Ever gone to a wedding and hung up the wedding dress and took a step back to admire the view only to see the beautiful plastic hanger from the store standing in front of you?
For years I kept seeing these gorgeous dresses, hanging them up in beautiful locations to show them off only to pull up the photo later and wish I’d had a gorgeous hanger to go with that dress! Sometimes brides bring cute hangers for everyone and all the bridesmaids dresses too, but sometimes you get what you get (and you don’t throw a fit).
So I wanted to give you guys a quick solution. Not only can this fix up that one wedding shot we all like to get, but it also helps you look like the awesomesauce wedding professional you are. It’s a small investment, but you can buy your own set of wedding hangers and either give them to each bride or have them to bring to weddings.
Sometimes if I give these hangers to the bride I find they wished they had one that said something else so I like to just have a set to use in case they don’t have their own. Let’s face it, not all brides are as detail oriented as I am!
These are a quick thing to buy and are cool and handmade! You can find them >here< from all kinds of different Etsy vendors. They’re all pretty awesome and cheap, especially if you just buy a set and use them at every wedding. The set I have says, “bride,” “bridesmaid,” and “groom.” I have the groom one just in case the bride sees the one I use on her dress and asks if I have one for the groom too.
Anyway, this is a quick tip for all you wedding photographers on a little piece you can add to your wedding kit. I promise your brides will appreciate you for it!
