There's a new must-have accessory in town: the wedding mask. While this may not be a look you expected to be sporting at any celebration, there are some surprisingly chic options.
Face coverings at weddings could well become standard for the foreseeable future due to the impact of Coronavirus on weddings. Their primary function is as a precautionary measure to help prevent the spread of the virus. But that doesn't mean you have to totally compromise on style when it comes to choosing wedding masks. If you're the couple, of course you want to look your best on the big day; if you're attending a celebration, it makes sense to choose wedding masks that go with your carefully chosen outfits. You may also want to thank your wedding party by gifting them personalised masks they can use again.
We're not talking surgical or medical grade masks, but UK government guidelines say wearing a face covering, particularly in enclosed areas, can help us protect each other from Covid-19. From bridal face masks to comfortable coverings for guests, we've found the most stylish wedding masks out there.

The mask is made from four layers of linen, a popular material for face coverings as it's soft, light and breathable, and has antibacterial properties. The brand also offer pleated versions with adjustable nose bridges.

We're not forgetting the younger wedding guests - this knit mask is suitable for up to age 10 and has been designed with comfort in mind.
