your five senses



The significance of connecting to all 5 senses for a truly memorable wedding day that will last a lifetime








Hearing
Picking your wedding song.  I know some people agonize over this for a long period of time and for others they simply choose a song that holds the most importance to them as a couple. Your chosen song may reveal a lot of information about the taste and personality of whom you both are. If you are having a difficult time deciding on which song to hear during your first dance,  look for lyrics that speak to your relationship together.  Open your heart and your song will follow.


Sight 
Make your wedding day about you and your other half.  Add special touches to each guest table or have photos of you as a couple beautifully framed and displayed throughout.  Pretend that your guest don’t know you but once they arrive to the reception they get a clear picture of whom you both are together as a couple.  It is also important to choose your wedding photographer wisely,  a great photographer will not oversee all the little details, he/she will photograph them!  This is all part of the story you are telling about your wedding day,  don’t forget… your wedding album is the final product of your day. When you look back at your album years down the road, it will transport you to the day you both said “I do”.

 

Touch 
Weddings are such a romantic affair, there is no holding back. I realize it can be a little awkward when all eyes are on you but this is the day when your guest expect to see a lot of PDA, so go ahead and show your affection towards your new husband/wife. Feel the new wedding band around his finger or touch the delicate lace on her wedding dress that she may get preserved for your future daughter someday.  After all, the largest organ in the human body is the skin.


Smell 
Your scent can trigger a core memory.  The perfume/cologne worn by the bride and groom on their wedding day is a small detail that may help you remember that special day forever.  Your scent will not only set the mood but will also act as a powerful memory trigger and always remind you of your wedding day.  I’m not saying to wear your every day perfume, I’m talking about a new scent that is specifically worn for the first time on your wedding day.  So go ahead and splurge on that perfume, this is the time to do it!


Taste 

Making a taste last forever.  After photographing lots of weddings I have noticed that some choose to serve a less expensive champagne or wine to guests, reserving a high-end vintage for just the bride and groom.  Pick something special that you two enjoy drinking and make it a tradition to sip on that vintage only on your anniversary day.  This will truly be something special when the two of you click champagne glasses and wish each other a happy anniversary for many years to come!  Cheers!
