Highly Recommend

This sweet bridal shop makes you feel right at home and offers a wide variety of beautiful dresses that makes saying YES just so much easier. So very thankful for the Bridal Rail and their team that took the stress of finding my perfect wedding dress away. The A+ service provided by this team was far superior to anywhere else. If you’re looking for your next dress, this IS the place to go!

Gem of a bridal shop! Service & Price Exceptional

As one of the previous owners of The Bridal Rail, I am well aware of the superior service and products it offers. So when it came time for my son's wedding, there was no question as to where I was getting my mother's dress. Did I shop around? Absolutely, and I'm so glad I did because in doing so, it only confirmed what I already knew. I visited several nice shops but none came close. In working closely with Janine, she made it so easy to find the perfect Jovani gown, fitted to perfection by her amazing seamstress, Amber!
After shopping throughout Dallas, my daughter-in-law, Yaelis, also found her dream gown at The Bridal Rail, a beautiful Allure gown with matching cathedral veil. Yaelis wanted to customize her gown by adding bishop sleeves and Amber was so patient and attentive to her needs. The end result was pure perfection. She looked and felt so beautiful and received so many compliments.
Having been on the customer service end for years at The Bridal Rail, my expectations are high but I must say Janine and her staff exceeded my expectations. We were so cared for and I felt so blessed to be on the receiving end of The Bridal Rail's amazing service. If I could give one tip to someone shopping whether it be bridal, mothers, bridesmaid, flower girls, prom or tuxes - really they have it all! - I would say go to The Bridal Rail, they have been doing this for over 40 years for a reason, because they really are that good!

Hi there, I’m Janine! I'm from the small community of Hackberry, Texas and graduated from The University of Texas at Austin – Hook ‘Em! I have always been drawn to fashion, hard work, and love stories and grew up making pretend wedding invitations for all of my friends on Valentine’s Day and reading every wedding magazine I could get my hands on. I fell in love with the bridal industry in 2015 while completing my internship at The Bridal Rail and knew it was exactly where I belonged. In 2023, I made The Bridal Rail my own and it has been a dream ever since.

When I’m not making dress dreams come true, you can find me working for my family’s cattle company. There’s no shortage of excitement in my life with lots of cows, goats, and chickens to chase, hay to make, fish to catch, and deer to hunt. I also recently got engaged to my sweetheart, John, who never turns down a crazy bridal shop idea I have and knows my Kendra Scott jewelry obsession so well he picked out the perfect Kendra Scott engagement ring for me to wear forever!

If you’re looking for a sewing wizard to turn THE dress into YOUR dream dress, I'm your girl! I specialize in wedding and formal gown alterations, can whip a mean stitch, and love a good challenge. I'm fantastic at creating custom pieces including adding bridal sleeves, rhinestone bow ties, garters made from mom’s wedding dress and so much more!

Sewing has been a passion of mine since I was a little girl learning to sew on my grandmother’s sewing machine. I have been sewing professionally for over six years and enjoy creating special memories for all of our clients. I have established myself as one of the top bridal seamstresses in Central Texas.

I am the designated go-to school girl and spend my weekends at the shop helping customers find their perfect bridal and prom dresses! I'm quite the fashionista and make fashion fun for all of our customers. When I'm not at the shop making dress dreams come true, I'm busy cheerleading, playing tennis, and going on adventures with my family.
