2023 Wedding Trends: Brides Unleash Inner Diva with Opera-Inspired Luxury Weddings
Mystic Side Opera is helping brides discover the opera to help create this ultra-unique themed wedding.
The opera-inspired luxury wedding theme is quickly becoming one of the most popular and sought-after wedding trends of 2023, particularly in Europe. This unique and elegant theme combines the grandeur and drama of the opera with the intimacy and romance of a wedding, making it the perfect choice for couples looking for a truly unforgettable experience.
One of the reasons why the opera-inspired theme is so perfect for a wedding is that it allows couples to truly personalize their event. They can choose from a wide range of operas, from classic favorites like "Carmen," "La Traviata" and "The Barber of Seville" or a more modern and opera-inspired production like "The Phantom of the Opera," (but be forewarned opera-enthusiasts will let you know that it's not really an opera) This allows couples to tailor the theme to their own tastes and interests, making their wedding truly unique and special.
When planning an opera-inspired wedding, it is important to start by choosing the right venue. An opera house or a grand ballroom would be the perfect setting to create the ambiance of an opera performance. The decoration should be elegant and fitting for the opera-inspired theme, consider using a lot of candles and red roses, these elements will help to set the scene and create a romantic atmosphere.
When it comes to the engagement party and rehearsal dinner, you can also incorporate the opera-inspired theme. For the engagement party, you can have a mini-opera performance or a singing competition among friends and family, for the rehearsal dinner, you can have a masquerade ball, where guests can dress up in costumes and masks.
For the music, you can choose a mix of classical opera tracks and modern pop songs that have been used in recent opera productions, for example, you can play "Nessun Dorma" from Puccini's Turandot during the ceremony and "All I Ask of You" from Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom of the Opera (again, not actually and opera) during the first dance.
When it comes to the reception, you can continue the opera-inspired theme by serving a range of sophisticated and elegant cocktails, such as a Prosecco and Elderflower Cocktail, or a Classic Martini. And as for food, you can go for a classic French or Italian cuisine, such as beef wellington, risotto or pasta, and of course, don't forget to serve Caviar on blinis as an appetizer.
However, one of the concerns of many couples is the cost of an opera-inspired wedding. But there are ways to make it affordable without sacrificing the elegance and grandeur of the theme. One way is to opt for a smaller, more intimate wedding, with a smaller guest list. This will help to reduce costs while still allowing you to create a truly special and unique event.
Another way to keep costs down is to opt for a DIY approach. You can make your own decorations and favors, and even do your own makeup and hair. This will help to cut down on costs without sacrificing the elegance and glamour of the theme.
The opera-inspired luxury wedding theme is a unique and elegant choice for couples looking for a truly unforgettable experience. With the right planning, it can be a perfect and affordable option for any budget. Remember to choose the right venue, the perfect music and create a personalized menu that reflects the couple's taste. With these tips and suggestions, you can create a truly magical and memorable event that your guests will be talking about for years to come.
