  • I ordered my dress from Janene's and just starting my alterations. The whole experience from trying on dresses to putting my own dress on for the first time was truly a memorable experience. They had a ton of dresses to choose from and the staff is great. I visited three other bridal salons before Janene's and I know I made the right choice to purchase my dream wedding gown from this salon.

  • Dress shopping for me was not like it is on the television reality shows. To be quite honest, it was actually quite tedious and torturous. I had just about given up until I found Janene’s Bridal Boutique. Everything about this place was amazing. This first big difference is that they let you look through the racks and pick out what you want to try on. All the other places would just have the consultant go in the back and try to find dresses close to what you were describing. Janene’s actually lets you explore and shop! I had a limited budget, which I told my consultant about. Unlike other places that were constantly trying to make me spend more than I could afford, Janene’s consultant tried to keep me in my budget. Once we pulled a bunch of dresses I wanted to try on, she looked through them and took out the ones she couldn’t get down to my price point. Other places would let you try them on, hoping you would fall in love and then let you know that they were $1,000 over wha... Read more

  • Janene's is amazing. Not only do they the best selection of gowns I have seen in a boutique but the girls that work there really know their stuff. Jennifer was my dress consultant and she was so attentive, she really listened to what I wanted in a dress and she paid close attention to what I was liking and not liking about the dresses I tried on. She was so good I ended up picking the dress she pulled for me! Jennifer found my dream dress based on her knowledge of the dresses in the store and what I was telling her about my current selections. I fall in love with my dress every time I look at it. Janene herself did my alterations and they were absolutely perfect, she takes her time with each dress to ensure not one dress leaves the store less than amazing. I ensure you will make the right choice going to this boutique.

  • The team at Janene's Bridal was wonderful to work with. My dress came in well under-budget since they had a wide selection of dresses for all budgets and styles. The adjustments were professionally done (including changing the neckline from straight to sweetheart on a dress that had a lot of embroidery and beading) and I felt beautiful on my wedding day. I would highly recommend their services. I live in San Francisco, but was happy to make the trek out to Alameda to work with their delightful team.

  • Hands down one of the best levels of customer service I have ever received. I fell in love with a dress but couldn't find it in Southern California. I finally emailed the designer who gave me a list of vendors. Janene's was one of them. I emailed them and got a quick response letting me know they had a sample for me to try on. Woohoo! I let them know I would be flying up from Southern California and they were very accommodating about scheduling my appointment. I'd been communicating with Stephani via email and when I got to the store, she was as awesome as she had been via email. She was extremely helpful and patient as I tried on several dresses (they have a good selection and I liked quite a few of their gowns) and then several veils. In the end, I got the dress I originally wanted with the perfect veil to match. When the dress arrived, Stephani immediately contacted me to let me know that and to confirm how I'd like to get the dress. Since I wanted it shipped to me, she k... Read more

  • I stumbled upon Janene's Bridal while searching last-minute for a veil. I originally didn't want to wear one, but 2 weeks before the wedding, had a change of heart. I hate shopping and wanted to make it a quick trip. To my surprise and delight, Janene's was my only stop. I went in, noticed a HUGE rack of veils on the wall, tried on three different ones, found the perfect veil for me, paid and left. The saleswoman was kind and helpful without being pushy. I appreciated that she directed my friend and I to the veils and then let us try on, discuss, etc. in privacy. Great shop with beautiful dresses too!

  • I went into Janene's with a few specific dresses I wanted to see and discovered they just weren't for me. They took their time to get to know what I liked and what I didn't and in the end pulled the dress of my dreams! I never felt pressured to buy and the private setting was nice as it was an emotional experience for both my mother and I. I enjoyed coming in for my fittings and they had great advice about what kind of shoes and undergarments to get. They also worked with me so that one of my fittings lined up with a test run on my hair so I was able to get a preview of how the whole look would come together. After watching my fair share of Say Yes to the Dress I was a bit scared about how much a gown would cost me but in the end I was very happily surprised. It was a personal plus that they are only a few blocks from my house but for anyone out of town I suggest making a day of it because Alameda is such a great place to explore with Park Street full of shops and restaurants jus...

  • I live in San Diego county and Janene's Bridal Boutique is located in Alameda, CA located in Northern California. I met her because her boutique carried a dress I had to try on and I ended up buying. Janene is a seamstress and designer and she really knows what dress cut will look best for the shape of your body. She works really hard to make your alterations look perfect. My dress looked like it was made for me!

  • I had purchased my dress from another vendor, but needed to have alterations. I made my appointment with Janene and she took my measurements and made the adjustments not once, but twice. The final result was gorgeous. I'm very pleased by her attention to detail and making my dress more gorgeous than it already was. She also has an amazing array of wedding dresses and accessories at reasonable prices. Of course, I saw a dress in the window that I fell in love with. LOL!

  • I went to several bridal boutiques and found them pretty stressful. When I found 'the dress' it was in a very small size, so I called everywhere just trying to find a dress that fit. This is how I stumbled upon Janene's. They were very friendly, helpful, reasonable priced, and I can't believe I wasted time anywhere else. They work exclusively with brides, so no bridesmaid fuss, and while it is small, it is lovely and intimate. Just what I wanted in the first place.

  • Love her!!! I went to Janene for alterations and love her!!! I totally had dress regret- to the point of bursting in tears at my first fitting- but she made a few of my requested changes and my dress was PERFECT!!! Note- she made "a few" of the changes, not all. Sometimes I asked her about a change and she was very direct and said it's a bad idea or it wouldn't work with the dress. I was frustrated at first (well, actually probably until the last fitting!) but TRUST HER, she really knows her stuff. She is very honest, which is tough sometimes, but you will absolutely appreciate it when you see you gorgeous wedding photos!!! PS- her store is amazing- the dresses are BEAUTIFUL!- I wish this was my first stop when shopping for my dress!!!

  • I went to Janene's Bridal for alterations after a recommendation from Glamour Closet in SF. Janene delivered what she promised -- an absolute perfect fit. The quality of her work is very high, and she made me feel comfortable and confident. She really cares about every customer and is dedicated to making sure each bride looks spectacular on her big day. The shop is popular for good reason. But it can be hard to reschedule an appointment at the last minute, so just keep that in mind for planning purposes.

  • I absolutely loved my dress and Stephanie and Janene were both so lovely and helpful. The dress was perfect but a little too big on my wedding day. It could have been my fault for not saying anything on the last fitting or I could have lost too much weight. They have a gorgeous selection and the prices are great. They are also very helpful and let you take your time. Wonderful experience all around.

  • It was an absolute pleasure working with Janene. I searched several places in San Francisco before walking into Janene's, which was a true breath of fresh air. They are so nice...a wonderful change from some of the 'snobby' places in Sf! I found a gorgeous dress there by Martina Liana and everyone commented on how beautiful and couture it looked! I definitely got my money's worth on the dress...it looked twice as expensive as it was. They were also very accomodating in scheduling fittings...having later appointments than most stores which is helpful for the working world!
