The Best Cuban Cigars for Weddings
Wedding season is now well and truly upon us. Friends and family are tying the knot left, right and centre and we thought we’d suggest what we think are the best Cuban cigars to share with fellow guests, enjoy post ceremony, during the reception or even gift to the newlyweds themselves.
It’s really no wonder that Summer is the busiest season for love. The balmy evenings stretch out, people spend more time socialising, flowers blossom and it seems inevitable that love does too. New and old lovers revel and frolic beneath blue skies and lay upon green grass as days seems to last forever and summer feels like it will never end. And Summer isn’t the only season where love flourishes and thrives, it’s also the season when most people solidify their love -when knots are tied.
Romeo y Julieta
Romeo y Julieta cigars are an obvious choice for a wedding. The Cuban cigar brand takes its name from the hopelessly romantic tale of love about two star crossed lovers. That is without the tragic ending of course, perhaps we'll leave that bit out. There are plenty of Romeo y Julieta cigars to choose from and many would be perfect for any moment during the day, but one that we would highly recommend is the Romeo y Julieta Romeo de Luxe Edicion Limitada 2013 cigar. This is because these cigars online are beautifully presented with two bands, including the brand and the Limited Edition band which will be sure to impress any in-laws, new acquaintances or even old friends.
The iconic brand Cohiba (pictured above) have some of the best Cuban cigars suitable for a wedding.
We personally think a wedding wouldn’t be a wedding without a box of Cohiba cigars. We envisage the groom, his best man and groomsmen sharing a cigar post ceremony, when the pre-wedding jitters have gone and they are both able to enjoy a moment while the bride is sharing a moment with her bridesmaids. During this smoke, the groom and his closest friend will most probably enjoy talking about the past and the future and all of the memories they share with each other. A truly reflective moment as the groom's life changes for ever and for the better (we hope!).
Our Cuban Cigar Samplers are the perfect cigars to bring to a wedding, particularly if you are planning on gifting them to loved ones or in-laws. As father of the bride, we would gift them to our in-laws and enjoy smoking them together to honour the marriage and the couple’s love. These are also great as gift packs to give to guests as they leave the reception and to commemorate the ceremony. These will be enjoyed by many guests over the course of the day, or kept as a sentimental keepsake to remember the day.
Limited and Regional Edition Cigars
Limited or Regular Editions are the best Cuban cigars for gifting to the now happily married couple. There are some fantastic cigars online, such as the Partagas Serie No.1 Cigar Editión Limitada 2017 which will set yourself apart from the other guests who buy them photo frames and blenders.
As well as gifting them with any cigars for sale on our website, you could also give the newlyweds a personalised cigar accessory. We think any cigar cutter would make for a beautiful gift if personalised with their initials or the date of the wedding engraved on it.
