The Ultimate Guide to Finding the Perfect Wedding-Day Mask

Matching bride and groom masks

It may not be the wedding attire accessory you want, but it’s one that you’ll need for your big day—a face mask. Whether you’re a fan of wearing a mask or not, it’s an accessory that will probably be around for a while, especially for large gatherings.

The good news is that there are many options to choose from! You’re sure to find something that fits you and your spouse’s style.

So, what type of masks should you consider for your wedding day? You’ll need to think about what you and your groom will wear, along with your wedding party and if you’ll provide masks for your guests. Here are a few things to consider:

  • Do you want something reusable or something to throw away at the end of the night?
  • Do you want something customized or generic?
  • Do you want to match your theme or color scheme?
  • Do you want the masks to be the same design or different depending on the person wearing them? (Example: one design for bridesmaids, another design for groomsmen)

Talk these options over with your future spouse and decide what’s best for you! There’s no wrong answer, it just depends on what you want for your wedding day.

Masks for Your Guests

The first thing you’ll want to determine is how much you want to spend on masks and if you want to provide them for your guests. If you decide to buy basic disposable masks, you can purchase them in bulk from a major retailer like Walmart or Costco.

If you want something a little more personalized like a specific color or your wedding details stamped on the masks, online stores like Amazon or Etsy are your best bet. Not sure how many to order? A good rule of thumb is to take your final guest count (the number of RSVP’s you received) and order 10-15 additional masks.
