This perfect pretty pink wedding cake is 100% real, but apparently there’s a surprising new trend alert making waves in the wedding industry. Would you consider a fake wedding cake if it could save you $1000 or more? I guess it’s the bridal version of buying a knock off designer bag vs. the real thing. There are some of us gals who don’t mind and some that don’t feel quite right about it all. Where do you stand? Tell us in the comments below. :)

What happens when you’re wedding dress shopping and a total stranger picks up the tab? Well, that’s what happened to this lucky Utah bride to be. A complete stranger (who wants to remain anonymous) had paid for her wedding dress valued at $465 in full. Now THAT doesn’t happen every day…. count your blessings, Liz!

… Yep, one HUNDRED and one gay weddings! Way to go, Guy Fieri.
Everyone’s favorite Food Network TV host officiated a mass same-sex wedding in The Sunshine State last weekend, shortly after the ban on same-sex marriages was lifted in January.
Congratulations and best wishes to all the lovely couples! We support you. :)

Props to The Wicked Little Cake Company for this wicked wedding cake inspired by pebbles the pup. Super cute, isn’t it?!
Dogs are so awesome, just like love and weddings. I guess that’s why we’re recognizing all three in this week’s Friday roundups. :)
We had a super busy week with our lovely and inspiring Valentine’s Day Design Roundups, FIRST blog highlights post for the year and a handful of stellar featured invitations, vendor interviews and real weddings!
But first, can I just say that my heart melted when I saw this. (I’m sure yours will, too)

What’s the one thing no couple can control on their wedding day? The weather. According to The Telegraph UK, however, a luxury travel company claims it can guarantee that the only cloud you will see on your special day is, well, Cloud Nine!
Oliver Travel’s weather modification technique called ‘cloud seeding’ comes with an expensive price tag, but does ensure a ‘perfect’, rain-free wedding day. It got me thinking, however, rainy real wedding submissions are actually some of the most gorgeous we’ve seen, including a rainy winter wedding shared with us by Holly Von Lanken photography earlier this week.
Tell us what you think about this cloud buster in the comments below!

I just love it when a couple isn’t afraid of incorporating fun, unique details into their special day ~ whether it be a pair of colorful knee high socks (like the gorgeous bride in Wednesday’s real wedding) or an unconventional arch like the one you see above! Do you have any quirky real weddings you’d like to share? Email [email protected] for a chance to be featured on our weddings blog. Can’t wait to see what you send us. :)

Imagine you were a flower girl (once upon a time ago!) and were given the single task of looking cute while throwing petals down the aisle, alongside some boy who probably thought you had the cooties. Well, what if you ended up walking down the aisle (for a second time!) two decades later with that very same boy. The adorable flower girl and ring bearer in the picture above you may be siblings but these two weren’t… and that is their love story! Talk about deja vu! Catch the story in this week’s trending topics, interviews, features, real weddings & more.
Take me to Friday roundups!

Wondering why this beautiful bride is covered in paint? Well, it’s a style of wedding photography commonly referred to as “trash the dress” that’s gained momentum in recent years. I’ll have to admit that the concept of “trashing” my dress never really appealed to me… but after reading bride-to-be Shelby Swink’s story and seeing the fun photo session by Elizabeth Hoard Photography that went viral this week, I do see a situation or two where destroying my dress could be, well, therapeutic! Thoughts? (share them in the comments below)
