If you’ve got a wedding on the horizon, you may need to add an extra accessory to your look – a face mask. Not only will it stop the spread of COVID-19 germs, but it’ll add something to your wedding ensemble, too. As public health guidelines for social gatherings loosen across Canada and you start to work social distancing into your wedding plans, wearing face masks in public could be the new normal, and the wedding industry is here to help.

We were inspired to learn that renowned bridal designer Ines Di Santo transformed her Toronto workroom from making luxury bridal gowns to protective hospital gowns for healthcare workers. Other designers have redirected resources to manufacturing face masks for front line workers, as well as, for their wedding clients. With this in mind, we’ve gathered up some of the creative bride and groom face mask designs in the marketplace right now to give you some ideas. Note that supply is limited as businesses do their best to source materials and meet demand while following safety guidelines.

Here are some wedding face mask designs in a variety of styles.

Katie May Bridal Face Masks

LA-based bridal designer, Katie May has designed a variety of super chic bridal face masks while also supplying utility masks to front line workers—they've reached their goal of donating 20,000. They are now donating a percentage of proceeds for every mask sold to No Kid Hungry. All their wedding face masks are handmade in Los Angeles (they’ll ship to Canada) and feature two adjustable head straps to ensure comfort and security. Here are a few of their bridal styles. P.S. they are now selling kids face masks, too!

Toronto-based seamstress Carol Adcock typically makes costumes for dance performances and plays, but with the shows being cancelled, she turned her talents to making and donating face masks for Michael Garron Hospital in Toronto. It’s in Carol’s nature to be helpful and creative and so she decided to help couples with wedding face masks, too. Her designs are based on available supplies, including her own archive of fabrics.
