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.

Didn’t think I’d find the one..but I did!

I went to the fitting feeling really pessimistic, didn’t think I’d like any dresses. And ended up finding THE one is a trunk sale. The team are so kind and helpful!

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.

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.

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.

August 2023 bride

Sarah was my initial consultant who was absolutely amazing in helping me find a dress which I loved and considering the types of alterations which I could possibly have. Sarah went above and beyond, in compromising regarding deposit amount as we found the dress a week before payday and allowed us to pay remaining deposit once paid! Sarah was not pushy or showing signs of frustration, which really helped to smooth the process and allowed me to relax. I cannot thank Sarah enough and I cannot wait until my dress is in store 2023!
