  • Flowers. The classic and most natural way to add scent is with aromatic floral arrangements. You can also use dried arrangements on each table and add fragrance to them using room mists or scented oils.

  • Scented candles. Placing candles throughout the venue, on each guest table or even just the top table is a wonderful way to add fragrance and ambience to your wedding venue. (You would also need to check with the venue that they would allow candles to be lit.) Another option would be to give candles as wedding favours, personalised with the bride and grooms names and wedding date.

  • Reed diffusers and Aroma Stones. A simple way to add a subtle scent throughout a large area, placing them strategically in areas of air flow and where guests will pass often or as part of a centrepiece on each table.

  • Ceramic diffusers. Hanging ceramic diffuser stones throughout the venue to add subtle fragrance. Ceramic diffusers can be purchased in various designs and colours, these porous diffusers are sprayed with fragrance which then diffuses a gentle aroma.

  • Pot pourri. Adding dried florals and woods in decorative containers on tables and throughout the venue can add fragrance without being overpowering. Dried flowers hold scent well, you could even give smaller packages of this to your guests as wedding favours.
