When planning a wedding, no detail can be deemed too small. You’ve spent thousands of dollars to ensure your wedding day will be absolutely perfect. However, after shooting destination weddings for over 3 years now, we’ve noticed nearly every bride we’ve worked with, has always forgotten this one thing that can make a huge difference to your wedding photos : the wedding dress hanger. Today we wanted to offer a few tips to ensure your wedding dress is honored the way it should be on your special day.
You’ve spent months trying to find the wedding dress you will wear on your special day, and now you finally have it in your possession! When your wedding day arrives, one of the first things we ask for is the wedding dress. We can’t help but cringe when we see the dress still stuffed into the slip, wrinkled and still with the tags on it.
It is an absolute shame to leave it on the plastic hanger it comes on. The same cheap, hangers that you see a shirt hanging on at a retail store. It makes no sense to use!
Plastic hangers not only look cheap, but are extremely unattractive in photos. The photographs we capture will be archived for generations to come. A gorgeous gown deserves to be displayed beautifully for heirloom photographs. Having a custom wedding dress hanger on hand ensures that you won’t have to worry!
Honor your wedding dress by taking it out of the slip first thing on the morning of your wedding day. Have a bridesmaid help you steam it if necessary and hang it somewhere safe on your new custom wedding dress hanger.
Tip: Make sure the custom wedding dress hanger you choose has notches to hold the dress properly. Many wedding dresses are very heavy, so make sure that the hanger is strong enough to hold up your dress!
Wooden, satin padded or custom wire twisted name hangers personalize your wedding photos. A quick online and you will find numerous sites that sell custom wedding dress hangers to choose from.
