Scent has the power to evoke strong memories, making it all the more important to carefully choose a perfume for your wedding day. Chances are, whenever you catch a whiff of the fragrance after your big day, you'll be brought back to your perfect big day and all the celebratory moments you shared with your spouse, your family, and your friends.
When it comes to choosing perfume for your wedding day, it's up to you whether you opt for your signature day-to-day scent or go for something completely new. Whatever you choose, your wedding perfume should reflect your style and personality - from the notes it emits to the bottle it comes in.
Floral and botanical fragrances are usually most requested by brides, but this is not to say that you can't select something fruity, earthy - or a scent that simply transports you back to a fond yet distant memory. Brides have also been known to wear the same fragrance that their mother, or other relative, wore on their wedding day - which is a nice way to incorporate the 'something old' and/or 'something borrowed' tradition. Alternatively, a new perfume is an excuse to buy your 'something new'!
Spray your wrists and décolletage with your chosen perfume on the morning of your wedding and keep it nearby throughout the day to reapply when needed. You can even buy a useful perfume atomiser which offers a smaller and lighter way to carry your perfume and comes in handy for your honeymoon packing too.
Whether you went with a classic ball gown or boho sheath, your personal style has probably already helped you chose a wedding dress. Similarly, it's always best to select the perfume for your wedding day with your individual tastes in mind. You want to feel wholly like yourself on the big day after all, so aligning your perfume with your personality is the way to go. Boho bride? Opt for a fragrance with gorgeous woody notes. Is your bridal style more classic and refined? Choose a scent that features fresh florals.
