A year ago, no one could have predicted that a face covering would be a must-have bridal accessory for 2020. But with mask-wearing now part of daily lives, it only makes sense that a bride would want a beautiful one that's worthy of her special day.

Many brides may be looking for something a little fancier than a plain cotton or medical face covering, and wedding designers are rushing to release their own masks made with lace, silk, beads or embroidered embellishments.

On the couture side, designer Jackson Wiederhoeft also included masks in his spring/summer 2021 bridal collection. He created one stunning covering using white quilted silk taffeta, hand-stitched taffeta bows and crystal teardrop embroidery.

He also created a sheer mask in white nylon tulle.

The designer noted that this mask is more for aesthetic purposes and not for protecting against COVID-19. Paul at Forged in the North

“Disclaimer: This mask is not intended as a protection against COVID-19 or any other airborne disease,” Wiederhoeft noted in the product description. “The fabric is extremely porous and will not filter small particles.”

This can be a stressful time to get married with many ceremonies either scaled down or postponed. But for all the brides who are still walking down the aisle this summer, their “something new” may just be a beautiful mask.
