I know I’ve shared this before, but it’s worth revisiting again for anyone who missed the first post!
I was working behind the chair while I was engaged, and my engagement lasted about 13 months. I received a ton of advice and suggestions from my clients during that time, but the best piece of advice regarding the day of my wedding has stuck with me ever since.
And sadly, I can’t remember who shared it with me!
A client told me to pick out a brand new perfume to start wearing on your wedding day. Maybe get used to it on the day of your bridal shower, or at the rehearsal dinner. Then wear it on your wedding day and through the honeymoon.
When you get back home and settle into your new married life, stop using the perfume.
This is where there really sweet part comes in: keep the perfume somewhere safe so it can last for years, and wear it on every anniversary. I promise you that upon smelling it, you’ll be taken right back to your wedding day or honeymoon and have the fondest memories.
Justin and I both do this and I always notice when he wears his wedding day/honeymoon perfume. It reminds me of walking around Charleston, which is where we went after the wedding.
If you are getting married, or have something else significant coming up that you want to remember, tie a fragrance to it.
