Details are everything in a wedding. There are so many of them! I needed a notebook to keep track of all the details for my wedding. If you’re not already completely overwhelmed by your list of details, consider adding personalized wedding hangers to your pile of bridal accessories. Every photographer takes a million pictures of your dress. If you’re going to hang it in the window, over the door or from a tree, why not make the hanger holding the dress add to the image rather than detract from it? Luckily, you can find these fun wedding hangers right here in town from a Portland-based seller on Etsy, Your Bridal. Here are a few examples of their work at $20 per hanger:

Want to try your hand at a little wire bending of your own? Here’s a step-by-step guide for how to make your own custom wedding hangers brought to you by fellow wedding planners, Chris and Michelle:
- Wooden hanger. Target has a 5-pack for $3.99.
