Save those basic plastic hangers for another day! These pretty wedding dress hangers will add the perfect finishing touch to your gown.

No doubt you've thought a lot about your wedding dress leading up to the big day, but what about your wedding dress hanger? That's right — how you display your gown on the morning of your wedding deserves just as much attention as the dress itself. Not only is a decorative wedding dress hanger a practical item to have on hand (you'll need to hang your dress up to keep it wrinkle and stain-free), but it's a tiny detail that can actually make all the difference when it comes to your wedding photos. Your photographer will definitely want to capture closeups of your wedding dress while you're getting ready, and compared to the hanger provided by your wedding seamstress — or one that you grabbed from your closet at the last minute — a cute wedding dress hanger will look much nicer in photos. Plus, it's a fabulous excuse to treat yourself to more bride swag! We found 20 stylish options to get you started. 

Show off your once-in-a-lifetime gown with these wedding dress hangers for every style and budget. 

We're big fans of rose gold wedding decor, and these custom wedding dress hangers are only fueling our crush on the rosy hue. It looks equally fabulous against white and natural wood hangers, with a pretty blush bow to match.

Padded wedding dress hangers are a retro-inspired alternative to wooden or metal styles. We think these blue and white striped hangers would be cute for a summertime wedding by the water, and since they come in a pack of five, you can match your bridesmaids!

We didn't know it was possible for a hanger to be this pretty. White calligraphy and a fabric rose add dreamy vibes to this light wooden hanger, which can be personalized with a date, name, and wedding party role (ideal if you're giving these as bridesmaid gifts).
