I just wanted to post my first completed DIY project and hopefully share some inspiration or ideas.  I always knew I wanted to get myself and my girls the cool wedding hangers from Etsy but didn't really want to spend over $100 on 9 hangers that really they are only going to use for the wedding.  I thought of doing the hangers and doing the wire name part myself but I didn't think they would come out that great and I didn't want to do this for 9 hangers. Then I found someone on Etsy who did vinyl decals for the hangers and bingo that's a much better and cheaper option for the same effect.  I bought the vinyl decals from https://www.etsy.com/transaction/182853456?ref=fb2_tnx_title and 9 sets came out to $27.00.  You can customize the decals with different colors and fonts to match your wedding style.  The shipping took a little longer than expected so I would order in advance so you aren't rushed to get the hangers done.  Next I bought the hangers I needed 9 one for myself, groom, maid of honor, 4 bridesmaids, and mother of the bride/groom. I found a pack of 20 good quality wooden hangers from Walmart for $12.00 (I have 11 left over) and coral ribbon from Michaels for 80 cents. Assembly was super easy and the instructions were very clear, I finished all 9 in under an hour.  I love the way they came out and think my girls will love them too.  The total for all 9 hangers came out to $39.80 so each hanger comes to $4.42 much cheaper than getting customized wire hangers for anywhere to $10.00 to $20.00 each. 

 

Here are some pictures of the finished product.

Great idea.  These look really nice!  It's so nice to not spend a ton on the wire hangers too... these look just as good, for a fraction of the cost!
