Learn How To Enhance The Memory Of Your Wedding Day
You will be able to soak in the memories of your wedding day when you look through the photo albums in later years, but remembering the smells will really infuse those memories with life. Having an experience in the vicinity of a scent can actually increase the vividness of that memory, if you smelled that scent at the time the original memory was formed.
When preparing and brainstorming for the wedding day, think about a couple of these great tips for making scent memories that will really last.
Sight And Scent
Buy a nice perfume bottle just for the wedding day festivities and ask the wedding photographer to take a picture of it while taking photographs of the bride getting ready.
Think about handing out dried lavender so the guests can throw it. Whenever you smell lavender, the memories of the wedding will come rushing back.
Sprig Of Herbs
Sprigs of rosemary or mint should be put into the air to add a fragrant, rustic charm to your table settings.
Crown Of Blossoms
The beautiful brides of Indian wear blossoms in their hair on their wedding. You should get a clue from beautiful Bollywood women and wear a blossomy crown instead of the typical veil – or, pick a flower that come from your wedding destination.
You can really be one-of-a-kind with a bespoke scent. There are a lot of perfumers who specialize in making custom scents for weddings and other special events. Check out Aftelier Perfumes, Sweet Anthem, and Sarah Horowitz Parfum for some custom wedding scents.
Give Away Small Perfume Vials
Give away small perfume vials as gifts to bridesmaids or guests at your bridal shower. A lot of indie and niche perfumers sell samples on their sites, or you might buy them on the Internet at Surrender to Chance or The Perfumed Court.
Use A Special Bouquet
Think about options from the farmer’s market. Fresh mint or wild strawberries can add a wonderful fragrance to a flower bouquet.
Pass The Scent
There are some companies like 5-Thirteen Designs that offer fine-mist fragrances and DIY kits that are fine to spray on the majority of surfaces, including fabric and paper. You can scent all things from your table linens to invitations.
Solid perfume lockets are a great way to make sure the scent stays close to you during the wedding ceremony. You can browse Etsy perfumers like Illuminated Perfume and For Strange Women for solid perfume lockets that are vintage-inspired.
Make Your Own Scent
A lot of companies, like Perfume Bar Soirees in California, have their create-your-own fragrance parties: ideal for a bridal party or wedding shower.
Choose a new fragrance and don’t put it on until the wedding day (be sure to test the scent first, though). The smell will continually bring back good memories of when you first walked down the aisle.
