We’re taking it back (way back!) in light of this week’s trending story that is testament to “it’s never too late for love”. On June 13th, this adorable elderly couple will say “I do” at the ripe age of 103 and 92 years! That’s a combined age of 195 years!! Wowsers. Coincidentally, two of our real wedding submissions this week had a vintage charm, fitting for our Friday roundups theme.
I’ve had that terrifying moment or two where I’ve looked down at my bare ring finger and panicked… but I’ve never had it show up in my pup’s poop. I can’t decide whether this lady is lucky or unfortunate. I guess she’ll think twice before taking it off again… pregnant & swollen or not!
It’s been a good week for ladies reunited with their wedding rings. I’m glad that this Boston Marathon runner was reunited with her lost wedding ring, too. :)

Five lovely bridesmaids— totally manageable.
… but Two HUNDRED plus?!! You must be trying to break a world record. Well, that’s exactly what this couple is trying to do when they tie the knot this weekend in Tampa Bay, FL! Crazy? Maybe.
That’s over double the size of most weddings, not to mention that I had only a handful of girlfriends that I felt comfortable having by my side as I married my hubby dearest just over a year ago!
What are your thoughts? Sound off in the comments below after you’re all done catching up with this week’s blog happenings. :)
Continue to Friday Roundups!
Think back to your wedding dress shopping experience. Did you ever feel uncomfortable with your sales associate? Well, a bridal boutique in Lewisville, Texas is leveraging technology to match their brides with a sales associate that complements their personalities. They’ve even made their business transactions mobile and made it easier for their brides to advocate for them on social media. Way to give yourself a competitive edge! Definitely a must visit if you’re a local or in the area.

Why have one wedding when you can have thirty eight weddings around the world for less cost? Well, that’s exactly what this adventurous couple did when they ditched the traditional ceremony and got hitched worldwide.

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!
Get Lucky with This Week’s Roundups:
… 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.
