I really can not rate these ladies enough, should be 10 stars ??!!! Amazing bridal store, the ladies know their stuff. I am not one for dresses and being a curvy person I was very anxious about trying on wedding dresses. My anxiety was put to ease and they went above and beyond to make me feel special. Can’t wait to go back and say yes to the dress.

I had a wonderful time trying on the different beautiful dresses. It was my first ever dress fitting and I was so nervous as I’m a plus sized bride. Hannah made me feel so much better and made me feel like a princess! I cannot recommend Alta Costura enough for a nervous bride to be. I have another fitting to go to, but I have a strong feeling I’ll be going back to say yes to the dress!

It was my first time dress shopping at Alta Costura and I was very nervous. I was put at ease by the staff within the first 10 minutes or being there. The staff have alot of time for you and really listen to what you want and also provide recommendations on dresses. Thank you very much to the team for making my first dress shop experience so amazing!

I had the absolute best time with Jo! She was so welcoming and kind to me, my mum, my dad and my sister and didn’t mind me not being 100% sure about what I wanted. She completely took everything I said on board and even let me run over my allocated time, not that she mentioned time at all. I could not recommend her highly enough, she gave her honest opinion and it was like having another friend with me on the appointment. Jo absolutely made my day

Alta Costura have made shopping for and buying a wedding dress both fun and painless. Everyone has been extremely helpful, knowledgable and friendly throughout. The seamstress Isabella was lovely and her work on my dress is faultless. I am so happy with the service received, I would recommend all involved in a heartbeat. I can’t thank everyone enough.

Today I went for my appointment with Sarah and wasn’t expecting to find THE dress, but I did!! Sarah was so knowledgeable and made me feel absolutely at ease. She was so patient with me! All the ladies in the shop are so welcoming and chatty. For someone who hates shopping, I had a lovely time. Thank you.

The staff made me feel very welcome when we entered the shop. They were very very helpful. As a older bride I thought it was going to be difficult to choose a dress the shop had just what I wanted. I love the little jester they have like a free gift and the little hearts to put on the tree.

From start to finish, Molly made me feel so comfortable and welcome! Although I was certain I was only trying on, not buying, when I went in, she helped me find a beautiful dress that we just couldn't say no to!

Alta and her team were welcoming and very helpful. Sarah was my consultant for the appointment and made me feel at ease throughout. She listened carefully to the style I liked and what I had previously tried on. Alta and Sarah took the pictures I had taken with me to find the dresses they had and found alternatives for those they didn’t. Sarah and I then walked the round to see if there were any others I wanted to try. My appointment was the day of the Morilee trunk show (1st August) so I even got to try on dresses the store doesn’t normally have in. Needless to say I found my dress with Sarah’s help. I returned to the store (4th September) to find a bridesmaid dress as one of Sarah’s brides she was on hand to help. We looked through the selection of dresses and selected a few to try. Sarah quickly identified which style was the most flattering and suggested alternatives in similar styles. Thank you Sarah and Alta.

Isabella is amazing! She is so kind!! She has been very helpful with her input on were my dress did and didn't need changing. Making sure I could move properly in it as well. She is a credit to Alta Costura Bride. Everyone I have dealt with at Alta Costura Bride have been brilliant.

I had my first and only dress shopping trip with Alta Costura Bride, I found the one! All the ladies are lovely, but Lucy helped myself and my lovely bridesmaids find our dream dresses. The appointment was relaxed, stress free and super enjoyable. Want to re-live it again! Can't wait to come back for dress fittings! Thank you everyone at ACB!

Absolutely amazing. The staff are all so lovely. I was looking for a style dress I was adamant I wanted, but the staff said let’s try some different styles just to see. And I went for a dress I never would of thought I would want and fell in love! Thank you all so much

Thank you so much for your time today. Amanda picked me a dress I never imagined I would like let alone choose for my wedding. I will be rebooking an appointment to order my dress very soon. Thank you again.

Fantastic experience! I popped in last minute as another appointment that day was cancelled somewhere else and I was determined to try on dresses that day. The staff were all so lovely and helpful. I was assisted by the manager who was really friendly, patient and great at helping me choose styles that suited me and my big day. They have some amazing dresses and it was so hard to choose as I loved them all! I would definitely recommend this place for anyone looking for their wedding dress.

I was quite nervous about finding a wedding dress but the second I arrived I felt so comfortable and at ease. All the staff were so friendly and welcoming and Sarah was absolutely incredible, I did not feel rushed or like I was just another customer it felt so personal and I really felt they took the time to get to know me. Their knowledge is amazing and Sarah picked out some beautiful dresses that I probably wouldn’t have tried at first but I absolutely fell in love with a dress and the experience was so much easier that I thought it would be. From the start of the process to actually buying my dress the team at Alta Costura made it completely stress free they could not have done more. I cannot thank them enough for helping me find the perfect dress.

Sarah was amazing!! I had one very bad experience previously and it has taken me a few years to try to find a dress again, as the previous experience made me feel like I wasn't good enough to wear a beautiful dress! Sarah was very patient, took her time and helped me with honest opinions when asked! She didn't just try to put me in the most expensive dresses and when I found 2 dresses I liked, she helped me to realise which dress was more special for my big day! She added accessories, which then made me have that feeling of knowing which dress I really wanted! Thank you so much for the best experience and I will be back very soon to put in the order of my chosen dress!

I had the most amazing experience on Saturday with Molly. I said yes to the dress to something completely opposite to what I thought would suit me but Molly really knew her stuff and knew what would suit me and was brilliant at making the dress exactly how I wanted it. I couldn’t have asked for a better dress shopping experience and would recommend Alta Costura to everyone.

Molly served me today, and she was absolutely brilliant! I loved that she took the time to get to know me and my wedding before trying on any of the dresses - made it more of a personal experience! I also liked that she encouraged me to try on different styled dresses to get a better idea of what I really wanted! She was amazing and helped me purchase my wedding dress today, which I am in love with!!
