I think it would be cool. We were actually going to have one until the smoking laws in Ohio changed.  Our Club actually has a cigar room that we were going to use too – bummer.  But I think it would be really cool.

It would be cool if it were far away or in a closed off room from the reception. Cigar smoke stinks and makes me ill. ^_^

@angel243:  we are doing a cigar table. So basically, the bar sans the roller. The cigars will be around 200$ plus whatever the tray and decor costs.. As well as the cigar lighters and such.

Traditionally the men would excuse themselves after dinner for cigars and drinks, so that makes sense to do it then. I agree with miss tattoo; cigar smoke makes me sick to my stomach so I would want it away from the other guests.

Our cigar bar will be in the courtyard of our venue. It isn’t like people will be forced to smell it or even be involved. I mean, most people don’t even inhale cigar smoke. It’s really not that serious. Neither my Fiance nor I are smokers. We just think it’ll be fun and make for cute pictures. Cigars are traditionally offered in celebration, so why not?

I’m not against the idea, but I do think it needs to be in a separate or outdoor area where it won’t bother guests who do not want to take part. There are people who have health issues such as asthma who may be very sensitive to smoke, there may be pregnant guests or children, or there may just be guests who hate smoking and do not want to be exposed to it. Also bear in mind that there may be guests who are offended that you are condoning smoking because they have had loved ones die of smoking related disease. I think you need to take that into account before deciding to do this.

@MissDarling:   I was thinking of doing this also. I don’t know how many people would participate but it seems fun. Our ballroom opens up to a patio and then there is another patio off to the side so I can easily separate people. Besides, there are going to be some smokers there anyway who will be smoking outside. I’d be interested to hear if you do it and if people liked it!

Oh, don’t use hay bales!! Hay + lit cigar = fire. Maybe you could bring in some benches or some wicker outdoor furniture or something.

 

ETA: Just saw this was from three years ago…oops!

does anyone have any pictures of the cigar bar at their wedding?  I am thinking of surprising my Fiance and his friends with this at the wedding.  Does anyone know if this is something that is usually done during cocktail hour or after dinner?

FutureMrsMS:  I don’t have any pictures, but at my SIL’s wedding, they had a small cocktail table set up on the deck with three boxes, lighters, and matches. 

It turned out not to be such a hot idea though. Perhaps it would have been better to have it set out later in the night. Basically all the guys sat on the deck the entire night smoking cigars. No one was dancing or even inside the reception. At one point the photographer went out to try to recruit some dancers. Just didn’t go over well. If you do one, I would suggest having the cigars set up later when things are winding down.
