Masking Up for Love
We are definitely living in the strangest of times. Never could we have predicted a world in which a face mask would be the must-have accessory when attending a wedding. However, here we are residing in an era where covering your face in public is recommended, if not required, for the foreseeable future.
For those who have spent months, if not years, planning their wedding, this day most certainly looks much different than one could have expected. And while some couples have chosen to postpone indefinitely, many are ready to start their lives together and are electing to carry on in a more intimate fashion.
As we persevere through this wedding season, being able to embrace this historic period while also taking precautionary measures is key when celebrating the day. Whether you are hosting your own wedding or plan on attending one as a guest, wearing a mask is a simple way to protect those around you while also helping to stop the spread. We've found some gorgeous and luxe options to help keep everyone comfortable so they can social distance safely and in style.
