I'm in love with the personalized hangers I ordered for friends and family for my upcoming wedding. Amber was a pleasure to work with - VERY good at quick replies and responses, answering questions with lots of detail and photos. Service and shipping was quick! I would definitely recommend! Thanks again!
He put a ring on it and I began twisting wire!
In 2010, the love of my life popped the big question. It took almost 5 years! But it was worth the wait.
As a modern and tech-savvy bride-to-be, I found myself scouring the online wedding world for all of the cute trends and details I could add to my Big Day. During my 15-month engagement, I spent a lot of time on the blogs - a LOT.
I was pleased to see how being a DIY bride on a budget was actually a common trend and I was happy to jump onto that money-saving bandwagon.
When I came across these "wire name wedding hangers", there were only a handful of people making and selling them on Etsy. I'm pretty picky about legibility so I decided to put my DIY skills to work and make my own.
After much time and effort, practice and experiments, and some very sore finger tips, I ended up creating my own style of lettering. Cute, clear, beautiful. Exactly what I needed for my photos!
Word traveled fast. First, through word of mouth, then a page on Facebook. Finally, I set up shop on Etsy in early 2011, and the rest is history!
Around the web
Passionate for all things LOVE! I feel honoured to know I'm adding something extra to a bride's Big Day! As a recent bride myself, I'm always enthralled by the world of weddings and still find myself pinning cute bridal trends.

►Will my dress stay on the hanger?
Indeed it will! There are notches on both arms to keep straps/dress-loops from sliding off.
►What colour hangers do you have?
- Light wood
- Dark wood
- Cherry wood
The light and dark wood hangers are sealed with a very light lacquer, the cherry wood is matte, and all three have a silver hook that you can swivel.
[a photo of all three hanger colours can be found on almost all of my listings in my shop]
►What sort of wire to you use?
I use a much thicker than usual sculpting wire made from aluminum (will not rust!). This wire is naturally very soft and pliable, enabling me to make beautiful lettering. However, the wire keeps it's shape in the air and will not sag. I hand-polish the wire for a brushed-metal finish.
► How many letters fit on a hanger?
The maximum number of letters/spaces I can fit on a hanger is about 13-15.
►Are your letters always lowercase?
As a part of my signature look, I choose to do all of my lettering in lowercase. These letters flow the best together and appear the most legible.
►Is your lettering beautiful and legible?
Yes, you bet! I take great care in making my letters very specific from each other so that there is no question as to what the wording says (ex. I make a's and o's look very different). I have received countless messages from customers saying that I have one of the best lettering styles on Etsy.
