“I absolutely loved this place. Got my dream wedding dress from here. From the moment I booked the appointment to purchasing my dress it has been easy and stress free. Lydia was incredible. She went the extra mile. Even down to helping me with my strapless bra. Covid restrictions is not a problem here they have everything thought of. I would 100% recommend anyone to go here. Dresses incredible. Service incredible. Staff amazing. A massive thank you to everyone!”- Charlie
“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. ”- Maflin
“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.”- Jess
