A dear friend of mine just lost her mother from cancer. They knew the end was near and my friend, who was newly engaged, planned her wedding in about week just so her mom could be there. Then her mom died the day before the wedding. So so sad. My friend lives in Seattle, but her family and mine are all on the east coast, and thats where the wedding took place. I wasn't able to be there.

Anyway, I know my friend and her husband want to do some kind of wedding celebration with their friends when they return to Seattle. I really want to do something special for her. Any ideas? She didn't have a wedding shower or a bachelorette party, so I could help plan that. But she is a very outdoorsy type and not too girly. Or maybe we could just do something special together- need ideas- help!

BTW, she also did a lot to help me out with my wedding and basically planned my whole bachelorette weekend.
