I love the candle idea… I may borrow that! sweet pea is such a pretty scent and I sure it will suit you perfectly!

 I plan on purchasing a fragrance that’s completely new to me to wear the day of my wedding and the weeks leading up. I have scents I wore at different times in my life that trigger such memories and emotions whenever smaller them so I plan to purposefully create a scent memory for myself and my wedding. Laughing

Well, I’m going to be wearing DKNY Be Delicious – I looooove that smell, and so does fi!

We are having alot of vanilla scented candles, we have tossed around the idea of doing some oil warmers as well, but not sure – if we did we’d turn them on AFTER the food.

Have you made sure none of your guests have allergies or are sensitives to smells?

I don’t like artificial fragrances due to the phthalates they use (I used to use designer perfume until I realized how bad it was for my health, and my loved ones’ as well… if you smell something, that means it is entering your brain through your olfactory bulb), and I think I’ll just go for the natural scents of the flowers, venue, and food, rather than add any essential oils or anything to the mix. In this case, less is more, from my perspective.

Replacing the labels with pictures of you sounds like a great idea. Like JplusJ said, there is definitely a memory-triggering reaction to certain smells, that incorporating those scents will make your wedding that much more memorable.

Personally, though, most artificial scents trigger an allergic reaction in me so I’ll be staying away from that. It will be difficult though, since my FI’s family is heavily into perfumes!

I can’t have a lot scents at the wedding because my grandmother is asthmatic.  However, I will be wearing a perfume that I have not ever worn (Dolce and Gabbana Rose The One) and Fiance will be wearing the male version.

@CiaArielleNeugebauer:  I’ll probably be wearing Dior J’adore (my signature special occasion scent). Are you lighting the candles or just putting them there to add to the ambience? B&BW candles give off a decent amount of fragrance even when they’re not lit. Just asking because too strong of a scent might be cloying to your guests, especially mingled with the scent of their other food. I’d take the lids off but leave them unlit.

@Aquaria:  That’s what I wore.

And I have a whole cabinet of probably… 50 or more perfumes… maybe more like 70.

That stuff is amazing!  I just bought my 3rd Burberry Body, the Tender version last weekend, looooooove.

I was so nervous and had an upset stomach on my wedding day that I didn’t even wear my favorite perfume.  I did everything myself, and was packing up the van with the wedding decor the morning of the rehearsal dinner, was baking like a mad woman in the days leading up to the wedding, and was doing too much I guess.  At the rehearsal dinner I ended up almost taking fainting spells in the bathroom to the venue.  Luckily everyone really helped out and set everything up for me.  I felt really blessed to have them all there to help out!  But yeah… the next day I still wan’t too chipper so I decided against the scent, just in case it would set me off.  The hairspray at the salon was turning my stomach so I figured no perfume was a good idea!  (Everyone thought i was pregnant apparently… which I’m not, and in fact was leading up to my time of the month… another reason I think I felt ill!)  Yikes!

@CiaArielleNeugebauer:  For Christmas my uncle got me BCBGBMaxAzaria’s Bon Chic. My SO LOOOOOOVES it, so that’s what I’ll probably use on my wedding day. I really like Chloe and wear it on special occassions, so that’s another contender.

I have thought about having a “signature scent” incorporated into the day with candles or something, but I’m still not sure since a lot of people have alergies. I really like that scent Westin resorts use… I think it’s called White Tea and Bamboo or sometihng. Just a clean, fresh scent without being “grassy”. If I did go for it, I would use something like that.

I wore Serge Lutens Un Bois Vanille on my wedding day. It’s got a lovely deep vanilla smell, which I thought was perfect for my December wedding. And now, every time I wear it, it brings back happy memories!

My only concern w/ buying up a bunch of candles this summer is if they’ll still be as fresh come next year? I don’t have a ton of Bath and Body Works candles so I don’t know how strong they are and how they do if you hold on to them for a while. If you’re passionate about Bath and Body Works, this is perfect for you – why would you wear any other fragrance, you know? 

 

Ideally, I want a brand new fragrance for our wedding, but I’m afraid I won’t find one I like in time. My partner and I are both fairly picky about fragrances, and he is sensitive and doesn’t like a lot of smells. One of my favorite perfumes (Tocca’s Brigitte) he thinks is just okay. He isn’t allergic to it or dislike it, but he isn’t as over the mood like he is about the other fragrances I wear more often (any of my LaVanilla, Ginestet Botrytis, Aromachology Totally Edible, DKNY Pure …the one that has Verbena in it).
