I am so excited! After 8 weeks of waiting, my personalized dress hanger from lilafrances finally came in! This is really the first thing I’ve gotten that has my soon-to-be last name on it.
Do you have a personalized or pretty hanger for your dress for photos on the day of? Show us!

I have seen a lot of companies that do this, where did you get yours?

I got it from lilafrances on etsy. I think she is the original dress hanger “lady.” There are a lot of sellers on etsy now that do it, but I still like lilafrances’s hanger the best. Unfortunately, she does take 10-12 weeks for orders. I got mine at 10 weeks, because I explained how close my wedding is. She also only takes orders on 1 day of the month. I think she takes 75 orders and then she closes it down. Which was also one reason why I wanted to use her, I think the competitive side of me decided that actually getting an order through her would be “winning.” Haha. She usually posts on her website when she’s opening up for orders for the next month. The day I placed my order, she opened it up at 11:00am and by 11:04 she shut it down. Her 75 orders were reached. I was so excited I “won” one:)
I’m not sure about other sellers on etsy, they may have shorter timelines.

I made mine too, except it reads “bride” and I attached the wire wording to a wooden hanger. I almost bought one on Etsy but thought I’d at least give it a try myself and it ended up costing me only $4! And it looks just as good! I just love how these look in photos with the dress hanging from it.

I LOVE how yours is personalized with your future last name 🙂 I would have loved to do that, but I don’t think I am taking FI’s name. So, I bought this one instead, now I can’t wait for it to arrive!!

I made this as a shower gift for a relative. It says “Mme.” (Madame) instead of the usual Mrs. because she is a French teacher. It’s not finished – I still have to hammer down the loops that went through the wood and straighten it up a bit. It was such an easy project but I wish I could get it as perfect as the pros do it!

I am thinking about getting one of these ones
I’m still not decided about name changing so I might just get the heart one.
I love how curly and amazing her writing is! I like these wooden ones as they seem more sturdy for holding a heavy dress.

And I just realised that today they have dropped their shipping to Australia from $19 to $11! It was the crazy shipping price that was putting me off so it must be a sign! I think I will have to buy.
