unique touch to your reception, and to have something for the groom, groomsmen and the men at your wedding to appreciate!

There are several different ways you can create a Cigar Bar to suite your budget and your space :

A) Cigar Corner : The most economical and least space consuming method is to buy a variety of cigars by the box to set out on a table. Add some cigar books and a bowl of matches or create some customised cigar bands and cigar matchboxes with your names and wedding date. For an extra touch you could add a bottle or two of cognac or scotch with some glasses.
B) Cigar Bar Service : Hire a service to come out with humidors, cigars, etc and set up a cigar bar for you. This takes some of the work away from you and gives you a more cohesive look.

C) Hand Rolled Cigars – For the Midas touch incorporate a real live cigar roller into your reception! Although this may be one of the pricier options, this is sure to leave a lasting impression on your guests! Though they have to be booked in advance.
D) The Men’s Lounge – If space and budget permit, why not create a men's lounge? In order to prevent separating the men and women for too long, only have it open during a portion of your event, keep the area small as to only accommodate a small number of men at a time, and keep it easily accessed from the main reception area.
