When it comes to your wedding day, you want every detail to be in place. San Antonio Wedding Planner Ansonya Burke at Principles in Action understands that planning a wedding means focusing on the little things–from embossed place cards and finding something blue to choosing the smell of the groom’s cologne. The scent of a wedding can leave a lasting impression–from that day forward, you will have the recollection of your wedding every time you smell or experience the scent you choose to wear that day.
Choose a fragrance that is noticeable, yet not too strong. You want a scent that is masculine and clean, but lifts the spirits as well. For example, if you’re having a summer wedding, cologne from the oceanic family–a clean set of fragrances which remind you of the ocean air–would be appropriate.

4- Prada Amber by: Prada
Mellow and sophisticated cologne for men that would reprise the theme of their eponymous feminine fragrance, namely amber. This version highlights four stages: an amber accord predictably, a traditionally masculine fougère (ferny) accord, a fresh cologne accord, and a suede accord, by interweaving notes of citrus (bergamot, mandarin, neroli), spices & flowers (cardamom, saffron, geranium, orange blossom), balsams & warm notes (myrrh, musk, labdanum, sandalwood, tonka bean, vanilla, patchouli) and la pièce de resistance soft, supple leather.
5- Black Orchid by: Tom Ford
Incredibly luxurious scent. While sultry woods and rich dark accords help to bring out the skin’s natural perfume, the jet black, art deco-inspired bottle adds to the fragrance’s overall glamour.
Regardless of what you choose, you want your selection to be easily accessible for purchase so you can wear it through the years to bring back memories of your special day. And last but not least, don’t forget to wear it on the honeymoon!
