In Ancient Greece, rosemary was considered a sacred herb and burned on the altars of the gods. Today, it’s still reserved for special occasions such as weddings, where a sprig is added to the bride’s bouquet, headpiece, dress and even her hair. Modern-day Greek goddesses rinse their tresses with rosemary water, a “tea” made by boiling water and adding the fragrant herb. Not only does rosemary leave hair soft and shiny, says Megan Garmers, founder of MG Hair and Makeup, it’s also believed to improve memory (way to ensure you imprint the day forever in your mind!). An added bonus: Rosemary is also thought to be an aphrodisiac.

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
