Because weddings are primarily feminine affairs it is becoming popular to have a ‘Man Cave’ for the gentlemen.  This is a nearby room or area of the reception that might have cigars, brandy, scotch and a flat screen with the game on. Men are notorious for disappearing to find a safe haven and a television with ESPN.  Why not already have this available to them?

We put together what we believe would be some great components for building the perfect man cave for your reception:

A whiskey bar or brandy bar.

A cigar bar or if your budget allows it you could even bring in a person to hand roll cigars for your guests.

Comfy leather furniture or lounge chairs.

Flat screens with cable or satellite access to broadcast the latest game.

And if room permits – even providing a gaming station.

First of all don’t think you are stuck with flowers.  Boutonnieres can be made from colorful felt, feathers, fabric pinwheels, yarn, buttons or a combination of many materials for a mixed media look!

Get creative with totally fresh ideas. The film flower is perfect for a photographer and the guitar would be great for the music lover and party horns (what!?! – we love this) would be pure perfection for a New Years Eve wedding! Other cool ideas were wheat, pinwheels, cotton, shells and one that even looks like an award ribbon (appropriate for most grooms we think!)
