Where the groom and groomsmen hang loose.

Having a cigar bar has been a popular addition in Hawaii to the outdoor reception. It also fits well with the continuing interest in having an outdoor lounge area.

Things to think about...,
*custom lighters or matches
*attractive or themed ashtrays
*an area that is located away from the main guest area
*good cigars
*custom cigar band
*drinks that pair well are cognac, scotch, rum & coffee (surprised?)

and some good advice .....
"I have made it a rule never to smoke more than one cigar at a time"

Food trucks and your Hawaii wedding

The entertaining trend of having food trucks prepare speciality foods at your wedding event has reached the islands! If this idea appeals to you then here is an important point to consider - this really only works at a private venue (since hotel venues do not generally allow outside food or beverages).A perfect site on Oahu to accommodate this concept is the ever popular Lanikuhonua. Another good location for having food trucks would be Kualoa Ranch.

While there are a variety of food trucks available, having an ice cream truck remains a top contendor in my book. Keeping ice cream cold at an off-site venue has always been tricky and having the refrigerated truck solves that problem. Think of how fun it would be for this truck to roll up after dinner!
