After 2 years away, Balcony Brides returns to Accrington Market to stall W6 on the balcony. We are delighted to welcome Ann back as she brings her sewing process to the centre of town.

Ann has been in business for over 30 years and has worked with generations of families. Following 2 years in Oswaldtwistle, she has now brought her expertise back to Accrington Market.

Bridal Sewing

The main focus of Balcony Brides is sewing and alterations with a speciality in bridal sewing.

Ann sells wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses which she lovingly alters to achieve the perfect fit. Ann can also modify the whole bridal party’s outfits to create a picture perfect entourage for the happy couple. This includes trousers, suits, dresses and skirts.

If you are looking for something completely unique to compliment your outfit, Ann also handmakes veils and accessories. These can be offered in a variety of fabrics and colours so are the perfect addition for your big day.

Everyday Alterations

If you have a pair of trousers that need shortening or a skirt that needs adjusting, look no further. As Balcony Brides returns to Accrington Market you now have access to an experienced seamstress. Ann makes lightwork of everyday alterations.

Simply bring your item and try it on in the enclosed fitting rooms. Ann will pin and agree the alterations and let you know when it is ready to collect.
