Another amazing trip Alta Costura to find my bridesmaids dresses! Lauren is so wonderful and we can’t thank her and all the team enough for all their help and kindness. Can’t wait to come back in a few weeks to try my wedding dress on! Thank you!

Rosemary Holmes from Maidstone
The service i received was excellent, Amanda was welcoming, we had coffee and biscuits , the only shop that offered us this. I tried several dresses on, one of the dresses was lovely, but I eventually found my dress in another shop. I would highly recommend the service I received at alta costura.

I had a fantastic experience at Alta Costura with Vicky both before I came and on the day. The shop was lovely and the service was great. I chose a beautiful dress and can't wait for it to arrive - it's perfect for what I need. I would highly recommend them
Nicola James from Sittingbourne
I didn't know what I was looking for when I visited and being 4'11 and only having 11 weeks until our wedding I thought I would struggle. But I was wrong. The ladies here made my appointment so at ease I tried on lots of dresses until I put the "one" on. Cant thank Sarah enough for helping me smile and get excited.
Karen Duhy from Snodland

Once i got home i couldn't get the other dress off my mind and i contacted your store and spoke to another lovely lady called Sarah who very kindly let me change the dress.... i know have my perfect dress for my September wedding... thank you all so much and i would highly recommend.
Emma from Kings Hill
Thank you so much to Sarah! She made me and my family feel so comfortable and relaxed from the moment we arrived. I was not expecting to buy my dress the day of my consultation but I was not made to feel unwelcome at any point. Sarah listened to my concerns and we ended up with two dresses I fell in love with. Thank you so much Alta! xx

Joanna was an absolute delight! i came on my own randomly to try some dresses on, she was so good at giving her opinion when it was needed and giving me advice, she was kind, friendly but professional! made me feel completely at ease, i couldnt believe she hadnt been there very long, she is an absolute credit to your store, even though we were both so hot she had a huge smile on her face the whole time! she wasnt pushy, she was honest, i had a lovely experience because of her.
Rebecca morris from Hastings
Emma jade was so lovely. She gave me brilliant advice, listened to what I wanted and helped me find my perfect dress. I felt so at ease with her and really enjoyed my time because it felt so easy and like there was no pressure on me. I was given her undivided attention for my session, which was wonderful, and the area for family to set is great as it feels like your own little space. All of the ladies there on the day were wonderful and happy, which made our visit delightful. So happy to have found my dress with alta!

Connie Rae from Maidstone
I am SO happy that I chose Alta Costura for my wedding dress! Everyone has been so lovely, and the customer service has been amazing! After having a little hiccup and needing to get a second dress, the staff were wonderful and amazing at putting my mind at ease. I’ve received honest advice which has been brilliant. The friendliness and warmth of the staff have made this whole process feel so much more than just a wedding dress shopping experience. The wedding dress was the bit I was dreading but staff at Alta Costura have completed changed that and it has become one of my favourite parts of planning my wedding! Thank you so much!
Abbie from Minster On Sea
Could not fault this lovely shop for their service when I went to visit. Arrived at 9am and all of my wedding party were offered a hot drink and seats were ready. Nothing was to much trouble.
Rebecca King from Maidstone
I was a bit anxious about shopping for my dress and this was my first time in a wedding dress shop even though my wedding is in 7 months. As soon as we arrived Jo made us all feel so welcome, she listened to what style I wanted and nothing was too much trouble to her, she was so helpful finding me a dress that she thought i'd like. She made me feel comfortable and at ease and I was able to say yes to my dress on my first trip! So glad I booked my app here! Thank you so much Jo you made my dress experience so much better :) xxx
Jo Holloway from Ashford
Very welcoming. Hannah looked after me and she was lovely. Beautiful dresses.
Emma H from Maidstone
Thank you so much for all your help choosing my dress! Based on my questionnaire, my consultant knew exactly what to show me and found me my perfect dress. I felt free to try on lots of different styles,which confirmed my choice. The whole process (ordering, timings and fittings) was explained clearly; all the staff were lovely and made me feel really comfortable. I'm really looking forward to seeing my dress when it arrives. Thank you so much!
Zoë Ansell from Bexley
What can I say! This place is amazing! Being a curvy bride I was nervous at what to expect but saw them on Facebook and thought I’d give it a go. Victoria was amazing at both my first appointment and my second. She made me feel at ease and reassured me all the way right through to me purchasing a dress on my second appointment. Looking forward to trying on my actual dress when it arrives! Thank you so much for making me feel at ease, beautiful and not pressured one bit.
Jessica Summers from Maidstone
So helpful, professional and friendly. The shop itself is beautiful and there is a brilliant range of dresses in different shapes and styles! Highly recommend!
Jessica from Maidstone
Had such a wonderful experience in the shop! Olivia was so wonderful and so patient. She really listened to what I wanted and helped me find some beautiful dresses. There was no pressure to buy or buy expensive and she showed me a great range of dresses in a range of sizes and styles. Thank you for your help! Xxx
Stephanie Orlowski from Maidstone
Lucy was so fantastic, welcoming and friendly. She made me and my guests feel so comfortable and excited about the dresses. We never felt any pressure on time or the number of dresses we could try on. Thank you so much!
Joanne Evans from Maidstone
Thank you so much !, visited on the 19th October 2020 and all the assistants were just lovely and helpful. Olivia helped my mum and I choose the perfect wedding dress. The whole experience was perfect, the shop was nice and relaxing, it didn't feel intimidating and they also welcome walk ins as well. Olivia was not pushy at all and she let my mum and I take our time and nothing was too much trouble for her. Would highly recommend for any future brides ????

Everyone and Alta Costura is lovely. Sarah really listened to me, they were really understanding and didn’t put any sales pressure on us. I ended up finding a dress that I love. Really couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

I had to choose my wedding dress alone so it was hard for me to decide. You were my best company at this amazing moment and I really thank you for your help! I believe that Alta Costura Bride has the best team to work together for your wedding, always smiley staff , a modern, lovely place to find your perfect dress. Thank you for everything xx

I had a lovely time trying on wedding dresses yesterday with my mum and two maid of honours. The dresses are truly beautiful and Hannah was beyond amazing. I loved two dresses and am still working out which one is the one. Thanks again

Amazing service ....Vicky was so lovely not pushy at all. Allowed me to try on every dress I wanted and spent ages pinning the dresses so that they fitted appropriately. Totally listed to everything I said ...a credit to the shop.

Tracey from Kent
God where do I start. I was so worried about this day as I hate trying on clothes, but as soon as I walked into the shop I was made to feel at ease. Joanna was out standing and for me right on my level. She just got me . The whole thing was amazing. Teas and coffees for my guest who come with, glasses of Prosecco When I said yes to the dress and a lovely Touch Was the gift and photo at the end. What’s even better the Beautiful dresses in that shop are affordable prices. Highly recommend the shop . I’m still buzzing as in write this in bed from the experience and finding my lovely wedding dress.
Hayley from Maidstone
Wonderful. Great experience shopping here. Booked an appointment and it was relaxed and informative and the dresses were lovely. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
Lara from Maidstone
I came to Alta Costura today with the mindset that I wouldn’t find anything I liked within my price range; I am notoriously picky and wanted something a little different for a reasonable price. I was served by Ashleigh who listened to me and completely got my style and what sort of thing I was looking for. Against both mine, my mother and my maid of honour’s expectations, I have finished the day having found my dream dress. Thank you so much Ashleigh for your patience, understanding and kindness - it was such a lovely experience for me and my party because of you.
Georgia-Lee Finch from Maidstone
The shop is so beautiful and has such a wide range of choice. I was lost blown away with the large amount of dresses they had specifically for curvy brides, so I didn’t feel out of place at all. The fitting room is spacious and you feel like you have your own little section. The woman who helped me was so lovely and she really made me feel at ease, and even though I chose a lot of dresses for myself, the one she chose I felt in love with! I will definitely be going back there closer to my wedding date to buy my dress, I’ve found a shop I love!!
Samantha green from Maidstone
What an amazing experience, as a slightly older plus size bride, I was worried that the dresses available to try on would not be to my taste/size. I’m sure most plus size women know that feeling of trying to squeeze into a smaller dress to try and imagine what it would look like if it fit your curves. I was very pleasantly surprised the range of plus sized dresses that were available on the day. Our host was lovely and friendly and could not do enough to make myself and my large bridal party feel welcome and special. I entered the shop thinking that I may find a dress that would give me some food for thought, but expected to shop around to find “the one”- I am delighted and shocked (as I’m notoriously hard to please) to say that I said “yes” to my dream Dress today- and can’t wait for it to arrive in store in a few months time. Thankyou Alta brides.
Charlotte from Maidstone
All i can say is fantastic help and such friendly people you all are. Customer service at its finest!!! Cant wait to put the deposit down for my stunning wedding dress.
Amanda Highmoor from Maidstone
Lovely service and friendly staff. Full range of plus size dresses to choose from. I was not rushed and was allowed to take all the time I wanted and was able to bring three people with me. The range of payment options was not made clear to me. Hopefully, I shall be returning.
Chloe Cole from Sittingbourne
