    As long as they’re good quality, I would love one with my name on it. I tend to use el-cheapo hangers at home, so to have one I can hang my favourite dress on would be great! 🙂

    They’re not my style, but if you like them go for it! In pictures, it might look less busy if yours was the only one with writing, and the others had wire hearts or something instead of names.

    I think they’re kind of a waste of money.  I had a niceer wooden hanger for my dress picture, which I forgot.  I had about two seconds of whoops…my dress picture will be with a plastic hanger before I didn’t care anymore.  They’re just one of many details that you can choose to care about or not.

    I think they make sense for the bride who is changing her name-  ooh ahh new name.  But as a BM it’s a bit weird.  Would you do last names?  Because some girls may have different last names after they get married.  As a BM, I would probably keep the hanger but I would rather have something else.

    I don’t like them. I would probably only use it for the photos you request and it would be put in the back of the closet.

    All my hangers at home match. It doesn’t matter how cute or fancy a hanger is, if it doesn’t match it can’t live here.

    I feel the same way about most things, though. I have a set of shot glasses, I don’t want a non-matching gifted shot glass. I have a bottle opener that matches my barware, I don’t want a non-matching bottle opener. My crusade against clutter trumps the sentimental value of keepsakes usually, for better or worse.

    That’s not to say I wouldn’t appreciate the gift, honestly! It’s a really sweet gesture, and I certainly don’t expect someone to have to become an expert on my tastes and style to do a nice thing for me. It’s all good.

    @MsGinkgo:  Not a fan. I guess I would use it because a hanger is a hanger, but I wouldn’t appreciate getting one as a “gift.” I see them more as something that the bride wants for pictures rather than a thoughtful gift for BMs.

    @MsGinkgo:  I guess as a BM I wouldn’t appreciate the hanger that much, that’s all.  And if they don’t care about it, then it seems like a waste of money, to me personally.  Maybe other bees would be thrilled to get one.

    @MsGinkgo:  If you want the girls to have hangers, then by all means, get them hangers. It sounds like you want your girls to be happy, which is great! I’m just giving my honest feedback that hangers aren’t my cup of tea. I feel the same way about a lot of “typical” bridesmaid gifts, so maybe I’m just a weirdo.

    I can always use another hanger so, sure, I wouldn’t mind getting one as a bridesmaid.  I would get them with your bridesmaids’ first names on them.
