Finding the ideal trademark smell for the big day was a critically significant aspect of my wedding planning as a newlywed with a lifelong passion for fragrance.
Basically, I wanted a scent that was distinctive enough to wear on special occasions after the wedding (like an anniversary meal spent reminiscing with my husband) but familiar enough that I knew we would both enjoy how it smelled on my natural skin. We chose a flower-filled, exquisite winery with floor to ceiling windows on New York’s Hudson River as our wedding venue, so I wanted a smell that would complement both my wedding day design and that setting.
I chose Meadow Bloom Eau De Parfum by OldVine Fragrance to fit with my wedding day aesthetic (which was only heightened by the morning’s surprise rain showers that ceased just in time for our golden hour shots), which was full of a distinctively dewy romance by way of wild freesia, playful waterlily, and a dreamy vanilla orchid note. I know that every time I smell the sentimental aroma, it will be as if I’m there on that vineyard among the rain-kissed flower petals once again because I’ve only worn the scent on that memorable day thus far.
Here are the ideal scents for your big day, according to the venue, whether you are planning an amazing destination event like Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker’s Italian vacation or perhaps prefer lovely oceanside nuptials with white sand under your toes. You’re welcome, my sweethearts.
