How to make your day even more memorable!

One suggestion I always give my brides, are to choose a wedding day fragrance you have never worn before. The reason being, is that every time you wear the fragrance any time thereafter, you will always be reminded of your special day, as will your husband! I personally wore, Donna Karen Cashmere Mist, and now I bring it out for date nights, or special occasions.

Weddings are not just a celebration of love, but a memorable experience that involves friends, family--and yes--fragrance. According to experts, a wedding day should be carefully organized to be unforgettable, since fragrance, relationships and memories are closely intertwined.

Your wedding-day perfume will always trigger special memories, so choose it carefully. When shopping, you can better describe what you're looking for if you know a few pros' terms. Experts divide scents into six families: chypre (sheep-ra, French for Cyprus), fougere (foo-zhair, or fern), citrus, green, floral, and oriental. For a wedding in the mountains, you might try a woodsy chypre. A country gathering may call for a fresh citrus. Light floral and green scents are nice in spring and summer, and spicy oriental and musky fougere in fall or winter. Talk to your florist about incorporating notes of your scent into your bouquet.
