The Most Beautiful Wedding Fragrances
After you’ve said yes to the dress, the fun really begins in terms of accessorizing for your big day. From the veil to the shoes to the “something blue,” there are so many ways to make your bridal style unique, but one of the most personal touches is the perfume you choose to wear. A wedding fragrance will not only scent your day, but evoke memories of the celebration months—and years—later with just a few spritzes. Here are eight of our favorite perfumes that will make the day you’re going from Miss to Mrs. even sweeter.

If choosing flowers was the highlight of your wedding planning process, reach for a perfume that reminds you of your favorite blooms.

Pressing it into wrists or onto the side of your neck will feel extra luxurious on the morning of your wedding. Plus, the essence smells different on everyone and can be layered with other scents, resulting in a one-of-a-kind fragrance experience.
