Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Flower crowns, chalkboards, twine and mason jars: these are a few of the indie bride's favorite things. In the last few years, a social media phenomenon known as Pinterest wedding boards have inspired both creative folks to show off their handmade skills and less-crafty gals to brush up on their DIY game, resulting in ridiculously unique productions that even Martha Stewart would envy.

To ensure that every element of your dream day is worthy of a Pin, we've rounded up 10 unique, customization-happy resources—from craft superstore Moskatels to alt gown shop Lovely Bride to nail art haven Marie Nails—that will help you get there.
