    Hi past present and future brides,

    I was thinking of adding a cigar table to either my cocktail hour or a post dinner thing (not enough smokers to actually higher a cigar roller)..has anyone seen this set up? Ive looked on line and really havent come across too much. Im more intrested in pics or if any of the brides in the past have done this.
    Thanks!

      I did a cigar station but it was not really a table - just a box with a variety of cigars. I used the lounges that I had for the cocktail, and moved them next to the dance floor so people could enjoy their cigars after dinner.

        Hi there!! I was actually looking into hiring a cigar roller for our almost married reception this august back home in CT! I actually have to call them today to see what the cost would be. They make a special label for your day and roll right there at your wedding, and then label them with your personalized label. So we will see. I didnt think I could get one for the DW so I thought the AHR would be a perfect place to do so.

          My fiance wants the whole shebang cigar roller for HIMSELF at our wedding :) I didn't think to just buy a box of cigars and set them up with the ash tray, cigar lighter and cutter, that's a WONDERFUL idea and much more cost effective =)

            We're just going to have a box as well - no cigar roller. I haven't seen any inspiration pics of this yet but I think it would be pretty simple to put together.

              We ahd a cigar roller at our wedding. Every one LOVED it, however be sure to get your pricing worked out and be firm. We told our cigar roller 1 cigar per person, we agreed we would pay no more that $400.00 at the end of the night he told us we owed him $1800. It was a huge ordeal in the end we paid $600.00So just be aware of this if you do hire somone.

                  Typically, when I do cigar rolling events, I have a set price (ie $500) which will include an allotted amount of cigars (100) and anything over that, the guest can buy directly from us. We don't play that "you owe us more" game. When we run out of cigars, I simply tell the guest "the complimentary cigars are gone, but I do have a few available for sale if you so desire" and it is usually someone wanting their 4th or 5th one to take with them, so they don't mind paying $5/cigar.

                  My contracts have you pay half up front, and half on the day of the event with NO surprise costs. Then again, I am an honest person whose day job is in commercial banking so...I guess you get what you pay for.
