There is a growing trend to scent your wedding venue, especially at DIY and raw spaces. Whether it’s to clear the air from the aroma caused by food or simply to influence the overall wedding mood for the evening, couples are now wishing to fill the wedding with pleasant and memorable fragrances.
Scents can be incorporated in three different forms:
- Sprays/Ambience mists
Candles are a relatively cost-effective way of creating the right atmosphere.
A fragranced candle typically throws its scent better if it is burnt for at least three hours. You can have the venue light the candles well in advance, in order to fully enjoy its fragrance.
Soft, floral fragrances work well for daytime or summer weddings. Spicier scents with notes of vanilla and/or sandalwood can be used in the evening or for a winter wedding.
If your venue doesn’t allow naked flames and you still want to add fragrance to your rooms, then consider using diffusers.
Diffusers work really well in places where you want it to smell nice but can't keep an eye on, for example, a candle. Reed diffusers are also longer-lasting than candles. They have no flames and are very practical to use.
There are two kinds of diffusers:
- Reed diffusers
- Intelligent diffusers
Reed diffusers: It comes in a simple jar, filled with refillable concentrated essential oils and reeds that give off the most beautiful scent for hours and hours.
Here's an article that shares tips on how to use a reed diffuser.
Intelligent diffusers: Intelligent diffusers are operated and controlled by a smart device and can be turned on and off at any point. You can also change the intensity of the fragrance at any time. It leaves no solvents in the air or any residual deposit. This makes them ideal for venues that do not allow candles or sprays or venues like castles, museums, historical venues and estates, etc.
For a stronger impact, opt for spritzing Eau de Parfum, as these have a higher oil content than an Eau de Toilette.
