I was thinking about adding a scent to my wedding invites. Im getting 4 days b4 Christmas and wanting to add a little holiday cheer to them. Nothing strong but maybe a light vanilla or cinnamon. What do you think of this ???

I think it’d be cool, so long as the scent wasn’t too overwhelming.

I’m sorry but I don’t like the idea. Many people are sensitive to fragrances and so it could potentially annoy or irritate your guests. I’m sure there are other ways to add holiday cheer.

I wouldn’t. Not only can the scents annoy the recipients, some of the fragrance sprays can stain paper when left to sit for a while.

If you really like the idea, go for it. For me, I don’t think it would add anything to the invite. And, as others said, some of your guests may be irritated by the smell (my grandmother has asthma and can’t have anything scented because it bothers her so much).

I’d be weirded out, since scented mail isn’t the norm, I would start hunting all over the house to find the origin of the smell.

I think it’s really nice that you want to add a little something extra to your invites, but I agree with PP that you never know who is sensitive to scent. My mom would be in bed for days with a migraine if someone sent her something with fragrance.
Maybe a better idea would be to include a little giveaway with your invites? A papercut Christmas ornament or something? That way you would have something special (and holiday-ish!) to help your guests get excited. 🙂

I’m not a fan of scented anything (Air fresheners are a different story.)
If I got a scented invitation, I’d think it was a bit tacky (Scented resume from Legally Blonde, anyone?)
Plus, as others have said, some people have a perfume allergy. I worked with a woman who couldn’t have scented laundry detergent because the scent would break her out in hives.
