    I wouldn’t dislike it but I wouldn’t be thrilled to receive it. Just make sure it says their names and not ‘bridesmaid’ or anything like that. I’m just not real sure what I would use it for.

    Not particularly. This is more a prop for the bride’s pictures than a gift to the bridesmaids. All my hangers at home are the same so I probably wouldn’t use or keep it.

    I bought a Mrs. Whodat one for myself but I think you could find something they’d like better for the $20.

    eh, not so much. its obviously FOR THE WEDDING, which makes it not a gift, and just something for photos to be taken of. its almost impossible to hang really clothes on one of those hangers in the closet, so its a useless gift in terms of utility post-wedding.

    i got one for myself, but i’m using all my bridesmaid-gift money on things that arent at all wedding-specific and i think they can use again.

    It’s certainly a nice touch, but if you decide to do this I think you should also include a little something else since this isn’t something they’ll probably use frequently.  I know personally, with our closet system I like using plastic hangers.  These would provide a cute photo op, but that’s more so a gift for you than them.

    I wouldn’t really have much use for it.

    I personally don’t think anything like this, that brides generally want pictures of should be considered a “gift”.

    I have one for myself (for the photos), but I don’t think I’d like one as a gift (I would never turn it away, of course!).  If you did get them those, I would find another, more personal/practical gift.

    I think these are really cute, but not as a Bridesmaid or Best Man gift. A gift should be something they can use other than at the wedding. It’s cute for the wedding pictures, but after the wedding, it’s really just a hanger. I would get them something else they will be able to enjoy after the wedding, at least a little something in addition to the hanger.

    Hmm, I really think it’s a bit “whatever” I’d be fine with one if it didn’t seem like the actual gift but more “bought for pictures and ease, but you can keep it” and there was another gift. On the other hand, a gift is a gift and it’s not awful or inconvenient, and I’m sure they could find a use for it even if it wasn’t used as an actual clothes hanger.

    Basically, I’m not overly wowed by it, but I don’t hate it at all.

    I got one from the bride but it was clearly for pictures and she got us other things as part of our presents. The hangers had her wedding date on them and now it’s just in my closet being used as well, a hanger.

    I got them, mostly for the picture and because all the dresses were the same, so we could tell which dress belonged to which girl!  On the other hand, I didn’t count it as part of the Bridesmaid or Best Man gift.
