Your wedding is a day you will remember for the rest of your life — and if you plan it right, all your guests will remember it too. While beautiful decor and great entertainment can help make any event memorable, another way to do so is with fragrant flowers (after all, scent is the sense most closely tied to memory)! Here are some of the most fragrant flowers you can use in your wedding decor.


Hyacinths are a multiflora plant, which means that several blossoms grow from a single stem. Not only does this give you a whimsical burst of color (hyacinths typically grow in pink or purple), the cluster of flowers gives off a very powerful sweet scent – perfect for a spring wedding!


There’s no doubt in my mind that everyone reading this knows what lavender smells like. This beautiful purple flower has loaned its fragrance to soaps, candles, perfumes, and everything in between. If you want a classically calming scent for your ceremony, you can’t go wrong with some lavender decorations.


Like lavender, Jasmine is also a popular fragrance with perfumers the world over. However, this flower’s powerful scent comes in a delightfully delicate package. If you want to create an ambiance without using a ton of blossoms, jasmine should be your top pick.


If you want your wedding decor to have that romantic, feminine touch, peonies are almost a necessity. The peony has a very fresh smell, similar to that of a rose, and a shade of pink that varies from the palest hint to a deep fuschia.


Because of their large blossom, magnolias are a great choice as the central flower in a bride’s bouquet. They’re also a great choice for the bride who likes variety; while most magnolias have a lemony undertone, their scent varies from one variety to the next. With a little testing, you could create a unique combination of magnolia fragrance for your special day! And since they’re not available as a cut flower, it’s a great choice for a DIY bride with a magnolia tree.
