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.
Racked's second annual Weddings Week is right around the corner, and we will be bringing the bridal in many different ways. Additionally, there is one feature we are opening up to our readers in advance: A new, very special (very short) Racked correspondant, Olive the Flower Girl, will be serving in the official capacity of our resident expert on all things flower-girl related. Want to know what color dress to never force on a 12 year old? How old is too old for Mary Janes? How to do makeup without making your adolescent bridal party members look like pageant princesses? Leave your burning questions in the comments or send them to the tipline. We'll make sure Olive gets you an answer. [Mgmt]
