This bride had her wedding dress converted to Coronavirus masks for her family! #Features#arizona#coronavirus wedding#wai-ching Updated May 20 2020 (Posted May 15 2020) Ariel arielmstallings Photo by Sierra Blanco Photography Tina and her partner Jerry had a small, intimate mountaintop wedding in Sedona. The bride bought her dress from a longtime Offbeat Bride vendor, Wai-Ching Studios. As Tina said, "I was so lucky to come across Wai-Ching Studios while I was shopping for non-traditional dresses. I fell in love with an ombré pink dress that I knew would look incredible among the red rocks in Arizona where we were planning to say our vows!" And, I mean… she was right. Look at the way that sunlight shone through that ombre silk. WOWZA! Photo courtesy of the bride To celebrate her third anniversary, Tina asked Wai-Ching Studios if her wedding dress could be converted to have a high-low hem for their first anniversary… and then asked if the excess fabric could be used to create coronavirus face masks for the whole family! As Chrissy Wai-Ching told me, "The bride’s request felt like destiny — somehow there was exactly the right amount of excess silk for her whole family!" Photo by Chrissy Wai-Ching Chrissy told me, "I would just add that the silk has actually been amazing for masks. It blocks a surprising amount of particles (although I’m not making any medical claims!) and is extremely breathable. The silk makes for a beautiful mask you tolerate wearing for hours. I’ve made well over 500 masks at this point!" She's selling them on Etsy.
