Aromatherapy Wedding Bouquets

Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of 42nd U.S. president Bill Clinton, got married over the weekend to Marc Mezvinsky.  At Chelsea's request, the wedding invite list did not include a long list of celebrities and well known people - but was kept mainly to close family and actual friends.  However, I was more interested in Chelsea Clinton's wedding bouquet than anything else!

Some of you may know that I also have a web store called Aromatherapy Wedding.  It was inspired by my experience of working as a wedding hair assistant last summer - and because Sedona is a huge wedding destination.  My object was to bring some aromatherapy and fragrance into the life of brides as they began their new journey :)  However, many brides subconsciously choose to have aromatherapy in their wedding through their choice of wedding bouquets.  Fragrant flowers are a popular choice for wedding bouquets and include:

  • roses
  • gardenia
  • lilies
  • lily-of-the-valley
  • hyancinth
  • hydrangeas.
Chelsea Clinton's wedding bouquet was a simple, white ball of gardenia flowers - and apparently, "organic" and "natural" were of considerable importance to Chelsea in planning her wedding.

So, if you are getting married in the near future, or know someone who is, take the time to decide not just what color you want to add into your wedding - but what message you want the day to convey through the fragrance of your wedding bouquet too! Fragrances form memories that stay with us for a lifetime..... :)
