When it comes to wedding styling, it’s all about those finishing touches. With a photographer often snapping away from the preparations to the party, it’s worth considering how you might incorporate your wedding suite – or wherever you’re getting ready – into your theme, and we think investing in some wedding coat hangers is a great place to start.
After all the effort you've spent finding the perfect dresses, they’re a dreamy addition that will show them off at their very best, but it's not just about the aesthetic. When you have a large wedding party with bridesmaids dresses in the same or similar styles, personalised hangers can help your 'maids easily identify which dress is theirs. Trust us, the smallest things can help relieve stress and keep things running smoothly on your wedding morning.
If your wedding budget won't stretch to multiple hangers, don't panic. We've also rounded-up a selection of wedding coat hanger tags that are as pretty as they are purse-friendly and can be doubled up as wedding keepsakes.
We've also tracked down some of the best wedding coat hanger tutorials. So if you fancy getting creative and crafting something yourself, give them a go. Wedding DIY can be a relaxing way to unwind from planning stress and add a totally unique touch to your day.

It’s simple but effective: a pretty bow tied to the top of your hangers just adds a little something to the look. Add them in a colour that matches your dresses or your wedding theme and they’ll look beautiful in your photos.
