This was my first bridal appointment and Lucy was helping me try on dresses. She was so lovely and welcoming from the start and really listened to what I wanted and took this into account to help me choose other dresses I hadn’t thought of at first. I didn’t feel rushed at all when trying on different dresses and she was happy to help me try on previous dresses that I loved. A very happy experience indeed and certainly one to remember! I could never have dreamt of going anywhere else now. Truly lovely memory.

I’ve had the best experience here! From the moment I stepped into the shop Sarah made me and my family so welcome. I loved every moment of trying dresses on, and I loved the fact that even though I went in with no idea the ladies knew exactly what to put me in when I told her which designs I liked. Daphne was then my seamstress and I could not recommend her highly enough! She is Wonder Woman, she made me feel beautiful, she made me feel confident and comfortable. Daphne was brilliant, listened to me and mum. The final product is absolutely beautiful and she understood exactly what I wanted my dress to be every step of the way. It was so lovely, we felt like nothing was too much. She is such a lovely kind lady who I felt I could trust with my beautiful dress. Thank you Alta Costura For my amazing experience with you!

Beautiful shop, lovely assistant who helped me and guided me choosing my perfect wedding dress, she listened to me and was so helpful. Best experience ever saying yes to my dress here. The little goody bag you receive as well is just the most sweetest gift. So thoughtful and kind. Would definitely recommend anyone to come here for the best wedding dress experience.

I really feel so privileged to have met Isabella and had her work her magic on my wedding dress. She has gone beyond all expectations and has supported me every step of the way throughout the fittings! Anyone who has Isabella as their seamstress you are in the best hands! Isabella is very funny and bubbly & really makes the whole experience enjoyable! I had doubts about my dress because of the delays to our wedding but on my final fittinf Isabella brought it to life and all my worries have disappeared! Also thank you so much to Emma Jane and Lucy who have just been so kind and helpful.

Emma-Jane has been amazing, she sourced and ordered in a sample loan dress, kept me informed on price and when the dress would be in store. Came in to try it on today and she was lovely, made me feel really comfortable and made it so easy to say YES to the dress

As soon as I walked in all the ladies were so friendly and welcoming and I had Molly who assisted me and she was absolutely fab! Made me feel so comfortable when trying the different dresses and was so complimentary and helped me so much with all the different styles! I would one hundred percent recommend visiting here as the selection of dresses are amazing and the staff are fabulous

I had the best bridal experience at Alta Costura, the store is so beautiful and holds the most stun-ning bridal gowns to choose from. I'm so lucky to work with the wonderful seamstress Isabella on making my dress my very own, with adding in some beautiful element's. Thanks again to the wonderful Alta Costura team, wishing you all the sparkly dresses for the future.

I said yes to the dress at Alta Costura in Maidstone this morning. This was my fourth bridal shop and we had such a lovely experience. Sarah was lovely and made me feel so at ease and really listened to all the things I wanted and liked. The shop itself was stunning and there was loads of variety in the dresses. Once we'd paid Sarah took us outside for a "I said yes to the dress" photo and handed me a "thank you" bag with a lush bath bomb and a box of chocolates inside! Such a lovely and personal touch. I would recommend Alta Costura to anybody. Thank you again

Amazing experience so far. Can't thank the staff enough they were extremely helpful, informative and patient with me and my partner. Nothing was too much trouble at all. Got back to my emails efficiently and so helpful. Especially as I am not a girlie girl, they made me feel welcome and at ease. Really can't thank them enough!

Molly and Emma were amazing at both my first and second visit. They immediately made us feel relaxed, comfortable and welcome. Both of them listened to what I wanted and helped me find my dream dress. I was able to try on a many as I needed to find the one, and nothing was too much trouble for the girls. I could spend everyday at Alta Costura, the atmosphere was so relaxed and friendly it felt like I had known both Molly and Emma for years rather than a few minutes. From first contact the staff at Alta Costura have been incredible.

I started off nervous when going to buy my dress but soon felt at ease. The lady was very helpful listening to the details of the dresses I liked and finding ones which would suit me. Due to COVID I could only take 2 people with me but was given time to try on my chosen dresses a second time to FaceTime friends. I am very happy with my final decision and can’t wait until I see the dress with it’s alterations. Thank you for all your help.

Sarah made me feel so special and I had an amazing experience. She knew the dresses well and picked out some dresses, once she had seen what I felt comfortable in, one of which may be the one! I can’t wait to return with my bridesmaids. Felt comfortable, safe and well-looked after.

Amber Manning from Rainham

This was my first bridal appointment, and I was excited, nervous and anxious. I had the help of Emma-Jane who was very good at listening to my thoughts after every dress I tried on. I was very shy about trying on dresses with her help, but in the fitting room she made me feel at ease. It was an easy day, and I came away with my dress after my appointment. I am so excited and relieved I found it here at this shop - I wasn’t looking forward to the numerous appointment I had scheduled, this is a massive weight of my shoulders. My dress is perfect, a second skin, it’s me and I feel comfortable, beautiful and feminine in it. Cannot wait to come back to try it on again with the altercations, and pick out my veil. Thank you so much - Amber :-)
