Gentlemens Lounge

Weddings are typically all about the bride and planning the day they have dreamed about since they were a little girl. But now, more than ever, we are seeing grooms becoming involved in the planning and adding their style and personality into the celebration.

While cupcake and dessert bars have enjoyed huge popularity, it's now time for the boys to make their presence felt and welcome the trend of a Cigar and Cognac Bar. Not only do they look fantastic but they are also great for the element of interactive entertainment, and just think of the fabulous photos you'll get of your groom and his mates.

Setting up your cigar bar can be as simple or as elaborate as you like. Think about whether you want a
classy, old-fashioned feel or a contemporary chic vibe. Consider customizing the lighters and matches, using attractive ashtrays and designing special cigar bands with your names and wedding date on them. Your accompanying drink station can be stocked with cognac, scotch, brandy and rum, all spirits which traditionally match cigars perfectly.

If you are looking to hire someone to create your sophisticated man-cave... white + white weddings in Brisbane and The Style Co in Melbourne have created some amazing cigar and cognac bars. I highly recommend them.
