I like the idea of doing "bride" because I won't be changing my last name right away.

Hello ladies, I love the custom wedding dress hangers and considered buying mine from etsy, but couldn't bring myself to pay $20+ knowing I could make it myself for only a few dollars each. A couple ladies asked for instructions on how I made mine, so here it goes, my first tutorial ever... Please let me know if you have any questions. http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/image/id/879333/width/600/height/337 What you'll need: Wooden hangers (preferably without the wooden dowel) - bought on sale at Zellers 12 guage aluminum wire - from Michaels in the jewelery section (3 yds is enough to make about 2 - 3 hangers) Wire cutters Lipgloss or something else round Paper and pencil Drill and some sort of glue (not pictured) Decorative flowers - from Michaels, or ribbon http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/image/id/879335/width/600/height/337 First I had my fiancé help me pull/break off the wooden dowels from all the hangers http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/image/id/879336/width/600/height/337 Then drew a template by tracing the bottom edge of the hangers onto paper and drawing my letters to fit http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/image/id/879337/width/600/height/337 Using the template start to shape your letters using your fingers. Make sure you leave enough straight wire at the beginning that the top of your first letter will not touch the bottom edge of the hanger. You may want to have some extra wire on the side to practice with, if you make a mistake on your project it is very hard to unbend and get the wire straight again. http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/image/id/879338/width/600/height/337 Use the Lipgloss to wrap the wire around to make circular shapes http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/image/id/879339/width/600/height/337 Leave enough straight wire at the end of your word that the top of your last letter does not touch the bottom of your hanger. Next you drill a tiny hole on each end of the inner side of the hanger. Cut the wire so it will fit in the holes and put a tiny bit of wood glue on the tip of the wire before putting it in the drilled hole. http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/image/id/879340/width/600/height/337 Add your flower, these ones come with a sticky backing, or tie on a ribbon and voila! You're done, now make one for all the ladies in your wedding party. http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/image/id/879341/width/600/height/337 Please let me know if you have any questions, and post pictures of your creations. Have fun!

My sister-in-law makes these as a small hobby business...I love the flower idea, I'll be sure to mention it to her. Thanks for sharing!

    • Hello Kim;) Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!!!! My name is Marisol Vera and I am wedding planner; if you are looking for a destination wedding Cancun and Riviera Maya are great options and pretty safe since all the hotels and resorts are taking great care of their guests and visitors. Please advise which is the destination wedding you are interested in as well as if you have contacted any hotels yet; I will be more than happy to assist you with your big day planning!!! Looking forward to hearing from you very soon;) Have a great day!
    • It depends on how far you can go, Can you go out of US for destination wedding, If yes then their are tons of options Ex. Bali,Thailand is becoming the new hot spot for destination weddings, Other one I would recommend is Rajasthan,India It might be expensive wedding but totally worth it the wedding takes place in palaces. If you don't have that much of budget still their are many options available such as Sicily,Italy - get the authentic wedding ceremony in Italy other one i would recommend is going to Spain their iconic scenery are perfect for a wedding. Thanks🙂
