  • There are so many amazing things I can say about Karen and her team. They not only did an incredible job on the alterations with my dress, but added special touches and worked with me on making our wedding day extra special. I cannot recommend them enough to anyone looking for bridal alterations in Nashville!!

  • Karen and her team are AMAZING! I felt important and special every step of the way. I had a couple appointments with the team to make sure my wedding dress was perfect. Even through COVID, Karen and her team were willing to help every step of the way. My wedding unfortunately had to be pushed back a whole year, but Karen was so helpful and allowed me to complete my fittings so that my dress will be ready for me for my wedding next year. My dress is more beautiful than I could ever imagine now that it is fitted! I had to have the hips brought in a little bit, the straps shortened, and my dress shortened quite a bit because I'm very small. My dress now fits me like a glove! Karen is so personable and so sweet. I wish I could write for days about her because they deserve it. If you bring your dress to her, you can be confident that it will turn out PERFECT!

  • Karen and her team are absolute gems. They are wonderful people to work with, professional, friendly, and extremely talented. Karen's eye for design is one of a kind. When I picked my dress, I knew it was going to be a long process to make it perfect for our wedding day, and there is no one I trusted more than Karen and her team. They are miracle workers! I needed the upper part of my dress lined as well as it hemmed and cut to fit my short torso. After a long history with ill-fitting formal dresses, I was nervous but quickly discovered I could trust Karen to make it right. Karen and her team not only cut the most beautiful sweetheart lining for my dress, but were able to adjust the lace overlay to fit correctly on my short torso and back. She didn't give up or settle for second best - she worked to make it right time and time again. I am so thankful to them for making this dress my dream. Cannot recommend them enough!

  • Karen Hendrix Couture came highly recommended by Adorn Nashville where I purchased my dress from. I'll be the first to admit I am a very particular person but especially when it came to my dress (I'm sure most brides' can relate). When I met Karen for my first fitting I immediately knew that my dress was in good hands. I also learned that she had been taking clothes apart and putting them together ever since she was a small child. They don't call her the "Fairy God Mother" for nothing. ;) Karen has a wonderful staff, whom she has personally trained, she delivered on time, and was very professional. The kindness she showed to me in a very stressful, but exciting time in my life was unmeasurable! I would highly recommend her services to any bride! She's absolutely the BEST! -Sam

  • My daughter had gone to two local tailors and one wouldn’t touch her dress, the other would just chop off all the detail on the bottom to shorten the dress.....Feeling defeated, my daughter called Karen and knew from the first call that Karen was the right person to make her wedding gown perfect! She was so accommodating, seeing my daughter and I at the end of the day, so I could be there (I was visiting from out of state). Karen took her time looking over the dress to figure out the best plan to make the necessary alterations, to make it shorter without losing ANY detail. My daughter had several appointment to ensure the dress was a perfect fit! In a word, Karen Hendrix’s and her team are “amazing” Thank you Karen for making my daughters dress fit her like a glove! She looked beautiful!!

  • Karen Hendrix and her team did the alterations for my wedding dress last fall and they were great! Karen is a very talented designer and tailor, and her team was kind and professional. They did a great job with my dress and their pricing was very reasonable. I needed the top neckline trimmed down, the inner corset taken in, and a bustle added (American). They also added a new comb to my mother’s old veil. They did a really nice job with all of it. The neckline part was a little tricky, and they discussed different options with me made good suggestions up front. We had several fittings to make sure everything went right. Then they steamed my dress and stored it (laid out so it wouldn’t wrinkle!) before my wedding day. Overall they were very caring and competent and I enjoyed working with them!

  • Karen was wonderful - she did the alterations for my wedding dress and it turned out PERFECTLY and fit like a glove. Furthermore, the alterations for my dress were not easy, I am 5 foot 1 inch tall and had a dress with complicated beading and lace pattern including a lace trim and a gigantic train. She managed to take in the dress on the sides considerably, shorten the dress an entire foot, and you couldn't even tell!!! The bustle for my gigantic train also looked wonderful and stayed up all night. Karen was easy to schedule on Saturday mornings for me and I had all my appointments lined up with plenty of time before my wedding. She is professional, terribly sweet, and does an exceptional job. I would highly recommend her for alterations, especially for complicated dresses!!

  • There is a reason that every bride refers to Karen as their Fair Godmother. She is the sweetest soul and performs magic on every gown she touches. She always made me feel calm and I somehow I ended up looking forward to my fittings! My dress was exactly what I had wanted but better because of Karen's personal touches and ideas. I feel so lucky to have met her and worked with her during such a special and stressful season of life! She was the best decision I made during the wedding process! :)

  • Karen & her team of seamstresses were unbelievable! They took great care of me & made my dress fit the exact way I wanted it to. The dress' faux button's over the zipper, naturally bent away (instead of covering the zipper up) due to the zipper's structure. I didn't want it to lay this way, because when it was on, it made it appear that the dress was too tight, which wasn't the case at all. Karen made adjustments to the dress & added extra hooks to make this fabric lay flat so that I was not uncomfortable in my dress the day of. Her team works to go above & beyond for her clients.

  • LOOK NO FURTHER -- Karen is an absolute miracle worker. She tailored my wedding dress effortlessly, and it fit like an absolute dream. She is efficient, incredibly warm, and very, very talented (as well as affordable). I can't recommend her enough, and will absolutely be revisiting her for any alterations in the future. Highly, HIGHLY recommend!!

  • I would highly recommend Karen to all! She is extremely talented at what she does and is the absolute sweetest!! I never once hesitated my decision after meeting Karen during the first fitting. She made sure I was happy and confident at each fitting no matter how much time it took. Everything fit perfectly when I arrived for pick up. On my wedding day I felt like a princess thanks to Karen and her talented crew!!

  • Karen Hendrix is a fairy godmother. She did my bridal alterations for my wedding dress and was an absolute dream to work with. Long story short, due to the overall failure of the bridal shop that I bought my dress from, which shall remain nameless, I received my wedding dress two weeks before my wedding. Karen was a lifesaver and able to fit three bridal fittings and alter my wedding dress a week before my wedding. She did the most beautiful alteration job. Karen is an absolutely wonderful person and makes each of her girls feel truly special and cared for. I am also having Karen Hendrix Couture preserve my wedding dress. I 100% recommend Karen and her team for all your wedding dress needs!

  • I was so disappointed in this experience. I brought my dress here for alterations, because she does custom dresses so I thought she could make the significant alterations I was needing. She was certainly skilled enough to accomplish the changes, but she repeatedly(!!!) forgot what we had discussed. In my first appointment, she offered to create a pocket in my dress, and we agreed that she would fix the sleeves, and remove a layer of the crinoline. When I came to my next fitting, she offered again to create a pocket, had not fixed the sleeves, and had not removed the layer of crinoline. Not only had she not done these things, but she seemed to have forgotten that she said she would. At this fitting, she re-wrote down that she was going to do these things, and pinned the hem but said she wouldn't hem it until the layer of crinoline was removed in case it messed with the skirt. She also found a way to charge me another $75 even though at my first fitting she said I was paid in full. I sho... Read more

  • My best friend is getting married this weekend, and this alterations company has been the most stressful part of the entire thing. First of all, the alterations cost was much more expensive than other companies in town, but she paid the cost because she wanted her dress to be perfect. Karen has had this dress for months, and when it was finally ready ONE WEEK before her big day, we got to the final appointment and it still wasn't done. Karen didn't even call to tell her it wasn't going to be done before she got to the appointment all excited to take it home with her. Also, once she tried it on, another bridesmaid and I found multiple things that needed to be adjusted. The beads on the back didn't cover the zipper and it was crooked, and the bottom of the beads needed to be adjusted as well, as it didn't line up. The lace wasn't sewn on the bottom, there were still pins EVERYWHERE, we couldn't even really practice doing the bustling because even that wasn't done!! So she swears to my be... Read more
