- Wedding: September 2013 - Creek club at ion, SC
I was reading a magazine and honestly, I had never thought of this. One girl put lavender in all her favor bags and the reception smelt of lavender, I think this is a good idea as my colour scheme includes purple so I think im going to jack it.
What will your wedding smell like?

I don’t think ours had a distinct smell. DH & I are not fans of overpowering odors so the only really present smells were probably roses & dinner.

We got married in a park and had a catered BBQ, so our wedding smelled like ribs and smoky brisket. Yum!

I’m having a winter wedding, I want my wedding to smell like Christmas, such a happy scent! I have no intentions of acheiving that but it’s a nice thought.

Our reception is in a wooden building at a winery. Everytime I walk into the building I can smell the wood, and I love it!

We’re having a breakfast buffet…it’ll smell like bacon. I’m pretty darn excited about that.

@mrsztobee: How about putting cinammon/ clove/ star anise around the place, that would make it smell nice and comforting…..Or just a heap of peppermint sticks lol :p

DH and his family all have some pretty big seasonal allergies, so while we thought of incorporating dried lavender or other herbs, we had to toss out anything too fragranced, unfortunately. I even forgot to wear my perfume!
But I guess it smelled like autumn, cut grass, and wet stone since we had the ceremony in the full swing of fall, outdoors, in front of a large, inky fountain, at a place with pretty highly manicured gardens and grounds. And we used a lot of acorns in glassware to hold unscented pillar candles in place at the reception, and I think the warmth from the candles made them give off a kind of woody scent.

@bex292: +1 We’re doing brunch and I will be severely disappointed if that room doesn’t smell like bacon and coffee!
Might also smell like hops since I am considering using dried hops flowers in our decor.
So, hops, bacon, coffee… sounds like breakfast after a bad hangover 😀

I actually thought about this, I wanted to use a few oil warmers and have the room smell like a light hint of vanilla/cupcakes.
Also, I wanted to get those auto spray airfresheners that spray every 15, 30 or 90 minutes for the restrooms.

I always thought you weren’t supposed to have strongly scented flowers, candles or potpourri if you’re serving food. Personally, I find mixtures of scents to be a little nauseating, so I don’t think I’d have a “scent theme” at my wedding.
Those bacon-scented weddings sure sound wonderful, though!

I am hoping this isn’t a trend that takes off because if you have a lot of guests like me then your guests will spend the evening sneezing and blowing their noses. I have a hard enough time with other people’s perfume let alone the B&G scenting their wedding.

Hopefully washed guests, my flowers and fresh air. No toxic chemicals… except if someone overdoes it on the perfume/cologne. I wish people wouldn’t wear that phthalate soup, but at least I won’t be adding to it.
