It looks nice, but unprofessional, I think it’s because of all the wiggles like you stated though! I would like to see a pic once it’s completed for a full view of it!

I think it looks great. I would probably do the ‘r’ bit different though. It definitely needs a something on the hanger, I’d love to see it finished to!

It’s impressive but definitely looks DIY. Perhaps that’s part of the charm?

@lovelynners:  the letters are legible and neat so I think they are fine.  I’ve made a bride hanger before and just want to warn you that if you twist the wire around too much it is ill break so you should make whatever changes you want to make to the wire lettering BEFORE you attach it to the hanger.  

Also, you may want to change the ‘r’ because it looks like an ‘n’.  I’m going to attach a picture of a hanger I made with a more distinctive ‘r’ in case it helps.  Good luck!

Stupid auto correct on my iPad keeps changing my words on me! Sorry if my prior post had random words thrown in!

@lovelynners:  you don’t have to unravel it to make the little loop. Just push the top of the ‘r’ down and twist a look into the top left of the ‘r’

It looks to me like the plier marks are visible on the wire.  Try wrapping the grips of the pliers in a thin piece of fabric like t-shirt scraps to keep them from making marks? Also, don’t worry about twisting the two strands together on letters like the T and Y- just let them flow next to each other like in the pic @ArtDecoLisa posted.  It looks more effortless.  Also, on the Y- can you let the bottom loop the way a cursive Y would, rather than having the bottom hook wrap back up itself?

I think it looks great. I could never do that haha. I think PPs advice about the R is hurry helpful, but other than that, lovely.

Hmm. It looks good but I think you need to put some style on it to look classic. Such as curved heart or anything that will look cute and sweet. But as of now, it looks well.
