I kind of find it a little odd that they would have to go sooooo far from the wedding to enjoy it. There’s no outside area for you to set up like a little lounge or something? I would hate to think that the hotel guests have to breathe the smoke while coming into the lobby or anything…

There’s no balcony or something that they could go out onto? I think it’s a bit weird to offer it to your guests and then tell them that in order to smoke they have to go and stand outside the hotel.

Wait, is this like directly onto the street? Like they’d be standing on the sidewalk to enjoy the cigars, just randomly? I think it’s a nice gesture but I really think i’d feel kind of alone if i was standing outside smoking, away from the festivitiess…

I LOVE the idea but agree with the others, it’s a little strange (and a tease!) to offer it if they cant go smoke it until after the wedding or if they want to leave. Usually cigars are social things, not like a cigarette break. There’s not a balcony or anything? I would rethink this if you can’t figure out some way for them to smoke (outside!!) without leaving your wedding.

I wouldn’t do it then. I think it’s too far for someone to have to go from the party to enjoy something that they were offered at said party. As a guest I’d feel weird if I was offered a cigar and then told I had to go outside to smoke it. It would kind of say “Oh, I know you smoke so have a cigar but you have to go outside to smoke it!” I’m guessing as you’re having your reception at a hotel that you’re not planning on an after party or something? What about giving them out to your adult guests as favours at their places for dinner? That way they’ve been given them and if they want them they can make the choice to smoke them whenever they want.

I agree that I wouldn’t do it. You need direct access outside. Keep in mind that many areas don’t allow smoking indoors, period, regardless of the type of venue. Even outside, there are often restrictions on how far away from the building you have to be before you can light anything up. Alot of people are not even allowed to smoke in bars anymore. Even if people don’t mind cigarette smoke (just as many people don’t like it and can’t be around it), cigar smoke is completely different in that it is much stronger and more offensive to most folks.
