Have you given thought as to how to choose a wedding perfume? My Grandmother was a woman who loved fragrances and underscored the importance of choosing the right perfumes for your wedding day. She wasn't rich but I remember her giving short lectures in the house with my many aunts as her audience on the importance of smelling good - apart from looking good - on your big day, and the rest of your life as a woman. "You have to be beautiful and don't let yourself go by being a poorly-dressed, awful-smelling wife," she would say. Learning a lesson or two from her, here is my list of seven amazing perfumes for your wedding day that you might want to try out:

1 Very Irresistible L'eau En Rose by Givenchy

This one has a very feminine smell that reminds me of pale pink dresses and pearl earrings. It reminds me of spring when everything beautiful blooms and fills the place with so much happiness. Choosing among several perfumes for your wedding day? Try a whiff of this one. You won't regret it!
2 L.I.L.Y by Stella McCartney

This perfume promises the smell of a new morning and it doesn't disappoint. L.I.L.Y stands for "Linda, I Love You," Stella's Dad's nickname for her Mom. It's a fragrance that brings with it history, art, and chemistry and so wearing it is like being part of a grandiose mix of arts and sciences. The name itself strongly points to love, so why not spray some of it on your big day?
3 Loveswept by Philosophy

Loveswept is a new fragrance in the Philosophy line and my first try of Philosophy's line of fragrances. It was introduced by a friend during a bridal shower I recently attended and it reminds me of the feeling of being inspired and motivated to do my daily tasks. Made with bergamot, citrus, pink jasmine, lotus, and passion fruit, Loveswept commands you to go head over heels and let it go.
4 Madly Kenzo by Kenzo

It's your last day of being single on this earth, so maybe you can be a little wilder by wearing this one by Kenzo! The creators say it's an addictive combination of heliotrope flower and Virginian cedar with hints of orange blossoms, rose, incense, and a light touch of vanilla. Sounds fun and sensual!
5 Beautiful Love by Estée Lauder

On this day, you just need to be the ever beautiful you. The very woman that he fell in love with. The woman who will walk down the aisle and meet him in the altar to celebrate your beautiful love. Described as passionate, vibrant, and romantic, this perfume is made of white freesia and magnolia mixed with juicy mango, plus a variety of flowers that include gardenia, rose, and jasmine among others. Confession? I wore this on my wedding day!
6 Princess by Vera Wang
Get it here: ulta.com
Vera Wang wrote, "Princess is about claiming something magical and mystical in your life. It's all of the characteristics that we would want to possess and what resides in all of us young or old." A combination of lady apples, Tahitian tiare flower, and vanilla chiffon, this one makes you feel like a royalty on the best day of your life.
7 Chanel No. 5 by Chanel
Get it here: chanel.com
When none of the above perfumes matter to you, go ahead and run to the classic: Chanel No. 5. My Mom describes this as the ultimate standard of female perfumes. When you wear Chanel No. 5, nothing can go wrong. Marilyn Monroe is your witness.
