To say couples getting married during the coronavirus have had to get creative is a major understatement. Between implementing social distancing protocols, reducing their guest lists, and staging sanitizing stations all over their venue, couples getting married during the pandemic have to face a host of planning challenges. Face masks—the accessory of 2020—have also become a staple for pandemic weddings.
Specifically, if you live in a state where there is a statewide mask ordinance, then you’ll have to find a way to incorporate these lifesaving accessories into your special day. While face coverings may not create the wedding photos you had hoped for, they don’t have to ruin your wedding day. Here are some tips for incorporating face covering into your wedding day.
Monogram Your Masks and Provide Them to Guests
A great way to add some creativity to your wedding’s face masks is to monogram them. You can custom design your face masks with your wedding theme colors and even have the bride’s family wear one color and the groom’s another. Providing masks for guests to wear will also allow your photos to be more uniform.
Have a Mask Creativity Competition
Another great way to get creative with face coverings at your wedding is to have a mask competition among your guests. Creating different categories—such as the funniest or most creative mask—is a great way to use face coverings as a fun activity during your reception.
Get a Photo Booth for Your Reception
Getting a photo booth for your reception is a great way to provide a fun activity for your guests. Plus, face coverings will provide a natural prop that your guests can have fun with while taking pictures. Additionally, your friends and family can keep their photos as a souvenir from your special day.
Have a Masquerade Theme for Your Reception
What better way to naturally incorporate face masks into your wedding than to have a masquerade-themed reception? This will allow you to embrace the mask requirements in a creative way.
Let Your Other Wedding Accessories Shine
If you have to wear your face mask down the aisle, you might want to consider getting some other wedding accessories that really pop, such as a chic veil. Having some statement accessories will make your mask less distracting.
Let Your Photographer Get Creative with Your Wedding Photos
Just because you may have to have your face mask on does not mean that your wedding photos will be ruined. Let your professional photographer get creative with staging your group photos. By utilizing artistic elements—such as depth and exposure—your photographer can make your wedding photos look great.
