Before we begin, don’t panic – according to current guidance, weddings in Scotland can only take place outdoors and you aren’t required to wear a face mask when you say ‘I do’.
However, face coverings will be mandatory in all indoor shops in Scotland as of this Friday, 10th July. And that means if you plan to start trying wedding dresses on soon, you’ll have to do so with a face mask on.
If you’re bummed out that this will take the shine off such a special shopping experience, don’t worry.
A Scottish wedding dress designer has come to the rescue by designing a stunning lace face mask for brides to make sure you can be safe and stylish when you try your wedding dress on!
Mirka Bridal Couture in Kirkcaldy, which reopened to brides at the weekend, has created two limited edition bridal lace face masks using off-cuts from the wedding dress fabric used in their bridal collections.
“This makes them zero waste too – perfect for sustainable brides,” says designer Mirka Jankowska.
Available in white and ivory lace, these profiled bridal face masks are made from two layers of cotton fabric and lace, with a bendable nose piece and adjustable spaghetti-style elastic for a comfortable fit.
Each lace face mask is made to order and costs £20, but Scottish Wedding readers can get it for £15 (that’s 25% off!) by entering the code SCOTWED at checkout.
And if that’s not your style, don’t worry, as the designer has a variety of face mask styles available including a tartan face mask.
