So much thought and planning goes into your wedding that it’s often the smallest, most obvious things that tend to get overlooked. Case in point: Your perfume. Ideally, whatever you wear should be closely matched or—at the very least—complementary to your bouquet.
Huh. Why? Let’s say you have a primarily rose bouquet, but your perfume is on the spicier side—or maybe you have dainty sprigs of lavender poking through your mixed bouquet, but your perfume smells heavily of citrus. Wonky, right? Conflicting scents can be distracting at best and give you a headache at worst. And since scent is so closely tied to memory, you want to make sure you spritz something that will trigger good ones for years to come.
So, what do I do? Luckily, many popular wedding florals are also the key notes in most fragrances. Whether it’s roses, a handful of lilies or a bunch of jasmine flowers, you have plenty of options to choose from. Just remember to take your bottles (or spritz a few contenders on those free blotters in Sephora) before meeting with your florist.
