Brides and grooms today are constantly seeking new ways to make their weddings unique and memorable. Scent can be that X factor. As scent is the strongest trigger of memory, it can be a useful tool for brides and grooms to enhance the wedding experience and to make it truly unforgettable for all involved. Here are a few ways to incorporate scent before, during, and after your special day.
BEFORE: Hold a Private Fragrance Training Party
Have a Fragrance 101 session for your bachelorette party or bridal shower. A fragrance expert can take you through the history and basics of fragrance and can guide the group through new and undiscovered options. This is a great opportunity to learn something new and for you and your guests to select a new signature scent.
You can also use what you’ve learned in the private fragrance training session to gift your bridesmaids with a fragrance you know they will love!
DURING: Choose a Wedding Fragrance and/or Scent the Wedding Space
Choose a wedding day fragrance you’ve never worn before and wear this scent in the weeks and days leading up to the big day. By doing this, you are subconsciously correlating the chosen fragrance with your wedding day.
You can also use scent as an element of design. By taking into consideration the theme, color palette, and planned floral design, you can create a custom scent and release it throughout your wedding space – whether it be during the ceremony, the reception, or both! You can also incorporate scented products that are already on the market – like candles or diffusers -- to enhance the final look and scent of your wedding venue.
AFTER: Wear and Display Your Wedding Day Fragrance
Whenever you want to re-live your special day, spritz your wedding day fragrance on yourself or anywhere, and the beautiful memories of your special day will come flooding back immediately.
You can also use your wedding day fragrance as an accent piece on your vanity. Perfume bottles, no matter the size and shape, are beautiful and are works of art in themselves.
As you can see, there are numerous ways to incorporate scent throughout the wedding experience. Brides and grooms, get ready to ‘wow’ your guests and make your wedding day a truly unforgettable celebration.
