A cigar-lovers’ guide to surviving the wedding season

The wedding season is upon us and there is no better way to celebrate than to share cigars. However, before you start planning you cigar purchases, there are a few key considerations to take into account.

Do the numbers. If you’re a generous kind of person and intend to share the cigars around, make a rough estimate of how many you may need and buy accordingly. If you have a select few in mind, then you probably won’t mind splashing on some premium Havana cigars; whilst if you expect your cigars to be in great demand, there are some excellent non Cuban brands available which offer quality and a first class cigar experience as well as international cigars for the more budget conscious. If you are unfamiliar with cigars, why not purchase a sampler pack in advance to enjoy a selection of flavours and aromas before you buy? We have a section on our site with some of the best selling wedding and special occasion cigars to help you and if you still can’t make your mind up, why not email us and an expert can help you?

Prepare your presentation. Sharing cigars is not at all like handing a box of chocolates around, where everyone just dips in. There is no better way to achieve this than to present your audience with tubed cigars which look impressive and enticing; it is also the perfect way to ensure they remain in top condition.

Tubed Cigars
There are many brands available in tubes, from the very best Cuban cigar, to our more economical friends; so whatever your choice, this option is open to all. If you are not a fan of tubed cigars, then you could consider a travel humidor to present your cigars in a quality fashion, whilst ensuring they are kept in optimum conditions for the perfect cigar smoking experience.

Should you be in the enviable position of being the groom, then you will be faced with the dilemma of what to give your best man and ushers as a gift at the end of the day. You will be wanting to give them something of quality which reflects your gratitude and respect for your close friends or family. A cigar alone may not enough; however a superb Havana cigar in a silver cigar tube with free engraving so you can add a personalised message, initial or date, is the perfect gift to mark the occasion.

..and finally do make sure you keep number one in mind and don’t run out! It’s always a good idea to buy just a few extra for your secret stash, so you can be assured of enjoying the Big Day with your favourite cigar!
