From buying to alterations, Alta Costura has been fantastic. They helped me pick out sleeves to add on to my dress to make it more inline with my vision. Everyone was so helpful and complimentary.

From the minute I walked in to Alta Costura Bride I was made to feel at ease. I was so nervous being plus size and only having 4 months to find a dress. Natasha has only been there 2 months and it’s like she had been there for years. I picked 5 dresses tried them all on and made the decision to have the 3rd one it’s fitted with a couple of things need altering. But I was able to take the dress away. It was like it was meant to be. Thank you so much.

I had my appointment today and I can’t tell you how happy I am. How relaxed I was made to feel And how surprised I was when I said “Yes to the dress” My heartfelt thanks to the whole team but special thanks to Natasha! I had an idea of what I wanted but was overwhelmed by all the different dresses on display. Natasha kindly and with extreme patience guided me through the selection and helped me choose several to try on. Clipping, pinning, inserting panels and fashioning the trains we finally came to a decision, a dress I wouldn’t have thought of in a million years! Natasha you made the whole experience so much easier and more comfortable than I ever thought it could be and I can’t thank you enough.

Amazing shop! The ladies are all so lovely and I had an amazing experience. The dresses are stunning and was able to try as many as I liked. Lovely atmosphere and loads of space for all of us.

I had my dress fitting yesterday and the seamstress made me feel amazing in my dress. I was so worried about coming to my appointment as I had been very poorly and it stopped me from running and working out. But all that worry went away, and my whole appointment I felt amazing. Also with the help of the lovely Natasha I also brought a new veil to go with my beautiful dress. Looking forward to final dress fitting Xxx

We had an appointment with Molly today, she was amazing! I tried I think 8 dresses , saying what I liked/disliked about them. She listened to everything i said, put it all together then pulled 'THE DRESS'! She was so lovely, polite, attentive and well absolutely amazing! This was my first time trying on a wedding dress she made me feel so at ease and comfortable, thank you so much one very happy bride. I will definitely recommend this amazing bridal shop and Molly to my friends, family and to anyone that reads this!

Me and my Mum came yesterday to look for my wedding dress. It was my first time trying on dresses and Sarah was so lovely and helpful and made me feel so comfortable and relaxed which made it such a great experience. We ended up coming back to shop to start yes to the dress and Holly was just as helpful when we came back. The lovely little touches after getting your dress just makes it all perfect. Thankyou all so much for helping me find my amazing dress.

Lauren was a fantastic help and the studio is beautiful. There were plenty of plus size dresses to chose from and I didn't feel rushed at all. I would highly recommend this bridal studio!

Molly was amazing after a very bad experience and losing heart in trying to find a dress, molly made it fun and reassured me all the way in all styles. Only after an hour I found the perfect dress. With out molly id still be lost and disheartened about the whole experience of trying to find a dress. Having all the staff coming over and applaud on me finding my dress made it so personal and fun.

I had an amazing experience in this store today. Hannah was welcoming and charming. Nothing was too much trouble. She was very patient and accommodating. I tried on lots of dresses and Hannah listened to my comments and fed back to me in a constructive manner. It was only at the end when she gave her opinion of what she thought of the dress I had chosen. My experience was of a shop full of beautiful dresses and Hannah - a perfect adviser.

Alta and her team have been nothing short of incredible its no secret that my dress journey has been more than difficult but without them I wouldn't have been getting married in just 10 days time in the dress i feel in love with what feels like forever ago. So a huge huge thankyou from the bottom of my heart !!

Amazing experience, Joanne was super and thoroughly amazing throughout. Made me feel really comfortable and relaxed! Honestly was so worried to try on dresses, but I had no need to be so worried! Also as an extra special part of trying and buying a dress that hadn’t been named yet, they decided to name the dress Chloe, after me! How wow is that! The friendliest, loveliest bridle shop who really care about their customer experience!!

I was a little anxious about coming to the store to find a dress as I am not usually someone who likes to be the centre of attention and was a little unsure what to expect. Initially the Instagram posts from Alta Costura really helped me as I was able to see dresses on there on real bodies that I liked and also was able to see questions that I felt a little worried about answered. When I got to the store, Sarah made me feel at ease. I felt that she really listened to what I thought about different dresses, was able to suggest things when that is what I needed, but also step back when I needed. Ultimately, the dress she picked out was absolutely perfect and I felt really matched everything I said. Really pleased that I came here to find my dress and even more pleased with the one I have chosen.

Isabella was amazing . She worked really hard to make sure I was happy with every aspect of the fit . I feel really confident it will fit beautifully once she works her magic. She was patient, calm and I never felt rushed or that anything was too much trouble. Thank you all at Alta

Had a great experience at ACB! Amanda was amazing, so bubbly and knowledgeable! She made me reassured as I hadn't tried any wedding dresses on before. Turned out the first dress was the dress!! Loved the vibe at the shop and all the assistants were lovely. Glad I chose to go to Alta Costura Bride for my wedding dress. I've had 2 follow up phone calls and an appointment since saying yes, as they were trying to be as accomodating as possible in regards to the price of the dress and my budget. Highly recommended and appreciate the support from them already!!!! Thank you.

I visited a few shops prior to Alta, with very little help from the staff and I left very disheartened. a friend said to go to Alta and I wont regret it and I really didn't! The staff, from the moment I walked in were so helpful, the ladies name escapes me, but after several dresses of me saying no, she asked me to try a dress that I hadn't even considered on, just to see what I thought - So I did and fell in love with it instantly. It was nothing like I thought I wanted but as soon as she tightened it at the back and it hugged my body in places I really didn't think I liked about myself, I just had to have it! which then leads me to Daphne, who has been nothing but amazing with fitting the dress to literally perfection! I am the least girly-girl around and very critical about myself but the way the dress now fits, I felt amazing & the groom certainly wont recognize me! Thank you to you all involved for making my dream dress a reality!

The service I received when I visited your shop in Maidstone was fantastic. I just dropped in without an appointment and no idea of the sort of dress I was after. The lady who served me took all my idea on board and found about six dresses for me to try. I can away with lots of ideas of what I like and a possible dress in mine. I cannot praise them enough for their service and customer care. Thank you.

I couldn’t have wished for a better experience, from buying my dream dress (despite the Covid restrictions the experience was flawless) to my final alterations appointment. I cannot wait to pick my dress up! Isabella has been fantastic with the alterations and has made some very thoughtful adjustments and touches to the dress.

I really enjoyed my appointment even though i was anxious beforehand and couldn't be happier with my dress that Hannah had chosen for me. Our budget was low and there was no judgement and she made me feel nothing but comfortable with the whole experience. I totally recommend them
