Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and besides picking out a card that is the right balance between undying devotion and cool nonchalance, the pressure is on to plan the perfect date. Brisbane has some great unique date options or you can keep it classic by grabbing dinner at one of Brisbane’s new restaurants. We’d suggest combining one or more of these ideas with a Candlelight Concert for the ultimate romantic plan. Enjoy live music surrounded by hundreds of flickering candles in one of Brisbane’s most iconic venues. Here are our top 3 reasons why attending a Candlelight Concert is the perfect way to spend Valentine’s Day this year.
1. There’s Nothing As Romantic As Candlelight
When we think of a romantic evening, we often picture a candlelit dinner for two. What is it about the soft, dim lighting of candlelight that puts us in such a romantic mood? The answer is actually backed by science! Low light tells our body that it’s almost time for bed, and this automatically allows us to feel more relaxed and at ease. The ambient lighting also gives off the perception of warmth which can induce a feeling of emotional intimacy.
2. Classical Music Calms The Nerves
There’s nothing as nerve-wracking as a first date, and if you’re looking for an activity that will help calm those butterflies, we’ve got you covered. Listening to classical music can cause the heart rate and breathing to slow, and emotional distress to decrease. Classical music also lowers cortisol levels in the brain which can help lessen anxiety and lower blood pressure. So you’ll feel at ease and ready to enjoy the evening.
3. You Can Dress To Impress
Use this Valentine’s Day as an opportunity to ‘wow’ your date with your incredible style! This is your chance to don that suit and tie that has been gathering dust at the back of your cupboard, or slip into that dress you bought months ago but just never had an occasion to wear. Make the moment last forever by adding a Snapshot by Candlelight to your ticket option and getting a professional photograph of you and your date to remember this special evening.
