If you’re having an opulent wedding reception, don’t be afraid to go all out with your cake, which should tie in with your theme too. This luxurious four-tier design would’ve made Marie Antoinette proud, with the duck egg-blue fondant or buttercream, plummy feathers, and accents gold all around.
I decided to post this story in multiple parts because it is going to be quite long. This is my first fic that I have ever posted on here and I just wanted to thank @camelotskingz ,@ignorantradiance-blog , @bugheadotp, @birdlovesafish, @notanotherotherone, @art-and-other-rhythms, @bxchanan-barnes, @cyrokinetic, and @emmythedaydreamer for being so encouraging when I first mentioned posting a fic like this. This story will not include Polly. I made Veronica Betty’s adopted sister because I can’t imagine Polly and Archie paired together as a couple. I also made Kevin Betty’s coworker instead of a female because I just adore Kevin. No copyright infringement intended to the movie or show. Please let me know what you think! :) I would love some feedback.
Some people take years to find something that they are passionate about, but Betty Cooper wasn’t one of them. She found her passion when she was just 8 at a family member’s wedding. This wedding took place shortly after her mother Alice’s passing, which led Betty to play a maternal role for her younger adopted sister Veronica. Veronica’s parents had been close with Betty’s since they were younger and ended up adopting her after her parents were killed in a car accident by a drunk driver when she was 2. Hal had a lot on his plate raising two girls without his beloved Alice and being at an event that involved celebrating love wasn’t an easy thing.
Betty had volunteered to take young Veronica to the restroom and was waiting for her when she heard a shriek. The bride had managed to rip the back of her dress and Betty came up with the clever idea of using Veronica’s ribbon that was in her hair to cover of the tear. The bride ended up asking Betty to hold the train of her dress and from that moment on Betty Cooper was in love with being involved in a bride’s special day.
Betty Cooper was now 25 and trying to accomplish attending two wedding in one night. It wasn’t like she could just back out of going to one now because she was a bridesmaid in both weddings. She had planned to pay a taxi driver to take her back and forth between weddings that night. She arrived at the first wedding with her coworker Kevin Keller who went to go see if he could snag a seat by a mysterious man with long black hair and piercing light blue eyes. ;)
The wedding began and Betty stood behind the bride with a smile on her face. However, Betty started to worry about the time and looked down at her watch, which didn’t go unnoticed by a certain raven haired writer that was currently a guest at the same venue. The journey between weddings started shortly after and at one point was caught changing in the taxi by the same man who had seen her checking her watch earlier. Betty arrived back at the first venue for the last time and was attempting to catch the bouquet when she got knocked out in the process. Betty would soon open her eyes and come face to face with a man dark hair and beautiful blue-green eyes.
“You might want to take it easy when you are getting up”, said the mystery man.
“Are you a doctor?”, Betty groaned.
“No, but do you remember your name?”, said the stranger.
“I’m Betty and you are?”, she asked while holding a hand to her head.
“I’m Jughead”, he said with a smirk on his face.
“I know I hit my head, but you don’t have to make fun of me!”, she exclaimed.
“No really, I go by the name Jughead!”, he chuckled.
Betty struggled to walk around on her own, so Jughead offered to help her catch a cab. They decided to share a cab because he wanted to make sure she made it home safely and was honestly intrigued by her.
“I saw a certain bridesmaid changing gowns in a taxi earlier, who is either a secret agent or trying to attend two wedding in one night?”, asked Jughead.
“Two of my close friends were getting married and I couldn’t miss their weddings”, said Betty.
“Having to experience that once can be bad enough, I can’t even fathom the thought of dealing with that pain twice”, Jughead shuddered.
“Well meeting pleasant people like yourself just makes attending weddings so much more tolerable”, said Betty with a raised brow.
“Love is patient, love is kind, love means slowly losing your mind”, proclaimed Jughead. (No copyright infringement intended)
“And what do you do for a living besides put down the idea of marriage Mr. Jughead?”, asked Betty.
“I am a writer”, replied Jughead.
“Well I’m guessing you don’t write love stories because you seem way to cynical for that”, Betty grumbled as she made her way out of the cab.
The two parted ways and Betty got changed and sat down to read the Commitments section of the New York Journal. Betty always looked forward to reading articles written by a man named Forsythe Pendleton Jones III. Little did Betty Cooper know, that same man was currently in a cab reading her planner that she had left behind with hopes of meeting her once more.
