More than amazing!
Karen Hendrix is absolutely AMAZING!!! I feel compelled to share my story with current and future brides. When I found Karen, I had already spent over five months in a large variety of bridal shops all over Tennessee. I was starting to get a little discouraged due to me not finding the “perfect dress”. Yes, I did come across some dress that were absolutely amazing, but these dress were also out of my price range or the alterations I would’ve needed to make would’ve been way too expensive. It had come down to me having to buckle down and get a dress so I would have one in time for my wedding, and so I tried Google. I went to a couple of dress makers, but their work wasn’t up to par or when I describe to them the kind of dress I wanted they would tell me they couldn’t do that due to my bust or it wouldn’t flatter my figure. To be honest, if I am the one getting married and paying for the dress, I should be able to have any dress I want regardless of what my body shape looked like. I tried one more dress place which was called Karen Hendrix Couture. I really had lost all hope in finding a dress at this point, but I decided to contact them anyway. When I first got there Karen was so welcoming and warm. She really made me feel at home. I voiced my concerns to her about me not being able to find a dress that had all the things I wanted and she listened and began to sketch as I talked. Next thing I knew, Karen had drew my dream dress. There was no holding back on my vision of the perfect wedding dress nor did she make me feel like there was nothing I wanted that she couldn’t make work for my figure. Karen gave me back the faith I needed in making sure I would look perfect on my wedding day. At the end of my first dress fitting appointment, it was late in the day, Karen was about to leave out with me and she stopped and said we must pray before we leave. With me being a preacher’s kid, this meant everything to me that she spread not only the love for her brides, but a love for our creator. Every appointment with Karen was fun, exciting to the mind, and filled with love, hard work and care for all I wanted in my dress. My dress turned out amazing. It was more than I expected it to be and I feel like I owe Karen more than what my dress was worth due to all the hard work she put into my dress and the indescribable feeling I felt when I put my dress on the day of my wedding. I enjoyed my experience so much with Karen that I still keep in contact with her months after my wedding. I really feel like my dress should be featured in Premier Bride or Wedding Style magazine. The details and hard work Karen puts into each bride’s dress is not just a show. Karen works on dresses well into the late hours to make sure that everything is perfect. She takes dresses home to work on them and spends endless hours in doing so. On my wedding day, Karen came to make sure that my dress fit perfectly and that it looked good in pictures. Karen definitely walking in her God giving talent of making couture dresses and I would recommend her to all women who embark on the blessed journey of getting married. Karen Hendrix Couture should be the FIRST PLACE you go to for your customized couture dress which will be made perfect for you on your wedding day. Karen is my fairy wedding couture dress God mother, and she can be yours too. Eliminate any wedding dress shopping by coming to see her. You will be more than pleased with your decision.Sent on 11/29/2018

Karen is incredible
Karen is a miracle worker. She turned my already amazing dress into my dream dress. Her attention to detail is astonishing, and she really listened to what I wanted. I even texted her after my last fitting with a last minute change, and she got it in, no problem. In the end, I had a dress that looked like it was actually sewn onto my body. She is the ONLY person that should be altering your dress in Nashville.Sent on 03/28/2019

Words cannot describe the faces of the brides or mother of the bride like we saw over the past week. I had the honor of being the spotlight designer at the karen hendrix trunk show, where I was designing custom headpieces and veils that reflected both the brides taste and the gown she chose, to see both bride and mother tear up in a state of ecstasy at the joy of karen making their wedding day come to a realization was an honor for me to share in help "topping" it off with a veil or fascinator, I truly recommend brides to see her for a custom fit gown, she insures it fit before wedding day.
