Hangers to make your photographer happy


Hang your gown on a pretty hanger not a plastic one.

Tsk. Tsk. Tsk. You spent a pretty penny (or quite a few) on your wedding day gown. And then your photographer had to photograph it on the wire hanger from the dry cleaners, that strangely shaped contraption from the hotel suite, or those plain plastic ones that are strewn throughout your closet.

Brides, nothing will make your photographer happier, or your photos look better than a pretty hanger holding your wedding day gown. Wood, sculpted wire, and those decorated with satin, flowers, and more—I found a few that will make it everything pretty on one of my fave Web sites, Etsy.com. (I should be on the payroll there, no? Check out more custom bridal goods that we love from Etsy.com here, here, and here!)

Lila Frances sculpted wire hangers (pictured left) are the most customizable. Have one for each of your 'maids to hold their dresses, one for you with your new married name, and even on for the groom's coat.

Another Paloma's Nest favorite, wooden stamped hangers with your names and wedding date, or special phrase.

Padded with silk, flowers and feathers from Janny Fay. Add your own details to personalize it for you or your girls.

A hand-carved wooden option from Pretty Things 4 U, is sturdy and decorative but sophisticated enough for hanging guests coats in the closet once you're hitched and home.

Hand-woven, simple, clean but still so feminine and pretty for portraits by Nutfield Weaver.

Which one will you hang your gown on?

About Hannah

There are few things Hannah loves more than Southern charm, classic Ray Ban aviators, a string of pearls, and Sunday afternoons. An admirer of all things lovely and especially the written word, she put her English degree to good use after graduating from UNC Chapel Hill and moved to Charleston where she dove head first into the journalism scene, covering everything from boutique openings to café launches. But the Old North State (and a fiancé of her own) called her back home and now she’s using her experience, creativity and knowledge to write about what she loves most—love.
