Weddings & The Hand-Rolled Cigar Experience

There’s been a real wedding trend lately for cigars…as groomsman gifts, for bachelor parties, and reception favors. “There’s something celebratory about a cigar, which is why I think the cigar bar trend has really gained in popularity over the last few years. From custom cigar bands with the couple’s monogram to a cigar lounge offering a signature cocktail to sip while you enjoy the finest hand-rolled cigar, these are the details that create an experience that guests truly remember.” — Meghan Cease, M. Elizabeth Events (Birmingham Based wedding planner who also serves the beaches of 30A)

So, while at my favorite 30A beaches this week for a little work and a little play, I stopped by The Hub at Watersound to check out Shore Thing Cigars, the new cigar shop, owned by Paul Copeland and country signer Luke Bryan. It opened just over a week ago and is sure to become cigar aficionados’ favorite stop at the beach.

This lifestyle lounge boasts a walk-in humidor with hundreds of different kinds of hand-rolled cigars in handsome packaging, imported from Honduras and the Dominican Republic. Shore Thing also offers a selection of fine cigar boxes and various wines and champagne.

When I walked in the door, I was impressed with the clean lines and gentlemanly beach decor. Copeland told me that the humidor room’s dark stained wood floors are reclaimed wood from Bryan’s torn down barn. The leather sofa and chairs, cowhide rugs and flat screened TVs invite guests to relax and stay a while. There’s also lockers for discerning clientele.

So, whether you are at the beach for a bachelor party and stop in with the guys for a smoke, or want to order cigars as wedding party gifts, Copeland can hook you up. Shore Thing Cigars will ship anywhere in the United States. You can also check them out on Facebook and Instagram.
