A couple of weeks ago, I was honored when our friend N asked me to be her bridesmaid. Now I haven't known N long, only for as long as Jake and I have been dating. But over the last couple of months we've grown very close as we've bonded over wedding planning and life in general.
N is getting married in September so I was launched right into the middle of the shower planning and bachelorette party planning. It's a good thing I've been following along since the beginning, so things weren't too much of a shock. The shower was a laid back BBQ style Jack and Jill shower. I decided to suprise the bride in multiple ways. Her favorite color is green, specifically lime green. I found cute lime green polka dot cupcake liners from The Bakers Confections on Etsy. When N first started wedding planning, I had put in her head that she should have a monogram to brand her wedding. She become inundated with work, school, and wedding drama, so the monogram was left behind. N is marring N, thus N^2 was born. I took her original ideas and concerns and whipped up something with the help of the bridesmaids. Details on the cupcakes and monogram can be found on my cupcake blog.
