Personalized Wedding Dress Hangers
What is a Dress Hanger?
First things first: what is a personalized dress hanger? If you haven’t seen one yet, it is a hanger for your wedding dress. It is made of wood with wire formed into your first name, wedding date, or future last name. Here’s one example:
How Are Dress Hangers Used?
Secondly, how are they used? Dress hangers are primarily used as a wedding photo prop for your wedding dress or bridal party dress photo.
Dress hangers make a great gift because they’re affordable, one-of-a-kind, and become a lasting keepsake of your wedding day.
Where to Buy Personalized Dress Hangers for Weddings
Before Erica of Get Hung Up began her thriving bridal hanger shop on Etsy, she was planning her own wedding. She and her mother began designing a handmade wedding gown made from her aunt’s wedding dress; she wanted something one-of-a-kind to wear on her wedding day, and designing her own dress was one of her favorite memories. Once the dress was completed, Erica knew she wanted to display her dress ins a truly unique way to fit her wedding theme and personality. So, as many often do, she decided to make it herself — and it was an absolute hit! Erica had seen several versions of personalized wedding hangers on the web, but she wanted something that was truly unique. She made her own wedding dress hanger for her wedding day and loved it!
Erica is the creator of the (original!) crystal, pearl, and burned/engraved wedding date hanger and, after several people requested where they could get their own, she knew her design was a hit. She launched Get Hung Up immediately and her personalized dress hangers started selling like crazy. Today, she has over 13,000 (whoa!) sales on Etsy and over two-thousand rave reviews about her bridal hangers. It is evident she has created a successful product — to be honest, she’s always impressing us with her latest designs!
One of my favorite things about Get Hung Up is the many different designs to choose from.
