RIU Wedding Perfume??

Recommended Posts

Hmm..I didn't use anything different. I remembered my sister went on like a 2 week hunt for perfume. She finally found one and spent a buttload of money. She got home and had her husband smell it and he said he wanted her to smell like she always did and what he loved. I asked my FI and he said the same. So I ended up going with what I always wear and that is Moonlit path by bath and body works. But you could always go into sephora or a department store and try some out and see what you like.

I agree with this...wear your normal everyday scent.

I'm against the grain on this one (surprise..lol). The perfumes I always wear remind me of old times, old people, sitting at work, etc. I guess we wanted something that only reminded us of us and that day. We both got a new scent for the wedding, and didn't wear it/smell it on eachother until we met at the alter.

 

Now, every time he wears it I am instantly transported back to that moment. It's like a little gift every time he puts it on...haha They say scents evoke the strongest memories....

 

Mine was Vera Wang, the orginal wedding scent (she has like 4 I think).

 

Hubby wore L'Homme by Yves St. Laurant. Both very light and happy scents.

 

Good luck!

I completly agree with you starchild! Certain smells always bring back memories and I want to have a signature fragrance for this special day. Everytime I (he) smells it, I want that smell to take us right back to our wedding day.


Also, another thing that is making this so hard for me is that I wear different scents almost everyday. It just depends on the kind of mood that I'm in. I'm a nut......I go CRAZY at the Victoria Secret and Bed & Bath Semi Annual salessmile41.gif and pretty much own every different type of lotion that they carry in the store.

So far, I like D&G Light Blue and whatdouknow.....Britney Spears Fantasy. I'm gonna keep looking & smelling around.

Oh I love Light Blue! My mom started wearing it not too long before the wedding, so I didn't want to smell like her...lol Otherwise it would have been a contender for sure!

 

I've never smelled Bright Crystal or Romance but I'll check them out!

I'm also a believer in the scent association. I normally wear Chanel Mademoiselle. For the wedding I got Jo Malone While Jasmine and Mint. Now, when I want to go back to the vaca and the wedding - I just wear that!

I like that rationale...hmmm perhaps you changed my opinion.

Yari you have plenty of time to explore scents and see if something catches your fancy. I went back and forth on the Vera Wang but settled on it because it just smelled right to me. I did pay $75 but I think that was fair for the set (spray bottle, mini purse bottle, shower gel, and lotion).

 

I opened the box for the first time when I showered before the wedding. The shower gel, lotion, and perfume is stuck in my head forever. Putting it on just makes me feel better, you know?

 

If possible, getting a mini-bottle of your scent is cool. A BM kept it on her and refreshed my fragrance like every 30 minutes (helpful in the humidity).

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
