    I cannot wait to try this! I think it is the cutest idea. I am by no means an artsy person, but I am hoping it is as easy as everyone keeps saying that it is...with practice of course.

I was leaning towards their first names cuz then they could use them forever. But I also like to make it seem special for a wedding...which is what it is. Decisions, decisions!

      I just made all of mine titles; I found capital letters to be the hardest to figure out how to make, so once I got 'Bridesmaid' down, I figured I'd just stick with it. Besides, it's such an honor to be part of someone's wedding; to have a keepsake of the role you played in that important day for your friend would be so special, I'm sure it would get just as much use as one with her first name!

      I love this so much thank you for sharing! I also couldn't see myself paying 20 dollars for ach of these when I can make them for a fraction of the price


      You're welcome! I had so much fun making my hangers and making this tutorial. I'm so happy to see lots of views and that alot of ladies have been using it to making thier own. I love seeing the variations and all the little personal touches everyone is adding.

            These are all looking so great. I am getting so many ideas. I just hope I remember them all when it comes time to make them. I think it is an excellent way of letting the girls know you appreciate them taking part in your special day. It is an honor to be a BM, so I am sure these hangers will get a lot of use even after the wedding.

              Hi Ladies,


              I ordered got these flowers for my hangers, but the minimum was 35 assorted colors, so I have tons of extras. If anyone would like some please just inbox me and we can work it out to get them to you. I thought I would post it here as I am sure there are others looking for flowers for their hangers too. I bought them from an ebay seller so I would give them to you very cheap plus shipping if needed :)

                  I hope my hangers look half as nice as yours, I'm not a "crafty"person.

                      Ooh, what a great idea! Thank you for posting this - and everyone else, you've made it look easy enough that I'm going to attempt them!

                      Wish me luck :)
