Our Favourite Special Day Wedding Dresses From the 2017 Collection

by charlottesmith@hitched

I love my job – what could be better than spending an afternoon browsing through the beautiful 2017 wedding dress collection from Special Day?

With an endless array of dreamy wedding dresses, I’m now seriously obsessed with the new collection. Every time I think I’ve found my future wedding dress, I look at the next style and I fall in love all over again.

The dresses in the new collection all feature Special Day’s signature blend of elegant and sophistication, with some modern details added to the mix to keep the collection contemporary and on trend.

But enough talking, I can’t wait any longer to show you my favourite dresses from the collection! Which one is your favourite?


Imagine gliding down the aisle in the C17116 style from Special Day. This dress has a stunning sweetheart neckline which leaves room to accessorise as you please – although I have to say, I’m a fan of how the dress is been styled here with minimal fuss so that the gown has all the focus. That gorgeous scallop hem train is the stuff dreams are made of.


I love the sweet and summery D17205 ivory wedding dress. The shape of the illusion neckline is very flattering on the shoulders, making this dress an ideal choice if you’re nervous about wearing a strapless style. The bow waistband is such a cute touch that gives the dress a vintage vibe.


I am totally blown away by how amazing the D17213 wedding gown is! This Grecian inspired gown has an alluringly low back which is balanced out with a cowl back and strands of fabric that drape across the exposed skin. Although the dress has an elegant and timeless feel, there’s something refreshingly modern about the back detail – I would never want to take this off!


Tea length wedding dresses are super cute and there’s nothing I don’t love about the E17808 gown from Special Day. Perfect for brides inspired by the 1950s, this charming dress has it all – a beautiful neckline, a fairytale skirt and a figure flattering crossover bodice. The elegant bow waistband adds a touch of sparkle to the design.


If you’re inspired by Kate Middleton’s wedding dress, then you’ll love style E17810! The v-neckline is stunning without being overly exposing. This is complemented with lacy cap sleeves and a breath taking A-line satin skirt. If you’re worried about the skirt swamping you, the waistband will pull you in at the smallest part of your body to give you a beautiful silhouette.


I simply had to include another of Special Day’s tea length dresses in this blog – this style of dress is just so perfect for a summer wedding, especially one with a retro theme. The A-line skirt is given plenty of volume thanks to a tulle underlayer and the hem is ideal for showing off a pair of statement wedding shoes. 


I’ve saved my absolute favourite style until last because it’s the one I still can’t stop staring at. The E17833 dress bears all of Special Day’s signature trademarks with its elegant lace bodice and classic silhouette. The lace at the illusion neckline is so stunning, you won’t need to wear much jewellery. 

So these are my favourites from the new collection, but if you want to find out more then visit the Special Day listing on hitched.
