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.

Fake Wedding Cake or Nah? Friday Roundups!Photo credit: Your Lovely Wedding 

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. :)

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. :)

TGIF! Who's on Cloud Nine this Friday

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!
