There was plenty of choice available Vikki - the lady helping me was very friendly, helpful, professional and was quite happy for me to come back another day with other people. Nothing was too much trouble I would definitely recommend Alta Costura to anyone looking to find the perfect gown

Vicky was extremely helpful & nothing felt was too much to ask. She listened to our requests & suggested several ideas of her own which was brilliant. Made my day thoroughly enjoyable & would happily recommend her to friends & family

I always feel incredibly special coming into the store. The staff recognise me and know my name - they personalise your experience and you feel part of the team! I am ever so happy that I chose Alta and her team to work hard with their seamstresses to make such a HUGE part of your wedding dream come true. Thank you wonderful people!

It was my first time trying wedding dresses on and it was everything I dreamed of and more the shop was beautiful, staff were so friendly and made me and my friends and family feel so comfortable, the woman who helped us was incredible and so helpful and it goes without saying that the dresses they had were beautiful and so different from anything I've seen on other shops websites.

I would highly recommend! I had the most fabulous day, the ladies are lovely and very helpful. Joanne was amazing! The original dress I liked just did not suit me, but I traveled 4 hours to try it on! Joanne was so calming and helpful. She showed me all the others dresses and let me try on whatever I wanted. I ended up choosing one of the rail which just suited me perfectly! The dress collection is gorgeous along with the changing rooms and shop. One happy bride to be, who wants to do it all again! Thank you ladies!

The friendliest nicest staff, make you feel like you’ve known them forever! Particularly Hannah who helped me find my dress. Stunning dresses everywhere you look, and made to feel special the moment you step in store.

Had a lovely appointment yesterday with Jo, even though I have over a year to my wedding I wanted to get a feel for my style of dress ( being a ‘curvy’ bride). She immediately made me feel at ease and invited to me to go through the large selection of dresses in my size range, pulling out the ones I wanted to try. Have narrowed it down to two ( very different ones) I am going back next month with my bridesmaids to show them and hopefully buy my dress! I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Jo and Alta especially if you are on the curvy side.

The warmest welcome with staff who listen and allow you time to consider all the details you might want, or don't want. I felt extremely comfortable throughout the session and enjoyed the time spent at Alta Costura despite normally hating shopping!

Visited the store last Saturday and was very anxiois being a larger girl but was made to feel very comfortable trying on dresses. It didn't feel like we were rushed and had plenty of time to look around and try on different styles. Vicki was very helpful and I didn't feel pressured to male any decision. It was my first serious shop for dresses and although I didn't decide that day I would defo recommend visiting the shop. Also the touch of offering complimentary tea/prosecco was a really nice touch and made the experience really lovely. Thank you x

Alta was my first place to try and I was not disappointed. Sarah was super lovely and made me feel very comfortable! Can’t wait to go back and look at more dresses!

I had THE most amazing experience yesterday! Vickie was incredibly patient and kind and definitely knew what she was doing. I cannot wait to come back and try on the dresses again with my bridesmaids and make my final decision.

Can't thank the staff here enough. I had no idea what dress I wanted but with the help of staff I found the perfect dress for me by the 3rd one I tried on. Not one for looking at myself in the mirror, staff made feel relaxed & more comfortable. Daphne the seamstress was lovely & made my dress look even better! Thankyou everybody Xx

Sarah was amazing took the time to find out what I was looking for and then, when it turned out that wasn't what suited me, came out with some amazing dresses that I wouldn't have picked off the rack which looked absolutely amazing.

I firstly want to say massive thank you Ashleigh who was my consultant today as I tried on dresses for the first time. She was very welcoming, friendly and professional making my whole experience at Alta Costura Bride one I shall never forget. I went along today with two of my bridesmaids who also said how welcome and apart of the whole process they felt. I didn’t feel rushed at all. Ashleigh really listened intently to what it was that I was looking for and at times could tell my reaction to a dress before I had even made comment. She gave me some great advice and suggestions when searching for the right dress. The whole experience was calm, relaxed and filled with laughter. It was as though I had another friend there with me. Ashleigh really was amazing and made me feel at ease. The shop itself was set out beautifully with a calm and welcoming atmosphere. I cannot wait to return to the store to go back to the dress that I truly now think is THE one. Thank you Alta Costura in Maidstone and thank you Ashleigh!

Lovely helpful Lady called Jo. She was limited in what she could show me for the time restraint for my wedding in 2 months and sizes available. They seem to have an awful lot of size 10 dresses but not many size 14's. The dress that I considered was not what I thought I would wear on my big day, but it had potential to be dyed after the big day so that I could make more use of it but it did not give me the "feeling" that I was looking for. Sadly I did not buy the dress from Alta Costura, but the boutique was very nice and the experience was lovely.

Vicki was so helpful & lovely!! She let me try on so many different styles & nothing was too much to ask. Literally have got it down to 1 type of dress material and 2 lots of style. I’ll definitely be back to try the 2 on again and hopefully pick 1! Lovely service from all of the ladies working there.

Couldn’t have been happier! Being a curvier a bride I was so worried that nothing was going to fit and that I’d be limited in what I could try on but that was not the case at all. Amanda was absolutely incredible, honest, friendly and attentive. I cannot wait to bring my bridesmaids in for a re-try!
