10 Body Lotions and Creams That Will Leave You Smelling Amazing on Your Wedding Day
So you'll smell great from head to toe on your big day.
You spent hours interviewing makeup artists and days picking out the right shade of foundation. You've reviewed—and rejected—dozens of lipstick shades, and your hairstylist knows every last detail of our courtship. Now, take your meticulously trained eye for detail, and apply it to the rest of your body. Literally.
In addition to spritzing on a divine scent for the big day, consider slathering your skin in something that smells equally fantastic. Applying the right body cream on your wedding day will keep you hydrated and dewy from first dance to last; it will also keep your skin silky, smooth, and ready to be embraced. Here are the most decadent, gorgeously scented body creams on the market, whether you dream of lemon trees or love exotic roses.
You'll want to test out any product before you walk down the aisle to avoid surprise allergic reactions. Also, be sure to try the cream with the perfume you plan to wear, in order to see (or sniff) if the two scents are complementary. Finally, be very careful to let the product dry before putting on that precious dress. Stains and silk don't generally match.
