  • I had an amazing experience with Janene's Bridal, from shopping to alterations. It's a lovely shop with a huge selection and a very kind and helpful staff. Everyone who works there really knows their stuff, especially the alterations department. This place does everything: I bought a hair comb and necklace from them when their jewelry specialist was there. Jennifer taught me how to do a first dance spin without tearing my sleeves. They gave me an emergency kit with extra lace in case of rips. They even took a video of how to do the bustle! I couldn't believe the attention to detail they provide. I was not prepared for how much alterations cost in general, but having this team of folks helping me was worth every penny. They were the VIPs of our team of vendors. Highly recommend!

  • I visited a lot of bridal shops before finding my dress, and I now know why Janene's has such a great reputation. They have SO many dresses and styles to choose from and feature the best brands. They also have excellent customer service (shout out to Jennifer who was amazing!!) and are experts in tailoring dresses. I found my dress - Essense of Australia D2109 - 10 months before my March 2019 wedding. I believe I was told they recommend ordering the dress 8 months in advance, which gives the designer time to custom make and ship the dress. When I was measured for the dress, I was a bit nervous because the size they said they'd need to order for me was an 8 (because of the size of my hips), when I'm a street size 2! Apparently, this is very normal and I trusted them as the experts. When my dress arrived (about 6 months after we ordered it), my nerves were put to rest. Although the dress was too large and needed to be altered down, it wasn't comically huge or anything like that. ... Read more

  • First boutique I scheduled my first wedding dress shopping experience. It was recommended by my sister-in-law who lived down the street. I invited my sister, my mom, my sisters-in-law, and mother-in-law to my appointment. I loved that in the beginning of my appointment, everyone browsed through the boutique and chose dresses for me to try on. I believe I tried on over 15 dresses and luckily enough, I found THE dress! I felt that this experience was nice to share with my family. Every fitting was great as well.

  • I can’t say enough good things! Enjoyable experiences, easy appointments, perfect customization. My fitting appointments were some of my best memories from wedding planning AND I felt perfect in my dress! And... removeable sleeves!? Yes!

  • I was married last Saturday in my wedding dress from Janene's. The dress was a Maggie Sotero stunner and I loved it. It was unique and beautiful and perfectly tailored. Janine's was the second place I visited and I was a little disheartened by the first. The staff at Janene's is professional, friendly, warm, and welcoming. Janene's definitely celebrates women and their staff make all women feel gorgeous and special. The fittings gave me confidence and let me "get to know" my dress. I worked with Suton (sp?) and even with Janene herself on occasion. They were fabulous and I loved sharing stories with both of them. They also listened to my questions regarding alterations and gave me suggestions without pressuring me. Huge thanks to Janene's for helping me make memories that will last a lifetime. Love you ladies!

  • This review is way overdue, but I could't let it go without writing one. I came to Janene's Bridal in December of 2016 for my third and final appointment with my mom, two aunts, and my little cousin with me. The woman who was assigned to our group was so good - I believe her name was Tammy. She let us look around and pick out some dresses that I would like to try on, and she even pulled some herself. While in the dressing room she would give me pep talks and kept telling me that my opinion is really the only one that matters and to not get overwhelmed. She made me feel like everything was going to be okay. I tried on a few dresses and none of them were it and everyone agreed. Then Tammy went back and pulled another dress that looked nothing like what I had ever envisioned and convinced me to try it on. I walked out and stood on the podium, looking in the mirror and tears came to my eyes. I had never felt more beautiful or bridal. I later tried on the dress again and could feel the ... Read more

  • I have only good things to say about Janene's! First of all, I love that they are responsive via phone and email. It makes planning and organizing so much easier. I went dress shopping with my best friend about 11 months before the wedding. I knew I wanted long, ivory, and lace with a low back. I tried on a number of dresses at a range of stores - all the way from David's Bridal to fancy boutiques. I really lucked out, because I fell in love with a Stella York dress with crocheted lace that was on the less expensive end of my budget. This worked well, since Janene's was able to customize the dress so that it was exactly what I wanted. The alterations weren't cheap, but they were worth it. They made several changes, including changing the shape of the low back, adding lace to the spaghetti straps, adding buttons down the back, and adding a bustle. Jennifer worked closely with me throughout several appointments, and each time I went in it felt like I was visiting with a friend. She helpe... Read more

  • Ladies, if you need a wedding dress in the bay area, Janenes is the place to go! My consultant Tammy was incredible, and did 3 appointments with me until I found my perfect dress. They have an amazing selection and are just wonderful.

  • Start to finish, Janene's were true professionals. Not only did I find my dress, but I also used their in house alternations and jewelry maker. I LOVE that I was able to customize my earrings and bracelet to be exactly what I wanted. The icing on the cake, though, goes out to their alterations manager, Jen. Give that girl a raise! She was so knowledgeable, and was more than willing to accommodate whatever request I had, no matter how big, how small, or how many times I changed my mind. Also, shout out to their entire alterations department, you are miracle workers! I would proudly, and confidently recommend Janene's to anyone looking for a professional experience, start to end.

  • Ladies, if you are looking for your perfect bridal gown, please do yourself a favor and head to Janene's!! I live in Los Angeles, and my wedding is in my hometown of Sacramento. Why go to a bridal salon all the way in Alameda? First, they have an absolutely amazing selection of bridal gowns. Second, unlike salons where you have your consultant bring you dresses to try, they actually let you walk through the store and pick out your own dresses (which I happened to prefer). Third, all their consultants are super fun and make the experience amazing. Fourth, Janene herself does your alterations in house. Lastly, the prices are super affordable and reasonable!! I spent far less than I thought I would! I would suggest going to a fancy bridal salon first and getting the experience of having a consultant bring you dresses (figure out the style and silhouettes that look best on you). Then come to Janene's and have some real fun! The also have an absolutely amazing jewelry design... Read more

  • I can't say enough great things about the team at Janene's Bridal. From the very beginning the sales team was so easy going, professional and never pushy. It was a blast trying in dresses despite being overweight. They made me feel like I could try any dress I wanted and even had ways to make the dress look like it fit with contraptions. This is something isn't something done in all wedding shops. They made me feel like a true bride and even accommodated my large bridal party. Once I did decide to buy the dress I knew u also wanted it tailored at Janene's. It was a lot pricier than elsewhere but I really didn't want to take the chance with my intricate beadwork on my dress. I would suggest that if your dress is as intricate and delicate as mine you're in good hands with the seamstress at Janene's. Every time I had a fitting I was nervous and they eased my mind. They even had great tips on how to lift certain areas of my body so the dress could fit better and took the time t... Read more

  • Going to Janene's is like a bride's dream come true! Such a cute corner shop stuffed full of beautiful boutique dresses, ahh! You HAVE to make an appointment before coming here because they're pretty booked on a day-to-day basis. I enjoyed trying on different dresses here so much. Having gone to other bridal dress shops though, I gotta say I was expecting their consultants to do more. My consultant had only worked there for a year or so, though (so they might not all be like her). She actually gave me wrong information when I asked (saying dresses were made by other brands) and was pretty hands-off in giving her opinions and putting forth suggestions for dresses and styles. Prices are generally quite pricey, as only to be expected of a boutique dress store here. However, the dresses are gorgeous, they're well-stocked with different styles, and you can sometimes (rarely) even buy dresses off the floor for less than their original price.
