With wedding season fully underway and couples getting married left right and centre, newlyweds are on the lookout to make their wedding the most memorable and the most aesthetic event possible.

However, it should always be remembered that just because it is your wedding, doesn’t mean that you should do things that could prove dangerous and costly to yourself and others.

Recently, Twitter user @obliqueheart took to the platform to urge future brides as well as wedding photographers to stop the trend of hanging dresses onto fire sprinklers.



In the post, the user wrote, “Let’s end the trend of hanging wedding outfits to fire sprinklers. Fire sprinklers should never be misused regardless of the most special event in your life.”


What’s the reason behind it?

The user went on to compile pieces of research to show that doing so could end up flooding the room you are in and cause property damage and even potentially, death.

This is because where you’d hang your dress is close to the fragile glass bulb which triggers the sprinklers to go off.

“The bulb is there so that (when it breaks due to high temperature) then the system goes off.”



“So hanging objects/obstructing the head would pose risks of the bulb accidentally getting smashed. As clothes hangers are sometimes made out of metal, this proves a bigger risk of you accidentally smashing the bulb,” explained the user.

They also pointed out that in some countries, such acts have been classed as illegal.

“What will it cost? Firstly, life. We shouldn’t be selfish and just follow what we like, but not care about the safety of others.”

It is worth noting that even if the hanger does not break the bulb, it could become an obstacle for the sprinkler to function properly.



Hanging things off such sprinklers could either cause the bulb not to break when it is required (in the case of an actual fire). It could also obstruct the spray pattern of the sprinkler and mean that some parts of the room wouldn’t be covered.

Meanwhile, if the bulb were to break when it was not meant to, this could result in the high cost of having to reinstall it, the increased risk of a fire breaking out with no safety measures, the ruining of the wedding clothes, and the wasting of the time and effort for firefighters to come just to find out that there is no fire.

The user went on to suggest other places you could hang your wedding dresses from such as:

  • a tree branch,
  • a door,
  • a window,
  • curtain railings,
  • mannequins.



“So, say no to the hanging of clothes on fire sprinklers! No more unethical conduct please. We can all think maturely and not disrupt safety equipment. Basic safety knowledge,” they added.

“Attention to be paid more by those who are getting married and those who work in photography.”


What do you think of the practice? Should it be made illegal?
