From sight, smell, touch and beyond – there are some sensory-driven decisions you can consider to ensure your memories of the day evoke the greatest of emotions. It’s all about looking and feeling the very best version of yourself.
Get your wedding planner or checklist out, pen at the ready, and get ready to take note as you read on for our tips on nailing your on-the-day details.
Pop the perfume
More than any other sense, smell is largely linked with memory. Spending some time selecting your on-the-day scent will ensure that reaching for the beautiful bottle at your anniversary or on special occasions, will bring your right back to the magical moment of saying “I do”.
There are no rules when it comes to accessorising, but earrings remain a firm favourite when it comes to pulling together your best bride look. Considering so much of the photographic memories of your day will show that beaming, blissful face – earrings are a gorgeous accompaniment.
Wearing a wedding veil is a time-honoured tradition that can take your bridal look to the next level. We’re spoilt for choice these days, and from length (tea, fingertip, cathedral, or other!), to fabric – lace-lined, embellished or sheer and simple, have some fun finessing your style by selecting the one that’s right for you.
Always wanted to splash out on a luxe fancy footwear, but always felt the timing is not quite right? There is no better time than your wedding day to splurge on a pair of heels you have always had your heart set on. Pick the right footwear and you can show them off for years to come.
A special symbolic moment of your day could be exchanging rings throughout your wedding ceremony. Have you spared a thought for how or where these rings might be housed? Personalised rings boxes or velvet slip pouches can not only provide function, but also make for a cute keepsake and complete your on-the-day accessories line-up beautifully.
Say I Do in style, with your love ode kept safe in a vow card or booklet, ready to be brought out throughout your ceremony. Not only will it look incredible, but is something you can treasure forever in the years to come.
When it comes to details, the gents can often be overlooked. But we’re putting our foot down on this and insisting accessories for your men are a must. Think gifting your groom a watch, beautiful bowties or sleek socks for the leading men and of course chic shoes that will complete their overall look.
