I would like to say a massive thank you to Sarah who made picking my dress as easy as possible today. I was a bit nervous before my visit as I was not sure what style I wanted. Sarah was so calming and helpful all the way through making me and mum very relaxed and giving expert advice in a very natural friendly way. I ended up saying “yes to the dress” The whole experience was great with a lovely store and COVID safe. 100% recommend Thank you again!!

I have just got home after having an amazing experience Alta Costura Brides. Met by Lauren at the door and felt very safe within the covid regulations. Turns out Lauren was going to be my consultant. She was so personable and friendly and asked questions to get an idea of my wedding, reception venue, likes and dislikes. She pulled all the right style of dresses and obviously knew her stock and what would work on my body shape. I left having said yes to my dress with a massive smile on face. I can’t wait to see my grooms face on our wedding day when he sees me for the first time in the dress

Everyone at Alta Costura have been so friendly and helpful. I adore my wedding dress and can't thank Olivia and Ines enough for all their help in selecting the dress and then with alterations. So pleased I picked Alta Costura Bridal for my dress!

The best experience!!!! After a failed attempt yesterday and pulling on dresses far far to small and having to picture what it would be like it was such a pleasure to be able to have a whole section not just a few dresses to try on in my size! Olivia was so friendly helpful and made me feel at ease within seconds. Thank you.

As an older bride I couldn’t have asked for a more understanding lady than Jo. She not only knew her product but aware of my uncertainty was able to reassure me, boost my confidence and make it a wonderful afternoon for my daughter, aunt and I. I cannot thank you enough.

I had my first bridal experience today and I couldn’t of been happier. I had Emma with me she was very friendly and full of knowledge of the beautiful dresses. After lots of trying on I can back to one of the first dresses and said YES TO THE DRESS !! Beautiful shop, plenty of choice to suit all. Thank you for a lovely day & experience. X

I was so nervous about trying on dresses - I’m not very girly, can’t remember the last time I wore any dress, and am quite shy. But the lovely ladies put me at ease straight away, and knew what I wanted even before I did! They were so helpful, encouraging and have a real eye for detail for finding you just what you are after. Came out on a real high, and felt great about myself! Thanks so much ladies, your all wonderful!!

Due to the covid pandemic, we only had 12 days to make the alterations to my dress before the wedding. The staff at Alta Costura made sure all the dress fitters were there and ready to go as soon as the shop re-opened. Everyone was so organised and professional, and I took my dress home after 8 days. They took the stress of the situation away and the experience was amazing. Thank you very much to you all!

I was so nervous but the whole experience was so relaxed and my nerves went straight away. The lady who served me was the assistant manager who is one of the nicest ladies I’ve ever met, we discussed budget and if I had any idea what I wanted. She was so helpful and I ended up saying “yes to the dress” 100% would recommend.

THANK YOU SO MUCH to the lovely ladies at Alta Costura Bride. With the Lockdown situation, I was so worried about finding a dress. I picked up 6 dresses to start with and they threw in another they thought I might like. The bag of goodies ( tiaras, belts, veils ect.) made my try on at home experience just that little bit more special. The girls were on hand to help with my questions and when collecting some other styles to try once I had secured the shape I wanted - found my beautiful dress! The girls couldn't do enough to support me! Highly recommended! Thank you!

My experience in store and home delivery has been fantastic. I was really worrying about ordering my dress but everyone made the whole experience so easy and stress free. I couldn’t thank them enough for all their knowledge and help. I can’t wait for my dress to arrive now!

From day one Alta Costura have been fabulous. The first experience of finding the dress went so smoothly. We didn’t feel rushed, we got invaluable advice about dresses and what shape would suit too. I left feeling like I had a very personalised experience! Today I had my dress fitting and the dress was even more amazing than I remembered. Alta Costura also worked hard to ensure the dress would be ready when we decided to move our wedding forward. I really couldn’t ask to have bought my dress from a more wonderful business ??

Everyone was lovely and helpful from start to finish. The advice from Daphne on how to treat the dress whilst getting ready will be really helpful. I tried on lots of dresses but ended up with the first one! Highly recommend anyone going here to find the perfect dress.

I had the best time ever choosing my wedding dress. The staff were so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. I really trusted their opinions and they had answers to all my questions. Would definitely recommend to all and have already recommended to one friend. There was such a large selection of dresses and each one was beautiful. Every dress that I tried on I would have happily worn on my wedding day. The prices are very reasonable too. I ended up spending half what I had budgeted for and got everything I wanted. 10/10. Thanks so much for a great experience.

Had a lovely session today trying on wedding dresses with the amazing Hannah. She was so lovely and friendly and knew exactly what sort of dress I wanted and was very helpful. Considering the current situation with COVID-19 the store has handled the situation very well with all the rules and hygiene.
Trish from Maidstone

Very friendly and patient staff. Allowed me to pick and try on as many dresses as I liked without being pushy to buy. I was stuck between 2 dresses I liked and the lady was soo nice and helpful, she kept changing me in and out of these two dresses multiple times, tried different veils, bras and shoes until I found the dress I liked. I did not feel rushed or pushed into making a decision there and then which made the experience very pleasant and enjoyable. Would recommend.

Litrally can not give you guys enough praise. I was made to feel a million dollars and that it was not a burden to find my perfect dress. I was allowed to tey anything I wanted until the one. Vicky was amazing she called which designer she thought I would pick having only meet me for 5 minutes and guess what she was right. Her guidance was amazing and so helpful. I walked away having bought my dream dress which I never thought was possible. The gift at the end was the icing on the cake after a perfect day. Thank you Vicky

Sarah is absolutely amazing and I loved the shop. I was really worried about finding things I like as I can be quite particular and usually struggle with clothes but Sarah knew what would look good and really built up my confidence. She was patient and didn’t make me feel pressured at all. Ended up going back the next day to get my dream dress which she picked! wasn’t even on my radar at first and now I couldn’t imagine anything better. I’m so greatful x

Absolutely brilliant appointment today at Alta Costura! Felt safe as soon as we entered, lots of space, sanitisers, etc. Olivia was amazing, so helpful and lovely, she made me feel comfortable straight from the offset! My mum & sister were with me and we all came out saying how relaxed we felt and even in these hard times it was an enjoyable afternoon where we did not feel rushed and so many beautiful dresses!

Amazing choice of dresses , styles & sizes . My daughter is a larger lady & had been left very deflated after lack of choice at other shops . Well not at Alta Costura . She could of tried on at least 10 but the 2nd dress she tried ‘ Was the One ‘ . ??. My daughter has several health challenges but the lady made her feel totally at ease & couldn’t of been more lovely , professional , knowledgeable & understanding. The whole experience was a lovely memory made & I would totally recommend ‘ Alta Costura ‘ to any bride to be . I am hoping to renew my vowels & have already picked out a beautiful dress for myself that I spotted during the visit . Also , the dresses are very reasonably priced & you can feel of great quality . My daughter left the shop so happy & cant wait till her next fitting . Also , Covid guidelines were all adhered too & didn’t really affect our enjoyment of the experience . Thank you again ladies & shop owner .
