Welcome to Dress The Dress

A DIY Bride who decided to turn a craft into a business.

I made these gorgeous hangers for my own wedding in 2010 and ever since, I've had friends and family ask for them. It was finally time to set up shop.

I started in July of 2014 and have slowly been adding more products and variations to the shop. I love creating new things with the wire, and I always have ideas in the works.

The wire used is a 12 gauge aluminum craft wire. I use this because of the beautiful shiny finish and it is available in a variety of colors. The wire IS malleable, and is only intended for decoration. Please be gentle when handling the hanger and store it in the gift box provided to keep it protected.

Frequently asked questions

Does the Glitter come off the hanger?

I get this question a lot. The glitter is sealed VERY well, and doesn't fall off or get all over the dress. It's not quite as durable as say, a manufactured plastic glitter item like a phone case, and if you dug your fingernail into the hanger, you likely could get a few specs off, otherwise, it's very attached.

Other Wire Colors?

Currently, I have Dark Brown, Rose Gold, Aqua and a Medium Pink that haven't been updated to my wire color chart yet. (I'm working on it!) If you would like to see a photo of any of those colors, please send me a message and I'll send one over.
