12 of the best wedding dress shops in Edinburgh 2020
KUDOS BRIDAL EDINBURGH
As soon as you step foot in the door of Kudos Bridal Edinburgh, you’ll be greeted by your very own bridal consultant and taken to a fitting room area.
That’s where your journey from Miss to Mrs begins!
Kudos is different from the rest, says boutique manager Millie Polson, who adds that there’s a style for every bride in both the Edinburgh and Dunfermline shops.
“We have everything from traditional laces, boho and relaxed dresses to floral and colourful gowns.
We’re able to create that unique experience where a bride can buy everything under one roof – we have the complete bridal package.”
Kudos also offers in-house alterations with their talented seamstress, and you can store your gown at the boutique until it’s ready to collect in time for the big day!
Appointments are free of charge unless you’d like to indulge in the VIP experience, where you’ll have the shop to yourself after hours with bubbly and cupcakes.
Kudos Bridal also has a boutique in Dunfermline, around 30-minutes’ drive from Edinburgh city centre.

After a recent move to a bigger, better location on Dundas Street, they were able to combine both the couture bridal shop and their standalone accessories boutique, Rachel Scott Accessories, under one roof.
The Finishing Touches Room has over 100 veils as well as Rachel’s own range of jewellery and hair accessories to finish your bridal look.
They have also created a totally modern and contemporary consultation lounge where clients can enjoy complete privacy and undivided attention during their appointment.
