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.

You've spent the better part of these past few weeks, months, even years pinning silk organza dreams onto a Pinterest board, and now that you've got that ring on your finger the time's come to realize those visions in the flesh. Shopping for your wedding dress can be one of the most emotional, if not the most emotional events leading up to the big day, and if you're at the right store, the experience won't fall anywhere short of magical.

Whether you're a bride with a low budget or no budget, there is sure to be a bridal store on this map for you. As you savvy Miamian probably predicted, the bulk of this map settles in on Miracle Mile, however we found that Miami's most high-brow bridal stores are actually located miles away. New to this list is The Find Bridal, a wedding dress sample store, and La Vie en Blanc, a store that buys and resells lightly loved designer gowns for a serious fraction of the price.

But we we're not ready to give them all away, yet. Without further ado, here come Miami's best bridal stores for accessories and gowns.
