What to look for in a wedding dress hanger

A bridal hanger is a great way to display your wedding dress and adds a personal touch to your getting ready photos. When it comes to shopping for a wedding dress hanger, you should opt for a style that reflects your aesthetic and complements your wedding theme and dress. For brides throwing a rustic wedding, simple raw wood hangers with painted floral details are always a romantic choice. More of a traditional bridal? Opt for padded hangers in shimmering satin, toile, or sumptuous velvet. And if you're looking for a personalized option, consider customizable hangers that come complete with your new initials or last name.

Lastly, while bridal hangers are beautiful to look at, keep in mind that they also have to be functional, so it's best to always choose a sturdy style that can support the weight of your wedding gown.

FAQ
  • Can I personalize my wedding dress hanger?

    Yes! Many retailers and Etsy shops offer customization services that are perfect for displaying your new initials or moniker.

  • What wedding dress hangers work best for heavy gowns?

    It's important to invest in a sturdy hanger as the very last thing you want is for your gown to end up on the floor. Thick wooden hangers, padded hangers, and styles with fabrics that have some grip like velvet are all great options for heavier wedding gowns.

  • Does my bridal party need hangers?

    While bridal party hangers are a completely optional item, they're a great way to display getting-ready robes and bridal party dresses and make for an extra special keepsake for your bridal party.
