About Something Special Boutique

Something Special opened its doors in 1990 by myself (Margaret). I now have my 2 lovely daughters working alongside me – Paula & Vikki. All those years ago I wanted a special and memorable place and I have carried this through to today.

Back then I made most of my wedding and bridesmaid gowns by hand but over the years this has now been over taken with our amazing designers.

We love our jobs and we have a down to earth, honest but practical outlook to guide and help you in making such an important choice! We are highly skilled and have a passion to help you find your perfect gown!

All our alterations are done in house by me, which makes this easier for you and keeps the cost down. We have built an amazing customer base where we have seen generations of family members. You become part of our family from the moment you walk in. It’s such a special time in your life we make you our priority!

I have built up our range of designers over the years with some being with me since the beginning! Working very closely with them we ensure that we have the best gowns that are amazing and that little bit more different giving you the choice of classic and modern styles.

We specialize in Wedding, Bridesmaids, Flower girls, Prom & Evening wear.
Having many offers on during the year including Sample SALES and Designer trunk show weekends! Please check our Facebook & Instagram pages and sign up to our newsletter to keep up to date with all events and offers.

Our boutique is in the main town center of Horwich. On the crossroads of Winter Hey Lane and Chorley New Road – Parking is available for free at St. John Street car park behind the Barclays Bank. We are just 10 mins from the junction 6 of the M61.

We look forward to meeting you.

Margaret and the team


Happy Brides…

  • Ok so on the 18th June it was my wedding day! And I was a dressless bride of the morning of my wedding, due to a very unreliable "seamstress". I came to your shop in floods of tears... you were absolutely amazing!! Helped me choose dresses.. try them on.. found "the one" which was too big for me. Wasn't a problem at all! Was altered in no time at all! And walked out your stunning shop an hour later in my beautiful wedding dress! I cannot thank you for all you did for me that day! I will be forever greatful for saving my wedding day  thank you so much  xxxxxx
