3 unique ways to incorporate perfume into your big day
There are many things for brides to consider on their big day – the flowers, the cake, the frock. Needless to say it can become a little overwhelming for blushing brides-to-be.
Then there are the less obvious things for brides and grooms to consider. Like how to create the desired atmosphere at their wedding and what to gift the members of the bridal party – just to name a few.
The fact is there’s a simple way to take care of these wedding day tasks as well as provide a pretty and distinctive element to your big day, and the answer lies with fragrances. Here are three unique ways you can incorporate perfume into your wedding day…
YOU NEED A GIFT FOR YOUR BRIDESMAIDS
They’ve been there for all of the meetings, thrown you one amazing hens ‘do, and even assured you that you look beautiful in your gown – even when you didn’t believe them. For this, they deserve something truly special. It doesn’t need to cost the earth either; a token to show that you appreciate their hard work is all you need – but you know, it’s nice to gift something pretty, too. Perfume is the perfect present for any girl – especially when it comes in a super cute package.
What to choose: we recommend gifting See By Chloé Paint A Scent; a limited-edition brush-on fragrance that allows you to “paint” the perfume onto your skin. The juice inside this adorable miniature is the original See By Chloé fragrance, which features notes of bergamot, apple blossom and vanilla.
YOU WANT TO CREATE A CERTAIN ATMOSPHERE
Trying to make both the church and the reception area reflect the theme of your wedding can be a difficult task. Most couples need decorations by the bucket load in order to ensure their venue has the right feel to it. Candles and diffusers are a great way to set a tone at your wedding and adjust the ambience in any setting. They can turn an old, cold church into a warm, blossoming environment or help exude your beach-wedding theme at your reception. Scattering candles around your venue will work to discreetly fill the room with an atmosphere that’s been tailor made by you.
What to choose: for a beach wedding, we love Circa Mango & Papaya Room Fragrance for it’s sweet and tropical island-reminiscent notes. If you’re looking for something that will lightly fragrance a large space (such as a church), Yankee Candle Wedding Day candle is a perfect choice – and not just because of the name. This candle features notes of florals and subtle fruits that provide a long-lasting, delicate scent throughout your venue.
YOU WANT TO PROVIDE SOMETHING COOL FOR YOUR GUESTS
Everyone knows that women tend to bring small clutches to weddings, as bulky, everyday bags don’t tend to go with eveningwear. For this reason, women tend to leave the bulk of their make-up essentials at home. Why not add something bespoke to your wedding day and create a “touch-up station” for your guests in the bathroom of your venue? You can fill it with a variety of lip colours, blotting papers, breath mints and perfume. No lady wants to feel as though her scent has faded away after all!
What to choose: you want to provide one or two perfumes that will cater to a variety of women and if you can tie them into the theme of your wedding, or choose scents that features notes that match your wedding flowers – even better. We love Jo Malone Peony & Blush Suede Cologne, Chloé Eau de Parfum and Estée Lauder Modern Muse for their amazing hints of blooming peonies, scrumptious lychee and jasmine sambac.
