The masquerade wedding theme is special in that it combines a certain classy vibe that you would want for a wedding, as well as the fun of dressing up and the mystery of wearing masks.

Halloween themes, All-white, and 1920?s ballroom decor all can be used to adorn the wedding location.
The decoration, color scheme, and outfits for the ceremony and reception usually vary from a scary, bloody, Halloween theme, to a more elegant, stylish masquerade ball theme. This theme is very flexible, and it’s really up to you what you’d like to do with it!
Masquerade Masks for Weddings
Great masquerade masks are what really makes this wedding theme unique and fun. There are so many different types of masks that can be worn, which allows all of the guests that are attending to be able to bring their own personal style to their outfits and create a look that will never be forgotten.
Black and silver, black and gold, and black and white are some of the most popular colors for masquerade masks for weddings. In the above pictures, you can see two examples of our most popular masks for weddings. Usually, the bride and groom have their own style of mask, and then the members of the wedding party will wear masks that are coordinated and matching. This makes for a really special look, especially for the wedding photos!
Wedding Masks for Couples
One of the most exciting parts of going to a wedding ceremony with a masquerade theme is the chance for the guests to choose a pair of matching masks that compliment each other. It’s a great way for the couple to express their own unique style in unison, and to really make their experience their own.
Couples can choose to go with more traditional styles of masks and simply choose matching colors, or they can pick a set of masks that are unique and really makes them stand out from the crowd together. They may choose to wear scary masks, or a set that showcases a particular look, such as 1920′s chic.
Keep in mind though that it is customary for the bride and groom to choose the colors and style of masks that they’d like to be worn at their wedding, so be respectful of their wishes. Above are just two of the masquerade mask couples sets for weddings that we feature on our website.
Wedding Masks for Grooms
Wedding masks for the groom can come in many styles. Lots of guys want something with less decoration and a little more masculine, but there are plenty who go with a more decorated look as well. The most important thing for a men’s wedding mask is that it matches and compliments his bride’s mask.
The mask above is one of the more classic and traditional styles of wedding mask. These are very popular for masquerade weddings, along with the Italian & hand-decorated masks that we have in our collection of unique designs.
Masquerade Masks for Brides
One of the most popular styles of wedding masks for brides on their big day are masks on a stick. These are great because they give you freedom to hold a mask up to your face for photos when you’d like to, but the mask doesn’t have to press against your face and interfere with that expensive makeup and hair-do!
Many brides choose to get masks in this style for that reason. Also, they give you that stylish, elegant look that many women really love.
Bridal masquerade masks are usually in all white to match the dress, but more and more women have been choosing more risque colors and designs in recent years. Above, we picture a few of the handmade original designs that we offer to our beautiful bridal customers!
Masquerade Wedding Gowns and Dresses
Masquerade wedding gowns can vary in style greatly, and can be highly customized to suit the style and personality of the bride and the wedding theme. A lot of women are unsure of what particular style or design a masquerade wedding dress is supposed to have, but there is no specific type of masquerade dress. Like the one in the picture above, they can be just like a traditional dress. Or, they can be made in a more classical masquerade style, with big billowing layers that hang down to the floor and beyond.
The most important thing about a masquerade dress is that it matches your mask well. Both the masquerade mask and wedding gown should compliment each other, with neither one overpowering the other.
As with the masks, usually the bride chooses one style of dress for herself, and the bridesmaids and maid of honor will wear a separate style of mask and dress, to distinguish themselves from the bride and keep the attention on her, where it’s supposed to be!
