Between guests Instagramming away with your thoughtfully crafted hashtag, your professional photographer and videographer, you've thought of every way to capture each moment of your wedding. But perhaps the most memorable way to relive the special day? Your wedding day fragrance. Not only does it make you smell great, but every time you spritz it afterward, it'll act as a nostalgic trigger of your walk down the aisle, first dance, and all the other romantic moments that make up your big day. Sure you could go with your signature scent, but these special bottles below are a great excuse to try something new. Whether you want something that complements your bouquet, a subtle woodsy perfume, or a fresh and lively spritz, there's a summery new option for you.

The gorgeous pink bottle looks great on your vanity, but it's way more than just pretty packaging. The scent inside — made from crisp notes of freesia, mimosa and violet leaf accord — is fresh, easy to wear, and won't compete with your bouquet.

Beach brides, look no further than this Mediterranean-inspired spritz. Bright, uplifting notes of grapefruit, honeysuckle, and Lily of the Valley complement a casual, destination setting. Then, there's the unexpected twist of Italian bergamot that grounds it and makes the scent last throughout the night with a single spritz.

Just like the rest of your wedding-day aesthetic, this scent is packed with personality. Sandalwood, cedarwood, and musks anchor this otherwise floral-fruity fragrance. The more you smell it, the more you pick up its subtle nuances of tomato leaves, violet, and green mandarin. Plus, the portable rollerball size makes it easy to stash in your clutch for touch-ups throughout the night. ("POP" rollerball perfume, $22 for 0.25 oz., Stella McCartney available at Sephora)
