You’ve secured your dream venue, your RSVPs are rolling in, and you’ve said yes to the dress! But, when it comes to your wedding day, have you thought out the smaller details, such as which wedding day perfume to wear?
It can be tempting to reach for your tried and tested signature scent when choosing a fragrance. But selecting a completely new perfume has its merits, especially for such a special occasion as all the memories you make that day will be attributed to that scent only!
So, if you’re unsure which bridal perfume you want to be wearing when you say, ‘I do’, read on to find out our top picks based on popular wedding venues. Confetti at the ready!
Hopefully, if you are getting hitched in the great outdoors, the sun will be shining, and there will be a freshness in the air for everyone to enjoy. In this case, you’ll want a soft and airy scent to match your beautiful surroundings. A floral perfume is a perfect match for spring or summer soirees, including the empowering aroma of Flowerbomb by Viktor&Rolf, the luxuriously fresh Miss Dior by Dior or for a sweet touch, opt for Daisy Love by Marc Jacobs with its notes of daisy petals, raspberries and cream.
Country Barn Wedding
Offering endless photo opportunities, ample space to dance the night away, and whimsical décor delights (hello fairy lights), country barn weddings are all the rage! Perfumes created with earthy notes, such as patchouli or cedar, are the ideal complementary aroma for this rustic aesthetic. The beautiful La Vie Est Belle is a top contender for wedding day fragrance of choice. At the same time, the soft and feminine Narciso Rodriguez For Her or Si by Armani, with its elegant aroma and gold ring adorned bottle, has ‘best bridal perfumes’ written all over them!
A destination wedding could mean beautiful weather, stunning scenery and the opportunity to create one-of-a-kind memories with friends and family. So, to match the momentous occasion, you’ll want a bridal perfume that compliments your chosen location. Are you flying to golden shores and crystal blue waters? Then Light Blue by Dolce & Gabbana is a must-try! Are you saying your vows by the golden glow of a sunset? Then Born in Roma Donna Coral Fantasy by Valentino, inspired by the energy of magic hour in Rome, will forever remind you of that precious moment! While Under the Lemon Trees by Maison Margiela is reminiscent of a warm, summer Mediterranean breeze! One spritz of your wedding perfume will be enough to transport you back to your big day once it’s all over!
Weddings are full of traditions, such as the bride throwing her bouquet and the best man speech, but if you want your traditions to flow into your choices for the big day, you can’t go wrong with a truly classic perfume. Complete your bridal beauty routine with the luxury Coco Mademoiselle; enjoy effortless sensuality with J’Adore by Dior; or get set to say ‘I do’ with the pretty petal aroma of Chloe’s signature scent, Chloe Eau de Parfum. Whichever classic scent gets your approval, we’re sure it’ll always hold a special place in your heart!
A Wedding Unique to You
Like everything on your wedding day, your choice of bridal perfume should be unique to you. So, if your vibe doesn’t fit into the ‘traditional’ box, then there are plenty more fragrance avenues to explore! For boho brides waiting to walk down the aisle, may we suggest Tom Ford White Patchouli? Or, for the fun, outgoing bride, the candied fruits and cocktail of woods and musk in Toy Boy 2 by Mochino may be just what you’re looking for! And for those brides where nothing but extraordinary will do for their wedding day, look no further than the radiant Alien Goddess by Mugler!
