Bee, you’re way overthinking this.  Each of you should have the wedding you want.  Even if you have some overlapping guests, after two months, I doubt they’re going to remember details like the flavor of your cake. 

As long as neither of you is blatantly and intentionally carbon-copying the details of each other’s weddings, there is no reason to check in and micromanage things like this.

Have your lemon cake and eat hers too.

If she ends a friendship over a lemon cake, she’s a lemon of a friend.

Literally not a big deal at all! There are a few pretty standard wedding cake flavours, most people have the same.

Lemon cake is pretty common. If you love lemon cake so much that you make it every other week she shouldn’t be surprised that you’d want lemon cake at your wedding. Few people will notice that you have a similar cake flavor, especially if the cakes look different. Stop asking her permission to move forward with decisions you and your Fiance have made about your wedding.

I mean, I probably wouldn’t do *lemon raspberry*, but I’d still keep lemon. I think it would be silly to change your cake flavour because she’s doing something similar a few months later.

Just have the lemon cake. 

 

My my best friend and I have the same couch and same purse… but we just tend to like some of the same things. Not a bad thing to share interests and opinions with your bestie?

Get the lemon cake. It’s nice of you to check, but is she checking with you too? If she isn’t checking with you then I would stop if I were you. You sound like a sweet and considerate person, but remember this is your and you Fiance day! Literally no one else will care if y’all have a similar cake. 

Maybe don’t do lemon raspberry though 🤣

This is absolutely ridiculous! If you want lemon cake and a specific paper for you invites, have it!! It is so silly and high maintenance that she would care…

timetogoanon1234 :  ok absolutely stop checking with her. If she doesn’t feel like it’s important to check with you before making any decisions, then you shouldn’t feel obligated either.

Do the lemon strawberry cake! That sounds amazing!
