13 Spring Wedding Dresses To Shop Right Now

COVID chic

It’s spring wedding dress time… somehow… again. And yet, we’re still here, in the middle of a Pandemic, with not nearly enough vaccine to go around, planning small, socially distanced weddings. Bu you know what? That doesn’t mean you can’t have an AMAZING wedding dress.

I know, I know. Maybe you’re planning a “big” wedding later. Maybe it seems silly to wear an amazing spring wedding dress to a party in your backyard, or a Zoom celebration, or whatever it is you’re having. But here is what is up: we are in a pandemic. That is what’s happening. AND IT DOESN’T MAKE YOUR WEDDING ANY LESS REAL. Forget this “This is just the legal wedding and we’ll have a real wedding later” nonsense. Maybe you will… and then you’ll have an excuse for another amazing dress. Maybe you won’t… and then you’ll be glad you wore this amazing dress. But regardless, if you’re getting married this spring, we’re here to help you put something killer on your body.

As always when we round up wedding dresses, we try to find a little something for everyone. All body types and styles welcome and included. But because it’s a national crisis, we tried to round up wedding dresses under $500, because you don’t have to pay a lot to have an amazing dress. So let’s get this (socially distanced) party started. If you want WAY more spring wedding dresses (and why would you not) you can head over to our Pinterest 2021 Spring Wedding Dresses board. (And, if you’re looking for a more non-traditional take, we’ve also rounded up wedding jumpsuits and black wedding dresses.)

one shoulder pearl dotted spring wedding dress

Hayley Paige Pearl Gown via BHLDN

Scattered pearls are having a moment, and I’m not mad about it. This dress says “dreamy and hip elf queen,” and I’m here for it.

curve friendly tea length spring wedding dress

By Watters Mattea Gown via BHLDN

You know we always rep for curves, but I don’t know if any of us can rep harder for curves than this dress. (Can we agree the shoes look like loofas though, and skip them?)

pink and white wedding dress with a pink train

Monique Lhuillier Off-The-Shoulder Puff-Sleeve Belted Silk Gown via Saks Fifth Avenue

Bring the beat in! Look, there are not a lot of good things the Pandemic has brought us. But one of those things is fewer rules. Your wedding isn’t going to look like weddings that came before or after, so you might as well go bold. You can save your more traditional look for your big party later.

old hollywood glam two piece wedding dress

Ramona Gown by Dress the Population

Va. Va. VOOM. Classic Hollywood called, and it wants it’s dress back. (But we’re not giving it back, because it’s the perfect spring wedding dress.)

plus size tea length vintage style wedding dress

Unique Vintage Plus Size 1950s Champagne Tulle Lace Monte Carlo Wedding Dress 

I have always loved a short 1950’s style wedding dress (I wore one). The fact that this comes in all sizes makes it even better.

There is no drama like brocade drama. So bring your best crown to the party, because you came to rule.

This dress is a mix of subtle and sophisticated. I truly love a blush dress, and if it doesn’t say “spring wedding dress” I don’t know what does.

Dumin Lace Gown by Tadashi Shoji

Because lace sheath spring wedding dresses are for all of us.

Wedding dress with a short underskirt and long over skirt

Can’t decide if you want to go long or short? Do both, and get them talking.

This dress mixes that 90’s vibe with pure princess glam… but in a sophisticated fully adult way.

If your Mother-In-Law would really rather you wear white, tell her this stunning pink number is “just for your COVID wedding.” You don’t have to tell her it might be your only wedding.
