17 Fancy Face Masks for Weddings and Formal Events in 2021


It’s officially wedding season, folks! With people in the U.S. becoming increasingly vaccinated, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) releasing guidance about fully vaccinated people no longer needing to wear face masks outside, more and more weddings and gatherings are making their way onto our calendars. That said, the new face mask recommendations do not apply to crowded public settings, particularly when you’re in an environment with unvaccinated people. For those scenarios, you still need that mask on hand—er, on your face. But if you’re finally dressing up after months spent in sweatpants, you deserve the best mask for a wedding or formal event—a mask that is every bit as stylish as your ensemble.

Luckily, there are plenty of glamorous options on the market, which are as elegant, sparkly, floral, or modest as you want them to be (not to mention breathable, given these warmer seasons). Below, we’ve rounded up some of the most formal-friendly masks out there, from sequined bedazzlers to luxurious silk. Just make sure that your mask fits snugly to your face without gapping and consider double-masking as well, per the CDC’s guidance.
