“A dress is never just a dress… And finding the right dress?  Her dress?  That’s magic.”
— Joan Pillow


Joan Pillow has been introducing women to the gowns of their dreams for over thirty years.

Helping to create that moment where a client sees herself as a bride for the very first time—and in that way becoming part of so many joyful moments that follow her down the aisle and into the rest of her life—is truly an honor. We’re grateful to all of our clients who together define the Joan Pillow bride: Elegant, radiant, one in a million.

Thank you for making us a part of your story.

Meet Joan

Joan Pillow began her career in Neiman Marcus’s executive program in Dallas, working in couture fashion alongside Mr. Lawrence Marcus himself. She opened her first bridal salon in Atlanta, Georgia in 1989, and a second, showcase location in Houston’s Highland Village 20 years later. At the urging of industry friends and colleagues, she officially changed the salon’s name to Joan Pillow Bridal in 2011—a milestone she shares with her most loyal associate, and husband of 23 years, Jon.

 Joan regularly takes bridal and debutante appointments in our Houston salon, located on the second floor at 4001 Westheimer Road.
