The lovely people over at Bespoke & Oak heard that I’m planning my wedding and asked if I’d like to review something from their range. Obviously I said yes. When I browsed their site there were so many things I wanted but quite a few were out of our price range. Having splurged on our venue the rest of the wedding is on a bit of a budget. Eventually we decided on the wedding hangers.
I’ve seen some really lovely wedding photos of all of the dresses hung up while the Bride and her maids get ready. As I have three bridesmaids I ordered 4 of the hangers which costs £36. I know that you can get them cheaper in other places but the quality of these hangers is fantastic. The personalised text is really elegant and is actually laser engraved instead of a sticker like a lot of the others on the market.
One of the concerns I had was that the wooden hangers might snag dresses, but they are incredibly smooth and I very much doubt there will be any snagging. Because the hangers are solid wood (1.3cm thick) they are also really strong and will no doubt hold the weight of a wedding dress easily. They’re also a good size (44.5cm wide) so hopefully there will be no slipping off of the sides either. They do have the usual indents at the edges to prevent that too.
There are children’s hangers available and I did consider getting one for Oliver but in the end I just got one for each of the girls. For the personalisation you just write the names you’d like on the hangers and you can also include a date if you wish. I did – at least R can never forget our anniversary if there’s a hanger in our wardrobe with the date written on it! The personalisation box is also on the sale page so there’s no forgetting to fill in a separate contact form (yes, I have totally done that).
You can get free delivery from Bespoke & Oak, but you are putting your faith in to the Royal Mail standard service, I fully recommend that you splurge on ‘tracked’. By doing so your package will arrive within a week – which is great if you are as disorganised as I can be. These wedding hangers would be a great last minute purchase to add to those ‘finishing touches’ on your wedding day.
I don’t have my dress yet and neither do the bridesmaids, but I am just so excited to see them all hanging up together on the day. My two best friends live up North so it’s really nice to be able to send them photos and talk progress. I have no idea where or when we will be going dress shopping for them, but I’m looking forward to it. I’m also feeling a little nervous because my theme is mismatched brights and we have no idea what we are looking for yet! The wedding hangers will at least provide some uniformity to the pre-wedding photos!
I may be a completely disorganised bride-to-be but at least Bespoke & Oak have helped me get one thing sorted. It’s always the finer details that get forgotten too. Being on a budget means that the finishing touches can often be overlooked, but I really love these personalised wedding hangers. I also love that my bridesmaids are going to have a reminder hanging in their wardrobe forever. No excuses for not sending a happy anniversary text!
