About Us


Our goal at Kudos is to provide a warm and welcoming environment for our customers, where we can help find exactly what you are looking for. Whether you are a bride, bridesmaid, 'mother of', or just a guest, here at Kudos we ensure you will receive the best of our attention and guidance. 

 

Kudos Bridal first opened their doors back in 2007, based in a rather humble store on Bruntsfield Place in Edinburgh. Co-owners Jackie Kelso and Michelle Scott quickly launched to success; resulting in moving premises in 2009 into a bigger boutique on Morningside Road. 

It became clear that the unique atmosphere, impeccable service, and beautiful designer gowns were of great appeal to Scottish brides; with women travelling from all across the country to visit us, it became evident that opening up a second store was their next step.

In 2011 the Dunfermline store opened, and Michelle and Jackie have never looked back. Kudos has a reputation for providing the highest level of customer service to Brides, bridesmaids and wedding guests alike, and continue to uphold that reputation every day. Jackie works in the Dunfermline branch and Michelle still oversees the Edinburgh boutique.
