There’s no better way to thank your groomsmen and guests than to hand them some good cigars. Weddings require so much planning and effort these days, you deserve to celebrate by sharing a fine cigar with your closest friends and family members at the reception. Of course, not all attendees will care to smoke a cigar at your wedding, but you might be surprised by just how many ask for one once they smell the aroma of cigars in the air. Some couples choose to host a cigar bar on their big day. Below are the best cigars you can buy for a wedding. Remember to keep them fresh if you’re buying cigars well before your wedding date.


Great Mild Cigars for a Wedding

Get good mild cigars everyone can enjoy without becoming nauseous (from too much nicotine). Assume most of your guests only smoke one or two cigars a year. Mellow and easygoing brands make the most sense. Here are three you can’t go wrong with.

Ashton Classic

Creamy, mild notes of cedar, almond, and cashew, and coffee bean mingle with a touch of Dominican spice in a bestselling cigar blended from the finest premium tobaccos. A silky Connecticut Shade wrapper leaf conceals a buttery core of well-aged binder and filler tobaccos in several popular shapes. Ashton Classic is the perfect cigar to impress occasional smokers and seasoned connoisseurs equally.

Country: Dominican Republic
Wrapper: Connecticut Shade

Arturo Fuente Hemingway

Tasting notes of chestnut, brown sugar, cinnamon, cedar, and pepper layer the palate in a collection of iconic Perfectos. Arturo Fuente Hemingway is an excellent choice for your wedding because of its eye-catching shape and creamy finish. Consider one of the brand’s ultra-popular smaller sizes like the Short Story and Work of Art. Shorter cigars are less intimidating for guests who may not smoke on a regular basis.

San Cristobal Elegancia

San Cristobal Elegancia delivers a luscious profile of cocoa, smoked almonds, and white pepper in a collection of traditional and bigger ring gauge shapes. Legendary cigar-maker Jose ‘Pepin’ Garcia blends a golden Ecuador Connecticut wrapper over a consistent core of premium Nicaraguan tobaccos. Elegancia tastes great with craft beer, whiskey, and many classic cocktails.

Wedding Cigars for the Best Man

When your best buddy or brother is done raising a toast to you and the Mrs., here are a few rare, high-end cigars to hide in your breast pocket and hand him in private. These are also great cigars to offer any folks in your wedding party who really love and appreciate premium brands.

Fuente Fuente Opus X

Fuente Fuente Opus X isn’t easy to find because it’s produced in very limited quantities, but its profile of cedar, fig, coffee bean, leather, and tangy spices never fails to impress. World-renowned cigar-maker Carlito Fuente blends Opus X from exclusive tobaccos harvested on his family’s Chateau de la Fuente estates in the Dominican Republic. Ask the bartender to pour a top-shelf scotch or bourbon to go with it.

Its velvety finish is supremely resonant and balanced.

The top-rated blend is handmade by master cigar rollers who craft every cigar with patience and precision. Fans of Padrón cigars treat themselves to the 80 Years on special occasions.

Wedding Cigars on a Budget

When you want to buy a lot of affordable cigars for your wedding reception, consider shopping for bundle cigars. Prices start at just over a dollar per cigar for a mild, flavorful, and well-made bundle. Because they’re not packaged in boxes, bundle cigars are cheaper, and there are tons of brands to choose.

There are also premium cigars that come in boxes but at more affordable prices. Here are three top-selling boxes you can buy for your wedding without spending a fortune.

Arturo Fuente Chateau Series Natural

Arturo Fuente Chateau Series cigars are handmade in many popular shapes. There are three wrappers, but we recommend the Natural, first, because it’s the mildest. Notes of almond, blonde roast coffee, and spices mingle through a silky finish. This palatable cigar is an excellent specimen of premium Dominican taste.

Strength: Medium
Country: Dominican Republic
Wrapper: Connecticut Shade

La Aroma de Cuba

La Aroma de Cuba is a top-selling, top-rated Nicaraguan cigar blended by award-winning cigar-maker Pepin Garcia. Tasting notes of cocoa, cedar, molasses, earth, and spices develop with rich, nutty texture in several versatile shapes. The 93-rated blend tastes great with bourbon and is an easy favorite among aficionados and new cigar lovers.
