To the couples getting married during this pandemic, masks have quickly evolved to become beautiful, fun and personalized and an integral part of weddings. They can be an accessory to your wedding outfits and a fun element that your guests go home talking about. To help you get inspired and find the right masks as your plan your South Asian wedding or other events, we put together a list of five companies worth taking a look at.
Glamorous masks to match your wedding outfits: For $20-30 per piece (less expensive if you buy in bulk), B Anu Designs offers a range of sequin, brocade, and embroidered masks on silk and cotton in many colors. They also custom design masks to match your outfit or for your guests to personalize their experience. For every mask purchased through them, they donate 15% of proceeds to Edgewood Center for children and families, supporting youth through life's challenges via behavioral and mental health services.
Elegant masks for your early winter / spring wedding: At $20 per mask, Sithara by Sriya offers beautiful cotton georgette with crepe back satin lined masks. With the gorgeous embroidery and floral patterns, they're perfect for your bridesmaids or your favorite aunties. Sriya started her academic career focusing on helping people through science and medicine. After seeing how fashion can have a profound influence on customers' lives through her work with a South Asian clothing marketplace, she decided to build Sithara, "an embodiment of elegance, simplicity & versatility."
Back to the basics with sequins: At $30 for a 3-pack ($10 each), LUKH Studio offers a cotton variety pack with black, beige and golden sequined masks. They're easy to match with any outfit and add just a little bit of sparkle at your special event. LUKH donates a 100% of the proceeds from mask purchases to United We Mask and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America.
Fun, Desi-inspired and reversible masks: At less than $15 a mask, Modern Desi offers bright colored reusable and reversible masks that include a Desi slogan. They even allow you to customize sizes for kids. We love the bright and bold colors as they go well for any guests who want to "make some noise" in the baraat! Modern Desi began as a passion project to create bridal shower games and wedding-oriented items for those who live outside the homeland. The Founder, Aanal Patel, has since expanded outside of wedding parties and ventured into anything and everything she can create, embracing two unique and beautiful cultural identities fused together in seamless yet empowering products.
Budget-friendly, personalized disposable masks: At less than $3 a mask, For Your Party.com offers customizable masks for your guests. You can either select one of their designs like Quarantined for Life (shown below) or Spread Love, Not Germs, or you can design your own mask with customized text, artwork, and color. Sari Mintz started For Your Party.com in 2004 to help customers easily design personalized party accessories while experiencing best-in-class service. Visit their profile to learn more.
