Whether your choice of venue is a quaint English church or a modern boutique hotel, scentscaping is the new thing for 2019 weddings.
1. Sweet, sweet roses
Choose fresh, local in-season blooms that are known for their scent. Think lilies, freesia, gardenia, jasmine and of course, roses. Your florist will be able to advise on what will work for your venue, colour scheme and the time of year.
2. Scents to savour
Champagne & Flamingos offer the perfect solution with their luxury range of signature scents, from which you can design the perfect aroma, which your guests will forever associate with your special day. You could deploy candles, diffusers and room atomisers during the ceremony and reception, and also give each guest a candle, featuring your scent, as a favour.
3. Breeze easy
Leave the doors and windows of your venue open for as long as possible, weather permitting. Sometimes a large number of people in a small space can make a venue stuffy – and there’s nothing a bit of fresh air can’t fix.
4. Quick spritz
Make a DIY ladies loo hamper for your guests to freshen up with. Why not stock up on your favourite fragrance to encourage them to spritz and go?
5. Food for thought
Consider where the ceremony will be in relation to where the wedding breakfast is being prepared. Wafts of food smells from the kitchen might be perfect a little later on, but the ceremony is not the time for smells from the kitchen.
