Social distancing restrictions aren't going anywhere anytime soon, but as vaccine rollouts continue to gain steam, people are finding ways to host small celebrations they may have postponed in 2020. In particular, we're expecting smaller wedding ceremonies and outdoor receptions to come back in the next few months. The CDC still recommends that people avoid large gatherings this spring, and for any event, people should maintain six feet of distance from others and wear well-fitting masks.
If you end up attending a spring wedding, it’s the perfect opportunity to invest in a new outfit that will make you feel like a million bucks. If you're not sure what to wear to a spring wedding, here are 16 spring wedding dresses and outfits that are sure to wow.
