A year ago you would never in your wildest dream imagine the thought that face masks would make their way into bridal fashion. Yet, here we are. It’s a sign of the times, especially since the many health agencies emphasize that everyone wears face coverings in public for the foreseeable future. If you do plan to host your wedding during the COVID-19 era, then masks are a serious consideration. Here are some favourites just for you (and your guests, too!).
Everyone from high-end bridal designers to mainstream retail stores to Etsy sellers have jumped on the face mask “trend,” giving brides, grooms and guests plenty of rather fashionable options to wear. Of course, none of these masks are medical-grade and should only be worn as a precaution. However, many are machine washable and include a pocket to add your own filter.
Whether you’re a classic or boho bride, bold or romantic, there are some wedding masks that are fit for your wedding and beyond.
Not only are these cotton face masks fit for a casual bride, they’re practical, too! Since no one knows when face coverings won’t be necessary in public, these eyelet masks can be worn beyond the wedding.
There are few things more bridal than lace so if you’re going to wear a covering down the aisle, why not have it be adorned in lace? And even if you are wearing a white lace dress on the big day, this look won’t be too matchy-matchy because the mask is actually a subtle beige.
Bridal designer Claire Pettibone put her couture spin on bridal masks with this ivory covering. Accented by lace butterflies and silk ties, this is a simple yet romantic option for the altar. Plus, for every mask sold, Claire Pettibone is donating one to healthcare and frontline workers.
This embroidered face mask might be a bit of a splurge for your wedding day needs, but since it is handcrafted by the seamstresses at Carine’s Bridal Atelier, it may well be worth it. The mask even comes in two different sizes so you can guarantee the best fit for your face.
If you’re wearing all-over lace down the aisle, then your wedding mask should match. Covered in French lace, this mask also comes in several color options in case classic white doesn’t suit our style.
For the time being, your bridesmaids will need to wear face coverings beyond your wedding day so have them wear a style that will last. In true bridesmaid fashion, these linen masks can be monogrammed and come in packs of 3, 4 and 5! Plus, the warm tones of pink, beige and burnt orange remind of us a cozy, backyard summer wedding–what’s not to like!
These are inspirational. You may want to source a local seamstress who is making masks. They would love a commission for your wedding. Remember to give them enough time to manufacture the number of masks for your wedding.
