We love this idea.
Of all the things you need to plan for your wedding day, perfume seems like the last thing on the list.
While it certainly shouldn’t be at the top of your priorities, you shouldn’t ignore it.
The fallback position that a lot of brides opt for is their usual scent when it comes to wearing perfume on the day.
This is totally fine, but there is a very special reason why you should wear a brand new perfume.
According to perfume expert Fiona Cooke, perfume can be a key to making memories for your big day.
“As a general rule, go with something new. Scent is connected to your limbic brain, so it creates a ‘smell memory’ in your brain that can last forever – so that is why you can smell something five months or five years later, and it will immediately give you a jolt of a memory to that time, place or experience.”
“Who doesn’t want that kind of serendipity attached to their most special day?”
And you know what we discovered?
You can actually get your wedding perfume bottle engraved, which will make it even more special.
Certain perfumes offer an engraving service, where you can the date of your wedding etched on the bottle.
The gorgeous folks at Jo Malone and Armani in Brown Thomas offer the engraving services.
Not getting married any time soon? These would make such a lovely gift for someone.
