I don’t think ours had a distinct smell. Darling Husband & 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

Darling Husband 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.
