A Special Scent for All Your Wedding Stuff!

There’s no stronger trigger of emotion and memory than a particular, familiar smell. So here’s an idea: Give your wedding its own unique fragrance—one that will both set the tone for, and forever evoke memories of, your most important occasion, your one perfect day. Online custom stationery boutique 5 Thirteen Designs has just launched WedScents, a line of heavenly fragrance kits designed for the bride to delicately scent all of her wedding essentials—from save-the-dates to favors to fabric elements. A collection of four introductory fragrances includes Citrus Blossom (bright, crisp, outdoorsy), Forever Fresh (herbal, gardeny), Captivating Waters (cool, coastal) and our hands-down fave for Houston weddings, Radiant Glamour—a sexy, feminine blend of fresh-picked florals. Each set includes a mist-applicator fragrance bottle, application ideas and 25 themed note cards. We LOVE the idea of tucking these into your b’maids’ spa kits or gift bags, or using them for favors at your bridal shower or pre-wedding luncheon (did we mention that the packaging is beautiful?). Breathe deep, dolls. This is a fun one!!

Shower Favor Idea: The Soap & Paper Factory

You may want to pass this post along (subtly) to whoever’s planning your shower, Houston bride. Trust us, she’ll be glad you did.

We especially love S&P’s solid perfumes—little travel-size, purse-size pots filled with heavenly fragrance in solid form. Made from pure jojoba and beeswax, in aromas including Jasmine, Gardenia and Orange Blossom, S&P’s solid perfumes make great take-home goodies for girls of all ages. And they’re pretty enough to fit right in on an all-dolled-up tabletop.

We’re also fans of S&P’s divine scented beeswax candles, packaged in elegant Italian glass, which can be cleaned and reused for water, wine or your favorite Chardonnay. Yay!
