Masquerade: what is important to consider?

The tradition of masquerade balls dates back to the 15th century in Italy (later became popular in France). A masquerade ball was understood as a costume evening, during which a person plunged into the atmosphere of mysticism, mystery, intrigue and some permissiveness. An extravagant costume and mask helped to hide the guest's identity, which means that they allowed him to behave in any way without harming his reputation.

Later, masquerades became an occasion to try on an unusual costume and a chic mask, look elegant, flirt with other guests and discover the hidden potential. At your choice, the wedding portal offers two masquerade-style wedding options: a large-scale costume ball and an elite indoor party.
