Ashleigh has been living in Charlotte since 2008 with her oversized yellow lab. She is a communications professional, grad student, runner, and lover of all things wedding! After attending 13 weddings in three years, it's now Ashleigh's turn to be at the altar. Join her as she blogs about her adventures in step-by-step wedding planning and tips for other brides-to-be!

Now that we are down to the wire, all I can think about is our honeymoon and how relaxing it is going to be laying on the beaches of Aruba for 11 days. Hopefully, I will only have minor details left to deal with in the weeks to come. Doesn’t every bride want to relax just a little before the big day?

Our sweet vendor, Greenleaf wants to make sure brides are relaxed and feeling their best on the big day. That’s why Greenleaf is offering two Carolina Bride readers the chance to win an ultimate relaxation fragrance package valued at over $100.

Each Fragrance Relaxation Package Includes: 2 Greenleaf Signature Candles, 2 Greenleaf Signature Reed Diffusers, 2 Greenleaf Linen Sprays and 3 Greenleaf Large, Small and Slim Sachets.

For relaxation our top recommendations for fragrances would be: Lavender, Haven and Radiant Waters.

Haven: Refreshing seashore breeze blended with lavender and jasmine flowers on a woody amber and sweet musk base.

Lavender: The calming essence of lavender, relaxing and pure.

Radiant Waters: Fresh green sparkle with spearmint and eucalyptus leaves blended in a transparent floral on a warm, woody tonka base.

You can use one of the Signature Reed Diffusers on a desk at work to stay calm and relaxed during the work day.

After a long day, you can light the Signature Candles and take a long bubble bath.

To stay relaxed on the road to and from all your bridal appointments, I suggest placing our sachets in car pockets or under vehicle seats for a soothing pop of fragrance while on the go. You can also place the sachets in a linen closet to keep bath towels and sheets smelling laundry-fresh.

When it is time to wind down at night, you can use one of the Linen Sprays. Gently spritz onto linens for a sweet send off to dream land. Greenleaf’s Classic Linen fragrance is really nice for the linen spray or sachets for the linen closet. Classic Linen is a fresh fragrance of spring air and clean water, wrapped like a sun-dried quilt with sweet floral and balsamic notes.

You can see all the ways Greenleaf suggests incorporating a signature fragrance into your wedding here.


Now, in order to be entered to win one of these fabulous relaxation packages, all you have to do is:

1. Like Greenleaf Gifts AND Carolina Bride on Facebook

2. Leave a comment telling us which fragrance you would pick and how you would use it to relax before your big day

3. Email editor@carolinabride.com with your Name, Address, Phone Number and Email Address with "Greenleaf" in the subject line.
