I am not doing one, but I would think that this would be best after dinner. Maybe you could have it directly outside of the barn or next to the doors leading outside.

We are doing one as well. It will be open after dinner and there will be ports and sherrys available at the barn.

We had a cigar “table.” Made a little sign, and displayed the cigars in a silver platter that we found at Homegoods for like 6 bucks. It was definitely a reception thing, after the first dances and speeches. The guys headed out to the patio attached to our reception room and our photog got great old school pictures of the guys with their cigars and all the smoke. It was a really cool thing. Even some of the ladies participated (although, I did not).

We ordered the cigars online and had them shipped to our venue two days before. I think the total cost of the project (signage and platter included) was just under $50, so it was well worth it. We only ordered about 30 cigars, though, because we had 75 guests and didn’t feel it was necesaray to get one for everyone. We had about three leftover.

MissDarling I highly recommend a “cigar bar” for your reception.  We had actual cigar rollers and it was a great success.  I can’t tell you how much it cost because it was a gift for us from our Best Man and his wife (the MOH).  I never inquired as to the price although I am still to this day curious.  They ordered about 75 cigars (we too had about 150 guests).

As Miss Chapstick stated above, ours too was just a table.  There was the main “roller” and she had an assistant. They showed up at the same time as our cake cutting was to commence.

What was really cool were the personalized bands that go around the cigar.  They had our initials and the date on them.

One thing I would definitely do is make sure your venue will allow for the smoking.

The company our friends went through is linked below.  I realize you’re on the other coast but you can at least get a quote.  Good luck and congrats!!!

Our gents would love that. Not in the budget, but how swanky to be able to offer one! I hope it goes over fabulously.
