My experience with Alta Costura Bride is nothing but positive!

My experience with Alta Costura Bride is nothing but positive!
I was incredibly anxious about dress shopping, very self conscious and convinced it would be super stressful. I am so pleased to say that I was so wrong and had no reason to be anxious; my bridal consultant Sarah welcomed me in on my first appointment and was with me for every appointment/fitting that I had, she listened to what I had to say, reassured me, allowed me the time and space needed to process things and offered her support and advice.
All of the other lovely ladies working in the shop were just as wonderful, they were all excited to see me trying on my dress and loved chatting to me about my wedding. The entire vibe and atmosphere was so warm, welcoming and friendly which was so comforting and helped me feel so much less anxious.
I am thrilled to have found my dress at Alta's and to be an ACB Bride!! Thank you Alta, Sarah and the entire team, you really are wonderful.

The perfect experience

I was extremely nervous to find a wedding dress. I was recovering from a surgery, getting used to a new body shape and getting stronger after an injury and truly thought I’d, at best, find something I wouldn’t hate.

Instead the ladies made me so comfortable and happy that I found my dream dress - it had pockets ;)

I laughed my way through my appointment and enjoyed every second.

Each corresponding appointment was a joy and I have recommended them to every other bride I know.

A very special bridal shop

Fantastic service from these guys. Everyone on the team were incredibly friendly and complimentary. Myself and my partner were helped by the lovely Jo who was so helpful and made choosing a dress very special. They even helped with keeping the cost down and very generously helped with storing our dresses and dry cleaning. I'm beyond happy with the service given and the amount of beautiful dresses to choose from. I would always recommend Alta Costura... Every. Single. Time. Thank you so much for everything.

Amazing Experience

Had the best experience finding the dress of my dreams with the help from Molly & the other ladies in the shop. Fantastic atmosphere and very welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. They made me feel so relaxed and special. I felt like a princess when I had my dress on. Everybody at our wedding or who saw the photos loved the dress.

Lovely shop. Well worth a visit!

I visited Alta Costura with my Mum and sister several month ago and found my dream dress. We found the customer service in the shop to be incredible, Jade helped me find and try on my dress and she was so lovely and every interaction I had with the shop since buying my dress has been a lovely experience with the whole team being wonderful. I found the shop to have a wide selection of styles and we did not feel rushed or pressured which was a win. I would highly recommend people visit!!

Wedding dress

As a larger than average bride I was worried about trying on dresses. The team made the whole experience so much more relaxing and enjoyable. They let me take as much time as I needed and really listened to what I wanted.

Perfect Bridal Dress Shop

This was my second Shop I visited when dress shopping. After feeling deflated from my previous shop, ALTA COSTURA made me feel relaxed and helped me to find the perfect dress.
Being a plus size bride I didn't have all the confidence in the world but Jo at Alta Costura made me feel excited again and beautiful. I can not thank the shop enough and would highly recommend them to anyone of all shapes and sizes.

The Best in Kent!

I was so nervous to wedding dress shop as a plus size gal. I needn't have been. Alta Costura and all the staff have gone out of their way to make me feel like a princess. Never felt rushed, they went out of their way to be accommodating when my maid of honour was unable to make my original appt and we were able to go back. Natasha even helped me put my shoes on when I was trying my dress on when it came in from the supplier! Just the loveliest bunch who helped me experience that wonderful glow in my dress.

Made me feel amazing!

Where do I start!? From the second I walked through the door I felt like a valued customer, the ACB Team did everything to make sure I found my dress they helped me with finding all the right accessories and took the time to make sure I was happy, comfortable and answer any questions. They're always so amazing whenever I contact them and no query it too big or difficult. Honestly the best experience!
