I plan on DIY-ing a hanger for my wedding gown, with a wire phrase at the bottom.
I am not sure if I should just do the word “bride”, or I should do “Mrs. New Last Name”
My only concern with the last name is that my fiance’s last name is 8 charachters long, and the first letter is an L. Will Mrs. L******* be too long/too big to fit on the wire? Secondly, how would a capital L look when made in wire. I just can’t picture it.
Part of me leans towards “bride” since I will only be a bride one day of my life, and Mrs. L the rest of my life. LOL
Any advice would be appreciated.

I didn’t vote because I am making my own hangers as well, and cannot decide either!
In your case, with the long last name, I’m leaning toward “bride” and a heart on either side 🙂 If you need inspiration on how to make a capital L, I would check all the pictures from etsy sellers and see if there is an example of a name starting with an L.

My new last name will be 10 letters long and I still did the Mrs. Wicklund and still had room for a heart at the beginning

@BrookieCookie9: Those look awesome!
How did you do the capital L? did you cut the wire?

I would put your last name if you can make it fit and look nice. Otherwise, I’d put the date!

@MrsMermaid: No if you look very closely, you will see basically the wire is doubled up there. I did put a little hot glue to help hold the wires together. I went up, did the little loop, back again on the little loop, down , and then the big loop at the bottom of the L. Hope that explains it a little bit…

If you do Bride then you can sell it afterwards and make some cash. 😉 But I love the “Mrs. Lastname”, too.

I ordered mine and got Mrs. New Last Name on it because it’s the most personal one.

I did Mrs New Last name so I could use it forever

I think if you’re going through all the love of DIY-ing that the PERSONAL touch of your new last name would be an amazing feature.
Lots of girls are brides but you are the NEW Mrs. L so I say embrace it!

I vote not bride. If this is something you’re DIY then I guess you don’t want to just throw it away later. It’ll feel weird to keep using it after your wedding.
If you’re worried about your name being too long, how about a word to represent your relationship of wedding day. Like love or at last or something like that?
