The Best Wedding Day Face Masks For Brides, Grooms and Guests In The UAE
Unless your wedding was masquerade-themed, who would have thought ‘face mask’ would ever be part of your wedding day must-buy list? Then in 2020 life changed! For the foreseeable future face masks are not just part of the list they’re at the very top, as we all adhere to government-regulated health and safety guidelines by wearing face masks in public for our protection. While large wedding parties cannot yet commence in the UAE due to the pandemic, wedding ceremonies at religious venues can take place with a limited number of people, all of whom have to wear a face mask. Whether you’re getting married with an intimate ceremony like this or you’re waiting for your big day when everyone can attend, plan ahead and discover the perfect mask for the bridal party, groomsmen and your wedding guests.
Couture Bridal Masks — Michael Cinco
Showcasing a beautiful, elegant and unique beaded face mask design as part of his new Autumn/Winter 20/21 collection, Dubai-based bridal fashion designer Michael Cinco will surely make brides reconsider face mask apparel as a statement-making, outfit-topping, gorgeous finishing touch, instead of a style inconvenience. Revealed at Dubai Design District at the end of August, the Filipino designer debuted a collection aptly entitled ‘The Impalpable Dream of Hope’ and complemented a fabulous couture bridal gown with an exquisitely-cut face mask designed in partnership with Perla Bride. Cinco, who has dressed royalty and celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez and Lady Gaga, will make every bride feel like they’re putting on their best face by wearing such an elevated bridal accessory on their wedding day, no matter how small and intimate the ceremony is. Price on request.
