Wedding Cigar Bar Action Station Idea

I think about each wedding I've been to and they've all been amazing in their own way. They all stand out in my mind (which is a feat in itself since, for a while, Pete and I got invited to more weddings that I think the average couple does). But there's only I've ever been to with a wedding cigar bar. Yup, my cousin Erica's wedding had one.

Her wedding was beautiful. I was honored to be in her wedding party and to get to spend the entire day with her. I was at her house early and got to see her transform into a beautiful bride. That in itself was memorable. The limo ride to the church was memorable, as was sitting in the front row, watching her say "I do."

That was almost five years and two kids ago. And still, I can remember her action station vividly. And that's what you want to give people. You want one moment that they will remember, years later.

For Erica's wedding, it was the wedding cigar bar.

For a few hours during the reception, a cigar roller came in and did his thing. It was incredible to watch him unroll the leaves, stuff them, cut them, and affix each cigar with a sticker bearing the couple's name and wedding date.

He did this all by hand, alone, and we were able to watch his precision, and his time.

It was a really cool thing to experience. I've never seen a cigar station at a wedding before.

My cousin's uncle goes to this cigar roller on a regular basis, so that's how he ended up at my cousin's wedding. 
If you don't know a guy, but you do like the idea, you could set up a DIY cigar bar wedding station. Purchase cigars, order personalized cigar labels, and use them as a wedding "extra" (I wouldn't say favor because there are probably a lot of guests who wouldn't smoke a cigar).
But Pete, he was a fan of the cigar. Plus, many of the men went outside and smoked them during the wedding. So that was a nice time for them to bond.

If cigars aren't your thing, you should still find a way to make your wedding unique. 
Have a band, have a Venetian hour, ride in on a horse. Whatever it is, do something that your guests will remember a year or two later.
Us? We had a shrimp and grits action station, a candy bar, and a band. But what people remember the most is the fact that we had a delicious, chocolate cake.
